Dusty rose-amber with light (wood-aged), fine-bubbled, off-white head / Bright but complex nose of cherry, apple, wood, and brett / Light to medium body, tart and acidic, moderate wood astringency, dry with just a hint of sweetness, excellent balance and lightly bitter finish / Flavors of sour cherries, rotting apples, oak, hay, horse blanket, and a delightful hint of manure / A great, beautifully balanced, sour.

Garrold (4339) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle, by way of a trade. Hazy, orange copper colour. Dense, lasting, off white head. Nose has black cherry juice. Cherry stone. Soft brett. Touch of wet leather. Bit of dusty, cellar muddiness. Further to that there’s some plum and date. Plenty going on. Taste is dry, funky, stone fruit sour. Some stewed fruit bitterness. Mouthfeel is tangy, woody, and lightly sour. Bretty twang. Some light, cherry lip sweetness. Clean, bright, tangy mouthfeel. Soft acidity. Cherry stone, tangy bitter finish. Lovely stuff.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 1/16 bottle thanks to Mike. Pours a crystal clear deep amber color with no head. Very okay, heavy sweet cherry notes. Slightly oxidized. Very soft carbonation.

MarcoDL (4206) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2016
Bottle. Copper-ish color. Aroma of sour red fruit, malt, tart, mild vanilla and oak. Taste is quite sour, with red fruit, oak, brett tart, soft red grape, oak and some malt. Body is somewhat thin, finish is long and fruity. Nice, but a bit overrated.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2016
375 mL bottle. Not a pretty beer. Lotsa sour cherries in the nose. Red wine too. The flavour is a punch in the mouth, with no apologies. Lotsa cherries in the flavour too. Malt vinegar, red wine, brown sugar, medicine. Dry. Outstanding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mesjasz (1076) - Lodz, POLAND - AUG 28, 2016
Russian River Suplication - aromat dziki, bardzo rustykalny z lekkim wspomnieniem wiśni. Pachnie jak typowy lambik. Smak średnio kwaśny lekko octowy, wisniowy, agrestowy, cytrynowy, winny.

DocJitsu (1707) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2016 Tart nose, tart flavor. Seems a lot like a Granny Smith apple lying on the ground. Really don’t get the allure to people who enjoy drinking this.
