Pour from a bottle thanks to Greg. Dark brown reddish in color. Tart fruity nose to it. Smooth in your mouth with plenty of prickly carbonation. Lovely flavors of sour cherry, and some underlying raspberry. Fairly light in body but not thin. Easy to drink and not overly sour or puckering. I would drink this anytime. Good solid sour beer.

Bottle. Pours a murky light brown with a reddish tint and a thick tan head. Aroma of sour malt, sour milk, sweet candy. Flavor is quite tart initially with sweetness following and a malty, bready finish. Nice palate, very easy to drink for a sour. Tasty! 7/4/8/4/15 [3.8/5]

BBB63 (6373) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 16, 2010
Bottle from my main man Jon and served in a Corsendonk glass: Deep ruby and mahogany hue with a lasting fizzy and frothy slightly off-white head with nice lace. The aroma is wild yeast vinegar and damp basement vapours, tart cherry and peaches, floral and dusty esters with a moderate french oak note. The taste is surprisingly not as tart or funky as the nose let on. Moderate fruity acidity, wheat husks, biscuity and caramel malt, well balanced but missing the knockout punch I thought would be here. The fruit character seems more pitty and aspirin like on the tannic oak finish. Some brett and cheesy tones are hidden but hint of their presence. The mouth feel is quite lively and moderately refreshing but does seem to medicinal and tannic at this moment. Perhaps time will smooth this out and also allow for new characteristics to come into play. For now it is a good but not earth shattering brew. If I could take the appearance and aroma from this brew and the taste and palate from the Kuhnhenn Olde Bruine before it then I would have a world-class masterpiece!

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2010
Bottle thanks to DuffManSW. Ruby pour with a loose off-white head. Oaky vinous aroma with moderate caramel and ripe fruit. The flavor is cherries, faint citrus, a nice moderate tartness and apple cider on the finish. Very nicely balanced flavor. Dry medium body with lots of champagne like carbonation.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2010
awesome stuff. thanks to muertosporter for this gem. ruddy brown body with small off-white head. aroma of cherry, raspberry, oak and sugar. flavor is larger in oak than expected, but is similar to the aroma due to the presence of tart berries. musty and quite puckering (like a gueze in this sense). would love another bottle

Bottle. Cap basically blew off when I opened it, but no gush. Copper brown pour with some beige head. Aroma is lightly tart cherries, some sugar and a little funk. Flavor is the same, a pretty good sour cherry beer, but nothing that sets it apart from anything else I have had.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2010
[Bottle] Pours a murky deep ruby brown with a large and quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma initially is a bit chemical and harsh, but the volatiles really dissipate quickly, what’s left is rotting apple skins, lactic tartness, pear, dead leaves, black tea, but still a little bit of paint smell lingering. Flavor is lightly tart with yogurty lactic character, light oak tannin, and is a touch musty. There’s a touch of caramelly malt on the mid-palate, with some more leaves on the finish. I was really disappointed initially, but fortunately it aired out and warmed up really nicely.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2010
Bottle. Reddish brown with a thin white head. Nose and flavour of tart cherry, citrus, wood and some funky character. Pleasant mouthfeel with the sourness lingering for some time. A nice interpretation.

Sampled from the bottle at the 2010 March Metro Detroit tasting. Poured a cloudy light brown with a slight red hue and a small off-white head. Aroma was very tart and sour with an undertone of sweet fruit. Flavor was very tart with notes of cherry and raspberry.

Thanks to tpd975 for the share. Pours orange-brown with an off-white head. Nose is tart cherry, vinegar, yeast, slight malt, and slight funk. Flavor is similar with vinegar and tart cherry dominating and slight malt in the background. Interesting take on the style.
