"Effin incredible brew that blows the socks off every other Spontan-beer Mikkeller makes, including thevery good kriek. Deep dark red pour, beautiful beer. Velvety soft feel. Aroma is woodsie with semi-sweet dark cherry flavor. Sour.tart aspect is well integrated and different than the others. Deeelicious. The depth of fruit here is more reminiscent of a luscious red wine than most any beer...and they make a cherry wine from the Frederiskdal Estate in Denmark. The only one Iíll spend the coin to get again! "

Bottle at home with my wife. Pour is deep dark cherry with a small pink head that quickly dissipated. Rich cherries, vanilla, spice, some oak characteristics, black currants, grapey and tannic aroma. Taste is tangy, pungent black cherries, fruit pit, light vanilla, some pie crust, and raspberries with a semi-sour finish. Full mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Great fruit characteristics and pretty tasty.

bottle split with Adnielsen. Pours like foamy grape juice. Aroma is funky, sweet, vinuous. Definitely smells like a sweet wine. Taste is dry, tart, vinuous. Not great...mostly just overly sweet. Canít get overt the wine aroma. Overall not great.

Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburís Fort Collins. Pours a very deep reddish purple appearance with a dark pink head. The aroma has a really rich dark berry nose to it. I suppose itís a bit like black cherry dessert bars. Soft mouth feel. Rich flavor thatís quite tart. Really juicy, black pie cherries. Tart finish. The richness of the black cherries is pretty amazing even if Iím not a crazy fan of the brew. Interesting.

375 ml bottle purchased at Daveís Bellport Cold Beer and Soda. Pours a deep red with a fizzy pink head that quickly dissipates. Very pleasant aroma that is fulled with sour cherry along with some oakiness lurking in the background. The flavor is lovely with ample sour cherry, bright and tart, again with some background oak and just a bit of vanilla. Tart and bright on the palate. Quite enjoyable.

Pour from a bottle is a nice opaque reddish black with a red head. The aroma is a subtle sweetness. When it hits your tongue you immediately taste the sweet cherries and then goes into the sour with a slight oak flavor. Leaves a tart after taste.

Hazy dark red with a small white head. Cherry dominates aroma and flavour. Fruity and tart.

A dark red wine color with a little bit of white head around the rim. Smells of sour cherry, red wine, vanilla, honey. Taste is a medium cherry sour, some vanilla, red wine flavors, dry wine finish, a little bit of grape juice taste. A tiny bit of hop bitter at the end. Refreshing and tolerable sourness that has enough sweetness and a dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2013 bottle. Pours a deep cranberry red with a fizzy cranberry pink head. Aroma is cherry with a slight buttery/waxey smell that I think may be from the oak. Taste is tart/sour pie cherry with a little vanilla. Slightly sweet and a dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught 2012 ed. @ Mikropolis. Pours opaque dark red with a small pink head. Aroma is very fruity, almond, cherries, cherry-stones, oak and hints of brett. Taste is light+ sweet, bitter and light tart. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Finishes dense cherry fruity, dry and almond bitter. Iíd prefer this to be tarter to achieve freshness and greater drinkability. Aging might correct this.. Time will tell.
