Huhzubendah (2496) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2014
The beer is a pinkish, salmon, light golden hue with a large fizzy head that rapidly dissipates. Aromas of oak, cherry, earth. Typical lost Abbey funk. Cherries and earth tones with an acetic finish. Not on the level of Cable Car Kriek, but still a tasty beer.

750 ml bottle shared by Huhzubendah, thanks Matt! Pours a hazy golden peach color with fading white head and moderate lacing. Aroma is sour cherries with a slight peach note. Flavor is same with bright fruit tang. Moderate carbonation, sour finish.

jackl (4567) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Sample @ RBWG Asheville After Party. Deep amber pour with a modest white head. Nose is somewhat lactic. Yoghurt meats peach and red berry skin. Taste has a nice woody presence. Some acidic cherries. Fruit leather sweetness. Mild brett. Light body, active carbonation. Very enjotable.

wedgie9 (1893) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a bottle at the late night tasting after the RBWG Grand Tasting, huge thanks to b3shine for this one. Pours light, pale, pink-tinted yellow with an average off-white head that leaves an average collar of lace. The nose is very sour with a fresh, natural cherry aroma, some funk, and a hint of light bread malt. The flavor is aggressively sour with a ton of sour, natural cherry, super funky, and a bit of light bread malt. The body is medium with heavy tannin, average carbonation, and a very long, vinous sour cherry finish. This beer is obviously an American sour, and really great.

Gold/orange pour with creamy white head and lace. Cherry sour and acidic aroma. Bretty, cherries, along with acidic. Medium body with good carbonation.

daknole (9055) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Woodshed 3.0 via Sparky. Thanks man! Pours a pinkish color with a mostly white head. Like others have said, this is not in the same solar system as CCK. But its good. Nice and tart, cherries, berries, plain yogurt. But its worlds from the CCK.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle shared @ Woodshed 3.0 via Sparky! This one, unfortunately, wasn’t even close to Cable Car Kriek. Not on the same playing field. One is pro, the other little league. Tart cherry skin, dark fruit, caramel, graham cracker, and vanilla. Absolutely a good beer but nothing memorable.

Orange and rose color. Sour with a bit of metallic. Not getting any cherry.

Hoprider (105) - DENMARK - MAY 18, 2014
Pours a hazy, murky pinkish golden color with a small white head. The nose is big on barnyard at first. Wild strawberries, unripe apples and brett. The nose suggests a tart tasting experience. The mouthfeel is light but oily. The taste is very sour with a vague hint of the sour cherries. Very complex and with only a hint of the barrel its been in. Some clear yoghurt / dairy thing going on. Totally mouthwatering sourness that leads to a tart, lingering, sour cherry aftertaste.

ThirstyBird (1541) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2014
UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 Pours a hazy honey color with a light tan head. The smell is funky, sour, lactic, cherry though subdued. The taste is very acidic, some mild cherry, very sour, vinegar ending sour and tart. Light body with active carbonation. I heard that they charged $50 for this bottle!?? Nuts...
