cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 25, 2009
Draft @ redlight redlight. Pours clear ruby, no head, some champagne bubbles. Cherry nose, musty cherry pie spices, a little cardboard. In flavor, cherries, cherry pie spiciness, a little grain, cardboard, lightly tart. Slightly watery body, a bit drying. Overall rather thin and insubstantial. I was underwhelmed after having had so many other good to great beers from Alvinne.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a crystal clear, bright crimson red color strewn with fizzy carbonation bubbles. A minimal, quickly disappearing head leaves no lacing behind. There’s not much to the nose, really just a bit of cardboard, stale grain, and mildly tart red cherries. There’s no depth of aroma whatsoever. Likewise, the flavor fails to impress. Slightly medicinal, the sweet-tart cherry seems flat, and the grain bill just seems spent. Light and watery, the body is intensely fizzy and just far from appealing. This is one of the poorer attempts at sour ale in my recent memory.

BMan1113VR (7898) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 22, 2009
My last rating to enter from the Stone Sourfest, a very good thing as my eyes are burning from looking at a computer screen. Pours with a read body and a small white head., Aroma of cherry and lightly sour, not much else. Taste is cherry watery, light vinegar and hay. Not much going on. Light bubbles.

JohnnyJ (4817) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Bright clear red pour, thin white head. Taste of cherries, red berries, light malt and sourness. Pretty simple beer. I thought it was a Kriek when I tasted it.

marcus (7308) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 21, 2009
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.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2009
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.

WeeHeavySD (3361) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 19, 2009
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.

bhensonb (12149) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 17, 2009
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.

Oakes (13272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2009
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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2009
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.
