A dark red wine color with a little bit of white head around the rim. Smells of sour cherry, red wine, vanilla, honey. Taste is a medium cherry sour, some vanilla, red wine flavors, dry wine finish, a little bit of grape juice taste. A tiny bit of hop bitter at the end. Refreshing and tolerable sourness that has enough sweetness and a dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2013 bottle. Pours a deep cranberry red with a fizzy cranberry pink head. Aroma is cherry with a slight buttery/waxey smell that I think may be from the oak. Taste is tart/sour pie cherry with a little vanilla. Slightly sweet and a dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pentaz (1240) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2014
Draught 2012 ed. @ Mikropolis. Pours opaque dark red with a small pink head. Aroma is very fruity, almond, cherries, cherry-stones, oak and hints of brett. Taste is light+ sweet, bitter and light tart. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Finishes dense cherry fruity, dry and almond bitter. Iíd prefer this to be tarter to achieve freshness and greater drinkability. Aging might correct this.. Time will tell.

kramer (4989) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a beautiful dark ruby red body under a fizzy effervescent pink-tinged head that faded quickly to a thin ring. The aroma is really intense on the cherry with lighter notes of oak and sour funkiness. The flavor is equally intense with the cherries. I canít imagine how many cherries went into a barrel of this in order to make it so crazy intense. Itís like drinking sour cherry pie filling. Just a slight tartness from the yeast, the sour notes seem to come directly from the cherries. Just lightly acidic, just enough to make the cherries brighten up a bit and shine. A light oaky tannic note late on the finish. Medium bodied, really walking the line between sweet and sour. Nice fizzy pinpoint carbonation. Pretty nice beer, most of these Milkeller beers in this series that Iíve had are really pretty tasty.

375 ml bottle to snifter (2013 vintage; shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a mostly opaque black cherry with foamy pink head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells sour and a little funky with notes of tart cherries. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly tart mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Looks. Dark cherry red, small pink head. Smells..sour cherries, oak/wood, farm funk. Tastes...loads of cherry, nicely tart, sophisticated sour, cherry pip and oak wood, dry finish with a hint of booze. Sensational.
