douglas88 (8396) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 22, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2012 2007 Bottle bought at Sams in Chicago. I learned something from this beer, that only about 1/10 people are able to drink this type of beer, and drinking a 750 yourself is not easy. Pours a clear cherry red color with no head. The aroma is pure sourness. The taste was very acidic, almost a burning mouthfeel. After a while the cherries come through quite nice, some dryness in the finish. A very sour beer. Ra-rate: obviously now my palate is more accustomed to the sourness. Very tart though. Woody. Tasty.

On tap at Ma Che Siete Venuti a F in Rome on 7/6. Pours clear pinkish read with minimal head. Strong aroma of tart cherries. Flavor is very similar. Very sour, but extremely well done.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2011 A fairly assertive beer. Pours cheery red with a little head. Aroma of tart cherries and background funk. The flavour is also sour, real cherries, very dry.

piscator34 (2341) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 12, 2008
Bottled sample. Clear red in colour with somewhat spritzy carbonation. Aromas of funk. lemon, and mild cherry. Loads more sour citrus, funk, and wood, along with more mild cherry. Beautiful tart and dry finish. Not even a hint of residual sweetness. Great stuff!

Pours a pinkish red, nice bubbles. Very nice sour flavor, bitter, and some cherry. Incredibly sour...very nice.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Poured from a 750ml corked bottle (Aug. 28, 2007 bottling date) and served in a tumbler. This beer poured a light pinkish red with a tiny, short-lived head of pink hued/off-white fizzy bubbles. Minimal lacing. The aroma of the beer was made up of sour cherry skins and funk. Sweet, fruity smell while still coming across as higly acidic. The flavor was crisp and acidic/sour on the tongue with a sweet, sugary cherry finish. Very sour but not overwhelmingly dry or acidic. The fruit lends a nice, lasting sweetness. The mouthfeel was light-bodied with light carbonation. The fruit takes the front seat in this lambic, but it still packs a nice sour/funky punch. Young but tasty.

14/9/6 bottle/7/8 taste. Looks: Cranberry Juice, with bubbles edging the glass. Aroma: Sour, musty, earthy yeast. Sweet muscadine. Taste: Sour, bitter, cheese, cherry. Very complex and dry. Low alcohol allows finish to hang around. Earthy. Intense. Wine. vinegar.

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 29, 2008
Green bottle from The Lighthouse in Manchester. Pours a slightly hazy bright red with a thin film of pink head. Smells fruity and acidic with hints of malt. Tastes initially sweet and fruity, slightly malty, and very sour. Pretty light in body, fairly aqueous, and light in carbonation. Takes a little getting used to, but after a few sips, brilliantly sour, subtly complex, and very enjoyable indeed. Im hooked.
