3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2006 (Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm 29 Apr) Colour is deep red, with a thick pink head. Nose is acidic and sour with hints of cherry. Taste is very acidic and harsh with hints of cherries and rhubarb. Too much carbonation leaves a prickly mouthfeel. A nice try at some serious lambic making, but not particularly complex.
2) (Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm 16 May 2006) Colour is dark red, almost ruby, pink foamy head. Nose is fruity and acidic with cherries and hints of almonds. Taste is very acidic, a bit harsh, with a nice cherry taste and hints of almonds. The cask version was slightly better and more complex than the draught version. Good stuff.

[3311-20100808] Tap. Rich wood-matured cherries aroma with notes of Belgian yeast. Slightly hazy, dark ruby red body with no lasting head. Muted wood flavour is mostly sour cherry yeast then a few seconds later is a soft cereal finish and lingering aftertaste. Medium-full body is quite sour. Quite tasty, very drinkable.

@WSF. Opaque burgundy or reddish-brown. Interesting malty aroma, smells almost like a Flemish sour. Lots of grain/malt and husk in the aroma. Sikly low carbonation and soft palate. Nice lactic touch is lip-puckering, tart, and yogurty. Acidic but nice. One of the more pungent, sharp ones but I like it.

Tap, DHVL. Pours a flat ruby red body with zero head, looks beautiful and bright. The nose is nicely funky with lots of fresh sweet smelling cherry fruit. The flavor is just lightly tart with minimal acidity. Nicely sweet on the middle, fading to a dry and woody finish. Mouthfeel is fairly flat, but there’s a touch of liveliness to it. Fruity but dry with a slight tannic finish. Very nice starter for my session at DHVL!

Tap @ Bazi Bierbrasserie... Poured deep reddish with a thick, off-white head that had a mild pinkish tint to it. Dry, decent carbonation, grenadine flavors with cherry skins, candied malt, loads of sweetness and a tart yeast character. Straight forward, not overly complex but still lovely drinking. Very soda pop in character.
