fyb (23) - SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2015
Semi-hazy red with a frothy, light-pink head that quickly subsides to a thin layer. The aroma is funky, fruity, red berries, cherry, hay. Taste is slightly funky, slightly sour, slightly sweet with cherry, red berries, lemon, light malts. Short, dry and slightly bitter finish. Medium body, medium carbonation. It’s a good one, but kind of anonymous.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Tasted on 3/13/15 from a corked and caged 375mL bottle, big thanks to Churney for picking this one up. Pours very dark, almost blood red with a thick pink head that slowly recedes to thick, messy lace. The nose is fresh cherry juice, some light baking spice, and pie crust malt, with light funk. The flavor is lightly sweet cherry with nice tart and funk balance, moving to light spice and malt. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long tart funky cherry finish.

jdjuice (389) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - MAR 11, 2015
Pours vibrant red with nice white head. Aroma is fresh sour cherries, slight breadiness reminiscent of cherry pie. Flavors are again very fresh sour cherries, light, very mild sweetness, very refreshing yet delicate.

JulienHuxley (3782) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle, 2012 vintage. Pours a red pour with an orange-y copper glow and thick pinkish head. Aroma is fruity, nice cherry aroma, dusty, very light but perceptible acetic notes, nice mellow wet hay, pretty characteristic old kriek aroma. Taste is sweet, still quite fruity, cherries are brighter here than in the aroma, rather light acidity. Palate is light bodied, a bit watery perhaps, with soft carbonation. Decent.

BeerandBlues2 (10442) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle in the hotel from Beer Planet. Pours clear ruby with a medium, fizzy pink head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is wet and dank oak, cherries, sweet malt, stale earthy hops, and light mold notes. Flavor is lightly tart and acidic cherries, oak, light mold and cellar notes, sweet malt notes underneath and a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

ksiwzos (80) - GREECE - DEC 15, 2014
375ml bottle from Belgian e-shop Dark red color, a bit hazy with off white-pink head. Aroma of cherries, tartness and diacetyl. Diacetyl is very nice contribution and combo, but I don’t know if it’s a conscious choice. Taste is the same, some diacetyl and cherries, funky notes and quite refreshing. Very dry, has notes of acetic acid but very positively. Tart aftertaste some not ripe fruits. Medium boy, high carbonation, beautiful brew.

375ml bottle at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki, courtesy of skullgeorge. Dark amber color with off white head. Funky fruity aroma, cherry, light dusty barnyard notes. Sweet and light sour dry taste like the aroma. Medium thin to oily body with soft carbonation.
