THANK YOU to dra19 for breaking into this at the tasting. Ive been looking at it on his shelf for a while, and he mustíve been drunk enough to say go ahead. Nice bright pour, with a puckering sour smell. The cherry flavor isnít enough to overpower the sourness of it, like some lambics, which adds even more to the overall beer. Alcohol is a little high for a lambic, but you canít really tell while drinking it. Very very nice.

750ml bottle shared thanks to Lukaduke! Pours bright red with a finger of pink head. Beautiful nose of layered barnyard, toasty oak spice, dusty funk and juicy earthy cherry. Palate is similar with nice sweetness of earthy tart cherry spice, complex farmy funk, nice level of tartness and a finish of drying oak. Great!

2010 bottle. Thanks angst! Aroma is huge funky cotton and damp basement, leather, horse blanket, cherry skins, and vinegar. Tastes super sour but still smooth. Vinegar, cherries and funk. Delicious stuff.

ineedbeer (1701) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 16, 2016
2011 bottle. Aroma is really nice with lots of funkiness and balanced, dry sour cherry notes. Some light oak notes with moderate herbal character. Nice, earthy funk. Pours a somewhat hazy, purple red with with a medium sized, slightly pink, white head that recedes to the edges where it lingers. Light lacing and no legs. Flavor is slightly sweet with a moderate acidity. Moderate tart cherry notes. Lots of herbal funk with some nice earthy notes as well. Light oak notes. Great balance of funk and cherry. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a really nice beer. The cherry has faded nicely, but is still vibrant and the funk has really come through and worked greatly.

digrod (138) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Bottled 10/17/2008. Pours a hazy Amber with thin bubbly head. Aromas of cherry jolly rancher, biscuits, fruit basket. Flavors are similar plus plum, apple cider vinegar (in a good way), and sweet oak. Finish is fruity, tart cherry, oaky, tannic, and long. This is by far one of the great beer tasting experiences in my life and totally worth a perfect beer score. Absolutely no faults or imperfections in this brew. Happy New Year!!!

Maakun (3397) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle at Klooster. Dark red with beautiful small light pink head. Lots of cherries, red berries, yoghurt, green apple, lime, cola flavoured candy, sourdough, touch of malts. Taste is fruity sour, which deepens into a light acidic sourness, then a light sweet aftertaste. Medium mouth, slick texture with perfect carbonation. Very good stuff.
