Tmoney99 (10717) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Tap sample. Poured a hazy reddish copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy tart cherry, sour yeast and wood aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tart flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style.

A bold update on the kriek lambic style. Very sour with plenty of funk and dry cherry flavor. Pleasant aroma and delightful palate. Slightly fizzy. Brilliantly crafted.

Delicious dark red pour with heavy aroma of sour cherries. Notes of toasted coconut and marzipan on top of a classic Belgian tartness.

rxeight (1334) - Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2014
On tap at the GI 26th party. Cloudy light red pour. Aroma is Belgian funky sour with a touch of cherry. Tastes is sour and cherry. Compared with Belgian red, there is a lot less cherry and a touch more sour and funk. Has a very dry wine finish.

solidfunk (4029) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Very nice for style. Sour cherry really comes out with astringent oak notes. Pours cloudy red with OK head and lacing. Finishes with medium sourness and lots of tangy tartness. Thick palate. Tap at Churchkey. Nice.
