Bottle 750ml (bottle nr #7) @ TFODRBSG12
Pours clear brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of vinegar, sour, tart, oak and barnyard. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium to heavy sour with a long dry sour finish. Body is full, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

MartinT (8661) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Sour cherries, barnyard and red vinegar coincide in this dry and tart creation.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy red.
-Carbonation feels natural, which helps the flavor profile greatly.
-The acetic finish may be a tad too much for some, but I like it.
-The mouthfeel is soft, which helps drinkability greatly.

DuffMan (8198) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle, from b3shine (thanks Beau!), shared at RBAG 2014. Medium amber brown, spare off white head. Kriekish, unripened cherries, strong lactic sourness (very "American" in this respect). Very tasty.

Had this at Where The Wild Beers Are. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Tart acid, soft wood on the nose. Bright acid, tart with a light amount of acid initially. Warm with some funky musk, and long acid into the finish. Very tasty.
