Deep red pour from a 2012 bottle, courtesy of Adam. A little pink head. Aroma is sour cherry with a hint of vinegar. Flavor is a nice, tart, not-too sour balance of cherries and funk. Excellent. Glad I have bottles of my own.

375 mL bottle shared with ebone1988 and Gus. Used this to destroy the Mikkeller disaster. The pour is a dark ruby color with a tiny white head that fizzles off leaving no trace. The aroma is great. There is a lot of cherry. It's a great balance between tart and sweet. There is a little syrup present. The flavor is excellent. Lots of tart sour cherry right up front. There is a little yeastiness and a great cherry finish. The mouth feel is awesome. Light and crisp with a bubbly carbonation and a lingeringly tart and sour aftertaste. This is great. Breaks up the Mikkeller junk well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared with koleminer20 and Gus. Bottle from 2012. Aroma is cherry, sour, vinegar, skins, funk, really good. Appearance is dark red, light light pink head, slightly hazy. Taste is cherry, skins, sour, not much vinegar but some funk, a spice that is dry. Mouthfeel is medium body, light crisp carbonation, wonderful cherry candy aftertaste. Overall, this is probably the best cherry sour beer I’ve tasted.

MarcoDL (3977) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2016
Bottle at tasting. Red pink pour. Nice aroma of tart, cherry and horseblanket. Taste of funky barnyard, sour cherry, oak, old grain, soft red fruit and a nice complex finish. Fantastic.

dark red with average pink head, some cherry along with barnyard/funk/wild yeast in the nose, quite sour, some cherry taste along with more funk, very round, redwine like, very dry, very very nice one but the label-design...

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2016
12.7 oz bottle. Blood red with pink froth. Nose is black cherry jam, light funk and faint lemon zest. Super juicy, tart but silky. Taste is sour cherry, wild strawberry, skins and pits finishing dry with wine and wood. The most fruit forward lambic I’ve tried but not overly sweet or medicinal.

Holmen1 (4727) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2016
Flaske fra helsekosten på Kvaddå, delt med Ovesen på Holmens aktivitetsdag (innvielse av Grainfather!): dyp mørkerød med kort skum. Intens og deilig aroma og smak av kirsebær, meget vinøs og lekker. Mild bitterhet i avslutningen, og mersmak hele veien!

2014 bottle. Pours a hazy dark red with a mostly lasting thin foamy pink head. Aroma of cherries, more red fruits, raspberries, strawberries, natural yoghurt, some vanilla and lactose notes. Taste is of cherries and natural yoghurt, really tart, dry finish. Sticky sherbet oily mouthfeel with soft to medium carbonation.
