Mikkeller monks brew with cherries aged in red wine barrels. Bought this to share with a buddy on a recent trip to Los Angeles. We we expecting a nice sour Kreik style beer and mikkeller rarely disappoints. This was one of the rare complete failures. The nose was enough to make you gag while topping the glass. The taste was as far as possible from the description. It was like someone took a the beer, threw in a bag of rotten raisins and prunes and aged it for a year in plain barrel that first soaked with moldy toilet water. Drain pour after two sips.
