12 oz can poured into a tulip. Dark slightly hazy amber red with thin beige head. Aromas of light cherries, a little funk. Tastes of light cherries, some oak, a little herbal. Light body with a dry finish. Lightly tart. Expected a bit more.

I was going to make a cheap crack about vaping and douchebaggery, but I'm using an electronic platform to rate beer so that may not be wise. Glass houses and such. Anyway, Vape Tricks pours bright red. Some sediment in the glass. In defense of my clumsy pour, it's a little trickier to avoid sediment when pouring from a can. That's my lame excuse, at least. Fruit and cracker aromas. This tasted a tad conservative for a Prairie brew. I was expecting lots more funk and tart cherry. Balance is nice, but the funkiness, sweetness, and tartness are all pretty mild. Still, it's a very easy drinker at 5%.

Modest sour and cherry aroma/taste. Pretty black cherry color. $3.19 for 12 ounce can is premium compared to other sours in this area.

Sampled on draft at Hugo's this beer poured a reddish color with a medium sized foamy pinkish head. The aroma was sour with tart berries. The flavor was sourish with notes of cracker and tart berries. Long berry finish. Medium body. Ok.

12 oz. can. Pours a cloudy, reddish-orange color, with a big, pink, bubbly head. The aroma is orange juice, saltine crackers, pie cherries, and vanilla. Not too sweet, with a mellow tart flavor. Light to medium body, with an acidic, hard mouthfeel. Fun, fruity, and tasty. Nothing too special, but well made.

12floz can, no date, 5.9% ABV, Krebs Brewing Co brewed and canned, $3 paid as a single, poured into a tulip glass. Burgundy in color with a voluminous pinkish head. Smell is nothing special, dry hay and no fruit notes. The palate is a little better, its dry and tingles. Sour and salt are the two overarching tasting traits, which more specifically I'd say it's like musty cardboard with sour (unsweetened) cherry ever present. This beer comes with biases as this is a cheesy named release from a regarded brewer/label.So with that in mind, I though this has to be something good or else it will not be very good. It may not be as bad as my review, but it is very meh.

12 ounce can into tulip glass; no can dating, but is a recent release. Pours very murky ruby red/brown/purple color with a 1 finger fairly dense light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Minimal spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Good Appearance. Aromas of big tart/sour cherries, fruit skin/pits, raspberry, plum, apricot, peach, pear, green apple, red grape, red wine, almond, wheat, cracker, and toasted bread; with light notes of hay, grass, musty/lacto funk, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/acidic yeast, cherries, and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart/sour cherries, fruit skin/pits, raspberry, plum, apricot, peach, pear, green apple, red grape, red wine, almond, wheat, cracker, and toasted bread; with light notes of hay, grass, musty/lacto funk, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness; light yeast spiciness and fruit tang on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/sour cherries, fruit skin/pits, raspberry, plum, apricot, peach, pear, green apple, red grape, red wine, almond, wheat, cracker, toasted bread, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, cherries, and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/tartness balance, and zero puckering flavors after the finish. Lightly drying from tangy/tartness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, fairly crisp/acidic, and lightly tangy/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.9%. Overall this is a very nice fruited kettle sour ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, cherries, and bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the modestly lactic/tangy finish. Was hoping for some Brett funk, but there is just Lacto. Could use some more acidity, but the balance between bready sweet malts and tartness is adequate. Tons of authentic cherry flavors, with great balance all around. A very enjoyable offering.

This beer reminds of cough syrup with the cherry and herbs flavor combination as well as the sirupy texture. It's not very complex despite the light brettanomyces presence. Prairie can do better.

Canette (355 ml) à la maison. Apparence trouble, couleur rouge sirop pour la toux avec une petit tête rosée qui disparaît rapidement. Au nez, le sirop pour la toux n'est jamais bien loin avec le petit côté médicinal qui se dégage de la combinaison de notes de cerises et d'herbes. Il y a aussi une légère présence de brettanomyces, mais très peu de complexité. Au goût, on reste dans les mêmes registres avec une acidité modérée. Corps moyen à léger. Carbonatation faible. Texture un peu sirupeuse. Finale sur les cerises avec des notes médicinales. C'est simplet et ça rappelle le sirop pour la toux dans plusieurs aspects. Prairie peut faire mieux.
