Muddy red-rust, thin white head, some lace. Aroma is of cherries, light tartness, some funk. Flavour is of some cherry tartness, small acidic, some fruit sweetness. Lightly acidic mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, light tartness. Pretty nice stuff.

Was expecting something much lighter and instead got this gem. Cloudy ruby body with pinkish airy head. Aroma of fruit, wood and yeast. The yeast takes over in the taste, subduing the sweet cherries to the background. Dry and tart finish.

Now this is very good. I’m not a hug fan of lambic. Spontanale was a bit too funky for me. But here the sweet, sour cherry notes work perfectly with the sharp yeast. Delicious - I begin to see why Belgian beer is so popular.

10/5/2014. From bottle. Pours reddish brown with a pinkish head. Funky yeast aromas with sour cherries. Not overly tart and the cherry flavors are nicely balances and not artificial as in some other beers in this style. Very elegant!

Tydelig surhed i duft og smag. Fornemmer kirsebær. Lidt tynd i kropoen. Lidt kedelig.

storskurk (119) - DENMARK - SEP 27, 2014
Den dufter flygtigt af kirsebær men kun i strofer. Kortvarigt kan det forveksles med opvaskemiddel :-/. En frisk mælkesyre og flot rosa skum over i det rødlige. Øllet er blodappelsinfarvet. Har baggrundsmateriale af kirsebærsten. Tydelig frugt ift spontancranberry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MPA (828) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. Red with off white head. Notes of cherries and tartness. Sweet flavour of cherries with some tartness, but overall too sweet for me. I prefer the more tart examples.

"Probably pricey enough to be a one timer, but it was pretty damn good. Well balanced between the sour funk aroma and fruity cherry. Beautiful ruby red pour. Tingly feel. Flavor equal parts cherry and funk with just enough stinky cheese man to notice. Plenty I fruit but no sweetness. Dry, lasting sour finish."

Leicht trübes rötliches Bierm mit geringer pinken Schaumkrone. Geruch fruchtig, säuerlich, reife Kirschen. Geschmack säuerlich, leicht fruchtig, wenig Geschmack.

Bottle: Murky copper with a red glare; burnt amber edges. Mild beige & light lavender tinted head sifts softly on top. Big musty lemon, sour cherry skin, & woody oak aroma. Nice amount of funk, wet hay, corky barnyard, mild sweat. Lightest hint of vinegar behind the sour cherry & acidic lemon notes. Taste is dry & full of oak. Tannic, with a big punch of hay funk, cork, sour lemon candy, acidic cherry skin, & ripe fruit. Definitely tart, borderline puckering, leading into an exceedingly dry finish. Huge woody aftertaste with a lingering cherry skin flavor. I really seem to enjoy Mikkeller’s Spontan- lineup more than most.
