omhper (19376) - 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 (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, 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 (3280) - 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.
