3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
25oz bottle from the shop. Excited to try this one, pours a nice lighter red hue, clearer than expected. The cherry is potent in the nose, a little acidic too. Once it hits the palate the flavors are a bit all over the place. I got a real bready cherry pastry flavor more than anything else. The oak barrels must have imparted a bit too much since the cherry was light and delicate, which was fine, just not what I was expecting. Decent offering, but high price tag might not have people running to it. Not sure if this one would get any better with time.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle at dak’s 1/2/11.
pours orange and bright... kinda ruby grapefruit-like.
aroma= onions, cherries, pale malt, rubber bands, cinnamon-y funkiness and vinegar-y tartness.
flavor= the same. it has a little woodiness and red wine vinegar too. it is tart but it feels watered down. it also lacks depth and complexity. 6/4/5/3/12

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a deep ruby grapefruit color, pink to orange with a very small white head that vanishes immediately. Some lightly sweet cherry aromas, very fruity, sort of smells a bit like sweet tarts, powdery candy like in places. Interesting. Medium bodied, tart and bretty, but moves into a big juicy cherry pie filling flavor, not quite dripping with cherries. Subdued and restrained. Very tasty. Light funk and brett, moving toward a dry bretty finish with some more lingering cherry. Quite nice.

I kinda rushed this tasting and had it in a solo cup. Usually when there’s a hot chick pouring the beer sucks. There was a really hot chick pouring this, fucking crazy. Like a well made kriek sour made by the best in Belgian. Cherry adds not overwhelms the delicacy of bretting a witt beer. Out-fucking-standing.
