4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
BCTC - fresh bottle being poured by the Shelton Bros table. Pours a murky red with orange tints. Small head. Aroma is wham! in your face tart sour cherry. So damn sour and so nice. Taste is so acidic (even Cantillon-esque) and full of over soured cherry. Aftertaste is long and sour and did i mention acidic. This was the biggest surprise of the fest for me. It sure tricked me into thinking this is straight Kriek and not a fruit beer.

Horseblanket, leather, cobweb, cherry ash - quite some aroma there. Cloudy red, pink head. Horseblanket and the other notes find themselves in the mouth as well, good sourness. Sparkly mouthfeel. Dry finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 at the Seattle International Beerfest. Huge sour cherry nose. Gorgeous deep pinkish red body, thin pink head of mousse and fizz. Super oxidized nose--tart, sour, sharp, dry. Fizzy sharp strong attack. Ultra ultra funky on the nost and palate. Sticky sour mid-palate and finish. Definitely a celebration of oxidized red fruit and wild yeast funk.

Deep cherry red in colour, light pink coloured head, average retention, very light lacing. The aroma is acidic, very strong cherries, lambic-like, vinegar notes. The flavour is quite tart and acidic, lots of cherries, some balsamic vinegar, woody. Mildly sour mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes medium length, lots of cherry tartness, acidic. More lambic-like then I thought it would be, quite dry, wonderful balance.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2008 Spontanious weekend 07. Shared with pat. Notes say: i had to shake the over carbonation out a bit. Kriek, oud brune base, very drinkable balanced sourness, a bit chalky which was unusual but something id like to try again. This finished me off also. RERATE: Bottle from paisley beer fest. Man o man, the mix of girardain lambic and oud brune are amazing, the cherrys character is almost unnoticeable which i dont mind. Soo drinkable soo much going on, its soo funky. Amazing beer one of the best iv ever had forsure. Possibly up with the sourest too.
