If you like tart. Welcome. Orange hue on a no head but not flat Kriek. Huge wonderful sour cherry flavor. If I had a sugar cube it'd be a sour patch kid.

Poured from a bomber into a The Bruery snifter a orange red with minimal head.
Aroma is tart cherry shizzzzz.
A sour blonde with more flavor that one would ever expect. Bitter dry finish makes this crazy!. Well done.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy pinkish/golden with an off-white head. Aroma of sourness, cherries, pale malts, and light oak. Flavor the same with a nice blend of the sourness and cherries and light oak. Average texture. A good sour.

My Bottom Line:
Buttery cherries evolve into a sour splash, as pediococcus and wine vinegar aspects create somewhat puzzling complexity.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A circle of foam floats atop the cloudy red.
-The acidic finish is harsh but it should please those looking for intensity on that front.
-Carbonation is not as intense as I had imagined.
-Drinkability is low for this type of beer. This is a sipper, no doubt.

Is this basically Rueuze with cherries? It’s very good whatever it is. Powerful sour cherry taste, especially after it warms a bit. This is really nice, sour fans should grab it if they see it.

pours hazy almost cloudy-dirty peach-pink without a head. cherries, lots of cheesy lactos, acetic, oranges, cinnamon, perfume, quite spicy in fact. moderate carbonation, light body, puckering and spicy finish. low funk and drinkability. not only far from a kriek, but clearly unbalanced and out of control.

Hazy brown with a cream head. Nose is sour, tart, wood, and funky. Easy palate, heavy tart finish, nail polish, sour, acidic, and a great finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (750 ml). From Tom, thanks! Clear amber/salmon with a small ring of off-white foam. Aroma is mostly of cherries along with acetic notes and light spices (cinnamon), Taste is incredibly acetic with a ton of sour cherries and not much else. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry finish. Mouth puckering. This is probably the most acetic beer I have drank so far. Contrary to the description of the beer, this one is absolutely not well balanced. Zero drinkability. The cherries are tasty though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear orange/light salmond with a pink hue. Almost no head. Aroma is of fruits, cherries. Taste is of fruits, acid, berries. Palate: Light-medium body. Overall: Way too acid/sour. Not enjoyable: too harsh. Still not a total fail, but I would not mind never drinking this one again.
