Tart, cherry, cranberry, bretty-funk. All present but all integrated seamlessly together with just enough sweetness to keep it balanced. Finishes crisp. Delicious. I just wanted to more and more!

Rate #1100! Bottle from the brewpub itself. Pours a dark red color, somewhat opaque, with a one finger off white head on top. Aroma of sour cherries, vinegar, vinous grape notes. Very nice. Flavor is a medley of sour cherries and vinegar first, but with some beautiful oak and vinous notes that give this a huge punch of flavor and depth. Lots of bretty funk and big lacto bite. The wine notes continue to emerge as it warms. Some nice sweetness that balances out the sour beautifully. Full bodied for a sour brew, with lots of carbonation. A top rated beer for good reason.

emartell (235) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - MAR 15, 2014
Aromaa intensos, agradables y acordes al estilo. Notas acidas y frutales. Se distinguen ciertas notas citricas, cerezas, algo de vainilla y maderas. En cuanto a su apariencia, colorcobrizo claro, carbonatacion de media a alta, cuerpo redondo y cabeza de espuma baja de mediana retencion. En boca acidez inicial, buen equilibrio, final frutal. Al paladar es una cerveza fresca y agradable, sin embargo y cómo lo indica el estilo, acida, sobre todo en un principio, posteriormente se equilibra con ciertas notas dulces proporcionadas por los esteres frutales y por las cerezas añadidas. En resumen es una excelente cerveza del estilo, notas acidas pero sumamente bien equilibrada, terminando en sabores frutales bastante elegantes y bien definidos.

Bottle at Monk’s. Had several times in past. Poured deep ruby with fizzy head. Flavor of tart cherries, plums, oak. Medium bodied. Phenomenal sour.

Salmoniform (482) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Amber hue with fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is fruit, acid, Brett, vinegar, apples. Mouthfeel is great with light body and high carbonation. Taste is dry tartness with sour following and CO2 sharpness in the finish. Overall this is a really nice brew.

2012 vintage on tap at Whole Foods. Pours a pale clear brown color without much head. Nice medium sourness that isn't at all harsh. Mild cherry.

Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear light amber golden color with an off white head. Aroma is quite tart with hints of cherry and wine. Flavor is also very tart. Cherries a bit more present in the taste. Light sour lingers into the finish. Delicious.

@Basunen: Mycket fina körsbärstoner och en ganska trevlig syrlighet. Mycket välbalanserad. Nästan i klass med Cantillon Kriek. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2014 Red brown. Aroma is vinegar, malt - looks and smells like a classic flanders red. Lovely so far. Taste is perfect sour level - outstanding straight up sour i’ve had. Malt is so well balanced and barrel aging adds but not overpowering. Overall, a classic beer.
