Reddish brown pour. Small head. Tart cherries, nice light woody notes and some light caramel is detected faintly. Flavor is sour, cherries, wood, vinegar, light cheesy notes. Damn good! nuplastikk (6512) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Cask at GTMW. Not much carbonation but certainly an awesome beer. Murky cherry brown red. Not much head. A nice sourness, lots of cherry. Smooth and subtle, very nice. Great cherry aroma. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2015

>> Murky red orange color with thicker head and, fantastic lace especially for style. Spiced cinnamon baked apple pie nose with hints of vanilla as it warms up. Taste begins with very soft carbonation, leather, low to no acid, Brett only it seems, low cranberry, low cherry. It hits the mouthfeel and flavors of Flemish red but has almost no acid. It works, though, being infinitely drinkable like a cross between dark saison and Flemish red. Super soft body - this one evaporated from the glass.
(On tap at GTMW ’09) This one was the highlight of the fest for me. Pours a light murky red with a little white head that dissipates to nothing after some time. The aroma is huge on this, with great scents of macerated cherries, wet wood, earth, funk, leather, and wet paint. The taste also begins with sweet crushed cherry, cherry pits and skins, that quickly transitions to a bone dry barrel character on the finish. A bit vinous as well, tart, and a little salty with a funk kick at the end. The mouthfeel was medium. In sum, a great beer that really showcased the added cherry, and was quite refreshing for a hot summer day.
