Bottle 37,5 cl. Poured slightly hazy red in color with a frothy pink head. Sour apple, tart, barnyard, sweet cherries and sugar on the nose. Intense and lovely aroma. Sour apples, acid, vinegar in flavour, but probably not so much flavour as one would expect. Later on the flavours grow on you, nice combination of tart, vinegar and light hints of cherries. Solid quality from Cantillon.

"at first, no evidence of cherries except on the label. musty horseblanket and lemons on the nose. flavor has sour and tart cherry, but little or no sweetness. nice fizzy dry feel. even though served at 48, it still became more complex as i drank (it started as a one trick pony and grew on me). still overpriced, but it was enjoyed.

AlainG (1247) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2014
Rouge vif à la mousse effervescente qui s’évanouit dans un beau spectacle pour disparaître entièrement. Ça sent les levures sauvages, avec des parfums bien fruités, acidulés et rustiques. Assez surprenant tellement c’est acidulé en bouche. La cerise surette est à l’honneur, alors que des particularités épicées, boisées et d’environnement d’étable complètent le tableau. Le liquide laisse toujours une couche de plus sur la langue. C’est une bière qu’on croque. (Embouteillée le 25 octobre 2013 Lot C123) (1240-160914)

Rich cherry red. Smell begins with sour funk and light horse blanket, as warms becomes more cherry driven. Taste is likewise with cherry driving sour flavour as warms. Mild acidity. Sherberty. Lovely kriek as it warms up. Good beer.

Smell was sour cherry. Taste was intense cherry with a nice lactic sourness to it. I was surprised at how good it was.

GothGargoyle (1291) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
Hazy reddish pink with a massive pink head. Aroma is cherries, sour cherries, funk, other red fruits. Medium bodied, thick mouthfeel, nicely sweet and tart on the palate. Taste is tart cherry pie, lots of cherries, red currants.

ruigo (1125) - PORTUGAL - SEP 18, 2014
37.5cl bottle. Hazy deep red colour with a fluffy pinkish head. Tart, yeast, oak, and fruit in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste starts very tart but then turns into a complexity complicated to describe with fruitiness, vinegar and sour notes. Dry finish. Overall, a surprising beer that opens a new world of flavours.

Klimaet (155) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark hazy red with a slightly pink big frothy head. Aromas of some tart cherries, slightly soapy (in a good way though), some wood and stale, some sweet fruity notes in the back. Subtle vinegar. Taste is pretty tart cherries up front, fruity soapy notes once again, some stale, vinegar and sweet ripe cherries in the back.
