3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
250 ml bottle sampled in 2011. Murky looking orange body with a small and fast disappearing white head. Aroma is acidic fruity with hint of acetone. Flavor is very sour, acidic, vinegar with cherry. Feels a bit thin in body and aftertaste is mostly acidic with some cherry flavor. A bit difficult to place this one, I’m able to appreciate a really sour beer, and it’s actually quite interesting for a few sips, but much to sour for anything close to balance. Not able to drink much of this, and that’s actually a bad sign.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
180 ml bottle.
Pours a murky brown amber colour with a small head. Aroma is very tart with recognizable Cantillon aromas, cherries, oak and some chocolate. Flavour of toasted malts, cherries, strong wood, alcohol, biscuit and strong vinegar notes. Cantillon barrel brings an interesting tone to this beer, both gueuze- and fruit lambic -wise. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a long, lingering sour, woody and cherryish finish. Has some slight similarities with RR Consecration. Elegant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends bottle shop. The pour’s red with a small off-white head. The nose is tart vinegar, balsamic, strawberry, pennies, sugary sweetness. The taste is rotting cherries, more strawberry. Fruit by the Foot sweetness. Acetic tang, lip-puckering finish. Light body, soft carbonation. Aggressive. Overall, pretty decent stuff.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle via trade with Lassem. It pours cloud deep red with pretty much no head. The nose is rather strong on the Worcestershire sauce front, as well as tangy cherry, balsamic vinegar and vinous notes. The taste is pretty acidic, sour cherry, tangy berry, faint vomit, vinegar, some alcohol and damp wood with a dry, tart finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Glad to have tried it, but I am left disappointed. A bit rough and too acidic for my liking. Perhaps this would have been better fresher.

Bottle from thewolf, thanks! Pinkish red color, no head. Cherry, marzipan and vinous notes in the aroma. Sour, vunous flavor with lemon, amarena and marzipan. Complex beer, not a trace of alcohol. Full bodied. Top class.

Cloudy red beer, no head. Tart cherry and wood nose. Crisp dry palate. Tart cherry. worcester sauce acid. Dry tart finish. Okay but this is standard sour stuff. That is to say too sour for me.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a red-amber body with a small white head. Aroma is a formidable assault on the senses: paint thinner, cherries, vinegar, oak and hints of red fruits. Intense and almost chemical in a perversely "refreshing" way, the way sniffing on liquids with loads of menthol is. I feel degenerated for actually *almost* liking this. :-P Taste is hard sour tones, going from fruity cherry sourness on to hard, astringent woody tones, paint thinner, then finishing off with an intense vinegar boost. Holy cow! Intense, but not quite for me. Interesting, but weird in the...weird way. Glad to have tasted it. Once.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep golden orange
Paint thinner and lighter gas, cherries hard Subdued in the back
Paint thinner sadly joins the flavour rather intensly, some sour cherry notes is also present , but this is a very sick beer. Cant find very much positive to say about the flavours, but lets call it interesting.
Medium and oily
