THE Others tasting. Thanks again to Bruce for pulling out another scarce one. Slight haze on this dark red beer, residual apricot coloured head! Palate is light, semi dry and crispy. Nice Duchesse Du Bourgogne vibe here - with added tangy cherry! All right!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Blood red pour with a white head. Big cherry aroma of fruit flesh and skins. Sweet fruits, a touch of grass, and a light lactic tartness. Maybe a hint of vinegar. The flavor has a good fruit/cherry sweetness and lots of cherry skin character. Some oak, a bit of grass, and a bit of lemon juice.

Bottle at The Others Tasting, London - big thanks to Bruce for bringing this back from his travels. Pours dark, blood red with a fine, pink foam head - looks rather fetching. Sweaty cherry nose, good and funky. Medium sweet flavor with bitter cherry pits, good funk, some jammy berries, highly acetic. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Tangy finish, funky and acetic, more tart cherry and bitter pits. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2013 Bottle... Murky blood-red ale with a tiny, creamy, pink head. The aroma consists of fruity black cherries, caramel, red wine and a mild note of ethanol. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor offers fruity black cherries, tart sour cherries and a modest measure of ethanol. Finishes fruity and lightly boozy. No real oak component here. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

Courtesy of dschiller. It pours opaque copper with gold hues and supporting a tan head of foam. The aroma is vinegar, passion fruit and earthiness. The taste starts off with a strong puckering tartness and vinegar slightly sweetened up by sugary maltiness. It then quickly flows into a tart cherry note. It ends with the addition of a pleasing peppery earthiness in the background that really works for me.
