maledictum (613) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours a slightly brownish, red liquid with a pink head. Aroma is a bit acidic and quite sweet with loads of cherry lollipop and cherries. Maybe a bit synthetic, definitely very fruity. Taste is actually rather dry, with lots of cherries and a hint of salad stalks towards the end. The acidity is quite held back, and the beer unfortunately dies rather fast. Still an ok brew.

probstblueribbon (2874) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2011
750 ml bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 2009 vintage. Slight gush. 24MA11.

App.: Cloudy deep pinkish-brown with a small pinkish head. Aroma: A lot of minerals, frank tartness, a bit of sour cherry, light barnyard, horse blanket, leather, funk, bitter herbals, some faint brown sugar hints, pretty stern stuff. Palate: Medium-ish body, soft effervescence, a little astringency, puckering sourness. Flav.: Bracing sourness, some tart cherries, a little wood, only a touch of the Lambic/Saison character, hints of friendlier black cherries, a wee hint of brown sugar; really tart with a mineral and watery tart cherry finish.

Just about turned my face inside out. Too tart for this boy.

Boutip (4656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2011
Bottle: Poured a clear light red color ale with a large bubbly head with average retention and limited lacing. Aroma of oak and sour cherries with light acidic notes is very enjoyable and refreshing. Taste is a nice mix between some oak notes with sour cherries. Well balanced tart notes with a light acidic touch. Body is quite full for style with great carbonation. Well brewed with great drinkability and complexity notes.
