The beer pours dark red color with no bubbles or head. Nice black cherry aroma with a mild funk and sourness. Some straw and grass with a mild lemon/lactic sourness. Light wood to the aroma, but overall sort of subtle. More tartness than you would expect from the nose. Nice cherry flavor. Slight cherry pie flavor with a nice sourness, too. Some grass, lemon, and a slightly musty oak note. Medium in body with little to no carbonation. Quite a nice beer. Unfortunately, it’s just too bad that it’s so expensive.

Ohhh so stoked I finally got to try this! Thanks to my lovely Chavon who shared this one with me. At $26 a bottle, it ain’t cheap. Pours a dark ruby red, pretty flat. Nose is not over the top, wet malt, hints of funk and sour cherries. Flavor is relatively smooth, not super carbonated like a lot of lambics. A bit thinner than expected, but really comes through in the finish. Wet for a lot of the taste, then writhing in sour funk and cherry in the end. Little bit of barnyard in there. Overall, really dank, just could be a bit thicker. Not sure if I’d pay the price for another one, but am super thankful I got to try it!

Flaske 0,33l kjøpt på Hanssens Artisanaal i Dworp. Delt med Rune under seanse hos ham 29 Jun 11. Dyprød. 0 skum. 0 aroma. Syrlig fruktsmak. Rimelig kjedelig men sikkert et fint dessert/kakeøl.

Deep cherry red color, very small head. Nose of tart cherry funk....lovely. Less carbonated that I would have thought. Strong tart cherry flavor with a good funky finish.

375ml shared with shadowane. Pours a very dark cherry color with dark plum hues. Still with no head or lacing. Sweet, funky aroma with lots of barnyard, horsey notes and sweet dark cherries. Slightly acetic with musty funk and vinous dark fruit. The fruit presence is strong with a ton of cherries.  So much so, I could even smell the pit of the fruit. Tart and vinous with a very dry, puckering mouthfeel that has very little acidity. Nice and sour without being harsh with tons of earthy funk and vinous fruit.  More funky than anything with earthy hints of hay balanced by sweet dark fruit. Nice cherry flavor but not overly sweet.  Well balanced with elements of sweet, tart, dryness and funk. Lingering vinegar-y finish leaves me thirsting for more.   Overall this was pretty good with lots of funk and sweet cherry flavor but it’s a little thinner bodied than I prefer.
