Amber with lacy off-white head. Smells tart with red fruit. Taste is nice, tart and clean, carbonation is good. This beer is very nice, one of the better American sours I have had.

My mates didn’t like this, amateurs. I did, deliciously tasty and yummy. Not Rodenbach Grand Cru though... lacks the err... complexity.. err..

Bottle (thanks Derek & Sarah! ) Pours a hazy red with a minimal white head. Crazy deep nose with ripe cherries and sweet fruit flavors. Taste is sweet and funky with a nice balance of lambic characteristics and a tart, wild ale finish. Good carbonation. Soft on the palate. Overall - a nice brew. Grazie Dr D - very tasty stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Rather clear red pour with almost no head. Aroma is quite unique: it’s halfway between the sweet dessert like sour cherry aromas and the vinegary/ketchupy aromas of rodenbach or duchesse de bourgogne. Taste is sour, lots of oak, again a sort of weird blend halfway in between two typical uses of sour cherries in beer. I wasn’t really expecting that much of the "duchesse" aroma, but it comes out very nicely. Pleasant sour beer.

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.
