cpetrone84 (1797) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2012
pours a faded hazy mahogany red with a foamy looking bubbly head. The nose is ok, fair bit of oak with light vanilla and cherry as a moderate acidity and sawdusty Brett. Flavor is similar. Decent acidity in the finish, cherries are light and the oak is still most prominent with a fair bit of vanilla. Light body, assertive carbonation, semi dry finish and assertive but nice sourness. Decent, drink closer to room temp. Balanced but a touch flabby.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 9, 2012
[22floz bottle courtesy of Ashton McCobb] Reddish amber colour with a thin white head. Sharp, vinous nose - very clean, tart on the palate. Not a huge amount of cherry in there, but they contribute to the general tartness. Sour rather than vinegary. Decent enough [08042012]

650ml bomber. Pours honey coloured with a thin layer of lace. The nose is Flemish Red, sour, oak tannins and bready. The taste is winey and cherries. The palate is medium bodied, with a tight, tangy texture and a long lean finish. Overall, a really good interpretation.

Beer5000 (5470) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 5, 2012
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.

yngwie (16065) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2012
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

alpar (160) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2012
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.
