yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle. An unclear, brownish beer with a small, off-white head. More or less a rim of bubbles actually. Vinegarish aroma with berries. Lacks a bit on complexity. The flavor is much the same, although more berry sour than vinegarish. Dry, almost palate cleansing and maybe a bit hard on the carbonation. Overall, a decent one, but not impressive. 110820

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 4, 2011
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.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2011
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.

mcberko (14406) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2014
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.

750 c&c from Brewforia. Pours clear and ruddy with a transient pinkish head. Aroma of cherry and sour. Flavor is tart/sour cherry. Finishes wonderfully tart/sour. Note: There’s a lot of carbonation, but it didn’t come out all at once.
