Leighton (11841) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2011
Bottle at CPK thanks to Thomas. Pours a slightly cloudy, bloody-ruby with no head. Aroma is all cherries and wood, slightly dank and funky. Light to medium sweet flavor, mild cherries and fruit, moderate sourness, some wood, a little stinging funkiness. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Finish is lightly dry with a wonderful, restrained sour character, nice wood, aged cherries. Very solid beer.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Draft at 2011 Max’s Belgian Fest at 2008 Oak Kerasus: Pours a transparent dark copper mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a semi-sweet toasty caramel and light fruity tart nose with some vinous oak. Starts with average fullness and light carbonation with some oily texture and light caramel and fruity tartness. Finishes drier and oaky with some lingering vinous flavor.

Mora2000 (5853) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a reddish color with an off-white head. The aroma is heavy on the dark fruit with some brown sugar and oak aged notes. Fairly complex and very enjoyable. The aroma is more of the same. I get some lightly tart dark fruit, strawberries and cherries, as well as some oak aging notes. The tartness is fairly minimal. The beer is easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

EugeneStraver (119) - Nootdorp, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2011
DBF Goes 20110320 (75 cl Bottle): A dark red beer, slightly cloudy with light-pink head. We found in the aroma some sweetness, but more cherry-like (also some sour) snell. Further wood and vanille. The taste is mainly cherry-like sour with some woodness bitter. A nice tasted beer.

Scopey (7376) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2011
On tap at CP&K at Alvinne meet the brewer night. The nose is sour cherry, sweet strawberry, metal and nettles. The taste is tart cherry, granny smith apple, lemon sherbet, egg and farmyard. It’s really smooth, slightly astringent and has a long dry finish. Another top quality sour ale from Alvinne.
