Picked this up recently for $16 despite passing on it earlier in the year. It’s dark purple-red-burgundy and had a head for a moment then it disappeared. It is carbonated fine though so maybe my glass was dirty. Smells very woody like barrels and a hint of cherries and Brett. Taste is cherries, tart raspberry, very strong wood barrel flavor, not bad at all. This really doesn’t taste like lambic to me but as an American Wild Ale it works. Only problem is the price tag, the quality if this beer does not justify $16 and I would never buy it again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-04-2011 16:54:15

Pours an amazing ruby with finger white head that leaves quickly. Smell is full of cherry, raspberry, and green apple. Taste is bit of bile, lactic cherry, super red fruit and dominant raspberry flavor. Light to mid body, refreshing. This reminded me of Rose de Gambrinus, very well done.

Great tart crisp fruit flavors and nose. A little heavy on the wood. Not one for the cellar. Great aperitif with some cheese.

Bottle. Poured into a Duvel glass a murky, deep ruby color with a white head that quickly settles to form a tiny collar. Tart cherry in the nose right off the bat followed by a slight funkiness. Light/medium mouthfeel with carbonation. Very sweet upfront with both cherry and the raspberry fruit flavors but then transtions to a sour/tart funkiness, not overly funky but there. I find myself rather surprised how well I like this beer. I would for sure drink this again and am glad I have a second bottle to cellar.

Pours a hazy brown with a slight pink tint. Aroma of cherry pie. Lightly sweet with cherry. Bitter and tannic. Light sourness. Some notes of wood on the finish, maybe some cream and vanilla.

Draught at Sour Fest. Redish amber with very small white head. Aroma of woody funk with some caramels and unidentifiable fruit. Taste is sour funk with prevalent woodiness. Palate has medium carbonation and body.

Bottle. Pinkish orange color. Tastes very woody, slightly sweet with quite the sour punch. Fizzy. Fun, but nothing awesome.

brystmar (1313) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2013 Massively over-carbed, despite having zero head. Pretty body. Fresh raspberries initially in the nose, turns sulfuric, then back to fruit. Taste is quite nice but subdued. Seems slightly watered down. Gimme a more concentrated version and my cheeks will turn red. Just had this again (3/23/13) and enjoyed it much more than last time. Fruit is more pungent, not as aggressively carbonated, tasty.
