bierkoning (10204) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2009
Bottle. Purple red color, cloudy. Cherry and marzipan in the aroma. In the flavor the brett is almost dominating the cherry juice. In the aftertaste the cherry and marzipan notes are clearly noticeable. A most enjoyable beer!

DSG (5799) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 25, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2010 [9/8/09] Bottle at Delirium Cafe in Brussels. Deep red color with a medium, quickly-diminishing, beige head. Aroma of yeast, cherries, apple notes, some other fruits, wood, some spiciness and caramel notes. Sourish fruity flavor with some cherries, a bit of yeast, some oak , malt sweetness, and mild spicy hoppiness towards the finish. Medium-bodied. Nice.

shrubber85 (7594) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Bottle. Sour cherry and horse blanket aroma. Cloudy ruby red color with minimal head. Light dry sour cherry flavor. Light body. Nice flavor for what’s there - could use a stronger flavor and fuller palate.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2009
(Bottled, BBE 2013) Hazy ruby red with a small, mostly fading, pink head. Pleasant, mildly tart aroma of cherry and strawberries and some sweet sugar. Sweetish and slightly acidic cherry flavor with mild, dry tartness in the finish. Light to medium body, slightly watery with medium carbonation. Not very sour at this point, maybe a more aged sample would be in order. Nevertheless, a decent - although quite thin - fruit beer.

anders37 (16691) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2009
Bottle @ Alvinne. Pours a clear ruby red color wit a small pinkish white head. Has a light malty fruity cherry and red fruit aroma. Fruity light malty slightly tart cherry and red berry flavor. Has a fruity cherry finish with some tart hints.

Lagunitasfan (1313) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 28, 2009
Stone Sourfest. Ruby red in the glass, with a fruit and vanilla smooth nose. Taste is smooth fruity with a dry finish. Bitter on the end.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 11/20
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.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
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 (7858) - 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.
