Smell is straight cherry. Pours a lovely cloudy amber with a white head. Taste is tart with a little sweetness defiantly hints of cherry. The Brett yeast gives it a nice earthy and sour flavor like I was expecting. Leaves a sour after taste that I like.

Reddish brown color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Lots of cherry, wheat, wood, sour finish.

Bouteille de 750 mL versant un liquide d’un beau rouge St-Valentin, donnant toutefois un gros gush, avec par contre une petite carbonatation. AU nez, grosse senteur de brett et des cerises qui sont bien présentes. Le gout goût vient équilibrer le tout, entre les cerises et la brett, et la bière au final se boit très bien, un peu à ma surprise. La seule chose que je reprocherais, c’est peut-être un petit manque de complexité, alors que les saveurs sont assez simples entre levures et cerises. On dénote également un peu d’effervescence. Bonne buvabilité. Peu complexe. Agréable à boire.

Can shared at ratebeers best. Pours red pink in color. Aroma is cherry and slight tart. Taste is cherry with a light tart funk. I enjoyed it

Merci à Mathieu pour le partage de cette bouteille de 750ml. Robe rouge très opaque qui ressemble également à un sirop. Ça ne semble pas léger, mais alors pas du tout. Bien sirupeuse et huileuse, je m’attends à un liquide qu’on a aromatisé pour le rendre puissamment fruité. Mes appréhensions s’avèrent être fondées. Je note un fond médicamenteux de cerises noires, heureusement contrebalancé par une belle petite acidité qui sauve la donne. C’est effet bien sirupeux et corpulent. Pas pour moi.

Bottle shared by Eric that foamed over upon opening, thanks for sharing! Big tart cherry juice on the nose and in the flavor with just a hint of earthy light funkiness. Its a tasty beverage but I was honestly hoping for a bit more funk of tart or something,

16 oz can to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a slightly translucent cherry with very light pink head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of loads of cherry, but to the point where it borders on medicinal syrup. Tastes like it smells, but less syrupy, with a touch of tartness woven in. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Good, not great. I don’t get much brett, other than it drying out what would likely be an otherwise syrupy beer a bit. Solid, and tastes better than it smells.

Can. Pours blood red with a thin red tinged head that lingers. Aroma of kool aid and wine. Heavy carbonation. It's tart and dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I dont see the hate for this one. Pour is deep red with pink head. Aroma is cherry, menthol, light funk, lemon, and biscuity malts. Taste is sweet and lightly tart. Tasty fruit beer with a lighter wild side.

can thanks to Jared, later batch. Great cherry flavors, like a home madfe cherry pie. Tart finish. The body tastes like a very light oud bruin. Great stuff, a heavy cherry handed rodenbach.

The beer pours red with a fizzy, light pink head. The bubbles dissipate quickly. The aroma is sweet and sour cherries with some cough medicine flavor to it. A little bit of dust, but I have to look for it. Light honey sweetness in the background. Taste follows the aroma with a bit less fruit and more dry dustiness. It’s not really funky. Medicinal finish. Medium body. Some tang at the end. Not great.
