3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This red beer poured with almost no head and a vinous cherry aroma. It has a delicious kriek-like flavor, problably effected from the special Alvinne yeast working on the cherries. Subtly tart and very tasty.

draft @ redlight redlight. Cherry aromas, strawberry and cranberry, as well. Pours reddish purple with little to no head. Slightly tart cherry flavors, cherry skins, cranberries, cranberry juice. Finishes clean. Not bad! I could use a little more tartness though.

Always pyshced to have a sour that I can’t get for any kind of real reason. Pours red cloudy with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet, taste is tart and light and fruity with cherry, good to have, not a highlight.

Pours brilliant ruby. Very brilliant. Mild cherry aromas. Very cherry flavor - not too tart cherry with some cherry skin. Fiishes mildly tart and sweet all at once. Extremely refreshing.

Cloudy purplish-red. Fairly pure cherry aroma with decent malt base. Light body. Lots of cherry with a clean lactic tartness in the finish. Good cherry brew.

Bottle, thanks to oh6gdx (Patrik) for sharing. Perfect cherry-red/purple color. Any scant fizzy head disappears almost immediately. Aroma is a little disappointing, especially as we tried the Keralensis first. Getting lots of yogurt/lactic acid. The fruit is fairly subdued and more marachino-like than the blend too. A nice degree of carbonation here, barely there and pretty flat except for a soda water like spritz. The flavors are much more cherry than the aroma lets on. Tons of fruit here. A very nice cherry quality. The beer is very drinkable and finishes astringent. Has a nice degree of natural tartness, minus any funk.

Bottled (thanks fonefan!). Deep reddish brown colour, small pink head. Aroma is sour and tart cherries along with mild hints of alcohol. Flavour is cherrypips, sour wood and some sweet maltyness. Well balanced and nice!

(33cl bottle, BB Sep 2013, Lot: 278) Pours a cloudy red body with a small pink head. Aroma of cherries, earth, and florals. Flavor of strong, bold, fresh cherries, funky sourness, and some marzipan. Excellent sour!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Snifter @ Ginger Man. Color is dark rose red, cannot see through it. Has a small pinkish head. Aroma is just cherry, not much else, not juice or soda but cherry beer. Taste is more tart cherry but jolly rancher tart. Its cool, not too girlie. It is not sour, barely tart. As it warms the aroma becomes a bit more dank cherry. Nothing off as some of the ratings just a cherry beer.
