I get everything mentioned in Cisco's description - cherries, check. Wine barrel, check. Sour aging, check. All very well balanced. Excellent.

Poured into a tulip glass, revealing beautiful cherry juice-colored body with a fast-dissipating pink head. Very, very pretty. Smells like an oud bruin with lots of meaty, funkalicious notes and sweet, vanilla-y oak notes over a soft cherry backbone. Very good smells.

Tastes like an oud bruin, very sour and meaty with an intense tartness that marries well with the cherry and oak flavors. The cherry flavor itself is a little canned or concentrated tasting, not as fresh as some krieks I can remember, and there is a latent metallic tinge to the flavor that may be a remnant of the oud bruin collective. Mouthfeel is a little grainy, a little tingly from the carbonation, and dry. Light to medium-bodied. Very drinkable but very flavorful.

Overall I really like it. I wish I had more to enjoy with some cheese.

A- pours a garnet red with a finger of tannish/pink colored head that recedes pretty quickly. Not much lacing but the rest of the beer makes up for it.

S- The nose on this bad boy is incredible! Starts out with rich oak from the barrel. Notes of rich almost cedar quality eminates from the glass. Assertive tartness and barnyard goaty funk blends in next with beautiful esters and acidity from the Brett and those crazy bugs that make wild beer so interesting. Gigantic tart cherry and rhubarb cobbler aromas on the finish with a crusty malt profile on the finish. The aroma is so well intergrated and each part complements the other with prosision and elegance.

T- flavor is tart and funky up front with big cherry pie and rhubarb cobbler. Crusty malt like baked pie crust explodes with an intense vineous note and big oak barrel. Finishs with beautiful flemish red like acidity, horseblanket funk and a bone driness with the oaky tart cherry lasting long into the aftertaste. This is beautiful it's one of those beers you hate to see gone.

MF- slick and smooth mouthfeel with a dry oaky finish. Heavier medium body with average carbonation.

D- delicious refeshing and complex. Hell yes this is drinkable.

750 mL bottle poured into a tulip

A- A deep burgundy color with a small one finger head that fades quickly.

S- Tart cherries, oak, a hint of lemon and funk.

T- Sour cherries, tart lemons, some funk and oakiness. Well balanced.

M- Light to medium body, smooth, crisp, refreshing.

D- Easy to drink and very enjoyable. Solid sour and worth the money.
