4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from 06/2011.
Shared with my wife after dinner.
Both of our observations. (c) if only I noticed, and (a) if only she:
Aroma: Cherry, cherry pit, brett funk-(c), lemon citric.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light body, carbonation and astringency. (a) a little too "watery".
Flavor: Tart, Cherry Pits, a bit more bitter than others I’ve had of the style. strong cherry pit/hop/brett bitter aftertast, light "beer" malty flavor that fades as you drink-(a).
Overall. Really enjoyable. Refreshing, reasonably complex, not a terribly "difficult" drink for someone unfamiliar with the style.

Pours a deep indigo tinged crimson with fluffy scarlet head. Fairly sour with dry lactic acid and some ripe manure on the nose. Medium-high carbonation, raspberry balsamic, plenty of sour acid character, some cherry stone, fairly dry yet zippy finish

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
A decent cherry sour beer with lambic added. Has that bitter aftertaste that I'm not crazy about. Pours a deep red with very little head. Doesn't have the sweetness you'd expect from something blended with lambic

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, brought and shared by Jeff. Lovely pink hue with a pink-tinged crown. Aroma is sour and lightly herbal. Flavours of sour cherries, with woody and herbal nuances, and a light yoghurty acidity. Nice balance here, although a bit more cherry character and perhaps a bit of spiciness would have been welcome. Still, very enjoyable.

Bottle bought in the Belgium order
