Dark brown color, small white head, great funky aroma with cherry notes, medium body, low carbonation, pretty sour in mouth, tart but drinkable, tones of red fruit notes, very long aftertaste. Great stuff!

Bottle from Sparky. Pours a murky, opaque, slightly reddish brown, with a very small head. Aroma is cherries, oak, with lots of acidity and some funk. Taste is mild-medium sweet, very sour. Dry, tart finish. Light-medium body, soft carbonation. Pretty intense sour.

375ml bottle shared by jsprime. murky brown with a lasting tan head. a massively complex and endlessly enjoyable dark sour ale. cherry intensity is as high as in any kriek ive ever had and the brown ale base supports the fruit and wood aging exceptionally well. just incredibly well done. thx jeff, another 5 from your cellar.

Via my Secret Santa. Thanks man! I’ve waited a LONG time to try this.You give this beer some carbonation and it would be perfect. Aroma was perfect. Strong sour cherry, oak and a huge hit of funk. Pour was a flat medium brown with no bubbles or head. Taste was perfect as well. That huge sour cherry and oak flavor filled the mouth and made the top of the mouth tingle. So sour and delicious Vinegar and funk got stronger as it warmed. Very intense beer. Problem is there wasn’t any carbonation. With that huge flavor, I still immensely enjoyed this beer but carbonation would’ve made it that much better

Rusty brown/red with minimal head. Aroma is cherry, sour funk, fruit cake, red currants. Medium-full body, slightly slick mouthfeel, great balance if sweet and sour on the palate. Taste is sour cherries, plum, red currants, blood orange. Delicious!

2011. Tart, acetic, yet somehow lacks the depth of fruit flavor that the 2012 cherishes. More grain than cherry; tasty, yet unspectacular. 2012 > *

I enjoyed this amazing beer at Nodding Head Brewery on June 2 during Philly Beer Week. My son and I had 16 different Sour/Wild Ales that day, and this was a standout for me. Funky, Tart, Spicy and Cherrylicious!

Pours dark mahogany with a red twist. Nose is cherries, vanilla, dried fruit, hay. Taste is just lovely with cherries upfront, mixed in with vanilla, hints of butterscotch, almonds, dried fruit. Very good.

Really good sour with a lot of cherry flavor. Nice oak from the barrels and some floral notes as well.
