UPDATED: AUG 24, 2007 Draft. Dark amber body with red highlights, off-white head. The aroma is cherries, vinous, balsamic and oak.The flavor is sweet and vinous with plenty of cherry, slightly sour. The mouthfeel is light and sparkling. Much softer than the Grand Cru, but still good.

kramer (5912) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2006
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark chestnut with reddish tinges. Small beige head with decent retention. Aroma is wonderfully tart and lightly acidic. Notes of sour cherries, powdery pixie stix sugar, and some oak. Flavor is moderately tart with an acidic bite up front. The finish is drying with some oak tannins, and cherry pits. Missing some of the complexities and earthinss of the Grand Cru. Overall, this is a classic that almost defines the style. A sort of dumbed down version of the Grand Cru, but very very drinkable despite the lesser complexity.

Dedollewaitor (15580) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 24, 2006
Red brown with little white fizzy head. Bier rouge style. Of course very sour but has some sweetness as well. A lot easier to drink than the grand cru edition. Refreshing in the summer! Great and exiting!

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 16, 2006
750 ml corked bottle. Red amber colour with a lasting fizzy tan head. Fruity and acidic, lightly oaked, light balsamic aroma. Acidic, juicy cherries and other berries, mellow sourness plus some yeast and dusty character. Light bodied but very refreshing.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2013 2013-06-17. Crisp dark red brown body, small off white head. Aroma of cherry fruit, light cherry pits and a cherry syrup undertone. Flavour of cherry fruit, lightly tart and tangy around the edges. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Decent,relatively simple. 7/4/7/3/14 - 3.5 On tap at Bar Hop, Toronto

2006-04-XX. Lightly hazy brown body with a small creamy beige head. (3+) Light fruity sour cherry aroma is a touch muted but pleasant. Flavour has a mild malt base, but with light fruity cherry that is pleasantly sour and tart throughout. Subtly pleasant and restrained, in contrast to the Grand Cru which I don’t particularly care for. Much more palatable and accessible. Average palate. 6/4/8/3/16 - 3.7

Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - APR 8, 2006
Pours reddish with a foamy white head. Aroma is kick your face in vinegar, and some sweet sugar. Flavor is like the skin on a grape, with a bit of alcohol. Nice balanced sour ale.

aracauna (3511) - Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2006
This pours hazy, the color of a tarnished penny. Soy, slight vinegar in the aroma. It’s a touch sweet in the flavor. Good stuff. Not too harsh, but bracingly tart.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Bottle: Burnt caramel, deep ruby hues, moderate sand colored head, somewhat fizzy, fairly nice lacing.   Oaken nose, subtle unripened cherries.   Tart on the tongue, definite oak like dryness, but the cherry aspect is very muted as compared to the oak.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Dry starchy finish, leaves a coating on the tongue and teeth that isn’t all that pleasant.   Decent, but needs to be a bit more fruity for me to take real interest.
