Thanks to Keir for cracking this one! Pours a straw yellow without much of a head. The nose is cardboard and some subtle cherry mustiness. The taste is cloying sweet with cardboard and some cherry. Ends with some hot spiciness and caramel. I would say this is overall weird. Super dry finish with a decent body. Overall, I was not a hug fan of this.

bottle #24/170

pours a deep ruby red. quite clear with basically no sediment. 1/2 inch of slightly pink head.

very deep ripe cherry. slight oak that has a very distinct character.

very tart and sour up front followed by a nice deep cherry flavor. oak is deep as well, a bit subtle. slight malty backing.

moderate carbonation, but light and easy

overall, i am impressed. would love to see more of this. great flavors and overall fun to drink.

Thanks, Dave. 12oz bottle poured into Narke tulip.

A - Pours a cherry red color, light off-white colored head, some bubbles on top, and that's about it.

S - Harsh plastic, mold, cherries, light tartness. Upon opening this one up, the moldy plastic smell really ruined my excitement for this beer. As it warmed, however, it went away. Very weird.

T - The taste made up for the not-so-good nose. Fruit juice, light cherry sourness, light tart notes. Not a huge sour-bomb and more fruity and sweet then anything else (think a slightly sour New Glarus Belgian Red). Pretty tasty.

M - Light body, light carbonation, dry finish.

O - Well, it started off horribly and ended pretty darn good. The harsh moldy notes died off after the beer warmed up a bit, so that's a good thing (smell was 2.5 when opened, and then 4.0 after it warmed). I would love to have another bottle, but this one is pretty .rar.
