UPDATED: AUG 8, 2004 Bottled. Massive thanks to Duff for smuggling this through the doormen at GBBF and sharing it with (in order of rating of the beer) Joeh, myself, Chris_o and SilkTork. I think a couple of the Danish lads had a swig too. A fantastic sour woody welcoming aroma to this pinky red beer with a baby pink coloured head. The taste is sour but not over sour. There is a hint of fudge in there too, and once the cherry taste has filled the mouth there is then a smooth mouthfeell of Angel Delight type smoothness. A wonderfully brewed beer fully deserving of the praise it receives here.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2007 Color is a reddish pink. It is opaque. Aroma is yeasy with an abundances of cherry. Slight spice in the flavor. Mouth feel is like champaign, very bubbly. Finish is most tart, but accompanied with a fair amount of sweetness. My favorite of the new beers I enjoyed with MartinT, tiggmtl and Rastacouere.

madsberg (10184) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2004
Bottled: Reddish coloured. Light cloudy. Huge white head with a red gleam. Sweets, fruit (cherry), earthnotes and a great sourness in the aroma. Very balanced flavour. Earth, cherry, sharp acidic sourness, light background sweetness. Its all there for you to enjoy. Is cleansing, dry and smooth in the end. A really top class beer.
Alas I got to this beer. I’ve brought it home from Belgium after buying it at Delirium Cafe for 25€. It was worth every penny and I would buy it again if possible.

Great cherry aroma, pure cherries and acidic tang. Cloudy strawberry hazy with thin pink head. Medium-light body with soft carbonation. Tart puckering cherry aroma, lactic gueuze notes. Finish is chalky bitter, cherry sour. Great lambic. Smooth cherry after.

So smooth, so sweet, so tart, so frity, so complex. In one word: So good. Almost worth the price.
