Thanks to Richard for this one. Dark purple to brown body, little head formed, merely a mist of bubbles resting on top. The aroma is quite nice. A sweet cherry and warm sweet caramel up front, it’s backed up by a lightly tart and mildly funky touch. The flavor is less sour than I expected and overall the flavor is noticeably absent. It’s a bit bitter up front, lightly tart fruit in the back. The oak shows through. It’s pretty nice but far from outstanding.

Impressive bright red color. The aroma is loaded with brett, but it is dry and there is no sourness, at least not yet. The flavor has dragonfruit and a little cherry. Lots of sediment. Quite dry overall, and there is not a lot of fruit flavor. This might become more sour with age.

Big thanks to BDR for opening this! Dark brown color with a thin head. Aroma of brown sugar and a little cherry. Lots of vanilla and oak flavors. Some cherry and sweet malt. A little chocolate. Very little sourness. Tasty, but depending on the bugs in here, it could either get sour as heck in a year or two, or stay the same solid beer.

12.7 oz bottle. Almost clear honey brown with an ivory, dishwater head. Nose of cherry preserves and cow pasture; funky candy. Buzzy carb with a soft, airy body. Taste is tart cherry, skins and earthy oak with a residual white pepper bite. Crisp and vibrant. Very good.
