The beer is a pinkish, salmon, light golden hue with a large fizzy head that rapidly dissipates. Aromas of oak, cherry, earth. Typical lost Abbey funk. Cherries and earth tones with an acetic finish. Not on the level of Cable Car Kriek, but still a tasty beer.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale pinkish orange. Nice white head. Gushes slowly in the bottle.

Smell - Musty and acidic. Cherry and acidity. Oaky.

Taste - Cherry. Acetic acid. Musty and oaky. Grainy. Nice sourness, but kinda dirty.

Mouthfeel - Medium light body. Well carbonated. Nice sourness.

Overall - Pretty tasty sour. Not exactly earth shattering, though.
