3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Muddy red colour with no foam at all. Strong aromas of fruits, some cherries and other berries. The nose is not very sour but overpowering with alcohol and something sweet and sticky, almost like acetum. Full bodied with and very boozy. Some sourness coats my mouth.. Not really my cup of tea I like my sour ales lighter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a clear reddish color ale with a small bubbly head with no retention and no lacing. Aroma of tart cherries and oak notes is quite sour with light funky notes. Taste is also a mix between some tart cherries with light oak and some barnyard notes. Acidity level is well balanced with low carbonation. Well balanced mix between some sour cherry notes is quite interesting but not as complex as I had anticipated.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, courtesy of Meilby. It looks quite ugly in the glass, with an unclear, reddish dark golden body and a minimal off-white head. Just a ring ouf bubbles actually. Cherries on the nose, with some oak, vanilla, maltyness and a good dash of vinegar. Its mouthfeel is of course acidic and puckering, but also sort of like drinking whip cream. Lots of cherry and vinegar both initially and in the end. Well, I like the aroma and flavor, but it still isn’t very nice. 110524

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small white head. Hazy bright red body. Intense lacquer, cherries, and wood aroma with metallic notes. Dry-sweet-acidic toffee marzipan cherry taste with floral notes. Mid-bodied. Sharply acidic and astringent mouthfeel, so strong it burns. Dry waxy floral cherry aftertaste with metallic earthy notes. Extreme, but somehow nice. A bit much acid, though. (0.25l bottle from some shop in Copenhagen. I forget which.)

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Max. Pours initially a violet reddish clear, then hazes towards the bottom from the sediment- thin fizzy dissipating head. Aroma is nice sour cherry, cherry juice, light aceto-flemish red kick but still very pleasant, slight sweet tart candy, light fruity brett kick, and hints of old wood. Flavor is light caramel malt covered with sour cherry, cherry juice cherry pit, Flemish red mixed with kriek, medium to light sweet cherry in the middle, turns slightly bitter and woody in the end with a medium to light tartness. Pretty good, but not great.
