22oz bottle ’10 Vintage 6/16/12-46° in Snifter-Pours a murky ruby reddish brown with a small ring for a head. Aroma of cherries, tart, and sour. Taste of cherries, sour, tart, and malt. This medium to full bodied brew is very well balanced and is extremely tasty. Nice job.

Bottle, bought @ Voldby Købmandsgaard.
Pours hazy red with a small, fizzy, pinkish off-white head. Aroma has good tartness, cherries, light oak, red currants. Highish carbonation, fine light and dry mild puckering mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, mild cherries, clear oak, vanilla, mild tartness. Some mild sweetness. Elegant if a tad too subtle.

Defreni (2995) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2012
Flaske: Rødlig brun øl med et fint let lyserødt skumhoved. Fantastisk duft af sure kirsebær og flamsk brun. Gode sure noter der passer perfekt til kirsebærrene. Smagen er næsten ikke kirsebær. Tilgengæld er det en flot balanceret surhed, igen mere ovre i den belgiske stil en den amerikanske. Fremragende.

Reynolds314 (3302) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Sampled at HF bottle share. I loved this beer. Great sour cherry flavor with light subtle funk that I love. The oak is nicely balanced to provide a woody vanilla undertone that plays off the sour nicely. Really top notch.

jcartamdg (3058) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Pours a red- brown color into my bruery tulip. Aroma of vinegar, cherries and Brett. Taste follows the nose, Brett is more present that other takes on this style. Sour but not overpowering. Cherries are amazing at the end of the taste. Smooth and delicious, no alcohol burn present. Great Sour!

Habanero (3952) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2012
Bottled. Pours clear copper amber with a small off-white head. Nose of sour cherries and vanilla notes. Sweet/sour flavor with cherries and citrussy notes. Medium bodied, watery to creamy texture and soft carbonation. Ends up tart. I’ a big fan of either cherries or sour ales, but this one I think is pretty good.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Thanks to lurchingbeast for sending me this bottle. Pours a  dark golden ruby color with burnt orange edges and a one finger off white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring.  Spotty lacing left behind. Funky barnyard aroma with lots of vinous fruit and prominent barrel, giving off strong notes of oak and vanilla.  Lots of cherry and other dark fruits.  Plenty of bugs and funk. Medium body which is dry, very tart and puckering with lots of earthy funk, oak barrel and sweet fruit.  Prominent tart dark cherry but still sweet with lactic funk.  Subtle acetone presence at first that becomes a bit overpowering with a powerful, lingering vinegary/solvent finish.  A bit harsh on the acidity but decent amount of sweetness and oak countering things.  This had the potential to be a lot better but the acetic solvent character is just too strong for my liking.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAY 8, 2012
22 oz bottle via trade. Murky reddish/brown with a small off white head. Aroma of sour pie cherries, funky banyard, vinegar and wet wood. Flavor is very sour, lots of vinegar and acid with some cherry and graham cracker malt. Medium to light body with lively carbonation and a bone dry mouth feel. Nice sour, fruit beer, although not for someone new to sours, this one is really sour.

teorn88 (6190) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2012
22oz bottle. Pours a clear ruby colur with a small beige head. Aroma is cherries, sour, wood, red wine, basement. Taste is similar, with cherries, wood, blasamic vinegar, dust. Definitely sour, almost mouth puckering. Finish is acidic and full of red berries. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Overall, this really smells and taste like a sort of blend of Rodenbach Grand Cru and a Kriek. Amazing, truly amazing.
