TET (2631) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2013
A dark reddish brown beer without carbonation and without head. The nose of cherries, berries, medium sourness and balanced sweetness, some balsamico. Taste is medium sour, quite high sweetness, cherries, barrel and earthyness. Medium bodied, no carbonation, slightly sugary and sticky. Quite sweet and berry juice like sour ale, not totally convincing, not very sophisticated.

good, but not great. A bit too much vinegar happening in this one. all the flavor complexity, although detectable, is overwhelmed by the acetic acid. also had a notably odd "slippery" palette that almost felt like the whole sip was connected like mucus (this is NOT the case, just how my mind associated it, no roping or anything like that happening here...) a sub-par offering from an oft exceptional brewery.

rodenbach99 (4196) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2013
Bouteille cuvée 2010, #4786 meilleur avant l’année de ma mort soit 2050. Liquide près de la mare à canard sans mousse. Un nez acide, boisé, frais de par son acidité marqué, du caramel et des levures sauvages terminent la marche. En bouche le liquide surprend par son manque de corps, il manque de fond pour supporter cette masse acide. C’est vinaigré en titi. L’acide pique la bouche. Des amandes finissent par se laisser découvrir. Pas pour tous les palais et où sont les cerises. 6+

MatteoD. (137) - ITALY - JUN 17, 2013
Schiuma quasi inesistente, colore rosso opalescente, aroma acido, citrico, nota fruttata, al palato corpo medio e carbonazione nulla, note acetiche, acide, frutti rossi, dolcezza bilanciata da un finale acido e fruttato molto elegante, questa birra mi ha intrigato!

PotjeBier (2687) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2013
On tap @ Beer Temple (Del Ducato tap takeover). Dark red color, rather murky. No head. Aroma’s: cherries, almonds, tart, wood, with a light sweetness retronasal. Flavor is medium sour, cherries, hint of sweetness. Medium bodied. Enough carbonation. Almonds in the finish. Pretty good.

Marheb (4916) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Bue au mondial 2013: Très acide avec des tanins enrobants. En bouche pas très actif, fruité, moyennement sucré...de ce que je me souviens.

Une bouteille offerte par Kevin B. Thanks again! Numéro 4786. Cuvée 2010. Meilleure avant 2050. Une bière ambrée, sans vie et bien embrouillée. Un nez de fruits acides, d’amandes caramélisées, de fleurs microbiennes et de noix de coco. Des saveurs faiblement maltées qui sont dominées par des saveurs fruitées très aigres. Le fût contribue largement à cette sensation. Le chêne parfume les flaveurs. En bouche, un corps amorphe mais huileux. En finale, une attaque en règle des tissus de ma langue.

Pallieter85 (14) - BELGIUM - JUN 9, 2013
Pours red/amber with virtually no head, and the small had that appears disappears really fast (made me remind of really old beers when pouring). Aroma of sourness, a bit of sour cherries. Taste is mostly acidic, vinegar like, with a decent amount of sour cherries and some oakiness, not too exciting at all. Mouthfeel was horrible. This beer felt oily in the mouth, leaving a layer of oiliness which stayed for a while and then turned into something astringent. In the throat it felt like vinegar. Gave me a head ache for a good 2 hours. The sour cherries were there but still a lot of work on this one. Way overpriced at 10 euro for a small bottle.

Martinus (4495) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2013
Cuvee 2010
Clear caramel colour, slight white head. Quite sour aroma, fruity, citrus, cherry, reminding of Oud Bruin. Sour flavour, citric acid, acetic, lemon peel, wood. Quite dry. Light carbonation. Tart finish, wood, vanilla and lemon peel.
Very elegant.
(from 33cL bottle @ De Dag van de Kriek, Eizeringen)
