DuffMan (10772) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 18, 2017
Bottle, beer advent calendar. Slightly pinkish golden with a rapidly receding white head. Nose is sweaty and sulfuric, a bit off-putting. Flavourwise, there is perhaps cherry fruit here, but it is merely hinted at. There is fairly bracing sourness, all lemon and unripe berry territory though, watery body. Disappointing.

Oakes (19426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2016
Bright. Reddish-amber. Not much head. The aroma has cherry, and some underlying woody notes that don’t make a lot of sense to me. Quite tart, with a light cherry taste. Not a berliner type of tartness at all, but just kettle sour. That, in turn, results in a fairly simplistic flavour profile. Inoffensive if you can handle enamel-stripping sours, but that’s about all I can really give it.

cmacklin (1377) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2016
341ml bottle. (4.0% ABV) Pours a clear red-orange with a medium, fizzy, short lived, off-white head that fully dissipates. Aroma of sour cherries, wheat malt and funky yeast. Flavour of sour cherries, wheat malt, wine and yeast with a dry finish. Light body with a watery texture and average carbonation. Refreshing and sessionable but pretty average.

tmalaher (309) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 4, 2016
From the 2016 parallel 49 seasons greetings beervent calendar. Nice sour fruity flavor. Effervescent. Perfect sipping beer

beerplace (2330) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2016
On tap at damn St. Augustine’s during P49/CC event. Pours a clear rose-ish golden witha wbite head. Aroma is sour with some cherry notes. Taste is pretty the same. Refreshing, not bad.

patricks110 (2794) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 6, 2016
A very average sour - bland lemon and cherry. Zesty, tart, mild sweetness. Easy going but very bland and mild.

rubyroo (146) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 2, 2016
Aroma of sour cherry blasters, grain, lacto. Appearance is a gorgeous rose pink with very little head retention or lacing. Taste is tart lemon, sour cherries, lactic acid. Palate is thin bodied with a mouth puckering tartness. Overall- Not too bad, pretty refreshing and decent cherry/lemon taste but the ’beer’ quality is lacking.

reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 24, 2016
341ml bottle pours a pinkish golden color with a finger of white head that settles quickly leaving no lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by cherry with some funky notes. Taste is a cherry tartness with a malty sweetness and funky yeast finish. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this brew is overly dominated by the fruit and loses it beer qualities.

GothGargoyle (2588) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Cloudy pink with a small pale head. Aroma is wet socks, burnt wire insulation, rotten cherries. Thin bodied, tart on the palate, unpleasant taste and horrible aftertaste. Flavours are burnt plastic, rotten cherries, death and decay. If I was a walking dead zombie, this is the beer I'd drink.

sulawang (1210) - - JUN 24, 2014
Visual: Pours a beautiful orange-ruby red, barely any head, just a few tight streams. Nose: Almost plasticky, kind of like persimmon but not, quite odd and non-typical. (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: incoming sour/tartness Mid-palate: very sour, medium tart, (lvl-3)-fruity sweetness, (MAIN) wheat malts, off-putting plastic (which are the cherries) Finish: mild palate roughness, light fizzy tart fruity finish. Summary: Almost undrinkable, with an okay attack but awful strange plastic flavour in the mid to finish. Actually halfway through it’s a waste of calories to burn later.
