Già dall’aroma si percepisce la differenza con una normale kriek. Qui, pur persistendo un acido discretamente deciso, il sapore della ciliegia è assolutamente predominante. Esattamente quello che volevo quando ho espresso il desiderio di una lambic fruttata. Mikkeller non finisce mai di stupirci.

Opaque dark purple beer with a tidy mauve head! Palate is minerally crisp. Rich cherry juice, lesser blackberry and blackcurrant. Seltzer minerals. Crisp finish. Tasty!

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 30, 2013
plum colored with puffy pink head, rich and strong. Nose is moderately balsamic, very yeasty with fresh bread, sour cherries offput the sweetness. Tale of two cities moving to flavor, no balsamic but tart dry cherry skins, watery mid to finish, thin and sticky but with fizzy carbonation to keep moderately light.

Ozzak (43) - BERGEN, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2013
Bottle. Really nice intense deep-red with an appealing pink head that settles fairly quickly. Beautiful to look at. Really solid cherry aroma, maybe with a hint of vanilla in the back? Maybe a hint of the oak. The taste is sour with some sweetness. Not as dense and full cherry as expected from the aroma. Also a little bit thin on the palate. But the cherry lingers on after swallowing. A really enjoyable sour!

Enegaard (53) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2013
Beautiful creation! Nice pink head, fades rather quickly. Smells like christmas to me; amarena cherry sauce. Taste is quite sweet and not overwhelmingly sour, very well balanced and full bodied. Superb cherry sour, one of my favourites of the style.

lusikka (5993) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 5, 2013
375 ml bottle.
Pours a dark ruby red colour with a pink head. Aroma of red cherries, nuttiness and wood. Rather rich flavour of pungent red cherries, wood, vanilla, dough, some nuttiness and cherry twigs. Medium bodied, dry mouthfeel and a pungent cherry finish with some wooden notes. Good.
