What a let down.

A- Poured fresh from a can into a HF stem glass. Pretty terrific cherry red color, some quickly dissipating white head.

S- Here the trouble began. Not much in the way of sour funk, but plenty of artificial, semi-medicinal cherry notes. It was off-putting from the first sniff.

T- Not very sour, not a whole lot of Brett charachter. Robotussin came right through the middle, finished that way too.

M- Fine, not thin, not syrupy.

Overall this was disappointing. It didn't have the sourness that you'd expect and the cherry flavor was a little perfumey and artificial on the nose and pallet. This was fresh, would age change it? Don't know, but worth finding out.

2.51/5  rDev -38.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

A: Bold, cloudy, ruby red. Very loud carbonation.

S: Musty brett funk, vinegar, and cherry jolly ranchers.

T: The tartness is there but overwhelmed by the artificial-tasting flavor of cherries and a bitter, cough syrup finish. Honestly, this tastes a lot like Robitussin.

M: Not sure if the slight syrupy sensation is there or an artifact of the cough syrup taste.

O: Happy to have tried it, more than happy to never have it again. Given that I traded something quite good for this, I might have to power through this one.
