dalekliz (871) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber-red with a good-sized off-white head. Malty aroma, with wood, berries, yeast, vanilla. The cherries come through more in the taste, starts very tart, then picks up malt toastyness, with some caramel and wood. Lingering sour cherry malt notes. Nice!

750 ml bottle. Pours hazy brown with tall, long-lasting, foamy off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of barnyard yeast, cherries, bready malt and spices. Body is full and crisp. Spicy hops, funky yeast, bready malt, brown sugar, minerals and sour cherries fill the mouth. Finish is long and spicy. Enjoyable brew.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Bomber. Medium/dark brown with an average off-white head. Malty aroma. No cherry anywhere. The flavor is that of a dark Belgian Ale. I didn’t get any cherry here at all.

ladnewton (1411) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
12oz Bottle, 6th July 2014, gift from a friend. Pours hazy reddish brown with virtually no head or lacing. Rich malty and fruity aroma with cherry and plum notes. Intense cherry and nutty malts in-mouth with earthy pungency and subtle spiciness. Finish is fruity with rich cherry and citric tanginess. Pleasant zingy texture and full body. Lush.

jredmond (5295) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle at Paul’s May 2014 tasting. Pours a copper amber body with white fizzy lacing. Aroma is light cherry and lots of grain. Mouthfeel is super boozy with alcohol coming over the palate in full force; followed by notes of grain, cherry cough syrup and watered down booze. No.

Sammy (8529) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
You must really like cherry to get at this. It has a mild cherry flavour, and a lighter mouthfeel Belgium brown base. And I like cherry.

suprchunk (2160) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Dark brown pour. Some ruby highlights. Small off-white almost tan head. Not much in the way of lacing. Slight sourness in the malty aroma. Fruit. Taste is a tart sour cherry. Finishes tart and sweet.

PhillyCraft (3167) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle. God damn this thing was fucking rough. The only bottle at the tasting that I saw that had a good 70 percent left in it. Smoke and acid was my take from this bottle. Not a hint of real cherry to be found. Ill pass on this if offered in the future.

PorterPounder (5451) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - Fermentation Lounge - on tap. Dark reddish chestnut brown pour, soft off-white head. Aroma has a sour essence to it with a burnt essence to it with some sour cherries. Flavor has the same sour essence to it with a solid sour cherry essence to it, some sweet tart candy notes, some Belgian candii sugar notes. Mouthfeel has a nice spritz to it. Nice one to drink nice and slow while talking with former co-workers.
