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

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.

#2500 beer. #100 Fruit lambic. 375 ml. bottle split by 3. BBF 14/02/2021. Colour is incredible, extremely dark ruby red wine, amazing, head unfortunately does not last which is sad because it looks like raspberry mouse, this has to be one of the most incredible looking beers out there. Nose is pure cherries, light iron, pure cherry juice, mild tart and cherry jam. Taste is incredibly big on cherry juice (almost a bit what 3F Intense Red did with kriek’s), tastes like the whole of a cherry, the pit and lots of the skin as well, some bitter skin and touch of iron, spices, hint of wine and red grape skins, cherry overpowers virtually all Spontan notes, light sourness and nice tang + touch of oak. Pure juice body, touch lighter carb. Very nice, Spontan beers to be becoming more interesting lately. Dry.

deep indigo purple with crimson head collapsing to a lacing. Black cherry yoghurt nose. Spiky carbonation, rich fruity cherry. Some lactic notes followed by a citric tartness and long dry cherry skin finish.

Pyrmir (3478) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2014
On tap at mikkeller stefans. Dark red with no head. Aroma of cherries, cherry piths, marmalade and liquor. Sweet and nice. Taste is fairly sour, marmalade, cherries and bitter cherry pith notes. Very pleasant.

SlackerMads (1681) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle. Clear dark reed with a large diminishing bubbly pink head. Strong cherry wine aroma, almonds, light oak. Taste is medium sweet and tart, but not puckering sour. Feels light for the abv, no noticeable alcohol but lots and lots of cherry flavor. Near insane drinkability. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation. Light dry finish with cherry and almond. I wonder what a bit of aging could add to this.

badlizard (5537) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle. Thanks Jesse! Clear dark garnet red with almost no head. Huge funky sour cherry and musty old oak barrel and wine aroma. Tastes of sour cherry, green apple, citrus, vanilla, and oaky wine barrel with a sweet yet tart finish. Good smooth velvety palate. Very good.

Pours a gorgeous ruby red with a pink head. Ludicrously fruity aroma, billowing notes of cherry pie, black cherry yogurt and brown sugar. Flavor is a bit less potent with the sweet cherry notes, but there’s still a lot of fruit along with bitter almond, peach pit, citric and lactic acidity. Really lovely beer.
