Bank-account-breaking 12.7 oz. export bottle - Just won the lottery, so I thought I would try this out. It’s a fun journey, but when it’s all said and done the flavors don’t meld well for me--quite pointed and rough. Mostly sour and dry. Looks like I’m going against the grain on this one.

Pours a deep purple body with a thin head. Nice aroma of cherries. Very nice taste, rich of cherries and a well balanced sourness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kavu (2909) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2015

Silvan7 (863) - Samarate, ITALY - JUL 24, 2015
bottle @ home. rosso rubino, velata, con schiuma rosata, non troppo fine e non molto persistente. Aroma intenso, fruttato di ciliegia, vaniglia, legno, terra, luppolo vecchio, vino rosso. Gusto dolce amabile all’ ingresso. acida, fruttata con prevalenza di frutti rossi ma con tendenze agrumate. legno, vaniglia. amaro il finale. Estremamente equilibrata, bel bilanciamento tra acido dolce e amaro. Corposa, spigolosa senza risultare "difficile" , molto carbonata, calore alcolico appena accennato.

bartlebier (2559) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2015
37,5cl bottles, latest base for this rating bb2033. Luscious deep ruby-pink pour with pink foam. Vibrant damp lemon, some cellar wood funk, almond pit and sour stone cherry merge on wafts of young blue cheese. Taste is not overwhelmingly rich on cherry nor on yoghurt, but on a tittillating champagne dry mouthfeel, old lemon rind and red berry pips make for very refreshing sipping. Missing a tad of depth to make it on par with world class like 3F or Girardin, but very approachable, especially for its supra par 6,5%.

MrOrla (694) - Odense C, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours Hazy red with a small dense pink head. Aroma of leather, cherry, tarty. Taste is Cherry, leather, a bit viniuos, but fades quickly. Still very drinkable.

NordicV (1386) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2015
Röd öl med rosa skum. Doft av sura körsbär, vinäger, trä och lite källare. Samma i smaken. En bra kriek.

HoppyBudgie (833) - SOLA, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2015
Hazy red colour, large rosé coloured head. Aroma of hcerries. Dusty hops in the background, acid cherry flavour in the foreground, slightly malty, sour with a decent amount of sweetness. Very nice.

Dermi (769) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2015
37.5 cl, bottled. Pours dark ruby with a small white head. Aroma: Strawberry, cherries, bubblegum. Taste: Medium sweet, pleasant gentle acidity. Some slight tobacco flavours and bitterness. Palate: Medium body, refreshing carbonation. Good, quite balanced, could have some more character. Still very much enjoyable.

Belle couleur rouge avec un rose. Aromes de bonbons a la cerises, un peu de bois. C’est pas mauvais.

Sarapeaches1990 (22) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Cherries and lambic so well balanced love the oak and horsey with some complete cheesiness. Finishes very dry and mouth puckering cherries and citric acid. Brett startling to pop through.
