Bottle - Vintage 2012 - Tons of tart cherries. Cloudy pinkish/red with a decent white head. Intense acidic tartness, light cherry notes and bone dry. Tartness is a bit over the top, would have loved to try this fresh.

2007 edition. Best Before january 2014 but still very good a year after that. Supersour and tart but oh so much taste and a real enjoyment to drink with good food among non-beer-drinking friends who also enjoyed this beer.

Tried 2007 vs 2012 750ml. Strange enough the 2007 was more fruity than 2012?! 2012 was more funky. You can trave the beer very well through the years. Very nice beer indeed, but in this case I actually prefered the 2007.
