3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle from De Bierkoning in Amsterdam. Pours a cloudy amber-red colored body with a thin, fizzy, tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is dry, tart cherries with a good amount of wood, a light malty sweetness, some acidity, and a light funk. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened cherries up front before some funk and a good amount of tartness comes in. Woody and slightly acidic before this finishes dry, tart, lightly bitter, and fairly fruity before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Light, smooth body and a somewhat active, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty tasty sour. Fairly straightforward, but dry and balanced with a nice tartness and woody cherry element. Good beer.

33 cl bottle @ olio, bottled 01.06.2012, BBE 01.06.2022
Aroma is sour with woody notes, some cherries and urinal cake. Flavour is rather tart and sour with woody notes, vinegar and green apples. Palate is very low on CO2, which makes this feel like very sour juice. Sweet and sour, which is not the combination I like.
