Bottle at Bruce’s 30th, massive thanks to the main man himself! It pours hazy golden with a small off-white head. The nose is creamy, raspberry yoghurt, dark cherry, fresh sour fruit and plum skin.

Medium bodied, soft acid and a bit of tart cherry with some fuzzy raspberries. Absolutely lovely, fuzzy musk and soft acid. Gorgeous stuff. jtclockwork (16831) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle shared at tasting at my house. Pours amber brown with tan/off white head. Nose and taste of tart raspberry, funky wood, wild yeast, light cherry vinegar tartness, light caramel and aged oak. Medium body. Well balanced tartness - not overpowering. Raspberry shines through a bit more than the cherry. Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Pours slightly hazy dark amber/dirty pale brown. Not much head, but some lacing. Aroma is of sourness, cherries, fruits, acidity, sligth metal. Taste is of sourness. Not too much acetic. Fruits. Palate: Ligth-medium body. Overall: Refreshing. Fair sourness, not too cloying as some muricans can be.
