(Backlog) Bottle, assuming it was batch 5+. Ruby pour with white head. Vinous and cherry aromas. Light cherry, wine and oak flavors are light and almost nonexistent, not very drinkable and boring. ESBob (379) - Indiana, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bomber. Poured a ruddy brownish red with only slightest head noted. Aroma is a very light mixture of cherries and grapes. Tastes is a sweet/soured blend of fruits. Some belgian yeast funk in the aftertaste. Tastes became a bit more complex as this one warms up. hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2014
22oz bottle. Poured a reddish tinged color with a small to no head. Cherries, wood, with some yeast. Cherry juice. Release 27 / Alcohol 11%. fakebeersnob (325) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours a darker red with no real head or lacing. Tastes like a watery wine and cherries. Maybe hints of beer. I like beer of different varieties and flavors, but I do want it to taste like a beer. This does not to me. I really am not a fan.
It is drinkable. That is it.

Reddish pink color, small head, minimal lace/retention. Aroma is sweet cherry with notes of wheat, grape, and vanilla. Medium bodied, alcohol hidden well, somewhat sweet but not overly so. Concealer (1265) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Tap at hops and pie. Clear ruby amber with a frothy beige head that lasts on the sides. Aromas of cherries, and caramel/dark fruit. Flavor is cherry, caramel, spice and light booze. Medium to full bodied with a dry, warm end. Dogbrick (13564) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Sample at the tap room in Denver. Pours a pinkish-red color with a thin fizzy pinkish-white head that evaporates quickly to a sparse outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of vine fruits, cherries and wheat. Full-bodied with flavors of tart cherries, earthy malt and vinous oak. The finish is fruity with a red cherry and oak aftertaste. Decent overall. joshwoodward (575) - - JUN 18, 2014
Had a glass of this from a bottle at the Arbor Brewing Company sours & fruits tasting. Didn’t take formal notes. alliance100 (1160) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Draft at the Derby Station - pours a hazy dirty red . Faint cherry and grape aroma . Taste is mild tart cherry with a slight tannic finish . Not bad .
