BuckeyeBoy (5834) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 4, 2015
Bottle pours out a dark cherry color topped with a tanish red head. Nose is cherries roast wood and some pepper. Taste is more of the cherries some roast lots of pucker tartness and a nice barrel presents.

nearbeer (4832) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 24, 2015
0.5l bottle indicates 6.9% abv, and says "brewed in 2014". I assume this is the same beer just a different vintage. Pours clear chestnut with some maroon tints. A ring and a few islets of creamy foam. Nose is dark cherries, balsamic vinegar, wood and malted chocolate. Mouth puckering beginning of vinegar and tart berries. Later sips show some wood, toasted malt, and hints of cream and toffee. Medium bodied and definitely acidic-sour, with a pleasant medium carbonation.

@ Brekeriet Bar, Hamnmästaren, Malmö aug. 2015: Rejält syrlig bärton, men dorfen har en aning klor. Lite feeling av tvål.

DutchDrebus (5562) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2015
Bottle (that didnt gush - praise the lord) @ joes. Hazy, dark bordeaux red colour with no head. Smells sour, dusty, yeast. Tastes sour, acidic, lactobacillus.. Basicly everything that’s sour. Also fruity and cherry. Medium body, soft carbo.

yngwie (16483) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2015
On tap at Haand Festival. Vintage 2013. A reddish light brown beer, unclear, and with a pinkish head. It’s lightly vinegar-ish on the nose, with toffee, fruit caramel and a solid dose of cherries. The flavor is pretty much the same, sour and vinegarish, some toffee too, and even more cherries than in the aroma. Tart on the palate, low on carbonation. Cherries, vinegar and some toffee in the finish. A bit challenging to drink, but it’s a tasteful beer anyway. 140524

Pyrmir (5474) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2015
330 ml bottle during Brussels vacation. Deep red with small off-white head. Aroma is sweet, lots of sour cherries, light caramel and wood. Taste is quite sweet, medium acidity, lots of cherries, lactic with no brett notes. Nice and pleasant

Noctilucus (106) - All over Belgium, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2015
Deep red with a thick white head. Aroma mixes barnyard elements with cherry and sour. The taste is more sour and less fruity than I expected, reasonably well bodied for its style though you would never detect that this is 7° ABV. Sour, strong taste though not really complex. A good alternative to gueuze based krieks.

RexTalionis (3489) - FINLAND - APR 6, 2015
Bottle. Mahogny ruby in color, off-white head. Sour notes, some cherry and malty vibes in aroma. Tart berries, bit of oak and cherries in taste. Sour fruity finish.
