3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Small Batch. Pours a dark red with pinkish hue. Aroma of cherry skins, slight nail polish, horseblanket. Flavor has plenty of cherry juice and skins with significant tartness. Some barnyard is there, but it’s masked by sour candy. Quite prickly on the tongue and increasingly sharp and sour. Tongue fatigue comes into play after a few ounces as a result. Very enjoyable but only in limited quantities.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very deep pink... crossing into reddish with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is cherry & cherry skin with some barnyard funkiness & some acidic brightness... cool.
The flavor is very tart with loads of cherry, it’s very dry with a touch too high of acidity giving it a little bit more sourness then your standard Oude Kriek. Overall though it’s really got a nice cherry character and is very bright all around. Very enjoyable.
I liked it a whole lot, and it was better than I had expected it to be, it reminds me of Supplication from years ago.. but then again.. that was years ago.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Initial pours a clear reddish pink blush but get a bit hazy towards the end of the bottle as the yeast sediment mixes in a bit. Fizzy light pink head quickly vaporizes. Pleasant aroma of cherries along with a bit of lambrusco vinegar. The flavor is lovely with a nice combination of cherries with some tartness, a little bit of funk, and some fruit sweetness. Bright and lively on the palate. Light-medium bodied. Very enjoyable!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Bottled 04/24/13. Pours a medium, effervescent, well retained, pink head, with no lacing, over a hazy, reddish (SRM 16) bubbling body......nose is light cherry, barnyard funk, lactic plus hints of acetic acids.....taste is sour lactic/acetic acid, barnyard funk, light cherry, hints of sweet sour, finishing with a lingering acid.....mouth feel light of medium, slightly astringent, carbonation high. This meets the style quite well, but is on the limit of how much sour acid I can enjoy. BJCP 7/3/13/4/7
