Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & biegaman -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Batch 002. Pours a cloudy ruby-orange with tiny floaties and a small diminishing white head. Amazing aroma is funky and yeasty along with spices, oak and cherries -- nice and complex. Flavour of tart cherries, yeast, some oak, spices and more -- wow, this is so easy to drink! Medium to full bodied. One of the best versions of the style Iíve had.

HogTownHarry (6127) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2007
Bottle (375ml - batch 02). Shared with blankboy, biegaman and tupalev - my bottle via my buddy Austin. Hazy orange with a frothy off-white head, floaties, awesome. Malty fruity aroma, lemon juice, funky yeast, oak resin, sugar and soft spice - really smooth and balanced. Taste - lemon, yeast, funk, sourness, melanged and blended - excellent. Pretty thick acidic body, medium finish - another solid RR.

iím surprised. these crazy RR belgians are always gross and bretty so i thought iíd wasted another 13$. aroma confirmed my fears but the taste is a nice surprise. sour cherryís and a little farm funk. a little sweet and dare i say refreshing. not too bad.

thanks Zeswaft. largely red with orange and brown undertones. brown mustard head that lasts. opaque from the yeast. pretty sour smelling, but itís mostly from the yeast and is all just bret. i canít tell how people get much more out of aroma than bret when bret is there. i get honey and definitely some cherries. actually dry smelling too. this is pretty great tasting too. maybe a little simple. maybe a little overcarbonated. this isnít the best of its style by any means, but i still love it.

Whoa, this dude is SOUR. I know this review wont be glowing, but I am just not into THIS sour of a brew. I ahve had a few sour ones, but this takes the cake. Taste way too much like wine.
