Habanero (2624) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy amber small, lacing, off-white head. Aroma of red grapes, caramel, sour cherries and wood. Sweet flavor that ends up quite dry and tart. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A very nice Sour.

beer_est_deus (670) - örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2014
Oklar brun + lite orange med ett extremt litet skum. Doft: Körsbärs likör, färska bigarråer, fat, cognac, våt jord,,alkohol, syrlig brett, gräddkola, lite rengöringsmedel. Smak: Jord, fat, körsbärs likör, malt, alkohol, brett, jordgubbs fil, ljung, söt vinäger. Hade önskat mindre kärn och mer färsk frukt i doft och smak. Lite risifrutti körsbär i eftersmaken. En öl som definitivt växer medans man dricker.

Timvim (90) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle @ home 20140516 Really muddy reddish brown. No head, sparse carbonation. Aroma of cherry, some bretty tones, a little acid, prunes. Taste: Cherry, oak, light sourness that is quite sharp at the back of the tongue. Soft mouthfeel, some residual sweetness. Interesting, but not very drinkable. Not worth 75 SEK. Perhaps the most ugly beer I have seen.

Stizz19 (60) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2014
Had this at the Freakin frog in las vegas (best experience at a bar i've ever had). At $52/bottle it was not cheap. Pours a murky red color with a brownish/white head. Smells like sour cherries and other tart fruits. The taste is exquisite, nice tart cherry taste with some bitterness at the end. The best sour lambic style beer I've ever had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
Dégustée (bouteille) le 1er juin 2013 au Mondial de la Bière 2013 à Montréal (D16C4KPPEe). Bière brune tirant sur le roux. Aucun col. Peu effervescente, bulles fines. Légère odeur de cerises. Très douce, peu sucrée, peu amère. Très très aigre au point d’être désagréable, donne l’impression de boire du vinaigre aux cerises. Beaucoup trop aigre, ce n’est vraiment pas mon genre de bière, verre de dégustation jeté à moitié plein.
