Bottle who brought this, your the man know that! Pours an amber body with a light white head. Funky brett, cherries, pedo, and a light Flemish bruin quality. Dry with a chewy pit and nuttiness. Hints of fruit skins, cherry pit, and a mild funk to finish. Low acidity and crisp carbonation. For all this time this is still a treat. Drink em if ya got em. Very good. Now someone get me a slice of bread!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by someone at Paul and Ryan’s 5000th celebration, thanks! Poured a clear reddish amber with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of sour cherries with a good amount of acid and a hint of funk. Flavor began with sour cherries but became a bit syrupy. The acid came out in the finish with a bit of backing funk.

Thanks Jimmack for sharing. Aroma is so bright and tart, woody, some light funk and juicy fruity cherries and plums. Taste is sweet/tart and very smooth and pleasant to drink. Nice amount of sourness and cherry. A little wood, vanilla undertones and grape skin, a little dry and very good. This one held up IMO.

Aroma is pretty light, has a bit of cardboard to it. The flavour is quite oxidized, not much left of what this beer used to be. Tastes like a well worn brown ale. Seems to have some sour qualities to it.
