CraftBeerNick (1538) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Tap at La Fleur, Brussels, 28th January 16. Attractive dark pink, red, flat beer, served in a small glass tankard. Aroma is cherry, slight sour, cherry stone and boiled sweet. Taste is delicious musty cherry, some sourness, tart, but also sweet, no carbonation, base lambic comes through. Very drinkable

Garrold (3364) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2016
Glass at La Fleur en Papier Doré, Brussels. I think from a bag in a box. Hazy, dark cherry red. No head. Nose is musty, ripe cherry. Earthy cherry stone. If someone said there was strawberry in here, I’d easily believe it. Taste is dry, and lightly sour. Dry mouthfeel. Light acidity. Finishes all of that, with a soft sweetness developing as the beer opens up. Perfect beer for the setting.

Nocturne (1462) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2015
Tap at In de Wildeman, Amsterdam. Slightly dark red. Small head. Quite floral and juicy. Definitely an earthy quality to the aroma. Light raspberry. Vinous influence. I like the restrained sourness. Allows some sweetness to influence things. Tasty stuff.

Kriekenlambiek Girardin 5% Cask(well bag in a box from the fridge) at Fleur en Papier Doree. It pours a deep dense cherry red and smells of musty tart-sour cherries. Med-full bodied and qute smooth. The taste is oaky, tannic, sour cherry, their stems & seeds give it an earthy and almond quality. This is one old school Kriek that is in no way sweet. Well the sweetness is there but exceedingly ephemeral. This beer in this place is the ultimate in old school lambic feeling. Great.

olio (8479) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2015
Cardboard canister @ Gastropub Tuulensuu.
Pours dark red color with no head, completely flat. Sour cherries and some rose hip notes on the nose, mild yeast notes too. Sweet berries on the flavor, slightly sugary, cherries, faint raspberry notes and some gooseberries. Very quaffable, tasty too, maybe a bit more sour and this would have been great.

bastarda (300) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2015
kindly shared by bartlebier, thanks a lot. Aromas of dry sherry, wood, some brett, with ripe and juicy sour cherries underneath, develops similarly in taste, with some hints of pink fleshy grapefruit and some grapefruit peel sour-/bitterness at the end. Very nice and refreshing.
