4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2009 Bottle from Ohtsuki. Dark red purple colour. Small pink bubbly head which disappears pretty quickly with a fizzing aroma, Looking forward to pouring the next glass and hearing that again. Aroma is lovely, nice cherries, perfume like, lots of fruit, leathery maybe, and a bit of wood. Taste is great, lots of cherry fruitiness, initially sharp and sour, but the fruitiness soon overtakes. Finish is long and lingering and seems to switch between fruit and sourness. Seems quite oily in the mouth and the carbonation burns off very quickly. Very dry. Really interesting. Really nice.

Bottle, 0.75l, courtesy of Bongtribe, shared with Luka. Pours cloudy ruby color with thin totally diminishing off-white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of sour cherry, red currant, must and wood. Taste starts with tart cherry, follows musty and funky with crisp and dry mouthfeel. Light to medium body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Another gem...

Bottle at bar shared with Meilby. Pours a very nice red with a slight pink head. Aromas of light cherries, champagne and purple grapes. Tastes sour and sweet, medium to full body, lively carbonation. Good, but I’m still getting used to how a balanced sour beer should be interpreted.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared. Rudby red color with no head at all. Nose is fresh tart cherries but gets disturbed by a burnt ruber note that really bothers me. Flavour is a simple light tartness, red berries, jam, bit of apple peel. Very low carb and super easy to drink.
