adnielsen (9247) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Bottle @ Dan’s house, courtesy of camons. Thanks René! A touch violet, red appearance with an off white head. Effervescent, mild cherry, dark berry, somewhat tangy, light funky aroma. A touch young berry, mild cherry, tangy lemon, tart, barnyard, dry, a touch earthy flavor. My least favorite of the bunch.

arminjewell (6293) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Pour out of glass is reddish pink with white head, thanks Renee! Aroma brings notes of cherry pie, sweet fruit and biscuit notes, hints of lemon, slight funk, slight oak and caramel. Taste is a mix of cherry and lemon going quickly into bitter grass and earth, touch of funky earth, finishing very dry and pretty bitter.

bottle @ ACBF 2011
Beautiful reddish color with no foaming. The smell is cherry-like and very sour. Starts dominantly sour, with pleasant aromas of sour cherries. The finish is long drawn Geuze-like sour, a little cherry flavor is noticeable.

Second actual lambic I’ve had after the Spontanframboos, and I enjoyed that one a bit more. Sample pours a lightly cloudy, light amber-reddish. The aroma was nice, though. Tart, sour, good cherry notes, slightly funky but not overly sour. Definitely enjoyable for having just started on lambics.

This beer reminds me why I love fruit beer. Mikkeller can nail any style, always impressed. Had this one on new years day courtesy of of SleepyLopes. Great label. Cherry nose. Tart cherry flavor, balanced bubbly carbonation, short finish.

harrisoni (13828) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2011
At ACBF 2011. Clear red. thin white head. It’s got some cherry, it’s got some dryness. Very drinkable, but not got that wow factor.

Deep pink-red with candy sugar, cobwebs and cherry stones on the nose. Initially sweet with restrained sourness and medium length finish.

shoulderbroken (2105) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 19, 2011
Bottle at home brought back from Copenhagen. Aroma is sharp cherry, with a bit of sherbert. Nice kriek colour and pleasant fizziness. Taste is cherry of course, but quite like the sweet cherry drops. Very nice sourness which rises at the end. Very nice beer, but pales a little in comparison with the lambic biggies.
