HonusWagner (1978) - Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 Better on second taste, going to hedge my score for now because I had one bottle with less cherry than expected and one that was quite solid.

joeiznogood (10) - DENMARK - MAY 15, 2016
At home, 2014 bottle (37.5cl) Pour: Dark, intense red (lives up to the name!), next to no carbonation and thus no head at all. Smell: Sour cherry, candied cherry, sweet, jello Tastes - First: sweet, intense fruit; mids: dark, sour grape; after: tartness, lingering black cherry Verdict: Overall very pleasant taste! The sour grapes play well with the natural sourness of the lambic.

olsvammel (5294) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2016
Bottle at Örebro Ölcafé. Fruity and tart smell with berries and wood. Similar taste. Surprisingly clean taste. Relatively mild acid. Refreshing. Dry finish. A bit too mild but still nice.

Advocate_Ames (568) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Pours a dark red with a simple pinkish foam head. Aroma was of juicy black cherries and barnyard notes. Tasting was of no surprise, tart cherries. There was a pleasant sour and acidic flavor. Overall this drink was rather good besides the soft carbonation. I really enjoyed the tasty and semi dry finish.

Sample @Linköping Beer Expo 2016. Red with pink head. Aroma is acidic with cherries, wood, barnyard, funk and light manure. Taste offers high acidity and a certain sweetness with cherries, wood, vanilla and funk. Medium mouthfeel, minimal carbonation, medium sourness overall and clean woody cherry finish.
