Pours a dark-brown colour with a bit of haze. Head is beige, foamy, but doesn't really stick around, just leaving a thin rim after a while. Not bad.

Smells sweet, with a touch of coconut, chocolate, slight roastiness and a touch of cherry. Yeah, pretty decent.

Taste is awesome. Roasty, with cocoa, chocolate, but a fair whack of coconut and cherry on there as well. Slightly tart on the back but it works in really well with the other darker characters. Nice dessert porter.

Dry body, tingly carbonation. Alcohol is well-hidden but it's nothing special body-wise.

Nice edge to a traditional style. Sticks to dryness, which is a bit of a shame. Nice flavours otherwise.

Dark brown verging on black. Small tan head. Poor head retention.

Tart cherry and oak. Quite vinous and fruity.

Slightly tart. Fruity. Oaky and with a touch of chalky dark malt. Not as sour as the tap version and not as good for it.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Meh.

Nowhere near as good as the keg version. A little lacking on the tartness I remember from GABS and more chalky.

Oh yes another release from my go to fav Aussie brewery of fine out there weird beers and yeah not everyone's a fan but ill try everything these guys release and ur pours a dark cherry brown hue with one finger creamy head and a subtle touch of lacing,the smell is a touch weird but its not horrible there's a prominent sourness that try's to hide behind bananas,cherries,strawberries and a stale mustiness,the mouthfeel is medium bodied with a touch too much carbonation and the tastes of sour cherries,oak,chocolate wheat,funk which are finished with a roasted slight sourness surprisingly really do work and apart from the slight overcarbonation and slight different smell that your nose was expecting my only regret would be not buying another one but I will that's for sure and I'm not the biggest fan of cherries either cheers.

Pours black with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows funky notes, vinegar characters, cherries and chocolate. Very interesting. Like black forest cake.
Flavours are not quite as impressive, its more about the roasted malt, although some acidity shows through.
Could use a bit more carbonation.

Tried on-tap at the GABS festival in Melbourne. This was Moon Dog's GABS entry, a collaboration with Norway's Nøgne Ø which they called a Cherry Wheat Porter.

Pours a deep brown colour with quite a clarity to it, turning yellow at the edges when the light sneaks through. Body is solid and doesn't have much noticeable carbonation. Head is a fine beige ring. Looks pretty decent.

Nose is pleasant: cherry and chocolate both definitely come through along with subtle secondary flavours like concord grape, kirsch, sharp, spicy cinnamon and an underlying booze character. It's not really extremely potent: if it kicked me in the face with its strength as well, it would be exceptional.

Peppery entry on the palate, before a big up-tilt in boozy cherry. Sherry sweetness and booze mingled with more of that spicy cinnamon character. On the back is a pleasant return to smoothness and sweetness—coconut, chocolate with a pleasant bite of grape juice. Dry on the finish with a cocoa character lingering in the aftertaste.

Feel could be heavier and it would lend the beer more gravitas. Maybe it's the wheat, which I don't get any other perceptible benefits from.

Overall, though, this is lovely stuff. Spicy, lots of character and delivering plenty of complexity and flavour. I like it a lot.
