Appearance - dark reddish brown. Finger head. Aroma - sweet cherry with a hint of funk. Mouth - medium carb. Semi dry. Taste - mild sour flavor. Has a bit of a cherry syrup flavor. The cherry dominates. Not in my favorite way. Overall - not my thing. A little funky cherry flavor. Not refreshing like other sours.

Bottle. Nose has some must, slightest hint of sour and a full whack of Cherry Bakewell; I’m nervous this is going to be all syrup it smells grim. Taste is a mess; the cherry syrup dominates, with a far too sweet tone that over powers everything until the old bruin kicks in at the finish, but disjointedly. Unpleasant.

Bottle. Deep red/ruby, brownish colour, white head. Lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet cherries, malt and candy sugar, a bit artificial. In taste less sweet, more tart cherries, malt, some oud bruin base is noticable, sour in finish. Medium body and carbonation. In overall quite good, gentle fruit oud bruin.

If you like sour this is it! Fruity stays with you throughout the taste. Definitely a select palate of sour.

cherry and woody aroma... the taste is the mix of fruity (cherry) ale and the sour lambic fermented with wild yeast... dry bitter aftertaste...

Dark ruby, small, light pink head. Cherry aroma and flavour. Not much "sour" here, more like a fruit beer - or even a cherry coke...

Tap. Poured deep reddish brown with a pinkish head. Aroma of sweet cherries. Medium body, flavour is overly sweet and cloying.

33cl bottle form local Plus supermarket. Clear reddish brown with a medium slightly off-white head. Medium body with light to moderate carbonation. Sweet with some sour and bitter tones. Red fruits, tart, herbs and some wood. Although it starts a tad too sweet it has quite a rich flavour, not too bad at all.

Sample at Hopfest 2014. Comes reddish brown with a small pinkish head. Aroma of fruit, malt, and wood. Taste is tart cherries, sweet cherries, malt, and oak. Kind of confusing.

This is a flemish sour with cherries, but somehow the sourness got lost. What’s left is a malty beer with sweet cherries, like a fruit beer. Bummer.
