Bottle from Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours cherry red with a disappearing head and a delightful tart cherry flavor . The cherries taste a lot like Lambeek cherries. This one is just really fun to drink. Tastes like traditional lambic kriek, but more hearty than delicate.

kevinsenn (1601) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
On tap at Mikkeller Bar, SF. Deep red body and head. Silly smooth cherry aroma. Taste is very complex. Cherry, of course, but not as sour as I expected. Kind of tastes like every kind of cherry combined, with some malt. Very nice.

Wow this is an awesome sour! Mikkeller in SF. Poured into a tulip served at 55 degrees. Pours a deep merlot, with a foamy pink head. Huge aromas of Brett, oak, sour cherries, and red wine. Tart cherry, cherry pie, and oak Flavors with a creamy finish. This is a well balanced beer.

Bottle. Very dark purple pour with a pink/purple head that fades to a ring. Aroma is packed with cherry syrup, cherry skins, and light chocolate syrup. Tastes moderately sour with a little sweet cherry syrup too. So much sour cherry skins, blackberries, black currants and oak. Light chocolate pops up sometimes. Slighty dry in the finish. Really nice sour, so much fruit.
