Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2005 75 cL bottle. Blood-red colour with large long lasting head. Nice lace. Cherries - especially skin, sour-citric, green grapes, oak, must and dust, dry finale, gets more fruity as it warms. Wonderful mouthfeel... Great.

Very citrusy bite, almost lemony in aroma and initial flavor. The head dissipates quickly, leaving just a bit of lace on the glass and on the top of the beer. Very sour, which hangs on the middle of the tongue. It is reminiscent of a red wine in feeling astringent, but does not actually dry the tongue.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2004
375 mL bottle, lambic flute glass. Body is a deep ruby-red color with fizzy carbonation and a slight haze. Enormous, fluffy, pink head is well lasting and clings to the side of the glass. Bread, straw, hay malt (M); dough, barnyard, cobweb yeast (H); oak, tart cherries, spicy pepper notes. Aroma is very pronounced. Lightly sweet, heavily acidic (sour) flavor becomes a lightly sweet, moderately acidic (sour and sharp) finish. Medium body, creamy/watery texture, fizzy carbonation. The bottom line is: I’ll be buying up some more of this while it is still available.

From a 375 ml bottle. I had a small explosion when the cork popped off. Poured with a large light pink head. The body was a very dark red. The aroma was sour vinegar and hay. Also, small amounts of cheese and cherries. The taste was slightly cheesy at first. Then cherries, hay and tart apple vinegar. I am beginning to appreciate these sour beers more and more.

Deep red coloured. Very nice natural cherry and lambic aroma. Amazingly tasty and refreshing flavour. Sour.

Kinz (3189) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2011 Medium hazy red color, light pinkish head that lasts wonderfully. Aroma has some nice barnyard funk mixed in with sour cherry. Bracing sour cherry flavor, mixed in with a woody note and more barnyard and horseblanket flavors. This is a serious beer. If I can find some more, I will horde them for the long haul. Why must good brewers die? As a side note, I had previously sampled off of a bottle I gave to my wife, and it seemed much sweeter. RERATE: 7/16/11 of a 2006 bottling. Exact same score, this thing has really maintained despite the changes to ownership and age. Still awesome. Really neat at the Richmond Gathering to have the room just go quiet while this one was consumed.

375CL bottle BBD 05.04.2022, SB23 on cork, how old is this?? Pours cherry red that can look deceptively amber or brownish hued...slight pinkish hue to the white head, good bubbles, no lace. Cheesy, leathery cherries...nice horsebarn character, complex nose. Light and to the point: sour, tart cherries. The first impression is that lingering acid mingled w/ cherry pit sourness, it just fills my palate...The fruit is not so dominant as it might have been in a fresh bottle, but its sour cherry pits are in there with those barnyard flavors. I like "joet"s basement flavors comment...a bit gueuze-like, sour and acidic, but not as hardcore as some.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 11, 2004
At tasting with two bottles of this. Both very differnt. (Same tasting as my friend Fly) The first bottle’s cork damn near put our host’s eye out! Beautiful red in color. Very creamy. Lots of head with lacing. Very sour and dry. Chalk in the finish.

This beer is excellent. Pours a blood red color with a medium white head. Very lively carbonation. Aroma is cherry tart, sweet and sour with some citrus. Flavor is very complex. Cherry, sour, orange, barnyard, with some other flavor I’m having trouble pinning down. Body is spritzy and dry with a medium to long finish. Wow, this beer is seriously great.
