Poured from a bomber into a The Bruery snifter a dark burgundy brown color cloudy with a ton of sediment & little head.
Aroma is acid cherries with a favor that is shocking cherry pie with a touch of oak. Wow wow this is a great sour brew!
Overall an incredible sour and I might add I am not a huge sour fan. o_O. TerriOcean (3) - - APR 7, 2014 does not count
The perfect amount of tart! The cherries come through but are not over-powering. I give it a 10 on panty scale. shadbow (84) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 7, 2014
Tart and sour w a great cherry flavor that doesn’t overpower or fall short. Delicious! Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle shared by Dave. Aroma is amazing with cherry pie fillling, caramel, black cherry, iron, lemon zest, and oak. Pours murky dark red/brown with very little carbonation and slight film. Taste is super tart and very intense. Sour cherry, black cherry, caramel, lemon zest, and sour oak. Just a perfect oud tart with cherries. This is Red Poppy on steroids. This may be the best sour I’ve had. Hard to say. cernjoh (183) - Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Pours a cloudy dark burgundy color with a small tan head that dissipates rapidly. Nose is like a cherry sweet tart. Taste is puckery for sure but a great sour with cherries. Good carbonation. A favorite sour of mine.

Served in a Teku from bottle.
Aroma – complex, inviting scents reminiscent of oak barrels. I cannot smell a lot of cherries in the aroma, but that may just be me.
Appearance – light brown appearance w/ fleeting head retention. Typical Flemish Red appearance.
Taste – marvelous Flemish Red in many respects--sour cherries linger in the back of throat w/ magnificent barrel finish, which expands across entire taste spectrum, leaving you salivating for more. Tongue is loving this one.
Palate – impressive how this brew makes you squint after each sip it. It is that sour. If you breathe out as you drink the beer, you can significantly realize the cherry profile, which makes this Flemish Red a top-tier contender in this category.
Overall – an impressive Flemish Red that I would buy again. It is not the best Flemish Red I have encountered, but it is definitely a contender and not a brew you should sleep on. Extremely satisfied. Luckylucy667 (41) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Dark red real cloudy awesome cherry nose. Some oak in flavor obviously cherries finished super dry and delicious. JaBier (8132) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Bottle shared by a friend for my birthday. Dark red pour with a medium beige head. Nose consists of sour cherry, funk, malt and lacto sourness. Sweet cherry flavor with maltiness and big sourness before a sour cherry finish. Pretty tasty! bulldogops (2726) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2017
Rating #2547 - 2016.05.05 - Draught at Bruery event at Bainbridge St Barrel House. Pours a deep reddish brown with a bubbly head that disapparates rather quickly. Aroma is wild cherries, oak, vanilla aromatics - rich, fruity texture. Palate is well balanced - lots of tart cherry, sweetness and complexity - lovely sour. merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 9, 2013
