omhper (22902) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2010
Bottled at Bishops Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Hazy purple/ruby, faint head. Tart, lemony cherry aroma. Light bodied with clean mouthfeel. Sweet ripe cherries against a tart, almost vinegary background. Slight tanninic cherry stone bitterness. Some lovely flavour/aroma components, but a little hard/edgy.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
Bottle. Nose askew with buttery, strawberry Campino notes at first, but a puckering, lambic cherry tartness teases out as the head dissipates. Pours burgundy with a fleeting, creamy pink-grey collar. Tart but manageable, with mellowing wafer and cream, and a fresh, acidic base of Drie Fonteinen-like Brie, tart funky cherry and mildew. Impressive. Could maybe just do with the wildness and yoghurt-like sour turning up a notch: the final impression is a little watery. Still, a pretty convincing, lambic-like sour cherry beer.

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Taste thanks to Gene!
bright red, thin white bubbly head. Light cherry, cinnamon, thin and citric flavor, cherry syrup, bit of paper. Fruity, puckering finish, light heat and acetic acid. Body highly carbonated, well balanced.

gyllenbock (7229) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2010
Bottle, vintage 2009. A lot of yeast in the bottle. Nice dark red color, small head. Quite sour aroma of cherries and soil. Sour taste of cherries, wood, soil, semi sweet. A lot of carbonation. Drinkable but not that exciting, a bit watery mouth feel. The aftertaste was rather long and dry.

Abio (1831) - Waasland, BELGIUM - OCT 12, 2010
Pours out dark redish. Medium small to medium head, should hold some longer. Smell is sourn-sweet fruits. Taste is sour cherish, almost nothing else. Some alcohol, lightly spiced. Not my beer, but knew that when bought the bottle.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Bottle. Burgundy pour with a bit of a chestnut hue, topped with a medium sized pink head that rapidly fades away completely. Very enticing aroma with black and sour cherry; nicely complimented by wood and earth. Flavor begins with fairly intense sour cherry, which gives way to vinous red wine notes. Background notes of wood, strawberry, cranberry, acetic acid, and earth. Carbonation is a bit too active. Overall, a tasty and very easy to drink sour ale.
