Draft at brewpub: This was kept in stainless for 3 years and served from the cask. Ruby color, light pink head and fruity aroma. This beer has aged extremely well! The Bretts are present, but not overwhelming., the sweet/cherry has mellowed nicely. This beer was awesome at this age.

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 dont 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. Its not really funky. Medicinal finish. Medium body. Some tang at the end. Not great.

Can to glass. Cool ruby red color, reddish head. Aroma is mild wheat, sour cherrie notes. Taste is light, cherry, not much Brett character. More of a fruit beer than a wild ale.

Une dgustation offerte par Didier. Merci! Un liquide rouge comme il se doit qui ne dveloppe aucune tte mousseuse. Le nez est faible en magie et fortement banal : jus de cerises et notes mdicinales. En bouche, cest fruit sans leffet des bretts et/ou du sour mash. Au palais, cest aqueux. La finale est assez courte mais sche. Pas vraiment intressant mais buvable.

Extra from cpetrone. Thanks, Chris. Gusher. Muddled brownish red. Nose of earthy cherry flesh, light rustic funk. Solid base beer with some brett driven yeast elements but mostly just carries earthy tart cherries. I dont understand the score on this one. Maybe some time in the can has done good for this over early ratings? Not terribly complex but great dry cherry expression and complaints here.

Canned, courtesy of JulienHuxely. Pours a clear pinkish, amber brown beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma has some red fruits, cherries, apples. Flavor has a lot of fruit in there as well, light tary base with even a slight sweetness in the very back. Very nice balance between fruits and sour in this one, making it very interesting to drink. Good stuff here!
