tomer (1877) - 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.

EdKing (2025) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2013
Keg in Old Coffee House. Murky yellowy red, medium white foamy head. Nose is minerally sour, cherry, acidic. Taste is lemon sour citrous with a bit of syrupy cherry, sour raspberry. Lemon citrous dominates. On the finish itís sour, bit of citric acid prickle and lemon sucking sour. Think it needs a bit more cherry fruit to work.

Theydon_Bois (10571) - 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!

teorn88 (3406) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2013
On tap at Brewdog Shoreditch. It pours a clear light ruby colour with virtually no head and only a thin ring of pinkish bubbles on the side of the glass. Aroma is extremely vinegarish, almost in Rodenbach style but in a bad way. Too harsh at the beginning. As the base beer, though, this ones opens up after some time and becomes more fruity and pleasant in the nose as well. Taste is a bit bland with good acidity, not overpowering as the base beer, and some red berry notes. But no depth of flavors in this one. Body is thin with good carbonation. Overall, decent but lacks balance and complexity.

Svesse (6634) - Hšsselby, 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 (2379) - 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.

Papsoe (25076) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2012
On tap. Pours a beautiful - if hazy - warm red with a tiny pinkish head. Fairly discreet fruit aroma, strangely indefinable with no particular distinctive cherry character, a very subdued tartness. Light body, the cherries get more pronounced now and so does the tartness - actually this gets distinctly sour, bordering astringent. This isnít as fresh and quaffable as the peach version. 111112

Keg at brewdog Bristol (4%) lactic custard and cherry drops on the nose. Hazy scarlet with white lacing. Tart in the mouth, cider vinegar, cherry stones, long sharp finish. More lacto.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2013 6th December 2012
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.

21st January 2013
King William IV, Leyton. 3.7% - tasting cleaner now and sans the yohgurt which is good but also the sherbet which is a shame!
