shoulderbroken (2160) - Tokyo, - NOV 23, 2013
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.

Awesome Kriek. Pours ruby red with low carb. Aroma is lambic funk, dusty basement, jammy cherries, and wet oak. Taste is heavy tartness and light fruity sweetness with solid wet wood funk. I dig it.

750, brought back from belgium. Yup awesome, tons of cherry flavors, tart, funcky, barnyard, horseblanket. Whatever you beer geeks call gueuze flavors is that, it tastes like a good gueuze. Descriptive enough for ya?

mR_fr0g (3666) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle shared at the RBESG 2014, grand tasting 09/08/2014 Moncada Brewery. Lovely pink / purple coloured pour with a small pink head. Aroma is tart fruit, rubber, musty and a splash of vinegar. Flavour is tart fruit, vinegar, sharp acid and horse funk. Palate is tart, drying tanin. Super dry finish. Lingering grassy note with tart cherry.

MrHangover (2664) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear pink beer without any head on top. Aroma has Brett, oak, red fruits. Flavor is very dry, fruity, light sour and loads of oak in there. Has a dry finish, low carbonation and a great balance.

aleigator (265) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2014
Has no head at all, cloudy, with a very saturated burgundy color. Nose is full of sunbathed, joung cherries, just before they turn ripe, with only hints of acidity. Lower carbonation brings out the fruit very well, without adding distracting metallic hints. Begins with sour, unripe cherries, tickeling the tip of the tongue, supported by a leathery tartness, helping to put the fruits even more into the spotlight. The sourness enhances while the beer warms up, resulting in an uncomprimising tartness, in which cherry notes shine through at a later stage, after the palate has been adjusted to the acidity. Gets a little sweeter in the end, adding a lovely complexity to the fruit, the cherries seem to mature during the drinking process.

Small sample from bottle at Camping Ratebeer ’14. Pours hazy dark red with almost no head. Aroma is a bit sweet with cherries, a little bit of tartness and red fruits. Taste is medium sour with some sweetness, cherries and a dry finish. Light body, medium carbo. Nice stuff.

teddybeer (2289) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 24, 2014
Reddish color with a minimal off-white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma with notes of cherries with acidic sensation. Flavor is strong acidic, fruity notes dominating cherries and some citrus. Very acidic final with a good presence on the mouth. Very enjoyable.
