375ml corked bottle shared by Madvike. Hazy/murky orange-red. Big off-white head, lasts. Mineral cherry pit aroma. Delicate malt background, pleasant cherry flavor, light sour edge very well incorporated. Really natural taste, quite delicious and clean. Tasty, well executed, a medium bodied Kriek that avoids being cloying. ukoolaid (580) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 19, 2013

Sampled at the mekong beers gone wild tasting. Pretty much what you would expect. Tart aroma and flavor and just a pleasant blend of cherry. Not fake. Not merichino. Just wonderfully balanced. RoyalFlushing (326) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2012
On tap @ Stags Head. Poured a light amber with a medium fluffy white head and excellent lacing. Aroma includes grass, slight Brett funk, oak, and sour cherries. Taste begins with earthiness and funk of yeast followed by well-balanced tart and sweet cherry flavors and a hint of vanilla. Wonderful fizzy carbonation produces a great mouthfeel and flavors linger on the palate long after each sip. Tame, very drinkable sour. Marheb (5750) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 15, 2013
Très pale, bonne effervescence, cerises attaqués par une sauvagerie évidente. En bouche l’acidité est féroce et la complexité en souffre mais une belle bête néanmoins. CanIHave4Beers (4184) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle via some Cates @ DSM LOL 1st edition 06/13/13merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Pours a bright orang with a small wispy lil head.
The aroma is tart cherry, generally pretty fruity with some orange rind and some barnyardy funk. The beer has sort of a woody character, even thought it seems as though it was not aged in woooooooood.
The flavor is nicely sour, very tart, and full of tart cherry flavor. It’s earthy, never crosses over into vinegary sourness and has some nice almost musty character to it.
A: Light Ruby Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head Ring, Minimal Lacing

T: Tart Cherries, Red Plum
M: Mediocre Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Sour
Overall, a nice sour cherry ale with a good subtle barrel presence.
