Really happy to get this bottle. Iíve been wanting to try it for a long time now. Pours a darker yellow/orange color. I can smell the cherry and the rye. The beer smells funkier than it actually tastes. Kind of sweet and malty but just not as sour as I would like. Still fantastic.

Sampled on draft at the Provisions store. It pours muddy orange with an off white head. The aroma is acidic with peaches, bread and caramel. The flavor is sour with notes of lemon, apricot and hints of white vinegar, spice and mild wood. It has a nice bretty finish. Very tart and mouthwatering. Big mouthfeel. Pretty nice sour. The rye added a nice depth to the flavor. A bit on the acetic side for me though.

750 ml bottle from the Reserve Society membership I split with bsuedekum. Pours a hazy orange-amber with a small off-white head. Looks like an unfiltered cider. Muddled fruity aroma; apples, lemon, berries, oak, sweet malts, vanilla, and peppery spices. The flavor sticks along the same lines, with a lot of tart fruits, sweet caramel and vanilla notes, spices, and a bit of lactic acid. Medium-bodied, tart and muddled, with moderate carbonation. Good but didnít stand up to the Oui Oui and Filmishmish we opened.
