wedgie9 (2638) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Tasted on 12/1/12 from a bottle. Pours cloudy deep brick amber with a thin pink head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is funky cherry with cinnamon oak and a dry vinous note. The flavor is nicely sour with all of the tart cherry, funk, dry wine, and cinnamon oak from the nose. The body is medium and tannic with just lighter than average carbonation and a long sour cherry and vinous oaky and tannic finish.

Deep red colour. Medium carbonation. Complex aroma of wood, sour fruit and red wine. Easy drinkable. Rather thin palate.

Tolle leuchtend rote Farbe, sauer-fruchtiger Geruch. Der AT ist vollmundig und angenehm sauer! Schöne leichte Kirschtöne, dazu angenehm Säure mit deutlich holzigem Einschlag!

NikkTwist (2769) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Hazy cherry color with a thin bubbly head. Unfiltered cherry flavor. Very sour, but nicely so. Rich cherry pulp. Slight flemish funk but mostly a clean sour. Had from the same barrel twice and has gotten more complex and sour with age.

(2009 Vintage) / limited to 250 bottles – 75 cl. bottle split with Belgbeergeek – thx to him: (A) Bourgogne dark red, no head, pretty wine-looking – (S) reminds me of Kerasus 2010, lots of nice tart cherries with a slight sweet side to them, slightly woody – (T) slightly watery tart cherries, vineous leading into the slightly bitter wooden, tannins, Bourgogne part – (B) definitely thinned out by the BA, basically just takes Kerasus 2010 a notch down, slight sweetness & tart cherry finish of the base beer is replaced by ok Bourgogne, tannins, wood,… soft carb. ok beer, definitely too much thinned out

Koelschtrinker (17681) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 23, 2011
Ausgewogen säuerlicher Antrunk mit angenehmen aber milden Kirschnoten. Im Mittelteil fruchtiger, vollmundig, die dezente Säure macht das Bier außerordentlich süffig. Die Säure wird dann intensiver, das Bier gleichzeitig trocken. Dennoch ausgewogen und angenehm würzig wobei die kirschige Säure immer im Vordegrund steht. Geringe Süße zum Schluß. Gelungen! 9/11/11/11/11/11
