Bottle. Courtesy of Ann. Blood/purple pour with no head. Aroma is a mix of staleness. Taste is very sour, bordering on vinegar. Very flat, wine like. Old musty flavor is dominant. Not sure if this bottle was mishandled or if this is the batch.

375ml bottle that my cousin scored for $11 which is surely a misprice. Blood red color and no head whatsoever. Aroma is thick cherries. Flavor is solid cherries both sour cherries and a cherry pie flavor. Oddly no funk and almost no tartness according to my tongue. Overall a very fruity kriek but this is no better than a regular hanssens kriek with polish cherries and I didn’t really pickup any cinnamon notes that supposedly come along with the schaerbeekse cherries. This beer is certainly not worth the normal $23 price tag and frankly isn’t worth half the price tag. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-17-2012 21:10:10

Bottle from Winooski beverage warehouse. Pours a hazy purple red pour with no head. Aroma is not particularly reminiscent of cherries, I get a lot of orange zest, blueberry, strawberry and funk myself. Taste is also very blueberry skin, quite tanic, light grapes, lots of citrus, particularly orange, acidic, light vinegar, quite interesting, everything but cherry. Palate is very flat, acidic and bone dry. Not stellar, but a very interesting beer that is fun to explore. Not worth it’s very hefty pricetag.

Bottle. Dark clear cherry red pour with no particular head at all. Delicious intense dark cherry flavors. Full syrupy wonderment. Really surprised. Loved quite a lot. Clean sour cherries aged to perfection. Good balance of sour over sweet. Simple yet smooth and complex. Fantastic!

Boutip (5346) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle: Poured a cloudy deep red color lambic with a small bubbly head with no retention or lacing. Aroma of tart notes of cherry with loads of barnyard notes. Taste is also dominated by tart notes of cherries though not as much sour notes or acidity as I was expecting. There is quite a bit of barnyard notes with some funky notes. Body is full with limited filtration and almost no carbonation. Interesting though not something I would need to have on a regular basis.

Pours a very pretty ruby red. Flat and no head on this one, the aroma is a combo of sour cherries and yeast. Starts smooth with no hint of the oak it was aged in. Very tart finish, yet bland ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not sure of the vintage. Corked and caged bottle. It pours a slightly brownish red with no head whatsoever. Smell is pretty good. Nice sour cherries, a little bit of that "bleach" scent, rinds, pits, w/e from the cherry, nice sourness though not too much, oak is there in the background. Smell is almost like a cherry orchard. Only the vaguest hint of carbonation is in the mouthfeel. The flavor is fantastic. Nice sour/tart cherry punch, plenty of bugs for added sourness and some funk. It isn’t a sourfest but definitely a nice pucker with some lemon and green apple acidity. Oak again in background and it smooths it out a bit. The cherry flavor is one of the best I have encountered in a beer. Simply put this is an epic beer for cherry and sour lovers.

Bottle at Sour Fest, poured a nice red color, aromas of light sour cherries, light oak, and a touch of vanilla. Flavors are tart cherries up front with some dry oak in the back, nice beer overall, not over the top tart either.
