Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear light amber golden color with an off white head. Aroma is quite tart with hints of cherry and wine. Flavor is also very tart. Cherries a bit more present in the taste. Light sour lingers into the finish. Delicious.

@Basunen: Mycket fina körsbärstoner och en ganska trevlig syrlighet. Mycket välbalanserad. Nästan i klass med Cantillon Kriek. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Red brown. Aroma is vinegar, malt - looks and smells like a classic flanders red. Lovely so far. Taste is perfect sour level - outstanding straight up sour i’ve had. Malt is so well balanced and barrel aging adds but not overpowering. Overall, a classic beer.

bursprak (400) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2014
Corked and caged 375 ml bottle from pushkinwow. Pours hazy brown/amber with a small beige head. Aroma is vinegar, red berries, sour apples and some vanilla. Taste is nicely balanced and not overly tart. I get cherries, raspberries, green apples, vanilla with some oaky flavours to it. Very nice and balanced beer!

Jesterdeal (1789) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle shared by bruce. Aroma is oak, cherries, and slight vinegar. Pours dull red with a big fizzy head and some red chunks of cherry. Taste is light and slightly funky with fresh cherry, sour wine, strong oak, and red grape. Very subtle but full bodied. Complex and wonderful.

Bottle pour is a murky copper with a blush of pink and a yellow-tinted thin head. Aroma is cherries and grape with a lot of sour. Taste is acidic with cherries and hints of grape. Lots of carbonation. Tart acidic finish. Big attention-getting flavor. Great sour.

Huge thanks to VanS for the bottle! Pours copper with light tan head. Aroma is sour cherry, grapes, and red wine. Taste is all sour, with great cherry and red wine flavors. A dry finish and long after taste that sits in your mouth for a long while. Terrific sour ale.

Part of a special "barrel" week at The Beer Junction. $4 for a 4oz pour, 7% ABV. Rich, red-copper color. Tremendous lace sticking to the glass. Aroma was a bit sour and unfortunately, I think I was picking up hints of the sanitation in the glass. Flavor had a mild puckering tang, no hop bitterness and not too sweet. Carbonation was average and viscosity was above average. Delicious aftertaste. This was worth the price for a special treat.

Bottle once again due to jonnyguns being a gentleman. Pours murky dark ruby with a khaki head. Immediate aroma of sour cherries and grapes, musky dark fruits, lemons, molasses and burnt caramel. Wow, what a nose. Flavours are upfront sweet and sour - lots of vinous flavours mixed with sour tartness. Almost has a Belgian style malt character - molasses again, dark caramel and fruits. Dry finish leaves you so thirsty for more. Fucking good beer.
