matthewjk (966) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bank-account-breaking 12.7 oz. export bottle - Just won the lottery, so I thought I would try this out. Itís a fun journey, but when itís all said and done the flavors donít meld well for me--quite pointed and rough. Mostly sour and dry. Looks like Iím going against the grain on this one.

Bulk_Carrier (2572) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2015
This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a pure pink color with a fairly thick white foamy head. As the head dissipated, a semi-slim lacing slid down the glass. The smell started off with a nice sour to tart cherry that sweetens as it warms. The flavor starts off with the same sour to tart cherry. As it starts to warm, it gets a slightly sticky sweet fruity aftertaste with a semi wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. A crisp settling refreshingness rolls over my palate sweetly. Overall, I say this was a wonderful fruit lambic that I would love to have again.

bursprak (1161) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2015
Bottle split two ways. Deep red pour with a small pinkish head. Nose has lots of tart cherries and some light vanilla. Taste is tart, funky, cherries, cherry pits, almonds and vanilla with some leathery notes.

nearbeer (4050) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 13, 2015
375 ml. bb 10 04 2034. Pours ruby red with a billowing pink meringue of foam. Nose is luscious cherry, raspberry, raisin, earthy must, bread and some oak. Flavors of dark cherry, cabernet and toasted oak. Also some surprising, occasional and pleasant hints of beefsteak and fresh oysters. Medium body has medium-high carbonation and a slight astringency that provides a very drinkable nod to the dry side.

mergels (7) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 7, 2015 does not count
Red with quickly fading pinkish head. Aroma very sour but berry-fruity, notes of wood too, well done on that part. Taste as expected but not surprising, sour, tart, musty, a tad bit funky. Lively carbonation, dry palate, long lasting cherry taste finish. Pretty decent!

venom666 (521) - Elche, SPAIN - MAY 7, 2015
Clear red color with pink head that quickly fades. Medium carbonated. Funiky aroma, full of sour cherries, almonds and a woody hint. Sour cherries also dominate the flavour, with almonds and a doog tartness on the aftertaste. Very refrshing.

Bottle. Dark ruby with a pretty pinkish head. Aroma is sour cherry and musty funk. Taste adds a little vinegar and wood. Medium acid content, pleasantly tart. Mouthfeel is a little buttery with some spritzy carb. Very nice.
