Huge thanks to yourefragile for sharing. Transparent pale yellow / orange body with a small head. Aromas of white wine, oak, lacto, funk, earth, cherry. It actually took me a minute to get the cherry character, but it's there, emerging more as the beer is allowed to open up. Delicious. Spritzy carbonation with a light, but not thin, body. Elegantly crafted and balanced. Well done.

Pour is clear light pink with a tight white head. Nose has a fair bit of heat and plastic, a good bit of leather brett, moderately strong cherry aroma. Flavor has a hint of the plastic, but less. More robust sour cherry flavor, fairly ripe, brett is a bit lighter, still fairly leather and dusty. Moderate carb, more body than I expected, very dry finish.

Bug thanks dan for popping this at zwanze day. Poured murky yellow, deep and rich color. Noise is soft woody cherry with some sweet tart funk. Taste is really refined cherry flavor. Deep and lush and complex but cherry at great. Super easy drinker simply delicious. A highlight in a day of beer.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour fruit and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with nice sour fruit qualities all around.
