750ml bottle thanks to SincereNC. I split this with a couple friends and it was pretty good. Dark and cloudy red with a sour cherry aroma to it. The flavor was acidic and sour and also had interesting cherry flavors which balanced out the beer nicely. The alcohol was well restrained and I would definitely buy this again if it were not so expensive. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-15-2010 22:28:06 --

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2010 A hazy red brick color in the pour with no head. Tart fruit aroma with a hint of vinegar. Sour fruit, cherries, balsamic vinegar, grapes and barrels. All sorts of yum in the flavor. Bright, sparkly mouth feel that finishes dry. It’s not overly complex but it is darn good!

daknole (10320) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 11, 2010
Bottle from a few years ago. Reddish brown pour, light tannish head. Aroma is tart and funky with tons of red wine vinegar and cherries. Flavor is sour but not crazy and over the top sour. Tart cherries, oak, vinegar, and some light cheesy notes. Nicely done.

Leafs93 (1896) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Pours deep red with a pillowy head. Aroma is big on cherries, oak and funk. Sour with sweetness on the finish. Acidic property lends to light mouthfeel.

Pours clear red-brown with a small head. Aroma-oak, cherry, tart, slight earthiness but clean. Taste- nice woody, cherry sourness and brett funk. Finish is long lasting, tart cherry goodness and medium, mouth-coating body. Excellent. $22.99 @ City Beer.

750 ml bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a cloudy brown color with a medium pink/white head. The nose is great; tart barrel and funky notes, cherries, noticeable acidic like notes. The flavor is great; sour, acidic, but a rich sweet cherry and mellow barrel as well. Woody, almost hot and acidic in your throat, loads of cherries. A great merge of fruit, barrel and sourness.

brokensail (13616) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 15, 2010
A: The pour is a hazy dark brown with plenty of read highlights and a thin light red head. S: A really interesting and earthy bouquet with plenty of oak cherries. There’s a definite tartness to the nose as well. T: The flavor is similar to the nose but a little more complex and interesting. In addition to the oak and earthiness there’s also some chocolate, tobacco, and perhaps leather with some nice cherry and tart flavors as well. M: The body is medium with a fairly full level of carbonation and a dry finish. D: I’d heard mixed reviews of this beer, but found it to be very enjoyable. I’d be happy to have this one again.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2010
750ml shared by my stepfather - thanks, Peter! Dark and dusky reddish pour, with a few floaties and a very thin scrim on bubbles on top. Resinous scent of cherry pits and skins, very moderate funk, and a nicely rounded wood element bringing it together. Slight sweetness in the taste is a bit distracting, and the palate is a bit on the thin side. Competent but not a mind-blowing kriek.

Bottle. Pours dark red with beige head. Nose of dark cherries. Not as sour as some. Seems to border on a kriek and a sour... they’re not necessarily the same style. Some vanilla, cherry skins, fruit, and oak. Not bad.
