reebtogi (5593) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 4, 2015
750ml corked bottle pours a reddish brown color with a finger of pinkish head that retains well and leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is cherries and funk. Taste is very sour with a cherry tartness and fruity sweetness. Light to medium bodied with abundant carbonation. Overall, this is one big sour beast, just like sucking on a whole lemon per sip.

jc1762 (643) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Poured into a plastic cup showing dark copper, translucent rims, and an opaque center. The nose shows a very strong oak background with notes of bing cherries. The palate is highly carbonated and full bodied. Strong oak background on the palate with big flavors of sour cherries. A light to moderately intense grassiness appears on the finish and the linger. Personally for my tastes there’s a bit too much oak that does not harmonize with the fruit flavors.

Taster at the brewery. Deep cherry red with a pink head and lacing. Aromas of tart cherries with a generous amount of funk. Taste is similar, with sour cherry, tartness and funk creating a puckering sip. Medium body and carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a tart finish.

Jultsu (713) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2015
Ruskeahkon punertava, kotikaljamainen olomuoto, niukka vaahto joka häipyy nopeasti reunoille ja pois. Tuoksussa hienoista makeutta, kriekkimäiseen tapaan. Samettisen hapokas, kirpeä omenainen ensipuraisu joka muuttuu makean imelään kirsikkaan. Kuin vihreää kirpeää omenaa söisi. Hyväähän tämä silti.

lusikka (7681) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2015
750 ml bottle @ ISKTR V. Pours a dark ruby amber colour with a small head. Aroma of dark cherries, syrupy sweetness and some wooden notes. Flavour of dark cherries, rather heavy sourness, heavy earthiness, sour worms, yeastiness, some spiciness and leather. Medium bodied. Sourness burns a bit too much here. Good.

olio (9210) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2015
75 cl bottle @ ISKTR V.
Pours clear dark mahogany color with a small head. Sourish fruits on the nose with sweet ripe fruits and caramel, some wooden notes too. Quite tart flavor, some wooden notes, cherries, ripe fruit notes and mild spices. I like the tartness here. Very good.
