Bottle @ home. $15 for a 750mL seems a little steep but with only 600 bottles, I’m sure they won’t have a problem selling it quickly. Burgundy red appearance with a cream colored head. Intense, toasty cherry, moderately spicy, almond aroma. Fairly tart, strong, sweet cherry, slightly tangy, spicy, belgian yeasty flavor. Pretty tasty but a little too overly sweet for my taste.

Surprisingly so good and drinkable. Big carbonation, but very god tart cherry taste. Saison yeast is secondary. Great drinkability.
Thanks Jason B.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Falling Rock Beer Tasting with Dr. Bill on 10/13/2012. This brew pours a cloudy reddish-brown color with a medium thick off-white head that recedes slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherries and bready malt. Medium body with a mildly sour cherry character and flavors of yeast and grainy malt. The finish is slightly tart with a cherry aftertaste. Above average overall.

A broownish red ale. Sweet cherries. It could be tarter and perhaps have some more sourness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep reddish pour on tap with off white head, aroma had big sweet notes of cherry, spices, bread, touch of other fruit in there but really dominated by the jammy pie cherries. Taste had a bit of the medicinal quality from the cherry, but had notes of spice, biscuit, touch of earth and grass to back it up, but the sweetness of the cherries was a bit too much.

ugh. cloudy dark purplish body. cherry cough syrup everywhere. medicinal, syrupy, sharp flavor; tart and "sourish" with the smell of jerky brine and paprika and the taste of robitussin. unpleasantly forward alcohol and little to no saison character at all. an absolute mess and by far the worst beer Funkwerks has produced.
