375ml red wax bottle shared by Ed5388. Poured a cola looking deep dark brown with lots of clinging bubbles and a foamy beige head. Aroma is great, very sour, funky, some horse blanket, sour dark cherry, chocolate batter, dry dark toast. Body is medium, acidic, stronger carbonation. Flavor is the same as the aroma. Great beer.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a small but well retained head.
The aroma is huge on sour cherries, it’s rich, funky, and fruity with some light oakiness.
The flavor is very tart with a lot of sour cherry, lightly sweet and lightly oaky with a dry finish.

Tasting at Chez Bruce. Thanks to our Bruce once again. Hazy dark red - amber - brown beer. Small pale tan head. Palate is light and dry and crisp. Flemish red sourness, quite sharp. Little balsamic and a touch of dark fruits and lemon. Light dry finish. Not bad just a little spiky.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared in London - cheers to Bruce. Pours clear brown with a bubbly, dissipating tan head. Nice tangy, leather berries on the nose, wood, raspberry. Light to medium sweet flavor with assertive sour bite, nice funky twang, more leathery fruits. Medium bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Quenching sour berry finish, more leather, some brown bread sweetness. Lacks a bit of mouthfeel but solid overall.
