Ratings are after I force carbonated it with my soda stream. As it poured straight from the bottle with no carbonation I found it almost completely undrinkable. The carbonation really changed everything about this beer.

Horrible waste of money, no carb, zero, thick sour syrup mess. Tastes nothing like cherries, more like unsweet cranberries. Aectic acid is the only flavor profile, so if you want to drink a glass of red wine vinegar seek this out. I don't write too many BA reviews, but this is to warn people from wasting your money, people are being nice with past reviews!

You can smell the funk right away. It tastes maybe more like cranberries rather than cherries. Woody. Very little cinnamon undertones. Honestly, not worth the money spent on it. I could have bought 3 Marriage Parfiat Krieks, which, in my opinon, is WAY better.

375 ml bottle into a teku

No pop from the cork, pours w/o any head and very low carb, kind of a light brownish reddish plum. Nose is a little overwhelming..yes some sour cherry, but more musty leathery oak and tart plum...a little vanilla there too. On the tongue the cherries become dominant...primarily sour but some sweet juicy cherry notes as well, especially as it lingers on the back. Nice pucker, not bright though; really nice to sit, sip, and savor.
