Leighton (17812) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2011
Bottle at The Funky 7, Brooklyn. Pours hazy, red-brown with a moderate, off-white head. Aroma holds plenty of tart cherries, some grassy hops, light funk. Medium sweet flavor, some malts, lots of cherries, some hints of raspberries, brett, wood. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a stinging tartness. Tart, sweet finish, more cherries, light funk, light dryness, some acidity. Very good American sour beer.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle … Fantômepalooza 2011… Pours cloudy and light brown with no head. The fruity aroma furnishes raw white oak, bourbon, caramel and yes, cherries. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor is all about sour cherries, caramel and raw oak. Finishes tart, tangy and sandy – dries out. Bottle courtesy of Dstructo!

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bought bottle at kokoman, a store that does not store its beer as well as possible but anyway it pours a nice color but is murky and has no head. Red-brown like a Flemish brown. In fact the aroma follows with rodenbach character and mellow, deep cherry-impacted wood. Comes across as thin and lacking depth, but I attribute that also to the poor storage conditions. But there is really nothing not to like. We have subdued, disciplined acidity, characterful wood tannins, and natural fruit sweetness for balance. Very drinkable and would like to have again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ads135 (4011) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Tart and sweet, though mostly tart. Bright red, medium body, and sour. A good blend of Krieks, the oak aging is palpable. 5/22/2011.

nsquishee (637) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Sweet and fruity sour beer aroma with hints of cherry and raspberry. Cloudy pink-brown color. Tastes tart and sweet. Highly carbonated- maybe a bit too much carbonation. Very sour and tart finish. Flavors of raspberry, cherry, tannin, and wheat. I think if this had a chance to age a bit, the carbonation and super tartness would even out a bit.

Travlr (20350) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle. Hazy bright amber color, large fluffy white head. Nice aroma of sour peaches, apricot, and of course cherries and raspberries. Taste is softly sour summer fruits, grapefruit, citrus. Very nice indeed.

Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2011
Murky amber red color with a head that doesn’t linger for very long. Aroma is very intense with lots of vinegary goodness laced with cherry and raspberry. Also some candy-like notes with winegum. Lots of focus on vinegar, fruits and oak while leaving the yeasts in the background. Some thick, belgian sweetness as well. Taste is very chewy with a candy-winegum sweetness chased by a fairly strong sourness laced with cherry and strawberry. Not a whole lot of tart, leaving it resembling a sour ale more than a kriek. Still, extremely enjoyable..

Bottle shared at TOSPH. Reddish brown pour with an off white head. Cheery and wood aromas. I found it to be a bit watery with sour cherry, wood, vanilla, and tart funk notes. Thanks Dak...

deyholla (9835) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Bottle thanks to Scott! Pours a hazy deep ruby red with a gray head that dissipates quickly and completely. Aroma is full of sweet cherries with a bit of acidity backing and a bit of funk as well as a bit of oak. Flavor has a good amount of cherries that are mainly sweet with a bit of tartness and backed by oak and a hint of funk.
