(750ml bottle, BB Feb 2015) Pours a murky dirty blood red body with a spare off-white head. Aroma of cherry, yogurt, vinous, barnyard, red currants, wet leather, and wood. Flavor of cherry, Bourgogne tannins, earth, and lacto with a dry wood finish. Excellent.

obguthr (5577) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Sour cherry and persimmon nose, with the cherry very prominent. Rose colored, no head. Tart cherry flavor, light wood, and hints of rose petals. Delightful level of sourness, good degree of complexity.

75cl bottle. It pours bright red -ruby with just a ring og pinkish bubbles. Aroma is fruity with loads of tart cherries. Nice sourness with wood notes. The taste of cherries with vanilla, wood and sour. The aftertaste is sour with a little bitter and dry sweet. Very nice beer.

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

Bottle at PreZBF 2010. Hazy dark red coloured with a small pink head. Fruity aroma of red wine and cherries with notes of oak. Light acidic flavour of red wine, berries and cherries with notes of marzipan. Tart finish of marzipan.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2010
Draught at Pre-ZBF 2010. Murky reddish with laced head. Great aroma of ripe fruits, vanilla, oak and spicy coconut mix. Itís quite unique. The aroma shows through in flavour as well. The balance is superb but my only flaw is that it tends to finish on a strangely sweet and sour note. Perhaps itís a little íripeí at the moment. A nice interesting brew.

bierkoning (12265) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2010
Bottle from bierkompass.de. Reddish brown color. Cherry juice and a hint of oak in the aroma. Sourish vinous flavor with vanilla, cherry juice, marzipan. Low on carbon. Very pleasant, tastes a bit like a very old sweetened kriek lambic.

TBone (16079) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 19, 2010
Bottled 75cl "Kerasus Bourgogne Barrel Oak Aged" (Alvinne shop, BB 02/2015)
Hazy nut brown-reddish color, small off-white head. Sour fruity nose, tart fruityness probably from red grapes (Burgundy) together with sour cherries. Red wine is really evident in the flavor, red grapes and cherries mixed with sourness in nice balance. Very wineous with hints of vanilla. Lingering tart fruityness in the aftertaste. One of the best red wine barrel aged beers Iíve tasted.

NikkTwist (2655) - 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.
