Pours clear red with medium pinkish white head. Aroma of bretta, cherry, light wheat, tart. Taste is cherry, tart sour, very controlled. The cherries don't come through enough. Body is light and crisp with average carbonation.

Deep red pour with a white head. The aroma is full of cherries, oak and some light funk. The flavor is similar. I get some sweet cherry notes as well as some dark fruit and oak. There is also a nice sour and funky character in the flavor that I am really digging. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Rose colored body with a tall pink cap floating ontop. Fresh red cherry, lemon, very mild funk, aroma is milder then I expected. Taste is funky with a lemon sour, sweet cherry shows up in the after taste. Drinkable but forgetable.

Son of a rusted cap! there that’s better finally got it off now on to what this thing looks like. Cloudy ruby red pour with frothy pinkish white head. Aroma is sour funk, lemon/tart zest, and some barnyard herbal. Flavour is sour tang on the tip of my tongue, towards the middle i get some lemon zest, finishes dry with some tart that lingers like a glass of red wine...almost no sweetness. I like it.

Backlog review, tasted on 07/21/2011. Pours clear, ruby red with a healthy, soft pink head that fades, leaving a band of lacing around the glass. Smell is funk, followed by dark sour cherries, but lacking in complexity for me beyond that. Taste is sharp, tart cherry flavor that bursts and finishes quickly, dry lingering funkiness. Light body, carbonation lends a nice pop to the flavor. Decent try for the style, but lacking in depth compared to some of its Belgian brethren.

Bottle. Red/purple color. Thin off-white sheet for head. Solvent-laced funk and cherry nose. Flavors carry suit. Solvent dryness gives subtle but satisfying character to the cherry flavors. Though not overly complex, its also not just a one-note pony..there’s an earthy, rustic character woven throughout the flavors that carries the beer to a level of enjoyment where I could see and have experienced non-belgian lambics missing the mark...this isn’t a Cantillon or De Cam experience, obviously, but its certainly better than what I’d expect a mikkeller experience to go like in this territory. Finish runs a bit overly bitter for my tastes, but up until then, I was pleasantly satisfied for what it was.
