3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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!

"Effin incredible brew that blows the socks off every other Spontan-beer Mikkeller makes, including thevery good kriek. Deep dark red pour, beautiful beer. Velvety soft feel. Aroma is woodsie with semi-sweet dark cherry flavor. Sour.tart aspect is well integrated and different than the others. Deeelicious. The depth of fruit here is more reminiscent of a luscious red wine than most any beer...and they make a cherry wine from the Frederiskdal Estate in Denmark. The only one I’ll spend the coin to get again! "

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home with my wife. Pour is deep dark cherry with a small pink head that quickly dissipated. Rich cherries, vanilla, spice, some oak characteristics, black currants, grapey and tannic aroma. Taste is tangy, pungent black cherries, fruit pit, light vanilla, some pie crust, and raspberries with a semi-sour finish. Full mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Great fruit characteristics and pretty tasty.

bottle split with Adnielsen. Pours like foamy grape juice. Aroma is funky, sweet, vinuous. Definitely smells like a sweet wine. Taste is dry, tart, vinuous. Not great...mostly just overly sweet. Can’t get overt the wine aroma. Overall not great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a very deep reddish purple appearance with a dark pink head. The aroma has a really rich dark berry nose to it. I suppose it’s a bit like black cherry dessert bars. Soft mouth feel. Rich flavor that’s quite tart. Really juicy, black pie cherries. Tart finish. The richness of the black cherries is pretty amazing even if I’m not a crazy fan of the brew. Interesting.

375 ml bottle purchased at Dave’s Bellport Cold Beer and Soda. Pours a deep red with a fizzy pink head that quickly dissipates. Very pleasant aroma that is fulled with sour cherry along with some oakiness lurking in the background. The flavor is lovely with ample sour cherry, bright and tart, again with some background oak and just a bit of vanilla. Tart and bright on the palate. Quite enjoyable.

Pour from a bottle is a nice opaque reddish black with a red head. The aroma is a subtle sweetness. When it hits your tongue you immediately taste the sweet cherries and then goes into the sour with a slight oak flavor. Leaves a tart after taste.

Hazy dark red with a small white head. Cherry dominates aroma and flavour. Fruity and tart.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A dark red wine color with a little bit of white head around the rim. Smells of sour cherry, red wine, vanilla, honey. Taste is a medium cherry sour, some vanilla, red wine flavors, dry wine finish, a little bit of grape juice taste. A tiny bit of hop bitter at the end. Refreshing and tolerable sourness that has enough sweetness and a dry finish.
