Deep, deep ruby red in color, bright red head. Aroma is extremely sour. Taste is definitely a Kriek-hits you square in the mouth with a fermented fruitiness that doesn’t turn too sweet. Normally I enjoy these sour krieks, but this one just made my mouth twist a little. Luckily, the decaying fruit flavor dissipates into a sweeter aftertaste, but...

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled Dec 2006. Poured flat with no head. Aroma is woody, sherry-like with only slight fruit aroma. Appearance is very deep brown-red. Tastes medium sour with a woody, fruity taste, much like a balsamic vinegar. Medium body slightly oily, no real carbonation with a long, sweet and sour finish.
Overall this is a very Interesting beer. Cherry flavouring has deepened and mellowed, making this like a tawny port rather than a beer. The sourness is also still there, but again has deepened and lengthened without losing it’s edge.
A pretty special beer for special occasions that makes you think about beer in a very different way.

Small bottle from State Line Liquors. Dark red pour with a small head. Nice cherry nose with a bit of earth and funk. Surprisingly sweet for these guys, but certainly not too much so. Bright, tart, cherry flavor on the palate. Light and effervescent. Nice balance of sweetness and tartness. Very, very good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
100th review, had it at Brewers Beer Bar, Gothenburg. Pours deep hazy red, a minor pink ring on the surface. Aroma is cherries, oak, wood, some sugar hints, funk, slight tarty vinegar hint. Taste is initially sour cherries up-front with a careful sweeter side coming along. Oak, horse blanket, vinegar in the back. Funky but not overly so. Dry finish. Medium body, soft to medium carbo. Nicely balanced.
