At dark suds. Nice red color, heavy cherry nose. Big cherry up front, nothing but acetic acid in the finish. Vinegar kills this for me. WillRunForBeer (2702) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2014

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Ed. 2008 bottle, I think. Dingy, muddled copper with a fizzly, beige head. Aroma of sour cherry, cherry skins, light vinegar, some acetic notes, lactobacillus just outside the realm of "yogurt-y", just a little touch of musty wood & hay in the finish. Taste has a larger damp oak presence up front; light vanilla, likely from the barrel, also a mild cinnamon draw, likely from the fruit. Sour & dry cherry skins with vinegar & lactic acid whetting the edges. Sourness grows over time & leads to a dry oak finish. Very nice sour kriek!
