4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12.68 oz. bottle from the brewery. Batch 062212, Vintage 2012. Brown/ red color with a thin ring of head around the tulip glass. Nose is interesting. Oak, Brett, tart cherry and funky yeast. A light cherry pie filling nuance. Layered complex sour flavors…. White wine characteristic from the initial sip. Grape and cherry follow with a tart/ mildly sour oak. Subtle sugar sweetness. Mild mouth-puckering tartness. Sourness lingers for a few seconds and then gone. Very drying texture that takes the moisture from my tongue. The layers of flavor is really impressive in this brew. The wine barrel with the cherries really added amazing flavor to this brew. Really amazing stuff! Did I say I think this is amazing???

Bottle shared with California-dwelling brother-in-law. Cheers Tommy! Pours reddish brown with a small white head. Big fruit and sour aromas, cherry definitely. Taste has big sourness and hints of wood. Very nice, like a good kriek.

Pours hazy amber with low white head. Aroma of red grapes and berries, sweet cherry, muscovado, some but not much bretta. Taste is big, balanced fruit sour with clear barrel notes. Light, slick body with average carbonation. A brilliant beer, bought two with me, would have bought more if not for fear of overweight charges.

Bottle from the USA cheers Phil; hazy brown pour with a tinge of red small off white head, fruity aroma, first sip is a big sour cherry hit, backed up with apples grapes and some funky farmyard action, there might be horse blanket, but I’ve never eaten one of those.

Mega thanks to Chris for this...sour but not too sour, some hints of cherries, mild carbonation (2 years old) smooth, sweet, not cloying and delicious.

Head disappears fast, and carbonation is low ish, aroma is slight sour, but primarily smells of Pinot noir. Some fruity aromas, cherry. Some peppery smells as well. Taste is a vinous sour, slight fruit, pinot very noticeable and maybe a slight peppery taste. Also a slight dryness like Pinot and a very slight bitter finish. Overall very well balanced. None of the flavors or sourness dominates. Awesome!! Only ding is the lack of carbonation. This one NEEDS to be drank at cellar temp~ 50 degrees. The flavors and balance really come out then. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear brown with a tint of pink and thin off white head that quickly disappears. Aromas of funk, with a mild tartness with cherries. Flavors of an ever so mild initial cherry tartness quickly disappearing to some sour funk and followed up with a slight oak finish. As this beer starts to warm, it really opens up. The wine flavors start to become more present along with the sourness mellowing out. I might add, sours are not usually my favorite style.
