Thanks to d4radio for the bottle!

Pours a deep murky brown with a huge light tan head that's pretty foamy. Good retention.

The strongest smell I get is sour cherries. Can definitely tell there is some maltiness to this and lots of brett.

Starts out with some oxidized caramel sweetness. The brett takes over and adds a sour note although just general sourness, not the cherries from the nose. Finishes slightly earthy and bitter with a touch of oak. Sourness is very minor.

Lots of carbonation. A little too much really with a medium mouthfeel.

Odell missed the mark on this one. The flavor profile completely clash and it ends up just tasting like the one time my homebrewed brown ale got infected. The sourness does not at all complement the base beer in this case. Slightly better as it warmed, but still really difficult to get through a glass.

Mouthfeel - A little heavy. Well carbonated.

Overall - A clash of flavors. Meh.
