Draught. Pours a reddish color with a moderate pink head on there. Nose is sour with a lot of cherry to it, and that’s not a flavor I particularly care for. Taste is sour and with a lot of cherry. Not a huge fan of this.

Sarlacc83 (1595) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 4, 2015
Bottle. November 2010 bottle date. A: Red color with a firm white head. Lacing. N: Cherry, grapefruit, lemon rind, a bit of rubber, some white peppercorn, musty attics, and the lightest touch of funk. T: Quite tart, but not acidic. Light fruity sweetness. M: Light, effervescent carbonation, no alcohol. O: Delicious kriek. The base lambic shows up as do the cherries.

kapusil (961) - HUNGARY - AUG 26, 2015
0.375l bottle. Vintage 2014. Hazy bright red body, huge pink head that disappears quickly. Aroma of balsamic vinegar, sour cherry, lemon zest with some earthy notes. Taste of lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, cherries and huge amount of funkiness with a slight amount of hop bitterness. Quite complex beer. I would even say it’s weird but in a good way.

Cristobal37 (536) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 26, 2015
2014 bottle Very astringent strong aroma. Old yeast and damp. Reminded of stinky cheese in that it smells like hell, but tastes quite nice. Immediate bite and a vinegar-like bitterness. Not a lot of cherries, though they are present a bit under the classic gueze flavor. Lemon rind, lambic tart, sour cherry. Not a fruity beer. Funky and well worth a try, but certainly not for the everyday. Thanks for sharing @kapusil!

jc1762 (476) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2015
Poured into a taster showing very cloudy pink with translucent rims. The nose shows a lot of brett with a lot of sour cherry notes in between. The palate is light bodied and well carbonated. Flavors of light oak, sour cherries, and the distinctive bretty tart notes. The finish shows the same tart notes and throughout the linger.

Gurthnar (4099) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 18, 2015
2015 bottle. Aroma old socks, basementy... unfortunately. I do not get much else. Charming red colour. Taste is very very sour, coating and puckering whole mouth. Some basementy flavour, socks, rather light cherry. I suspect this gets much better after some ageing.
