Bottle. Aroma is huge cherry skins, moderate funky yogurt, oak, vinegar and light blueberry. Tastes great. A tad astringent but it’s still great. Moderately sour. Acidic cherry skins, yogurt, red grapes, vinegar and leather. For the price this is hard to beat.

750 ml bottle shared, purchased at Wilbur’s Total Beverage. Clear reddish appearance with a small head. Sweet and tart cherry aroma. Similar flavor, sweet, tart and fruity cherries, a little more sweet than sour. Nice puckering mouth feel. A little one dimensional, pretty good overall.

Beerman6686 (6009) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2016
Poured pinkish ruby red with a pink head. Aroma was of tart cherries, light funk and mineral character. Flavor was way more tart than expecting, cherry forward for sure, finishes quick and dry. Tasty for sure.

thanks for sharing this Alex. Lots of cherry flavors, real cherry pie type cherry flavors, then odd sharp gueuze that you come to realize from Lindemanns.
