From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Nice sour cherry beer, but not as good as the best examples from Belgium.

Botella 37.5 cl en el momento en llamas el 16-08-2015. De 2d2espuma (r249) color rojizo con espuma blanca también algo rojiza. Aromas y sabores ácidos con toques ligeros de frutos rojos y cerezas y ligeros toques de caramelo. Bastante buena dentro de su estilo.

bytemesis (4765) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle, 2012. Pours clear candy apple ruby, large pink head, dissipates slowly with nice residual and nice lacing. Aroma is cherry, funk, ham(?!?). Flavor is a lot of cherries, light sweet, light tart, very light funkiness, stems, skins, cherry flesh, a bit of horseblanket, but then more cherries. Whoa on the cherries, man. Medium body, high carbonation.

Svesse (6967) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2015
(Bottle) Clear red colour with lasting, frothy, pinkish head. Fruity, sourish nose with notes of cherries, almonds, red fruit, hints of cellar and barnyard. Fruity, tart taste with sour cherries, almonds, pink grapefruit and a dry and tart finish. More than medium body, really dry. Tasty, with a fresh sourness. Quite clean, and possibly lacking some of the funky complexity of the best traditional lambics. Still, very nice.

Senka (923) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 20, 2015
375cl. Just opened. BBE 10/05/22 aroma of an old cask, cherry bark, cherry resin and cherry blossoms. Pours clear Rosé with champagne head. Barrel numbness and dryness. Some cherry, some yeast. What is extremely addictive is the yeasty seddiment - it is gently, dry and numbing, but not extremely sour. Once its gone, you carve more, but there is none... A bitt watery, and much closer to sparkling wine than beer. Strongly carbonated. Overall: cork does not hold. Check your bottles.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 15, 2015
From notes. Tasted in December 2012 from a capped 375mL bottle purchased at Louisville Beer Store during Zwanze Day 2012. Pours hazy dark pink with a thick pink head that leaves average lace. The nose is all about dry, bright red cherry with some added malt and plenty of lemon peel. The flavor is not terribly sour, but very dry, tons of natural cherry, and just a touch of lemon bitterness. The body is medium with some sticky tannin, average carbonation, and a long tart cherry and lightly bitter finish.

Tasted at the Triple Rock Sour and Barrel Aged Fest on 2/10/2013. This Lambic pours a medium reddish color from the bottle. Medium sized head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, tart and funky. A medium bodied lambic. The malts are fruity and sweet, tart and funky. The hops are herbal. Tart cherry flavors. Nice balance. Good acidity. Decent carbonation. Very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is tart and a little funky.

Butters (3967) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Bright red pour with quick fading pink head. Tart and bretty cheesey kriek. Cherry fruit, but only dark and faint, not pungent or sweet at all. Not sour at all, just slightly tart and EXTREMELY dry on the palate. Nothing I would need to have again, but not bad.
