Ktwse (3828) - Greater London, - MAY 11, 2013
Pours deep burgundy with a couple of fingers of dark pink frothy head. No doubt about it, this is one beautiful beer! Nose is strangely subdued, held back. Some cherry, oak wood, red grapes, basement aromas. Taste is big cherry sour with clear bretta, tasty but not very balanced. Body is light and refreshing with average carbonation.

Aroma is very sweet, full of cherry with Brett. Pours deep red with a pinkish head. Very sweet flavour, again very full of cherries. Medium body, quite flat, sweet finish. Yum!

375 ml bottle from Mikkeller & Friends Bottle Shop (BBE 21/01/26 (sic)) Pours dark red / burgundy with a small pinkish head. Aroma of cherries with hints of brett and barnyard. Reasonable sweet flavor with a strong cherry presence and some brett and barrels. Only moderate acidity. Dry finish. One of my favorites among Mikkellers’ Spontan-prefix beers.

MonsterMagnet (1074) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2016
Bottle from SlackerMads, many thanks! Great tart cherry nose with a light funkiness. Taste is loaded with cherries, wood, bit of funk, earthy. Not overly complex, but oh so flavourful. Tart but not overly sour, a bit wine like, drinks like a 3.5% abv, lovely.

neepsntatties (1715) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Bottle from Apex. Colour...dark, grapey, with a thin white head. Nose...cheese, sweaty feet, gym socks and cherry purée. Palate...dry, tannic, tart, bright and tight with even more cherry and yeasty notes that delightful and thrill the palate with ageless delight.

Tasted from the tap on the 26/05/2016. Unclear dark red colour with a medium pink head. Medium cherry aroma, some wood and Brettanomyces. Taste is moderate sweet, acidic and dry with cherry and tartness. Dry and sweet aftertaste. Next one please!

iggynelix (132) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Wow! ! On tap, Whole Foods Plymouth mtg. Pours deep blood/beet red, like a fizzy opaque merlot in a pint glass. Lambic style on the nose immediately, the sour it not over powering, but the cherry is light. Texture is slightly chalky, but may have been the glass.

Bottle. Pours deep Ruby magenta, small pink head, decent lacing. Aroma is huge cherry, tart cherry jam, light funk, leafy. Flavor is light tart, light plus funk, huge tart cherry, must, oak, minimal sweetness, just huge fruit. Medium body. Solid.
