Reddish brown, no head, but some effervescence. The aroma is fruity....berries and cherry, a bit of grain, and not a lot of malt or hops. The taste is tart and refreshing...spritz and lots of fruit...I get more raspberry than cherry. Not sweet at all, this is a dry and engaging beer. Medium in body and nice.

This is an awesome, easy to find sour! Big cherry flavor and a refreshing tartness. So drinkable, it almost feels like you're drinking a soft drink. I highly recommend this beer to anyone that enjoys a good sour/wild ale.

Friek pours a reddish color with no head. Sweet and fruity aroma with a big sour bite. Taste is a bit sour with noticeable fruit, good sweetness. Good feel. Overall very solid wild ale.

Rose in color, with tons of carbonation. Smells of oak, funk, cherries, lemon peel and raspberries. Tastes like it smells, with lemon peel and oak dominating. Perfect balance of sweet and tart. Raspberry and cherry come through after the swallow. Mouth feel is as you would expect from a sour. Thin, but not watery. Overall, an enjoyable beer that i'd be glad to have again!

Pours a beautiful ruby/pink color, head retention is fairly shortlived similar to champagne.Smell is faint raspberries and funk but the taste is what makes this beer. Jammy, tart and dry very balanced, thin mouthfeel. Would prefer a little more body but this beer is a fantastic go to for any occasion, esp because it's fairly inexpensive, easy to find and approachable for most sour beer lovers.
