Part of the big share at Hunahpu’s Day 2014, poured into souvenir taster. Hazy red body with pink to white head that quickly fades. Some spots of lace left behind. Aroma is sour cherry, brett funk, earthy yeast, and cereal malt. Taste is bitter bretty earthiness, tart, sour, and medicinal cherries, and some malty sweetness. Light body, sticky texture, average carbonation, bitter medicinal brett finish, which is where this one fell apart for me.

Poured from a 16oz can into a Crooked Stave tulip.

Pours a murky amber with a pretty large one finger bubbly off-white head. Smell is sour cherry with that brett brux making the aroma that of a kriek. taste is musty cherry, leather, tobacco, and a little earthy grassyness. Feel is minimal tartness, medium-high carb, smooth, crisp and refreshing.

Overall this is not a sour ale by any means. There brett is there to really dry it out and bring that funky cherry to play. Still a very nice beer to sip on.
