King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - APR 27, 2015
Dark red brown clearish color with little fine pored foam. Light sour smell, without a strong character. Sour grapy cherry fruity flavors with a little sour bite in the swallow. A bit sweet. Dry sour finish. Great beer.

SinH4 (3194) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 27, 2015
Hazy red color with small head, but beautiful lacing. Sweet-sour cherry flavour, wood, nice funk. Taste is strong, cherries, wood, sour, great balance, low carbonation, just a little tickle on the tongue. Warming finish.

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 24, 2015
Bottled 375ml (vintage 2012, Tuulensuu)
Murky, amber-pinky-brown color, tiny off-white head. Intensive sweet cherry, bretta, rose berry aroma. Medium-bodied, liquerish palate. Tart, cherries/Kirschberry in the flavor. Hints of cherry stones and wood. Lingering fruity tartness. Very fruity, balanced and drinkable wild beer. Deliciously fruity.

ClarkVV (5862) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 7, 2015
Draught at Lord Hobo, 3/19/15
A slightly hazy amber beer with some darker auburn tints to it and a small, off-white head that is poorly retained.
Vigorously acetic in the nose, with light alcohol heat notable on the end, as well. Fruity and playful, certainly, with cherries and plentiful caramel and raisin-like malt notes joining in the mix. Good leathery funk to it as well and overall appropriate for a sour red, though the aggressive acetic notes coupled with the strong caramel malt-like presence makes me nervous for the flavor.
An explosion of very sour vinegar notes, full of dry leather, wood and cherry skin is quickly combated by residual sugars lending a strong caramel/toffee flavor. Tart cherries and raisins enter the mix, throw some alcohol in there too and voila! you have quite a rollercoaster ride of a beer. Carbonation is low, but fairly engaging, while the sugars and slippery acetic notes give the beer a very soft texture. I like the core sourness here and you can taste the cherries, which I think are the best part, but the sweetness and monotonous acetic sourness bludgeon the palate until, taken with the 8% abv, it’s just way too much by the third or fourth sip.

Peter_L (1244) - SWEDEN - APR 5, 2015
Flaska @ god vän, tack Frode. Smutsbrunröd vätska utan nämnvärt skum. Syrlig, bärig doft av körsbär och tydliga fattoner av ek. Inledande smörklick i smaken som gör att njutningen tvärdör. Syrlig endimensionell smak utan något annat. Här händer det inte mycket.
