3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Pale rose in colour with fizzy carbonation. Aromas are of cherry blossom, mild funk, and dry pale malt. Flavours are of sour cherry, lemon pith, a bit of wood and cream. Light bodied with a delicate sourness. Not really a patch on the classic Belgian krieks as it lacks intensity, but nice enough as a light bodied alternative.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bright cherries and a lasting acidity. Some note of cinnamon or spice that runs through the whole beer and leaves a bit of a strange finish.

Bottle corked and caged, poured a light reddish color, almost a hazy pink. Aromas of soft raspberries, cherries and light funk. Flavors are the same with some oak added to it. Not overly sweet, not overly dry, nice mix of the fruit and sourness, great beer overall.

Pours a rose water amber hue with a thin white active head. Nose with subtle barnyard, blue cheese, and unripe berries. Champagne, lively bubbling burst on the tongue carries notes of cranberry, dry champagne, and a mossy oak finish. A faint hint of soap suds at the end.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle shared in the DLD line. A fruity sour that seemed really well balanced. You could still pick out the cherries. The fruit was not dominated by the funk. Pleasant.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Huge thanks to deftim13! Pours a super hazy fruit punch with zero carbonation. Funky/tangy raspberry sourness in the nose. Flavor starts a tart, lactic raspberry and ends sour cherry pie filling. Lightly dry and somewhat bitter/acidic. Feels relatively thin. I think that lack of carbonation hurt this one, in my opinion, both in the flavor promotion and palate. Nonetheless, enjoyable.
