Unlableled can thanks to Matt. Pours a cloudy orange brown with off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is cherry skin and hairspray. Medium mouthfeel with overpowering cherry, medicine, and tart finish. Odd

kermis (14478) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2014
Can shared thanks to JulienHuxley. Pours very hazy full dark red with a thin pink head. Aroma of bathroom, soapy, cherry skin. Flavour is moderate sweet and light acidic. Dry palate with a tart hairspray finish. Light medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2007
(Draught) Pours a clear amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of black cherry, wood, medinical, and light citric notes. Flavor of oak, black cherries, cough syrup, dirty sock, and light microflora sourness.

j12601 (13027) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2011
On tap at the Blind Tiger. Pours a clear ruby red with not much of a head, but a thin white head appears with agitation. Toast and pomegranate on the nose. Smells a bit like grenadine syrup. Sweet, cloying and weird. Toast, light sourness. Dry acid and vinyl flavors. Long toast and yeast on the finish.

Sammy (12600) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2005
Only 7 barrels-I would have done a growler. Peach colour with active little white head, lace in glass. Yeasty aroma. Smooth lambiclike, well balanced, long finish. Creaminess from wheat, fruit tartness from cherries.

deyholla (12021) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear ruby red with a thin white head that dissipated completely. Aroma was full of fresh cherries that were mainly sweet but there was a bit of a tart bite. Flavor was similar with juicy sweet cherries throughout with a bit of tartness that grew. Didn’t pick up much brett at all.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2007 The Lure:
Sweet fruitiness of cherries and orange zest sitting surrounded by decorative lacing. Not enough signs of the interior wilderness, either there isn’t enough brett, or it hasn’t had time to develop yet.

The Festivities:
Hushed wilderness touches the cherries, peaches, and curaçao(?). Wheat malt tartness matches that of the yeast’s, but it still doesn’t reach the intensity levels I would have desired. Low carbonation imparts a classy feel, but all in all it is much sweeter than what I would have expected in a bretty ale. This still remains a beautiful creation, don’t get me wrong.

Encouragement will nurse future leaps.

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.
