Ktwse (2621) - - 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.

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 (3097) - 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.

Vestergaard (840) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2015

larsga (6626) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2015
Big pink head. Beautiful deep clear dark red body with carbonation. Oily cherry aroma with sherry and yoghurt notes. Not that strong, but very clean. Acidic fruity cherry taste with almonds and earth notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry-acidic earthy cherry aftertaste with earthy notes. Smelled like they might possibly have been on to something truly great, but the flavour is not as good. A bit unclean and sharp, also lacking in complexity, but not a bad beer. (0.375l bottle, I have no idea where from.)
