Draft at Whole Foods PM. Hazy reddish pour with frothy white head. Nose was cherry, yeasty funk. Tasted tart, with big cherry, yeasty earthiness, and finishing funkiness. Smooth and fruity.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 mL bottle shared by Gus with ebone1988 and myself. Thanks! The pour is a brighter red with some light pink or golden hues coming through. There is a good large head that "looks like a Petri dish" as so eloquently pointed out. The aroma is really funky. There is a watered down cherry with a lot of funk. We have agreed it smells like a cherry jolly rancher wrapped in a horseblanket. The flavors aware very interesting. Gus nailed it by saying that it's like you finished a cherry Slurpee and then decided to swap spit. It's got that watered down flavor with a strong yeasty funk. The mouth feel is syrupy and heavy with a decent carbonation but a strange finish. I am not a fan. Ugh.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared in a three way...Mikkeller cherry tasting with koleminer20 and Gus. Aroma is very funky, mold, skins, cherry, slight sour. Appearance is red, light light pink head, hazy. Taste is very funky, a touch of sour, cherry, fresh cherry skins, different. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, fresh cherry skin aftertaste. Overall, this isn’t unpleasant but I thought it would be better.

Got a bottle in Chicago about 2 years ago so the bottle does have some age. Pours a bright deep red color with a foamy white head. A nice fresh fuzzy cherry nose. A funky note mixed into a slight hop presence. Good and drinkable stuff.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The beer pours garnet red into the glass, capped with a soft pink foam, fleeting in structure and minimizing from one finger to a thin blanket on the surface. The aroma is oaky, almost overwhelmingly so. It dominates the other accents of artificial cherry and wheat. On the first sip, I’m disappointed. Band-aids, and cherry with an oak flavor that translates too heavily into the flavor. Not a fan, and I am hoping that this bottle is not indicative of the usual presentation of this brew. Not likely I’ll finish the glass, let alone the bottle, and as it was a $16 dollar bottle, I’m beyond disappointed.

Bottle shared thanks to Maakun at the Get Kermis to 8k tasting. Pours very hazy red with a small pink head. Massive tart cherries in the aroma with a nice soft funk, dry cellar cobweb funk. Flavour is light to moderate sweet, light bitter and moderate sour with an almond character coming out. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours very cloudy, deep, brownish red with a small uneven pink head that reduces in a partial layer an leaves no lacing on the glass. The aroma has sour cherries, lemon, some wild yeast, and just a bit of old woody barn. The taste is light sweet but not quite dry, with a medium to high acidity tingling the tongue. The palate is rather tart, somewhat oily. Very decent sour.
