KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a medium murky chestnut brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) creamy light beige head, that reduced slowly to a thin layer of foam with a collar producing some mighty fine sheeting of sticky lacing. The aroma was bold and fruity with a dark bread malt and some Brett yeast along with some notes of cherry, oak and a bit of red wine. The taste was incredibly sweetly tart and very malty with a slight hint of wine in the beginning, then becoming boldly sour with a nice strong malty cherry presence and a hint of oak at the end. The flavor lasted a very long time allowing for the sour cherry wine flavor to be fully enjoyed as it relaxed on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a solid medium in body with a creamy dry texture and a carbonation reminiscent of champagne. Overall, all that has to be said is WOW what an incredible brew. This brew was most likely one of the best things I have ever put to my lips. Just sayin’...

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 1/16 bottle thanks to Mike. Pours a crystal clear deep amber color with no head. Very okay, heavy sweet cherry notes. Slightly oxidized. Very soft carbonation.

MarcoDL (4104) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2016
Bottle. Copper-ish color. Aroma of sour red fruit, malt, tart, mild vanilla and oak. Taste is quite sour, with red fruit, oak, brett tart, soft red grape, oak and some malt. Body is somewhat thin, finish is long and fruity. Nice, but a bit overrated.

TheJester (2532) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2016
375 mL bottle. Not a pretty beer. Lotsa sour cherries in the nose. Red wine too. The flavour is a punch in the mouth, with no apologies. Lotsa cherries in the flavour too. Malt vinegar, red wine, brown sugar, medicine. Dry. Outstanding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mesjasz (998) - Lodz, POLAND - AUG 28, 2016
Russian River Suplication - aromat dziki, bardzo rustykalny z lekkim wspomnieniem wiśni. Pachnie jak typowy lambik. Smak średnio kwaśny lekko octowy, wisniowy, agrestowy, cytrynowy, winny.

DocJitsu (1684) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2016 Tart nose, tart flavor. Seems a lot like a Granny Smith apple lying on the ground. Really don’t get the allure to people who enjoy drinking this.

Bottle batch 100815. Cherries filled the air with a loud pop. Cherries and sour nose. Flavor matches but some wood as well. Smooth. Absolutely lovely!

375ml bottle at Brian’s (thx, Brian!). Bottled on 08-Oct-2015. Sour aroma brings out lots of cherries, wine barrels, funk. Taste is the same character, very smooth. Perfect.

Mortlach (1920) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 12, 2016
Bottle shared by ippopotamo36 @King Arthur (Rome), thanks Alberto! Pours reddish with a medium to little white head. Aroma of cherry, pinot noir, barnyard, dust, cellar mold. Flavour is vinous, citric, lactic, lots of red fruits, astringency. High body, medium to light carbonation. Rough and aggressive, but astonishing!
