from Erzbierschof - cloudy reddish-brown beer with a fast disappearing foam; a Rodenbach-like nose ! Sour cherries, vinegar, plums, notes of Amaretto and wood; full-bodied, solidly sourish, subtle and lively carbonation; very dry and sour finish, long cherryish notes with hints of prunes, Amaretto and berries - Jvar was right (of course): it’s a huge beer !

Tap. Pours murky almost-red, not much head to speak of. Huge tart cherry nose, oak, brett funk and vinegar. Wet wood, cherry pie, yogurt, lactic notes, refreshing dry finish. World class.

Aroma of cherry and ... Funk...the appearance is a disaster, looks like dish water, or worse... Ouch
Luckily it tastes better, not very beer like.., not fresh as a creik, but in that direction, but heavy somehow. Sour, sweet, long finish.. Not bad but not great

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice red color with nearly no head from tap. Aroma is vinegar sour. Taste is very intensely sour. There is hints of cherry and a tiny bit of fruit. The sourness is dull but intense. Very light carbanation and an apple juicy thickness... just a bit thick but a bit watery too

A burgundy red ale with a very thin white head. In aroma, pleasant sour cherry, with light lactic acid, berries, candy sugar, very nice and soothing. In mouth, a nice mix of sweet and sour cherries, light butter, puckering yet delicious... Mamamia!!! On tap at Common Market South.

At Borefts 2014. Together with Blackthorn, my favourite sour from the festival (appart from Tilquin & Cantillon). Pours hazy red. Lots of berries in the aroma, strong tarty, red berryflavour.
