Snifter pour at Eclipse release party. Aroma and flavor was cherry and a tart, peach/apricot yogurt aspect. Both CC and CCK seem similar. CCK may be slightly better, but I didn't have them side-by-side, so... Anyway, excellent beer!

Clean crisp fresh cherry and light raspberry yogurt parfait. Soft lactic sourness is pleasant. Dry. Refreshing. Quite drinkable. Tasty easy drinking clean well balanced sour fruit ale from america.

Smells juicy - tons of cherries, a little cinnamon, a touch of funk. Finishes with a touch of acetic acid/acetone. Despite rumors of explosive bottles, this one poured out just fine. Rose-Orange with a touch of foam that quickly faded. Taste is more complex than the nose. Cherries dominate - juicy and jammy with a light lemony finish. Light feel, medium carb. One of the better American wilds Iíve had.

Bottle at Toronado with my wife. So pumped to finally try this one!! Pour is slightly hazy magenta with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Big sour cherries, oaky, nice spice, cinnamon, raspberries, a touch of nutmeg, somewhat tannic - though well-balanced fruity and slightly sweet. Seriously smells like cherry pie and no signs of vinegar or aging. Taste is big sweet and sour cherries, raspberry, red wine, slightly tannic, oaky, fruit skin, balanced beautifully with spice - cinnamon, pie crust, light vanilla, and nutmeg with a big sour fruity finish. Medium body with medium-to-high carbonation. This beer is a thing of beauty and I canít believe I got a chance to try this one. I donít know if it got better or worse with age, but WOW this was something special!

Woodshed 2.0. Bottle share courtesy of Dak. It pours with a full up opaque ruby red body with murky grapefruit juice colored hues supporting a white head of foam. The aroma offers up sour vinegar, an acidic note or two and a light degree of berry fruitiness. The taste is just plain tart to begin with and then running into acidity and vinegar mixing with a mild berry fruit and grapefruit like tartness. Nice stuff.

RBSG Bottle. Pours with a bright pink hued body and a medium sized off-white head that slowly fades to the acidity. Aromas are huge and jammy fruits, tons of cherries, noticeable acidity, medium Lost Abbey funk notes, delicate oak nuances. Flavors are hugely tart with strong fruit, medium funk. Surprising amount of bready malt left behind. Light oak tannin, medium carbonation, dry and puckering. Good as expected.

Big thanks to Josh(jbuddle) for opening this. A- reddish pink with a beautiful haze and a soft pillow of white, cloud like head. N- sour cherry, oak, funky sourness T- a depth of cherry flavor, both sweet and sour cherry. great oakiness is coming through from sip to finish. sour fruit with a suttle sweetness. mmm this is good. M- light spritzy carbonation, smooth dry finish O- this one gets best in style IMO. by far the best kriek i have had.

Bottle part of a Cable Car vertical @ Woodshed 2.0! This one was cracked by Dak and was by far the best of the day! Bright red plum pour with ample carbonation resulting in a wispy rose-colored head. Nose milder than the flavor but shows tart cherry skin, sweet balsamic, funk, and lemon zest. Acidic, green and ripened fruit. Incredibly balanced. Has the same cherry and apple pie filling as Selinís Grove The Phoenix Kriek and Cantillonís Lou Pepe Kriek. Cinnamon, fresh dough and flaky pie crust, maraschino, raspberry and prickly pear jam. Sour and funky with a noticeable sweetness. Delicious!
