Ktwse (2844) - - 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.

McWorta (1051) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 2, 2015
Deep cherry red with a frothy small cherry red head. Aromas of cherry predominate with notes of wood and almonds. Light lively, watery-slick texture with a light-medium body. Light cherry sweetness developing a fruity sour cherry note. Lightly astringent short finish.

King_Alex_II (675) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 26, 2015
Darkest red with pink foam. The smell has a fruit cherry note that is significant different from the chemical cherry flavor. The taste is aggressively sour with the same intense cherry flavor. A little heavy on the stomach though. Sour aftertaste with a calm and dry finish.

SinH4 (1132) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2015
Dark purple color with pink foam. Beautiful. Sour cherries aroma, some umami, no funk. Cinnamon in the back, cloves as well (in the empty glass they are very present). Taste is cherries, wood, sorta sweet, also umami, not too dry, but sour finish, but it still pulls your saliva. Very different for a (Oude?) Kriek. It has the Mikkeller spontan-feeling (from de Proef?s yeast?), tastes different, more lactic than Lambic, but different and still awesome! Great!

Dyp mørk rød med to fingre høyt rosa skum. Kraftig kirsebærlukt, vanilje og epler. Syrlig smak, sure kirsebær og rips. Medium fylde. Lang syrlig, tørr, cherryfølelse. Koseøl.

pilgrimoutlaw (867) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2015
On tap at Capone’s. Cranberry color with small white head. Grapefruit, cherry, tropical fruit, cranberry. Medium sweet and tart. Medium, lightly crisp body. Tastes more like a mixed drink than a beer.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle: Deep, indigo-red body with a lavender tinted foam that slowly settles to a thin ring. Aroma contains notes of sweet cherry pie filling, currants, jammy berries, a touch of red wine, faint oak, & a twinge of musty funk in the back-end. Flavor is more dry & tart, rather than sweet like the aroma. Much more vinous, too. Tons of oaky tannins, dry & sharp cherry skins, red wine grapes, musty oak, some raspberry, a hint of cinnamon spice in the finish with a tingle of vinousness that lingers. Very dry, leaves a touch of musty oak in the aftertaste. Very nice.
