2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: An oaky cherry pie in a bottle with an acidic finish. Ok.
How: Bottle 330ml. Exact age unknown, probably about 1 year old. Given to me by reakt, thanks a lot Angelo
The look: Cloudy shining red body topped by a very small pink head
In long: Nose is lightly sour, some cherries, some phenols. The crisp and sweet malt base has the flavor of a crunchy pie crust. Add to that the cherry jelly flavor and youíve got yourself a cherry pie, which is pretty much what this beer tastes like except for some oak and the rather acidic finish that I could have done without. Classified as a Sour Ale, I more or less agree, but thatís hard one to pigeonhole. This had some potential but to me the tart acidic finish ruined the experience. Oh well, this was a disappointment. But big boys like me donít cry. We eat.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very dark bordeaux red, small pink head. Smell is very sour-cherish, caramel. Sweet spiced. Sour-fruity taste with some yeast comming up. Not bad, but itís completly not my style of beer. Way to much sourness, to much cherish...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Spicy, pitty cherry aroma, with some hibiscus, and an air of autobody shop. Nice balance of acids in the flavor, not puckeringly sour but definitely a good amount, with more cherry pit and cinnamon. A bit heavy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours red, no head. Notes of cherries and bacteria in aroma. The taste starts out sour, but ends sweet of cherries with a vinous touch. A simple and easy to drink sour ale without any real character.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The pour reveals a cloudy red color with a medium pinkish head. The aroma is slightly sour with a good dose of cherries and brettanomyces, itís very appealing. The flavor is solid, itís sour with a nice balance between the cherries and the brettanomyces. The body is light with an oily texture and lively carbonation. This blend is an amazing success, which isnít too surprising knowing the competence of the breweries involved.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy deep reddish color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of cherry and oak is quiet interesting with a great balance between sweetness and tart notes. Taste is also a very nice mix between some tart cherries with some balance sweetness with a solid malt backbone. Body is fuller then average with good carbonation and no alcohol was perceptible. Very well done overall and better then I would have expected.
