5 Kay, 7.5 Kay, 10 Kay Tasting. Thanks to Paul. Very hazy brown - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and crisp. Tart generic fruits, trace of sherbet. Balsamic and mild lemon acid which gets stronger and starts to burn after the light finish. Tasty but I couldn’t drink much of it.
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Paul. Pours unclear red-brown with a foamy, off-white head. Tart cherries on the nose with accents of leather, dirt, dried grass. Light sweet flavor with assertive acidity, damn dry cherry, tannins, old wood, pits, earth. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sharp sour finish with lemony acidity, dry cherries, drying wood. Cleansing. Nice beer, but certainly punchy.

12.7 oz. bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a dark cherry red / dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out cherries, loads of sour fruits, acidity, vinegar and oak. Flavour brings out a healthy mix of bourbon barrels and tart fruits, with secondary notes of cherries, wood, and vinegar. Not as much acidity as in the Raspberry version thankfully. The bourbon barrels add a lot to this and cut down the intense acidic sourness. Great stuff. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle @ home. Thanks, Jake. Deep amber colored pour with a short lived off-white head. Smells like a mix of red wine vinegar, cherry juice, and lemons. A lot like Cuvee de Tomme or Oude Tart with Cherries. Slight cola sweetness and plenty of cherry pie. The flavor intensely sour and tannic. Tons of fruit skin and oak. Very sour, particularly on the finish. Some cherry pie sweetenss. Quite acidic. Ratman197 (14852) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2013
