12 oz bottle poured. Cherry red color with almost no head. I see nothing offensive here. Made the mistake of reading reviews before trying this, but have never let that change my opinion. Soft, mixed berry aroma. Flavor is a nicely soured red cherry, with a slightly sweet jam finish. 5/10 on souress, which is a nice amount here. Juicy cherry, and drinks nice. I love it.

Single bottle from Muckey’s. Poured into a tulip. A very nice reddish brown color. Frothy pink head. Pleasant earthy-fruit aromas. Sour cherry flavor. A little sweet but otherwise quite drinkable and refreshing.

Bulk_Carrier (3539) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JUL 8, 2016
This was poured into a pokal. The appearance was a hazy burnt amber color with a foamy white finger’s worth of head. Spider web messy lacing. The smell started with some nice tart cherry up front. Light woodiness. Slight vanilla. Warms into some subtle sweet cherry. The flavor takes in the same qualities as the aroma. Mildly sweet but has a nice level of sour with the cherry acidity coming through as it should. Quick semi-sweet to sour cherry flows into the aftertaste. Dry semi-sticky semi-sour to sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it since the sour isn’t too wild in this one. Tame enough, but just enough sweetness to really let this one flow right on over my tongue. Even the acidity hits just right. Overall, damn nice lambic, would love to have again.

Sweet and sour cherry and plum. Pours a dark opaque plum color with a thin for white head. Mild sweetness at the start that quickly goes to a tart cherry flavor. Dry finish. Very nice.

MarkoNm (2254) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUN 28, 2016
Pours a fairly clear dark ruby color, topped with a fair off-white head, pinkj undertone. Nicely lasting. Quite soury aroma, vinegar and cellar-like. Missing the fruity notes, sadly. Taste is sweet and soury, nice soury cherry feel, though not so fruity as one would expect. Fresh and failry light. Nice summer refreshment. Decent.

degbert (1642) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear dark red with a medium-grained, shallow, mashed-potato, red-orange head. Nose is cherry, wild rose, red wine vinegar, sumac, and rye cracker. Really tart up front, with a definite sour cherry bite; there’s a lot of fruit vinegar to it as well, and a lactic savory edge like Muenster cheese. The sourness is balanced somewhat by cherry pit and skin bitterness. A little thin on the finish, shading towards Sweet-Tart. It’s all right.

bytemesis (6445) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Bottle, as Kriek des Jacobins. Pours clear ruby, small beige-pink head, dissipates quickly but with good lacing. Aroma is cherries, hint of fecal matter, funk. Flavor is pretty sweet, light tart, cherries, very light funkiness. Medium body. Eh. Pretty beer, but not really much backing it up.

CanIHave4Beers (3969) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 28, 2016
LIVE RATE! Pours a dark hazy red with a small head & good lace. The aroma is mildly funky with some sweetness and a big cherry character. Lightly nutty and floral, but mild. The flavor is lightly sour with a light sweetness & plenty of tart cherry. Light lemon & ludens drops persist. Reasonably nice.

Helder rood bier met kleine roze schuimkraag. Aroma: zoetig, fruitig Smaak: zurig, krieken Mondgevoel: licht met mooi koolzuur Afdronk: eerder zure afdronk met een verfrissende ontwikkeling. Perfect zomerbier!
