Poured from bottle to glass. Blood red with fizzy pink head that dissipated. Aroma is cherry, lactic, oak, acetic. Mouthfeel is good with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet with a tart following and vinegar finish. Overall this is a decent brew.

37,5cl bottle at Grünerløkka brygghus (Mikkeller tap takeover). Intense deep red colour with a pink head. Very fruity aroma with lots of sweet dark cherries, hints of almond and sour berries. Intensely fruity with a mild sourness. Desserty and quite delicious.

neongolden (847) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
(Bottle at NK Bar, Stockholm, Oct 15 2014) Pours a deep purplish read like a full bodied red wine, with a small pinkish head that fades to a ring with a little lace. Aroma powerful tart cherry with oak and vanilla overtones, a vinous red wine character to the nose as well. Flavour more sour than the nose would suggest, with tart cherries in the lead as expected. There is a moderate oaky character, and a deeper dark fruit sweetness that is almost overwhelmed by the moderately sour acidic notes. Body is medium with active carb. Quite nice really, good cherry character. It’s not really a match for a top flight Belgian kriek but it’s a great sour fruit beer in its own right.

Beerathon (1635) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Wow. Smells like cherry pie. Deep cherry flavor that is both tart and sweet. Dark reddish purple in color with little carbonation. One of the best sours I’ve ever had.

DiarmaidBHK (3821) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2014
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.

Beer5000 (5191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2014
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 (3739) - 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.
