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.

2009 De Cam Kriek Lambiek paired with a bowl of cherries. Will this be cherry overkill? Let's find out! This lambic pours a deep mauve, kind of purple brown with a fuzzy pink head they vanished fast. The aroma is incredibly aceitic vinegar cherry with some acidity and barrel woodsiness. The taste is tart, oaky, nutty, cherry, vinegar, some sweetness and acidity with a dry finish. The fresh cherry sweetness, cuts through the vinegar by accentuates the acidic nature of the finish. I think I served it a tad too warm so I've got more chilling in the fridge or it may be at an odd moment in it's cella ring evolution. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle. Pours hazy cherry red with minimal head. The aroma is big cherries, acetic notes, leather, and barnyard. Big cherry flavor, pretty tasty with acetic notes, some sweetness and then a tart finish. Medium body, low carbonation, some biting acidity. Pretty solid.

At a tasting, many thanks, no head, murky dark plum like color, aroma of vinegar and leather with a fruity backbone, flavor is a melange of dark fruits with some funk. Quite mild and subdued but really enjoyable.

Pailhead (6377) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2016
Bottle: The aroma consists of big sour cherries and lemon. It’s pours deep reddish-brown with small pinkish head that fades to a minimal film outlined by a thick ring. The flavor starts a quick dose of moderate sweet cherry. The finish has mild lemon, funk, spice, and apple. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.
