Corked bottle.

Appearance - didn't expect it to look like that right out of the bottle, first thing that came to mind was that it looked kind of like Rose Sparkling Wine. Even the head was bubbly like it would be.

Smell - sweet and sour, cherries. Nothing special.

Taste - cherries, tart.

Mouthfeel - its alright, no carbonation, light to medium bodied.

Overall - its an alright beer, nothing special. First one of the style, not a huge fan of it, probly wont drink too many of them.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at mrbubbler's tasting.

Pours a hazy orange-red with a foamy reddish-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of grain, cherry, cherry juice, and medicinal aromas. Taste is much the same with cherry, earth, chalk, and medicinal flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but the medicinal qualities I am getting aren't too pleasant.

Serving type: bottle.

Sour! I enjoy sour, beligian beers and am always looking for something different, as other reviewers have said. This tastes just like a sour cherry. Zero syrupy sweetness, but a nice amount of malt to make the sour pleasant.I liked the intense cherry flavor - found it very natural and not candy-like at all. Danced to great blues last night at Oskar Blues in Longmont, CO with a couple glasses of Cherry Kriek to hand.
