I got a single 750mL bottle of this from Woodman’s in Janesville in November 2012.
This pours a reddish brown color with a carbonated head that reminds me more of a cola than a beer. The scent is rich with yeasts and fermented cherries. Initially the taste of yeasty fruit hints you taste buds with a complex blend of ingredients. As the taste develops, it grows into this sweet tart taste that lingers in you mouth well past the swallow. Interesting certainly high end in taste but I was expecting something a little more in the realm of New Glarus Belgian red since this is almost twice as much in cost.
750ml bottle, 2017 vintage. Tart cherry aroma with notes of Brett, lacto, vinous red wine and oak. Pours dark toffee brown with a thin white head that has little retention or lacing. Starts with vinous red wine, Brett and lacto flavors. Finishes dry with tart cherry and oak flavors with the red wine-like tannins lingering on the palate after each sip. Very nice sour.

Smells of tart cherries, oak, Brett.
Tastes of tart cherries, Brett and oak in that order. Finishes dry and funky.

Tart funky aroma similar to many sours. Very dark red with no head. Sour complex taste with an everlasting aftertaste. Effervescent palate with just enough depth.

En aroma recuerda vagamente a la cereza y mucho al acético, como goma. En boca es más afrutada, más cereza, acidez redonda, pero sensación sucia y final seco. jsporrer (1144) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2017
Pours a light iced tea brown with almost no head. Nice tart sour cherry aroma. Crisp, clean, tart fruity taste. Very enjoyable.
