kraddel (3616) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - NOV 2, 2012
bottle at home. pours blonde/red and is as flat as a paper. i did NOT see that coming ! smells like old cherries, but just a bit. taste is flat, hint of sourness, hint of cherries. drinkable like some fruitjuice, but not overwhelmingly much taste. still nice though. but i’d say a bit too wattery for a beer ( no carbo, taste are onley hints of.. ) i think if this were a every-where available beer many people would be drunk before they’d realize it

Sample at Haand Festival 2012. Hazy dark red body, small offwhite head. Aroma of cherries, leather, citrus fruit. Taste of cherries and apples, with a light malt presence. Good dry body, lasting good sour aftertaste.

HenryXXX (201) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
The beer pours a rusty red brown with no head. The nose has a tart cherry smell with hints of grapes and red fruit. The palette taste like a Flanders brown with a sour cherry flavor. And has a lite tobacco flavor and tannic cherry finish.

GothGargoyle (1420) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
Pours a golden red with absolutely no head or sign of carbonation. Aroma is barnyard funk, cherries, hint of leather and fig. Smooth on the palate, perfect balance of sweet and sour. Taste is sour black cherries, red currants, fig, cranberry. Delicious.

brokensail (11550) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Almost flat amber pour with minimal bubbles. Plenty of cherry aroma, a moderate sourness, some light malt sweetness, and a hint of red wine vinegar. Hints of grass, a bit of leather, and maybe some balsamic notes. The cherry flavor is a bit less impressive than the aroma. Plenty of balsamic and red wine vinegar notes, oak, grass, and a light tannic quality.

77ships (4297) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2012
33 cl. bottle shared with Belgbeergeek & Vincent @ hotel room. Opaque red amber with almost no head. Smells like sweet tart cherries, medium vinegar, berries, light clean wood, defiantly way more cleared out than the original. Sour lightly tart cherries with some sweeter cherries blended in, light malt, tad vinegar, touch spices, light wood, minor touch herb. Way better than the regular, the cherries have not only cleared it out a bit but appear to complete the beer - like they always should have been there. Quite neat stuff.
