First one to rate! Shared with fellow ratebeer friend. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, cherries, wood, earthy, and very subtle funk. The flavor was of sweet malt, cherries, tart, wood, and an earthy note. It had a light feel on the palate with medium to low carbination. The flavor profile on this one was shooting hgh on cherries. Really good sour cherries. Right on the money for balance between sourness from brew to sourness from the cherries. Super crisp and flavor stayed with me for a while. Great brew at night or great beer for a hot day. Awesome!!!!!

Wonderfull cherry aroma. 750 ml bottle at restaraunt in city center. Poured dark orange with big cherry nose and slight wood. Flavor is not super powerful cherry as one would think from aroma but finish is cherry. Intermediate flavors of oak cedar funk wet grass and some cheesy nature. Full of flavors cherry the most abundant.

Had to try this cherry concoction due to my like of their Lambik daliesque. 750 ml bottle with red wax top thank you to RT from the other site. Cracked and pretty carbonated as you could see foam bubbling slightly over the top. Cherries came out right away huge. Pour very carbonated with no head, real big bubbles and bubbling up from bottom of the flute. Poured also light ruby red and chunk floaters inside, not bad as obviously bottle conditioned. Any longer in bottle it may have been pure foam. Pour cold. let warm up and cherry fills the area. Since yeast and or bacteria was present you could taste the sour dough bread type here. The cherry dominates but the funky breayd yeast is a pleasant addition. Flavor is very tart and acedic acid is the culprit. The tart sour nature lends to the overall dryness and cherries were huge in the finish. NOT SWEET at all more tart and crisp, which makes it so very quaffable.

750 ml bottle with red wax cap. Really nice reddish color. Some yeast in places but a nice, garnet thoughout. Very nice head to begin with. Some nice lacing. Aroma screams black cherry. Some great belgian yeast notes. Very full and inviting. Big fruit flavor upfront. Slight, malty backbone with a huge black cherry flavor. Yeasty flavor from the sourness comes thru and is well balanced with the huge fruit presence. Very good mouthfeel-great body considering the dryness of sour ales. A greatbeer-theres a great balance between the fruit and beer itself. Not overly sweet. The funk presence of hay goat and barny yard it obvious. Yet the cherries reaaly take it to next level. I enjoy a fruit lambic/sour ale with the subdued funk and the predominate fruit. Some may like the reverse but for me this was a gvreat balanced experience.

Poured light ruby color. Very small white head with spritzer like carbonation that brought out the most delicious cherry aromas. Flavor was mostly cherries and very tart. The added dimension of horse barn and hayloft added to the great experience. Finished dry with tart like cherry yogurt.

750 bottle red wax top labeled 2011. Poured pinkish color. Really carbonated but no head. Carbonation brought out intense cherry and raspberry aroma and some wet oak. Taste initially mildly tart with a mixture of oak and wet hay. Cherry predominates in beginning and then finishes to a dry Low alcohol cherry brandy.

Cherry cherry and more cherry. Behemoth cherry aroma from a real super carbonated brew. No head but super biggie carbonation of tiny bubbles that brought out tart cherries. The flavor matched with a incling of rustic oak and cellar wet grass hay notes. Super dry super great cherry and raspberry finish. I do not like cherry flavored beer generally but other side of coin I love cherry lambic, due to added funk as you all say.

Had at brewery by The Draft in Oceanside, light red orange color. Incredible dark sweet bing cherry aroma. Firm slightly sweet initial flavor, then a tart sour nite from the soured beer that balanced so well with the addition of cherries. Some oak and pine notes and wonderful wee little bubbles with no head but nothing but cherry effervescence. Finished very Chardonnay dry.
