2014-08-30. Lightly hazy pink body with a small frothy white head. Aroma is pleasantly fruity, sweet cherry, very mild raspberry. Light funk. 7+ Flavour is pleasantly tart and sour, ad increasingly sour as you go. Mild cherry and raspberry flavours throughout. 7++ Spritzy average bodied palate, effervescent carbonation. 3+ Lovely. A bit more depth to the fruit would be nice but not required.

750 ml bottle shared with the group (111/119). Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma is tart fruits favoring raspberries and cherry, acidic, lactic, woody with some light floral notes. The flavor has ample tart berries and cherry with quite a bit of wood as well. Some lactic notes, but not as sour as I’d expected. This was very easy to drink and a real treat.

Thanks to Michael for this bottle. Pours a gloomy burnt orange color, like a dark tequila sunrise (sunset?). Sublime aroma, perfectly lactic and milky with sweet cherries and a nice raspberry tartness. Flavor follows in kind, bursting with soft fruit, about 60/40 cherry to raspberry. Creamy lactic mouthfeel, pillowy on the palate, sourness is modest but appreciable. Basically the beer version of a nice lean Greek yogurt with perfectly ripe fruit on top. Fantastic beer.

pour is mostly transparent amber with a white head. Nose is nice, barrel and vanilla, strong berry, dusty Brett and a hint of leather. Taste is less barrel, more raspberry and cherry, light dusty note. Lighter body with a moderate carbonation, slightly sour dry finish.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Pours a light orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of raspberries, peaches and cherries, as well as some tart notes. The flavor is similar. I get some tart raspberry character as well as some biscuit malt, lemons and white pepper. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice sour.

Bottle shared by Collin. Really tart and malty nutty with lots of tart cherry and sweet raspberry elements. A bit muddled and fizzy but overall very solid and enjoyable.
