Pour from Scott at his tasting, thanks a ton! Pour was clear reddish with slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of sour cherry and raspberry, some sweet pie cherry but not overwhelming, some nice funky and tart notes with hints of other white fruit in there as well. Taste was a mix of nice tart cherry with hints of sweet raspberry and jammy cherry as well, goes into some slight funk and vinous notes, tart lemon in there as well finishes it dry and fairly lactic. Nicely done brew.

Bottle. I discovered this in my cellar recently. I had it squirreled away and had used a metallic pen to write "2011" on it. The label has the woman reclining on the sofa whilst wearing a red bra.
Colour...slightly pinkish but generally a light amber with a thin head. Nose...very fruity and zesty with sweet spices. Palate...fruity, zippy, zesty, tippy top, rollin’ along, singin’ a song and generally fabulous with loads of cherries. The mid palate is dry and spicy and the finish is long and quite gleeky.

On tap at OIBF’16. Booklet said it was 4Play/Rose Blend, but that seems near impossible reading that description (55 bottles). Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma is very funky, tart, lemons, fruity, almost Cantillon-like, light floral. Flavour is floral, fruity, funky, sour, lemons. Light bodied. Good.

On tap @ Upright. Pours clear pale golden orange with thin white head. Aroma is tart cherries, light leathery red wine barrel notes. Taste is super crisp tartness up front, lacking in notable sour pucker though. Fresh cherries sit in the background. Excellent beer.

Draft 12 oz pour at Upright. Drinking in the same room where all the magic happens. Clear golden pour with no head. Heavy cherry pie like aroma. Tart cherry up front, with some softer peach and apricot. Very similar to an exceptional cherry lambic. Very nicely done.

5 oz sample at the brewery in Portland, Oregon. The pour is a hazed golden yellow with minimal white head. The aroma is bright cherry sour, citrus tartness and some wheat grain in back. The taste is a great melding of the sour cherry and the tart acidic citrus, along with some wood and funk Brett that carries the finish. The palate is light bodied with fine active carbonation and the dry Brett funky tart finish. Fun beer.
