650 ml bottle @ Geokkjers Lambic Farm, courtesy of Meilby. Slightly hazy reddish golden body with a small off-white head. Delicious aroma of acidic fruit, berries, vinegar and a hint of oak. Flavor is fruity sour, light cherry, hint of oak and pleasant mild vinegar. Medium body with a long and tingling sour aftertaste. So fantastic balanced with exiting flavors, close to perfection.

Bottle, 22oz. A deep golden orange beer with a small, dense, off-white to beige head. Clear. Cherries, sourness, some cellar and vinegar. Hints of oak. Vinegar, berries, a touch of caramel, and some oak in the flavor. Balanced and very tasteful, tart and full-bodied, with pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish where there’s also some sweetness. Sure a nice one, and unlike most American sour ales, I really like it. 120326

Cherry red. Good level of carb that sticks around. Smells like sour cherries, oak and funk. Taste is wonderful. Strong sour and cherry flavor like a kriek, I am getting some belgian tastes but it doesn’t dominate this beer.

Beersiveknown (3832) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle at home from Drinkstore Red-hued chestnut brown with little head formation. Pretty vinegary nose, closer to rodenbach than oud bruin. The cherries are there but you have to search for them, I’d have liked a bit more prevalency.

RasmusOtt (1519) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2012
Bottle @ lortsker - thx ! . Pours dark unlear red with a tiny white head. Aroma is sour cream, neutral yogurt, buttermilk, lacto acid and weak acidic notes. Behind this you get some sour berries, especially raspberry along with some yeasty funk. The taste is lacto acid, alot of funk, brett, yogurt, sour cream, tart, sweet balsamic, light acetone, winey notes and sour and sweet berries (if that makes sense).

Deuce to tulip. Looks decent, but very dark for a "kriek". Smells good; you can pick up on the sour and cherries in its scent. Tastes good too; it’s definitely a hybrid of tripel and sour. Mouthfeel is nice. Overall, a tasty treat that I’m glad I found while in NYC.

NosirIwont (2119) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep golden/brownish colour with a diminishing beige head. Aroma is sour and malty with a slightly candy-like sweetness. Flavour is sour, sweetish and malty, but the sourness overshadows the other impressions. Kind of generic, except for the sourness. Dry, sour finish. Overall oay as such, but the sourness is too dominant and it lacks character besides that sourness. 17.02.12.

Did some of those oak barrels previously hold redwine? Besides the cherries I’m getting an elegant Wine/raisin like quality on the nose. The taste is ’dominated’ by the american cherries but the oak and wild yeast leaves its mark too. Everything is nicely ballanced and the aftertaste is dry with fresh fruit.
