Footed tulip poured draft at the brewpub (Munster, IN). Pours an almost blood red pour, a bit hazy, with big tannish red head that laces well sticks around throughly. Aromas are tart cherries, a good portion of oak and dryness, green apples, light malty sweetness. Tart, light sweetness. Initial is subtle sour cherries and fruit moving into smoothed out sweet malts, dry and oaky a good portion, green apple and cherry fruits, tart take a good portion but are smoothed out instead of sour dominant. Still, an impressive sour for the sessionability, doesn’t lose focus just prefers to be lighter fare. Finishes dry and tart. Cheers.

CASH CUB ! This is like a fruit beer without the fruit, but does seem to taste of fruit. Does that make sense? Its sour and stinks of it on opening but it doesnt overpower you on drinking. Its small and goes down easy and definitely creaks of Kriek. Its a pleasure to look at, and is an all round nice sour, but lets face it, this aint a Rodenbach Grand Cru. Tidy beer though for the price

Clear red brown with a lasting off-white head. Brown sugar and molasses dominate the aroma, with some cherry notes. Dry and slightly tart fruity flavour, with a hint of oak.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUN 6, 2009
On tap at Three Floyds, served in a tulip. Dark brown pour with some reddish hues and a thin head of tan foam. Not really any lacing. The aroma had sour cherries, candy apple, and some light wood and vinegar. The flavor was also woody and had a prominent note of sour cherries. Lightly sour, but plenty sweet as well. The mouthfeel was light-bodied and had light carbonation. Slightly aggressive on the tongue. Pretty mild, but not bad.

Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk.
[thanks to Skou for bringing this home]
Pours a great, chestnut red-brown with a fine, off-white, creamy head. Sweet caramel aroma, light funk, some raspberries, barnyard and cherries. Medium carbonation, a tad watery. Flavour is limited, some caramel sweetness (especially in the start and the aftertaste). In between, there are light tart notes of raisins and cherries. A good-looking, Goudenband light.

From Delirium in Brussels, forgot to note if it was draft or bottle - Pours dark amber with a thin off-white head. The aroma is of cherries and wild yeast funk. It has a sweet taste with plenty of cherries and some funky flavors in the background. It’s medium bodied and has no apparent bitterness even in the finish, but avoids being cloying as some sourness kicks in at the right time.
