Strong sour cherry aroma, very smooth and full of flavour. An interesting beer but the cherry reminds me of medicine so I can’t rate it to highly.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This porter mix pours an opaque black with a minimal head that rapidly fades to a ring around the edge of the glass. The aroma is sour black cherries with a bit of roasted grain and a nice bretty funk. The taste is very defined with definite boundaries between them. It starts with the sour cherry wine that combined with the brett almost makes you pucker up with the sourness and slight medicinal taste, It then rapidly changes into the roasted wheat flavours of the porter leaving the impression of almost burnt toast in my mouth. The beer then finishes off with a pleasant bitterness that when combined with the medium body and high carbonation leave you thinking ‘what the hell was that?’

Bottle from "The Local Taphouse" in Sydney. Pours a black colour wirh a good brown head that stays a while. The wheat is really present in the aroma, together with some cherry and dough. Funky flavour from the wheat and brettanoncymes. Sour cherries, coffee, dark fruits, dark chocolate and some light licorice in the end. Good body with a lingering bitter finish. Medium carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. Overall a very interesting beer, I really liked it. This one is saved by the barrel cherrie wine imo, and it makes it a really good beer.

330ml bottle @ Malja, Kuopio
Pours black with a white head. Aroma of roasted malts, hints of tobacco, ash, sour cherries and leathery bretta notes. Taste is smootish, roasty and slightly yeasty with notes of bretta, smoke and leather with hints of cherries. Finish is roasty, smoked and leathery with a touch of bretta and sour cherries. Quite unique but a bit unbalanced.

Bottle 330ml @Beer Hunters
Opaque black color, steady brownish head. "Smokey", kirsebaer aroma. Very light body for 7.6% beer! Some tobacco notes, toasted flavors, some cellar ... more or less toasted finish. Where is cherry? Where is bretta? Dissapointing.

330 ml bottle. O'Hara's, Tampere, Finland.
Black colour with a red hue and small tan head.
Cherry, red berries, sourness and farmyard in a funky aroma. The flavour is roasted malt (which apparently is wheat), ashy darkness, sourness and hoppy bitterness. Some cherry tones there too. Cough drops, cherry liqueur and stout put together.
