375 ml bottle @ home. Wow! What a pour, deep red with a lacing white head. Aroma is berries and almonds. Taste is not as tart as othe fruit lambics. Lots of cherries and some marzipan. Heavenly beer!

kramer (4856) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a beautiful dark ruby red body under a fizzy effervescent pink-tinged head that faded quickly to a thin ring. The aroma is really intense on the cherry with lighter notes of oak and sour funkiness. The flavor is equally intense with the cherries. I canít imagine how many cherries went into a barrel of this in order to make it so crazy intense. Itís like drinking sour cherry pie filling. Just a slight tartness from the yeast, the sour notes seem to come directly from the cherries. Just lightly acidic, just enough to make the cherries brighten up a bit and shine. A light oaky tannic note late on the finish. Medium bodied, really walking the line between sweet and sour. Nice fizzy pinpoint carbonation. Pretty nice beer, most of these Milkeller beers in this series that Iíve had are really pretty tasty.

b3shine (5120) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2014
375 ml bottle to snifter (2013 vintage; shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a mostly opaque black cherry with foamy pink head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells sour and a little funky with notes of tart cherries. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly tart mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

24/V/14 - 37.5cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ Procrastinated Spontan Gent Tasting - BB: 14/II/21 (2014-538) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the bottle!

Deep ruby red beer, creamy to fizzy dark pink had, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots and lots of sour cherries, pretty sweet fruity notes, almonds, bit metallic. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of cherries, sourish, bit lemony, pretty bitter, tannins from peels and pits I guess? Some almonds, little sweet. Aftertaste: nice sourness, lemony, sour cherries, cherry candy but not sweet, fruity in general. Well done!

storskurk (94) - DENMARK - JUN 5, 2014
Duft: Ren kirsebær, ikke sukker. Kirsebærsten. Ingen malt eller mælkesyrlighed. Jo måske lidt. Mørk rød og blå. Syrlig intro som lambic. Meget tydelig kirsebær som vinen, men med meget flot eftersmag af fade og tør, afrundet kirsebær. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
