4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle, 2007 vintage, bottle # 09830 thanks to Andy at the 4th of July tasting. Pours brilliant ruby red with a foamy pink head. Aroma is bright jammy cherries. Taste is very tart cherries, both the skins and flesh, with notes of acidic funk, oak/wood and a lemony tartness. Great bright cherry tartness lingers on the palate. Really, really tasty.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
From start to end this one is sour. Sour with some hints of cherries and sour fruits in the taste. But nose / aroma and the aftertaste are really huge. Aroma of wild, sour, bit dry cherries and a (what a surprise) sourish geuze end. I was not sure about that one. But give it a bit air to breathe and it turns out to be a nice friend.

Bottle shared at Dark Lord Day (Munster, IN). Pours a rich murky reddish pour, crimson berry with some deep wine glow. A frothy pinkish head atop dies to a ring, laces ok.

Initial is lighter end of the fold, sour cherries, lactic acidity. Cherryskin and fruit, lemon, and horseblanket. Intensity up front, cherry and lemon, firm sourness. Middle is funk, softer fruit and horseblanket. Backend is dry and bretty, horseblanket, and straw. A bit funky on the nose, the finish settles down. Good sharpness, cherry and kriek elements, funk, barrel and rich horseblanket, funk and cobwebs, some lactic yogurt linger. Solid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Darkpink, pink huge head, fading.
Tart aroma, cherries, banana, yoghurt.
Taste is cherry but immediately overruled by tartness, lemon, granny smith. This huge sourness started to grow on me, yet it’s still not my favorite style of beer.
Bitter and fruityness take over the sour taste. Fizzy mouthfeel.
