Pour nice pale red, preparing you for the nose which is a sour cherry with a hint of acid. No head and minimal carbonation. The palate is clean and even. The sour cherry flavor does not fail to deliver on the appearance and smell. I liked a previous review that mentioned the idea of cherry soda. Not a bad beer, but I like more of a natural cherry flavor like you find in the more funky Belgian beers rather than the fake feel of this beer.

Pours a vibrent almost flourescent pink grapefruit pulp or juice color. Virtually no head. You can smell the acidity of the sour cherries and the rich fruity aromas. The flavor is both sweet and sour, the finish is a bit lactic. At first taste this brew is simply phenomenal and then the bugs and oak shine through a little bit too much and in a strange way. However this strange flavor grew on me equalling an enjoyable experience, yet leaving something to be desired at $22 for a 22oz bomber

750mL courtesy of mdfb79. Poured a cloudy pink, white zinfandel color with a fleeting head. No lace. Aroma is unreal: giant tart cherry pie, funky sour, full kriek nose with lactic sourness, slight vinegar, spicy oak. Wow! Taste is full on sour: slight acedic burn, nice sweet and sour cherry play with lemon squares, lime, sweet cherry pie. Really fantastic.

deyholla (5974) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Bottle thanks to brewedawakening. Poured a hazy pinkish red with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was a nice combination of a light sweet cherry note with a more dominant tart cherry note. Flavor was a bit sweet but quickly became tart with cherries and a nice dry finish.

Wash. DC tasting. light reddish color, no head. aroma, full of cherry sourness, light notes of vinegar and wood/oak sourness. flavors, sour cherries that along with the barrel aging leave a nice tingly palate. Med-high carbonation with plenty of cherries, there is some lingering peppery notes of the oak barrel with light mustiness and vinegar. Here and there, there are spots of sweetness that are balanced out by a more sour finish. Lots of yum.
