KickInChalice (860) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2012
From notes. First reviewed 8/26/2011. 2010 bottle. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tasting glass. This has a kind of faded, dirty brown appearance with a cranberry tint and a subdued off-white head. Lactic and vinegary cherry and lemon in the nose, with a touch of sweetness and some oak. There is a lot of cherry in the flavor. After some smooth malt presence up front, sweet cherries turn lactic and sour. Accompanied by some other stone fruit flavors, this becomes more and more sour. Some vinegar and puckering sourness. The body is pretty much medium for the style, with a high level of bubbly carbonation. Dry, more so at the finish. This was pretty good, but I do not have a reason to really go after this again. Especially for the price, there are better options.

phredrik (1011) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle at tasting. Pours amber with a small rim of head. Aroma is bretanomyces forward, huge cherry component, jam-like, a good deal of vanilla, oak, Danish cherry sauce, lovely smelling! Taste has a nicely balanced tartness, good deal of cherries, brettanomyces, vanilla, wine barrel notes, nicely balanced. The sourness doesn’t have the astringency that Lolita had, which makes this more refined.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle 65 cl. Vintage 2010. Pours a reddish amber with a slight haze and an off-white head. Rather sour aroma, rather minerally with a little baking yeast showing. Medium body, very tart cherry notes, a Bretty edge and a very salty edge. Sour yeast culture doesn’t convince me it often comes out rather odd. 180212
