3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: This beer is an incredibly vibrant red color with a minimal off-white head forming and dying away quickly.
S: Certainly smells kriek-like. Nice cherry aromas along with a mild funk, primarily of oak and grass. Some wet/dampness to the oak aromas. The cherries are a bit on the sweet side, but there is a nice acidity.
T: Semi-sweet/cherry pie-like, but there is a nice tartness which is fairly refreshing. Plenty of cherry flavor with only a minimal amount of funk. Still, some oak is there and helps to provide a bit of dryness.
M: Medium in body with a somewhat soft carbonation.
O: Solid beer overall, could have used a little more tartness, but it was good.

Had at GABF and loved it. But the bottle was only good. Dull, muddy reddish-brown with no head. The aroma is raspberry with light wood and light cherry. Smells fairly simple. Very fruity, almost jammy finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy reddish brown color with a mostly lasted frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour, yeast and tart fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour fruit flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer that exceeded my expectations.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a fairly clear dark amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out lots of sour cherries and raspberries, oak barrels, and wood. Flavour brings out both sour cherries and sour raspberries, oak barrels, and some wild yeast notes. Very tart fruity, with the oak quite prominent. Very well-made - the fruits are a little muted, but they’re well situated. Not overly sour, but very well-made. Great stuff.
