Svesse (7683) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2016
(Bottle) Dark red colour with frothy, pink head. Fruity, sourish nose with dark cherries, almonds and red berries. Fruity, tart taste with notes of sour cherries, almonds, citrus (pink grapefruit, blood orange, orange peel), a touch of oak wood and a dry, tart finish. Medium body, dry. Clean and fresh cherry character and sourness, possibly lacking some of the funky barnyard and cobweb character of the best beers in the style. Nice one.

RasmusOtt (2082) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2016
Tap @ Mikkeller Aarhus. Pours deep red with a purple head. Aroma of those awesome cherries which is slight candy-like but also has some tartness in them. Also some, almonds, marzipan, deep oak and vinous notes. Just an awesome aroma. The taste follows with deep cherry notes, vanilla, almonds, oak and lots of vinous notes. The way this is sweet and yet tart and dry is a nice blend for me and I love both this and the barrel aged version. Great collaboration!

Fin blodröd färg, tydlig doft av sura körsbär. Smaken jag gärna fått vara antingen surare eller haft mer smak av söta körsbär, nu är det något mellanting som inte riktigt når det yttersta toppskicket. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Väldigt fin mörkröd färg. Den doftar gott. Smaken är för mycket mittemellan. Den borde ha varit antingen sötare eller surare. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

angel77 (2168) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 20, 2016
Caña en el Lupulo 20..03..2016. (r232). Color casi negro con tonos rojizos. Espuma poca con matices rojos rosaceos. Aromas y sabores intensos con predominio de cerezas dulces y con final ácido. Acidez bastante suavizado por las maderas que le dan también algo de especias (entre otras canela?). Cuerpo medio a intenso algo denso y espumoso, dentro del estilo de lo mejor hasta ahora. Bastante buena. Para repetir sin duda.

From Tap: deep red color with pink head, aroma is sourcherry, sourcherryjuice with very little funk/barnyard, taste is moistly sourcherry with sour dry funky finish, no bitterness, medium sweetness, less complex than other krieks but very well balanced, a lot of cherry on a little bit of funk, hides the higher ABV very good,

markextrae (3204) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2016
sample from bottle, poured a deep red colour with a slight pink head. nose of fresh deep cherries, sweet cherry pit, raspberries, taste is way more tart as the nose is telling, nice amount of funk, oak, and red vineous wine, nice dry and complex mouthfeel. these are the kind of beers mikkel makes best!
