Very dark brown pour, minimal head. Fantastic aroma of cherries and concord grapes, with vinegar notes. Extremely flavorful -- cherry and vinegar, red wine. Dayum.

The_Osprey (9690) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2017
September 2017 - Keg at Beavertown Extravaganza. As 'Crooked Stave Mama Bear's Cherry Pie'. Dark reddy brown, foamy light brown head. Aroma is rich cherry, kriek, cherry juice. Body is smooth with soft to tingly carbonation. Taste is more cherry juice, funky, rich and juicy, little plastic. Rich and rounded and assertive but not too acidic. Very good. (8-4-8-4-17=4.1)

27/VIII/17 - on tap @ BXL Beer Fest - BB: n/a (2017-1438) Thanks to the (Belgian) RB crew for sharing today's beers!

Clear dark red brown beer, creamy beige head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very spicy, cinnamon, caramelised pecan nuts, sweetish with a vinegar touch, pretty nice! MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very acidic, vinegar, lots and lots of tannins, cinnamon. Aftertaste: spicy, vinegar, cherries, some tannins, very bitter, dry finish, too harsh of an acidity going on here. Seriously, are we brewing beer or industrial acid?

Shared at Corbet’s house on September 11. 375 mL bottle. The pour is a nicer ruby brown color with a thicker tan head and a lack of lace as it falls down to a thin collar. The aroma is pretty good. The light vinegary sour comes through first, but the cherry pie filling comes through next. Total canned pie filling, tart cherry additions, and a little bit more vinegar sour on the back end. The flavor is much of the same. The cherries are nicely balanced with a strong sourness to it and a light cherry skin behind it. I like the tart cherry pie filling. The mouth feel is more of a lighter medium body with a moderate carbonation and a lingeringly tart and sour cherry on the finish. Pretty good. 8 4 8 4 16

Thank you for sharing Martinus! Sampled draft @ BXLBeerFest 2017. Dark brown, tanned head. Nose is massive canned cherries, cherry pie filling, extreme but also extremely sour, vinegar,… Highly delicious but also insanely sour, real acid burn, vinegar & massive canned cherry pie filling, Body is vinegar & cherry juice. Very nice but also punishing.
