Cloudy red with a small white head. Aroma of cherries mostly, with funk, and a bit of oak and coconut. Dry and tart cherry flavour with bretty funk mostly. A bit thin mouthfeel, but delicious beer

Leighton (11855) - 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.

August 16, 2011 - 750ml bottle courtesy of nate2g shared with .. several other folks. 2009 bottle, only 250 bottles made. Ruby-amber, diminishing white head, looked lovely. Vinous, oaky, soft aroma - big red wine tannins, sweet and sour, juicy - the brett is not all that prevalent but the oak, oh my the oak, yes. Taste - frickin’ great - orange zest, red wine, light oak and alcohol - so good, a joy to drink - that’s how you do barrel-aging!! Average body, a bit sticky, lightly acidic, decently carbonated, a sophisticated tingly finish of green oak and citrus bitterness. So good.

NikkTwist (1745) - 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.

skortila (4619) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2010
On tap @ Pre ZBF. The aroma has cherries, wood. Hazy, red coloured beer with a thin head. The taste is slightly sour, has cherries, woody tones, perhaps some vanilla. Good balance there. Nice brew.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2011
translucent dark red, thin cream white head. Nose is sweet, heavy cherry with light Cinnamon and faint squash. Flavor similar but less spice, more cherry dominance, bit sticky and lightly seedy in lengthy finish. Too thin, needs more carb. Nice, spiced nose, flavor could use a bit more variation, bit of oak in finish.

Scopey (7392) - 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.

Beautiful red-dark amber color; medium sized compact head. Aroma of cherry stones, then soap, light vinegar, caramel and cream; very interesting. The body is very thin, the mouthfeel dry and acidic; there is some light, dry caramel flavor, with light cherry flavor, some vinous character, fruits (grapes and plums). The final is a bit astringent and sour, dry, with light tones of roasted nuts.
