Theydon_Bois (12736) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Tap at the Old Coffee House, thanks to Jan for the pour, 18/01/13. Obscured crimson with a thin off white head that clears to a light film. Nose is sour cherry but very light in this respect, hint of piss, musty dank tones. Taste comprises lightly soured cherry, light sugars, berry fruit. Medium bodied with light carbonation, mildly tarte in the finish. Ok and drinkable but not sour enough!

Christian (11786) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2012
Tap take-over at Mikkeller Bar. Cloudy red with a small white head. Aroma of red berries and diacetyl. Dry and tart cherry flavour, a bit thin, with diacetyl

Scopey (9033) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2012 Keg at the Evening Star Brighton. It pours cloudy red with a medium pink-white head. The nose is creamy, fresh cherry, lactic, wet leaf and butter. The taste is dark cherry, lip-smacking sourness, lactic acid, cherry pip and red berry yoghurt with a long, sour finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and high level of sourness. The diacetyl on the nose is off-putting, however the taste makes up for it.

JorisPPattyn (8439) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2015
No head; flamingo to pale cyclamen red, clear beer, no carbonation visible. Liquorice, toasted waffles; fruit only as a faint aroma, or fruitdrink as Hero. Sweetish, bit dull, until the finish where fruitacids finally appear. Aromacomponents, including retronasal are terribly lacking. Very light, obviously. MF doesn’t give any carbonation either. I hoped for far better, seen the name.

Borup (7899) - Albertslund, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2012
Draught at Mikkeller Bar. Reddish colour with a very small white head. Aroma and flavour of wheat and cherries.

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2015
Draft @ ACBF 2015. De couleur rougeâtre, col fin blanc. Arôme donne de suite le ton avec un côté cerise qui semble surfait et contraste avec le côté aigrelet qui caractérise une Berliner. Palais est diminué par ce fruité qui me donne à penser à un sirop pour la toux au profil fruité-cerise trop sucré. Cela diminue le caractère aigrelet de ce style. Retrouve cependant cette impression de sour mash en fin de bouche pour une effervescence qui est haute.

Svesse (6926) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2013
(Draught at King William IV, Leyton, London, 22 Nov 2012) Hazy red colour with foamy, white head. Fruity, sour nose with notes of cherries, red fruit and a fairly fresh acidity. Fruity, tart taste with cherries, red fruit and a dry, fresh acidity in the finish. Light body, quite dry and tart. Low bitterness. A bit weird, but quite drinkable and refreshing. Nice one.

7/III/15 - on tap @ ACBF 2015 (Vichte) - BB: n/a (2015-324) Thanks to all for sharing today’s beers!

Clear pale red to pinkish beer, small aery pink head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of butter, diacetyl, sweet, bit sugary, more diacetyl, fruity touch. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: sourish, buttery, weird, bit off, sweet. Aftertaste: fruity, cherries, diacetyl, yoghurt. Nope, this is not good at all. Did anyone taste this stuff? How did they think they’d get away with this?

jackl (5804) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Keg @ The Cock Tavern. The pour’s medium hazy red with a tiny white head. The nose is sharp acetic lemon juice, bright sugar, soft fruit and malevolent buggy aromas. The taste is very tart, sour cherry and lemon rind. Hints of sweet sugar and marshmallow. Pissy wheat tang on the finish. Light body, refreshing. Overall, nice, if basic.

77ships (5411) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 7, 2012
Slightly above 1/3 of a pint draft @ Brewdog as part of a sampler. Very bright lovely cherry red, only some fungus looking slits for head. Nose is lightly acidic sour, almost medicinal sourness, red chewy candy, some sewage water, lacto and light gummy beers. Taste is a light cherry sourness mixed with some lemon, light acidity mixed sewage water, light lactic leading up to a bitter finish, floral, herbal, candy. Lighter carb. slightly sticky. Okay but not exactly what it should be.
