Pours a murky reddish brown with a short lived head. The aroma is a bit funky, almost stinky as some may say, Barnyard. The cherries come through nicely as well.

Pops the mouth, puckers like a sour candies. Completely wild and has excellent cherry flavor. Oak, cherry, lemon rind acidity, slightly toasty malt flavor. Delicious and very sour. The beer is great to sip and savor.

Overall, this is an exceptional American made sour kriek. Very lively and alcohol is well hidden. World class beer and worth every penny.

2013 vintage. Cork & cage. Pour this one SUPER SLOW! Keep that yeast in the bottle. If you want to taste the dregs, wait until you pour most of it out. Then stir em up.

Pours a DEEP ruby red. VERY minimal
Lacing present but the color is amazing.

Smells of lactic acid and brettanomyces. Very little cherry aroma present.

Tastes of sour fruit, Lactobacillus, very slight sour cherry. This brew has one of the best sour flavors I have ever had. Super tart, with a slight cherry finish.

Feels amazing on the palate with some great sour notes. Unreal Puckering!

Overall a great sour! Super tart but really drinkable. Would drink this every day of the week if I could.
