Bottle from Hazel’s beverage world. pours deep and robust cherry with a cherry head. leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. I can smell the tart cherries from the keyboard. If put my nose closer to the glass I can smell some of the evidence of the barrel aging. I definitely get some cherry on the tongue as well as some tartness. Hides it’s alcohol well. I was expecting a bigger flavor palate on the tongue but would make a nice compliment to a steak.

375 ml bottle @ Cardinal. Dark, blood red body with a rather small and fast disappearing, pink head leaving curtains. Strong matured cherry aroma, feels both sweet and acidic, light wood and hint of marzipan. Flavor is sweet cherry, acidic fruit, light wood, some marzipan and some kind of fruity bitterness. Fine, strong and balanced body with a long lasting aftertaste. It’s really good, but not magic. It’s not like the best Belgium versions of kriek or oude brune but at the same time it feels like such a different thing that it might be a bit unfear to compare. Do doubt a well-made fruit beer, it might even develop a bit yet, as there is still more potensiale to go for here.

Holmen1 (3538) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2014
Fra flaske på Cardinal, M2 sep-14: mørkerød vinfarge og mørkerosa skum. en herlig aroma av kirsebær, og smaken har en elegant surhet kombinert med den bitterheten man får når man beholder noen kjerner i kirsebærsyltetøyet. Fint karbonert og med en deilig, laaang ettersmak. En flott ølopplevelse i lambicstilen.

375 ml bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. 2013 edition best by 23/01/22. Dark ruby with just over a finger of nice pink head. Aromas of tart cherries, some vanilla, sweet dark fruit, a touch of vinegar. Nice sweet aroma that kind of reminds me of some sweeter meads. Tastes of big tart and sour cherries and dark fruit, oak, vinegar, sour acidic notes. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Alcohol is well masked. Very tasty cherry lambic.

La couleur est d’un rouge vin très foncé. Une très légère mousse accompagne une carbonatation étonnament réussie. Au nez, ça sens le vin rouge et les cerises noires. C’est une véritable avalanche de cerises noires en bouche! Le corps est rond et satisfaisant. Le côté surette désigne sans ambiguité cette bière comme étant raffraichissante. Si ce n’était de son prix dispendieux (tout du moins par l’obtenir au Québec) j’en acheterais d’autres sans hésiter.

Draft at Eulogy. Very dark hazy ruby pour with a slim white head. Nice deep black cherry flavors. Some dark malts. Red plums. Blood orange chocolates. Fairly clean sour with a nice fuzzy oak finish. Pretty extraordinary!
