375 ml bottle to stem glass (shared with the Mrs.). Bottled on 2013/07/10. Looks good; a translucent dark amberish brown with light pink head. Smells of cherry with a bit of a medicinal presence. Pleasant though. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Solid, but soft, and a bit sweeter than I prefer for the style.

375 ml. bottled 2013/07/10. Pours a cabernet color with an enduring purple-pink disc of cream on top. Nose is tart and sweet cherry, lemon and a touch of funky wood. Flavor is dark cherry vinegar, earthy notes of brown sugar and wood. A rich plum-like creaminess on the finish adds some depth and rounds off the sour nicely. Medium body has plenty of acidic tingle and medium carbonation. Not a huge sourness, but plenty enough for me.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Reddish burgundy, with a ring of foam. Smells like cherry balsamic vinegar. Taste is more cherry than sour, but still plenty of sour flavors. Nicely rich, as well.

Mixed fruit soup. Not exactly to my taste. Would receive better points in cider assesment.

MrHangover (2766) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Pours a dark purple, clear beer with a small pinkish head on top. Aroma of red fruits, cherries, strawberries. Flavor is medim sour, very fresh and fruity. Dry mouthfeel, medium dry finish. Very decent.

boFNjackson (4176) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle... Poured dark, ruby red with a thin, off-pink head. Sour cherry pie, dry, tart, quite sour with nice candied cherry, and black cherry sweetness. Ripe cherry flavors balance out the acidity quite nicely.

mcberko (7244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 23, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a deep dark pinkish mahogany with a small pink-beige head. Nose is quite funky, with barnyard notes, and loads of unsweetened cherry. Flavour is along the same lines, with barnyard funk, loads of cherries, and a touch of cherries. Medium complexity, with excellent balance and quite a lingering funk. Excellent lambic.

obguthr (4100) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Sweet cherry nose, some cobweb. Ruby red, thick pink head. Very sour cherry, but only at first. Jolly rancher cherry at midpalate. Some phenols. Tangy overall. Delicious.
