2017-05-13. Crisp dark red body, headless. 3+ Aroma of earthy cherry, whispers of wood. Flavour is quite acetic up front with a not quite vinegary sourness, moderate cherry throughout. 7++ Crisp average bodied palate, soft to low carbonation. Nice but of the two i would come back to the Tahoma Kriek more. 7/4/7-8/3/16-17 Bottle shared by wilco.

Thanks to Matt for this brew! C’est souvent ce qui arrive avec les bières sauvages trop fortes en alcool: elles développent des arômes de Band Aid, de médicament et de plastique. Ici ces défauts ne sont pas violents car la bière demeure bien faite, mais elle n’y échappe pas totalement non plus. Beaucoup de funk et de bactéries lactiques, mes joues salivent sans retenue et la cerise ne ment pas. Cependant un vernis au profil médicamenteux ne ment malheureusement pas lui non plus. C’est puissant et ça joue dans la tête. Chaude et bien effervescente. Pas trop souvent disons. GlasgowTAD (1845) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 1, 2017

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured cloudy dark ruby color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy yeast and dark fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour fruit flavor with a medium to heavy sour finish of moderate to long duration. This beer surpassed my expectations.

Had three different vintages of this (thanks Beershine), one of which was a travesty of butyric shit. But the other two weren’t bad, so I’ll ignore the bad one. Reddish brown, earthy, spicy cherry, nice mellow spicy cherry sour note. Good brew. alexsdad06 (10482) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2016
375 ml bottle shared with Tmoney99. Pours a dark reddish copper color with a small pinkish head. The aroma and flavor have tart black cherry character, sweet cherry, acidic, mineral notes, some caramel sweetness, mild funk, pretty good, fades just a touch to the finish. fiulijn (20604) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2016
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouverdrpimento (3672) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 31, 2016
Cloudy red color. Aggressively sour, but supported by a good body strength, fruity (not so much cherry, rather it feels like generic berries), a bit woody.
Appearance is boring - drab brown with pink tones, no head or lace. Aroma is delightful with perfume, fruit, vinegar, malt. Flavor’s not as interesting as aroma, but similar and good. Body is good. Fairly easy drinking with enough fruitiness to offset the sour. beerplace (1731) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2016 27-Jul-2016. 375ml bottle. Vintage 2014, bottled 2015. Tasting with Jamey. Pours a brown reddish with a white head. Aroma is funky with cherry notes. Taste is sour, very acidic, with cherry notes. Not bad, but too acidic and hence very overpriced. Meh.
18-Oct-2016. On tap at St. Augustine with Ash during Double Mountain tap takeover (thx, Alex, lol).
Vintage 2015. Juicy, cherry, tart, quite sour, no reaidual sweetness. Still not very good.
Vintage 2014. More sweet in aroma. Less sourness, less cherries, more woody.
Vintage 2013. Funky, old cherries, woody, very dry.
