adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Bottle picked up in Brugge and opened in my Munich hotel room my last night in Europe. Cloudy red appearance with a pinkish head. Tart cherry, somewhat acidic, lemon citrusy, a bit funky flavor. Somewhat sour, tangy cherry, moderately refreshing, tart lemon, light woody flavor. Pretty straight forward but fun to drink.

daje (2450) - NORWAY - SEP 1, 2014
Sample at Haand Festival 2014. Murky copper body with with a thin white layer on top. Aroma of tart cherries and raspberries, wood, sour berry taste sweetened with almonds, vanilla, mild saltness in finish. Acidic and fruity aftertaste.

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Authentic cherry beer made with actual fruit instead of the extracts and sugar overload one would expect. Loose, yellowish head and deep ruby red colour, hazy. Fruit acidity, obvious sour cherry, impressions of plum and redcurrant, caramel malt base, bit bready, spicy yeastiness, above average hop bitterness in the finish (for the style); in all, a fascinating play of bitter, sweet and sour, perhaps not completely coming together, but complex in any case.

Een bier met een heel uitgesproken smaak, maar het was niet echt mijn ding.

Palme (3365) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
On tap @ Haandfest 2014 as Kerasus 2014. A cool looking really amber purple colored one. No head to write home about. Smells tartish and I get lots of nice red sour fruity tones mixed with a good quality red wine vinegar. Some "grillkrydder" also. Smells nice. Quite sharp on the lemons this! Sour green apples detected immediately. Soft oily in the mouth and it’s really gentle on the carbonation bubbles. Actually quite good this, but a bit disturbing with the "grillkrydder" thing. Ends with traces of slightly sourned cherries and fruity strawberries. 24.05.2014

Pours a deep ruby red with a touch of haze and a thin veil of bubbles. Nose is musky cherry, earthy pit, basement funk,light vinegar and lots of vinous fruit. Palate is round and juicy with nice cherry fruit, dialed in sourness, layered funk, vinous acidity lingers. Nice beer !
