Poured from the tap. Pinkish red with pink head. Sour cherry and vinegar aroma. Much the same taste. Fairly complex. Average sourness and sweetness. I seem to recall it being a little better at the brewery, but still very good.

Deep red in color. Honesty, the reason I love the lambic style so much is goddamn smell. If I could put the aroma of this beer into an O2 tank and breath it all day I would.

olliejobbins (733) - Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2014
375ml bottle. Pours a clear, bright ruby colour with big red head which disappears very quickly. Aroma is of straw, hay and not much fruit. But the taste is completely different. Lots of cherry, ultra dry, tart and acidic. Highly carbonates, extremely tart after taste. Mouth watering. This sounds negative but I like it.

On draft, edmunds oast. Nice tart cherry aroma. Nice tartness with a subtle oak backbone, finish with no acidity. Excellent balance.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Sample shared by a friend. The beer is a slightly hazy pinkish-red color with a thick and foamy pinkish-white head that dissipates slowly. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of funky cherries, oak and yeast. Light-bodied with flavors of tart cherries and berries, funky yeast and vinous oak. The finish is fruity with a lingering sour cherry and apple aftertaste. Really good all around.

NikkTwist (1535) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle at Monks. Candy apple red with tuffs of white foam. A little sugared sour cherry jewel. Succulent and delicious.
