0,2l on tap @ Mikkeller & Friends. Pours like a Merlot: dark purple with no head. Aroma is slightly sour and filled with cherries. Flavor is cherries and sour malts. Perfect palate. Excellent.

zacgillbanks (2264) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is a very dark red beer that pours with a bright red coloured head. It has sweet and sour cherry flavours with zesty fruit and a tart cherry finish. Very good but should have a weaker ABV for its taste and flavour.

@ Ölprovning på Havregatan 7 mars 2014. Fruktig och frisk, syrlighet, körsbär, kanel. Påminner en del om saftsåsen till risgrynsgröten.

108013, says the number on the cap. Purchased December 2013 at Craft Beer Cellar, Belmont, drunk 2/23/14
Deep, very dark black cherry skin body has a slight haze to it, but is otherwise nicely clear, leaving the sediment behind. Magenta-white head is medium-sized and recedes slowly to cover.
Tart cherry is prominent in the nose, and even a light raspberry-like note seems apparent. A touch of dry barrel tannin and a pinch of vanilla with little to no lambic character. Medium strength of aroma, no sign of the alcohol.
Yet another example of these recent cherry juice-like beers (3F Intens Red, GI Madame Rose). The cherry flavor is tart, sour even and very fleshy and authentic, fading slowly in to a strong black pepper phenol dryness, some more raspberry notes and almost a merlot-like punchiness. Reminds me strongly of boxed wine. In fact, the beer tastes more like a lambrusco than a beer, which isnt necessarily a bad thing, but lambic-wise? No way, not even close. Very little beer character and extremely light-bodied, very overattenuated. Alcohol well-concealed, at least, but why is it this strong?

Bottle at home from brewdog online
deep indigo purple with crimson head collapsing to a lacing. Black cherry yoghurt nose. Spiky carbonation, rich fruity cherry. Some lactic notes followed by a citric tartness and long dry cherry skin finish.

For those of us that appriciate a sour fruit-beer this is worth a try. Not up to par with the best of the best (3 Fonteinen) though.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar. Hazy dark red with a small white head. Cherry dominates aroma and flavour. Fruity and tart.
