jerohen (2029) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2006
On draft at In De Wildeman, Amsterdam. Clear dark red coloured, no head whatsoever. Cherry aroma, not very complex. Watery flavour, this is like cherry juice. Not impressed i must say.

radiomgb (2321) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2006
Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2006. Deep cherry red in colour, small dissipating pink head. The aroma was of dark cherries, some vinegar, wood, light acidity. The flavour is dominated by the cherries (a good thing), some wood, tart and acidic. Dry, bitter mouthfeel, medium body, mild carbonation. Finishes very long and dry, again with lots of cherries. Very good stuff.

caesar (5295) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2006
Tap, in de Wildeman. Clear red color, no head or carbonation. Aroma of cherry, but soft. Taste has a soft tartness, bit watery, cherries ofcourse, not sweet. Thin body. Quite nice, but a bit too soft.

yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 26, 2006
On tap at Cph Beerfestival. Clear, cherry-red beer with no carbonation and head. Aroma of sour cherries and cellar. Some other berries as well. Tart and acidic in the mouth, with cherries dominating the flavor. Thin bodied, like a watered-down juice, but not that low on flavor. It cleans your palate quite well. (060519)

3fourths (8215) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 Draft pour
Consumed at the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation, Opstal, May 2006

Slightly sweet flavor, syrupy, low carbonation. Sweet candy-like nose of red grapes and cheap grape juice. Really not that impressed by this one. Simple and juice like, in my opinion. When I sampled this the next day at the Drie Fonteinen restaurant, it was a little better. Had a much more striking nose of sweet, rich cherries, perhaps the most full cherry nose I’ve experienced. However, the flavor and texture didn’t impress me too much. Thinner than hoped, simple juice like flavors at times.

henrikb (1259) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2006
Draught – Beautiful deep red body, big bubbled head; Big open incredible nose: ripe pine apple, cherry, orange peel; Balanced, thin, watery body; Into quite harsh watery finish with cherry, grapefruit, citrus. Great beer but could be much bigger (I think I have had it much bigger before!)

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2006
Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2006. Red colour with no head. Aroma of cherry and other berries. Nice acidity flavour of cherry, sourness and little woody-like. Very nice one for a lambic style.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2006
Reddish colour with a small pink head. Fruity, light tart and sweet aroma with notes of yeast. Fruity acidic flavor with a yeasty and dusty note.

MiP (13725) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2006
Draught. Quite clear, nice, deep red colour. No head. Slightly sour, slightly sweet, slightly nauseating cherry aroma. The flavour is quite sour and not very cherryish. No carbonation.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2006
(On tap) Beautiful, clear red - like berry juice - no head and no carbonation. Cherries in the nose with a vague tartness. Thin and watery with distinct cherry accents. Almost light a vaguely tart fruit juice, but very quaffable. 190506
