patrickfannon (1242) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Bottle. 25.4 oz. (Vintage 2009) Split with James and Dallas. Pours an electric, turbid mahagony amber with a thin, lacy white head. Aroma of fresh ripe, juicy cherries, Luden’s cough drops, and a hint of funk and lemon zest. Medium boided with a full, heavy, sticky-sweet palate. Something very unsual and pleasant about the mouthfeel of this sour; a robustness balances out the extreme tart. Finishes with an expectedly sour bite. Fantastic sour.

brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - JUL 4, 2010
750mL bottle. Pours a cloudy reddish brown. Aroma has a ton a of mildly tart fresh cherries, sweet citrus, and a bit of oak. Taste has lots of cherry peel, tart cherry fruit, and very strong acidity. Disappointing absence of funk. Finish has a lot of cherry peel with some lemon peel bitterness.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Bottle from Capones. Make sure you have your Rolaids on hand before you drink this one. This is some sour, acidic stuff. Pours a hazy orange brown with a light tan head. I don’t get too much cherry on the nose, but it does has lots of tropical fruit. Funky with a bit of coconut. Very very tart, almost vinegary. Dry, with light cherry. Sourness lingers on the tongue for a long time. I liked the Apricot better.

bleeng (1595) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2010 750 ml 2009 bottling. Cork pops open vigorously. Dark ruby red and hazy. Huge cherry/lactic/sour nose. Small head dissipates fast. Serious sourness/tartness, lots of cherries, mouth puckering. Fluffy and effervescent. Taste goes with you all the way down. Delicious. Can’t drink this one fast enough.

Pours a very nice red-tinted brown color. Aromas of cherry and oak dominate, with some lactic sour present too with the slightest hint of acetic. Pretty highly carbonated. The taste brings cherry and plumb, with a nice tartness and just a little vinegar to follow with a bubbly earthy finish. Drinks very nicely

Bottle from 5 points. Wow was I suprised at this one. This is one delicious brew. Tart, sweet, fruity, and oaky. Perfect.
