Leighton (11889) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Keg at the Cock Tavern, London. Pours hazy, deep red with a fine, creamy head. Nose of funky fruit, cherry, tangy berries. Light sweet flavor, very tart, with up front funk and tang, then background rich, dark cherries. Bit of lactic tang, strong acidity. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp and tart to finish, some cherry pit bitterness, funky cherries, lemon acidity. Pretty good. The fruit character becomes a bit jammier as the beer warms. Nice.

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.

Keg at Cocks Tavern. Very hazy (ahem) cherry coloured beer with a tidy pale pink head. Sour fruity yohgurt nose. Palate is crisp and dry. Tingling sourness, wine type of sourness not the vinegar type thank God. Tart sherbet cherry and other red fruits. More sherbet before the dry finish. Weird nose but I actually enjoyed the sherbet fruit on this one. A second one later on that same day proved a bit too much yoghurt. I think the trick with this one is to drink cold, it suppresses the yoghurt.

King William IV, Leyton. 3.7% - tasting cleaner now and sans the yohgurt which is good but also the sherbet which is a shame!

Svesse (6296) - 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.

shoulderbroken (2202) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 29, 2012
Keg at Old Coffee House. Kriek like appearance, small bubbly white pink head. Aroma sour cherry with slight stink, bit cakey, marzipan. Later on starts to smell of cider. Taste is nice, sour cherry, not quite belgian sourness, but pretty good. Maybe quite nectar like. Decent spritzy texture. Further down, bit lemon, maybe loses its way a little. Nice try, but not really there.

Theydon_Bois (9960) - The ’Sham, Surrey, 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!

tomer (1804) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - FEB 19, 2013
Cask @ at Old Coffee House, no head, hazy cherry red colour, vinous aroma with some vinegar and berries in the back, dominant flavour of sour cherries, quite sour but not too piercing. Nice and easy to sip.

77ships (4303) - 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.
