dfearnley (1807) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 18, 2016
Bottle to tulip Consummation: Sour cherry, some earthy notes, but then the sour fades and I get sweet cherry Adjunct: Aroma is cherry, blackberry, lemon, and funk; pours a deep red with a one finger bright pink creamy head; medium bodied and not quite puckering; brilliant beer...why did I only buy one

reebtogi (5685) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 12, 2016
375ml bottle pours a reddish amber color with a pink head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by cherries with some sweet malts hints of oak and yeast. Taste is a cherry tartness with a cherry and malty sweetness finishing dry. Medium bodied with good carbonation that pleases the palate. Overall, a very nicely done brew that is an excellent example of the style and deserved of a top 50 rating in it’s category. Highly recommended.

sjogro (2722) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2016
At home. Bottle courtesy of Maakun. Dark red with light pink head. Sweet cherries and sour cherries, blackberries and blueberries, bitter stones, faint metallic notes. Medium sweet, light sour, light bitter. Over medium body, soft carbonation, dry chalky feel, makes me think of a heavy Chilean red wine with lots of tannins.

Maakun (3926) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2016
2015 version, 7.2% ABV. Bottle shared. Very dark ruby with dark pink head that leaves a big ring. Lots of cherries and almonds on the nose. When sipping the almonds take over a bit with berry pits, hay, still a lot of cherries of course. Then some dusty notes, light funk, lactic sweetness, twigs, more hay. Under medium sweet and sour with lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Very good fruits, but it doesn’t work all that well with the base beer. Overall quite good though.

elbernays (1228) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 4, 2016
Bottle shared. Pours pink, purple with reddish head. Aroma is cherry, sour, liquor. Flavour is thick cherry with mild tart finish. It’s luscious and a beautiful beer.

Turtles (1989) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2016
Keg @ BrewDog, Södermalm. Deep purple, pink/white head, some lacing. Great clean cherry aroma, oak barrels and woody and almonds. Dry and tart mouthfeel, medium carbonated. Clean cherry taste, ripe cherries, grass and green apples. Insanely drinkable!
