3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy crimson. A wispy pink head appears after some vigorous pouring but fades away quickly. The bouquet is a blend of balsamic and white vinegar, soft cherry and caramel, like cherry cola. There’s a little more cola in the flavor, too, with brown sugar and caramel. Balsamic vinegar settles in after that, bringing with it tart/sweet cherries. Not too complex, but good. Carbonation is a little low for style. Medium-light body. Acidity is nice.

yum yum, what a surpise, no mint or toothpaste flavors. Great cherryes, light lactosey, dry finish. Awesome stuff here

Such a great beer...glad I picked up a few bottles! This one has some qualities of a few of the best Kriek’s I’ve had the pleasure to taste. Cherry skin, graham cracker, caramel, brown sugar, Macintosh apples, yeast, vanilla, oak, and berries. So complex and delicious! Get one if you can!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted on 1/24/15 from a 750mL swing-top bottle at Swilliams’ bonfire, obtained from the group EtF trade. Pours hazy pink tinted orange with an average white head that leaves average bubbly lace. The nose is very sour, cherry, very funky cherry pit, some cherry pie spice. The flavor very sour but balanced, with fresh cherry, almondy cherry pit, and some cherry pie spice and crust. The body is medium and tannic with lively carbonation and a long spiced and sour cherry finish.

Shared by BDR; thanks Brad. Some yeast aroma. Cherry flavor, and it is tart. Yeast in the flavor as well. Sour cherry flavor, mixed with the moderately sour, balsamic flavors of the underlying beer.

I think this beer is severely underrated on Ratebeer. It is a delicate, tart, sour ale. All of the flavors are so profound and mesh well together. The oak and Cherry are very noticeable, but not overbearing. The palate is silky silky smooth and delicate. Very drinkable. It glides over your tongue with absolutely no friction. I would compare it to Prairie Artisan's Cherry Funk, but honestly Los Innovadores blows Cherry Funk out of the water. IT'S SO DAMN GOOD

It poured a bright red color with a white head. The aroma was of cherry, tart, oak, vinegar and some berry. The taste was of sour cherry, some tartness, oak, and a mild cherry finish. Very tasty.
