Crowler thanks to Charles. Pours a clear pink with no head. The aroma is cherry skin and funk. Thin mouth, tart cherry, medicinal, light acidity, funk, decent.

Pours out a cloudy pinkish color with an almost non existant very light pink head. Aroma is of some tart/sweet cherry, mild funky yeast, some basement. Taste is of sweet and tart cherry, crystal light, some subtle funk, light tartness. Not bad.

Bottle courtesy of Ken shared at Paulís tasting. Pours a light body with soapy lacing. Aroma is nice sour cherry and chlorine pool - light chemical presence. Mouthfeel is sour and tart with notes of sour cherries, chemical character and tart candy.

Bottle. Hazy pink pour with thin white head. Aroma and taste are cherry pie with plasticy, musty funk and light lactic notes. Dry finish. Ok.

Bottle @ Patís. Thanks, Richard. Pink pour with a shirt lived white head. Not much to the aroma. Some cherry candy, a light sourness, and some grass. Hints of lemon zest. Maybe a little bit seltzery? The flavor has a crazy coconut flavor to it, which is actually quite enjoyable though Iíd imagine unintentional. Decent cherry, though a bit on the artificial side. Subtle grass, lemon, and acidity. A touch of pie crust as well.

alobar (3101) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Pours a reddish pink color with aroma of cherry, funk, and some wood. Slightly sour cherry flavor with some oak. Slightly disappointed. Lots of potential here and it just seemed a bit weak

sherm1016 (1247) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2014
500ml bottle from Pinnochioís. Pours a bright pink color with no real head and some small, white bubbles around the edges. Aroma is some oak, cherry, light funk. Medium on the palate with light carbonation. Flavor is tart, sour cherry, oak, a little funk, with a dry, tart finish. Decent, but not as complex as a Belgian Lambic.

Travlr (15918) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Draft. Hazy light pink color. Aroma of softly sour fruit. Taste is fruity with light sourness and medium body. Not bad.

jcartamdg (2443) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Pours a hazy pink with no head. Aroma of funk, cherries, and oak. Taste is tart, funky, nothing is in your face but equally present. Really nice.

Fresh bottle. Pours bubblegum pink with nice little bubbles. Lots of carbonation in this one. I get some musty, earthy smells on the aroma and some mild cherry tones. Taste is sweet/sour cherry, funk, strawberry. Iíd love to put a bottle of this away for a year and see what happens Iíd imagine thatís the sweet spot. I still enjoyed it.
