Tap at the BH on Bainbridge. Dark brown with red highlights, foamy dense lightly pink white head. Nose sour cherries and dark malt, taste medium bitter with fleeting bitterness, strongly sour with a nice lactic and malt base, fades to a bready finish. Clean, full, crisp and refreshing body. Head laces, overall very dry and pleasantly high in degree of woodiness, a treat for the gums. Complexity wise, it’s a tad too straightforward for best in class, but it’s still up there with the Belgians.

(draft @ Super Sub & Six Pak - DuBois, PA) Copper pour with a thin head. Nice tart aroma with some light sweetness from the cherries. Flavor starts off tart but fades quickly and leaves a rather odd finish. Can’t really describe it but it almost reminded me of a band-aid.

[5629-20130816] Tap. Mild aroma, not much coming through but a little cherry fruit. Slightly hazy, dark red brown body with a quick foamy white head. Mild watery cherry fruit grain flavour. Light-medium body has a sour cherry kick in the background. Interesting. (5/3/7/3/11) 2.9

alobar (3159) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2014
Reddish brown pour with aroma of tart cherry, oak, and a touch of funk. Modest but evident sour cherry flavor upfront with some oak and a little funk. Very nice.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2014
On tap at Barcade. Aroma is old cherries, some iron, and faint red wine. Pours dark red with minimal head and lacing. Taste is mildly sour with cherries, some iron, and a nice heart yeast. Overall, a really lame bruin with more of an old cherry taste instead of a solid sour presence. Expected better.

egajdzis (5651) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Murky red brown color with a small, light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of bacterias, wood, cherries, leather, and some vinegar. Taste of red wine vinegar, lacto, tart cherries, wood, and a sour finish.
