Pours a darker reddish tinted brown, moderate cap of off white head, decent retention. Scent brings berries, tart cherry, red wine and apple cider vinegar, lightly herbal and medicinal. First sip brings blended vinegar and berry notes, can pick out each individually but quite even in the taste... tangy and tart, lightly sweet. Medium bodied, a splash bubbly. Not as bold on the cherry front as i had hoped, mild vinegar and bright berry notes.

10 ounce pour on tap into a snifter glass, with a gorgegous appearance of a perfect dark cherry red. Clear, and a nice simple faint ring that renmains throughout of tight simple white bubbles. Gorgeous looking beer leaves a slight ruby/tawny mix port color hue upon finishing on the color.

Bouqueut is a unique sour bent of cherry but also of a framboise/strawberry sweet tinge. There is also a distinct acid that is practicaly red wine vinegar.

A giant taste of fruit cherry and strawberries with a good sour/acid balance. This isn't that sour at all actually and is extremely palatable and just the right amount of minimal carbonation, with perfect ABV drinkability. Just flat out great to drink and I would have another instantly.

Pours brown with a slight reddish hue. Small white foam head.

Smells ... like berries, actually. Cherries you say? If you say so. Smells sweet.

Taste is predominantly sweet, somewhat medicinal berry/cherriness. Maybe a slight pucker that lingers on the tongue. Not particularly sour.

Pleasant prickly mouthfeel.

Ok, ok. It's taken some time. But I've actually gotten a taste for sour beer.

Pours a hazy brown with a nice head that dies into a thin ring and a little bubbly island in the middle.

Smells of sourness and some vinegar-soaked cherries. Surprisingly sweet regardless.

Tastes sour, dry, vinegary and slightly sweet with a dry cherry finish.

Thick and creamy in the mouth. Nice.

Pretty dry and refreshing. Damn good and drinkable.
