bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2012
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.

ClubGonzo (3869) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2012
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.

ej (683) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2012
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

DSG (5634) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 16, 2012
[5/8/12] Bottle at Mikkeller Bar in Copenhagen. Clear red color with no head. Aroma of brett, cherries, alcohol, sweaty hints and some oak. Sourish woody flavor with lactic notes, cherries, some biscuity malt sweetness, citric hints and a bit of alcohol. Medium to full-bodied. A nice sipping beer.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAY 6, 2012
Pours a clear and red/orange beer with a weak white head. The aroma is cherries, marzipan and acetone. The flavor follows the nose with additional acidity, fruit and some vinegar. The palate is sweetness with some acidity. Overall this is a good beer.

DalzAle (1965) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle. Creamy pink pour, little carbonation and a sugary fruit aroma. Flavor was more sugary sour cherry, cheap sugar and vinegar. Not bad, but was hoping for something more from this one.

portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2012 Bottle. Pours hazy pink red color with little to no head. Aroma is sour candied cherries and funk with a leather and horsehair. Taste is all the above with a dry vinegar funk with cherries and raspberries. Palate is medium and very dry and acidic. Enjoyable!
