Lemke10 (979) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 12, 2012
I got a single 750mL bottle of this from Woodmans 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.

Pours a light iced tea brown with almost no head. Nice tart sour cherry aroma. Crisp, clean, tart fruity taste. Very enjoyable.

kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Looks almost black in color, but could be dark plum. Beige head is large. Aroma is complex oak, dark fruit, belgian yeast, souring brett, etc. Fizzy palate with the dominate flavor being cherry, cinammon, and oak. Strong yeast note in the finish imparts a dense almond character. Very complicated.

On tap at the Cleveland Pub and Grill in New Berlin for the Payco Christmas Party! Reddish brown pour with an off-red head, leaving little lace. Big yeasty cherry presence, with sweet malts. Tasty due to the solid fruit presence. The yeast presence is certainly a player here. 13.7

NikkTwist (3051) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2016 Draft at Bainbridge. Hazy deep copper chestnut pour with a slim foamy ring. Delicious sour brown kriek. Black cherries. Currants. Blackberries. Blood oranges. Molasses. Dates. Apple skins. Oak barrel tannins. Well done.

Zymurgeist2 (2152) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 10, 2016
Darught at Harrys Hofbrau. Tart cherries and solid cracker malt. Moderately hazy light brownish-amber with pink head that collars around the glass. Taste is tart cherries and very nice throughout the main palate. The very back has a bit of a harshness about it and almost an alcohol burn that I could not figure out.

jc1762 (1239) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 31, 2016
Tap into a snifter showing no head and moderately filtered dark red/brown rust. The nose shows tart cherries with a cherry cough syrup-like profile. The palate is highly carbonated and medium bodied. Oak and vanilla forward with light cherries in the background. Moderately tart and a resurgence of vanilla on the finish. Acetic edge found throughout in combination with dry and slightly spicy tannins. Overall, not bad but reminds me a lot of the Rodenbacher Vintage ale but with tannins and slightly less oak.

tightslice (1187) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 21, 2016
On tap at Harrys Hofbrau in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is cherry, oak, VERY FUNKY. Taste is tart cherries, vinegar burn, some hefty funk. Chewable funk and oak, tannins and fruit skins, even some nuttiness on the finish. Very much in the Flanders / Brown / Red / Oud Bruin style of sours with loads of funky horse hooves (especially as it warms). Not for the faint of heart.
