2008 750ml bottle.

Dark blood red, tiny bit of pink head. Aroma is heavy on the tart cherry with a ton of new pool toys. Flavors are mild sour cherry, lactic and a unique funky hay and moldy wood. Mild carbonation. Decent but not worth the price tag. I LOVE 3F gueuze. Their fruit beers are not on the same level though.

I pulled the trigger on the big bottle. 750ml poured into a Russian River Belgian Stemmed glass.

Bottled 28 April, 2010.

A - Pours a clear, Koolaid red with only a few white bubbles then they are gone.

S - Super tart and funky smelling. Sour with some slight cherry tones.

T - Tart and funky fruit, very slight cherry finish.

D - Lower carbonation, light body. Sour and tart throughout.

O - Soft and light, but super tart.

750ml bottle poured into a snifter. Opened to celebrate the birth of my 3rd child, It's a Boy! Major thanks to Phelps for this in the Tickers BIF.

A: Beautiful reddish pink color, with a nice ruby glow when held to the light. About a half finger of white head with a touch of pink tint. Good retention and beautiful lacing.

S: Big funky, tart, sour cherries. Light traces of oak in the background. Nothing complex but smells awesome.

T: Sweet cherries upfront immediately taken over by tartness. Light funkiness and sourness comes through in the middle. Cherries consuming the finish and aftertaste. Super tasty.

M: Light body. Medium high carbonation. Puckering is pretty big until you adjust. Mouth continues to water for a while after each drink.

O: One of the top sours I've had. Just a tasty drinkable brew.
