Bottle shared by Randall. Reddish brown pour with an off white head. Sour cheery aromas. This is one tart ass mofo… Dour cherry notes dominate. Vinegar and caramel malt backbeats. Acidic. Average body and mouthfeel.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown ruby with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a strong oak, cherry skins, and funk. Medium mouthfeel with strong tartness and sour cherry, strong acidic finish. Very sour and very good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle Reserve Society shared with Adam. Dark ruby brown color with super thin white head. Nose is Kriek cherries, lots of tart cherries with some oak barrel. Taste is absolutely a Rodenbach yeast strain. Sharp acidic notes and tart cherries, cherries puree. Damn, tons and tons of tart, sour cherries, really intense cherry. Has anybody mentioned that they taste cherry in this brew? It almost gives an acid reflux. Heat burn… I guess in a good way? If you like intense sour brews, this is for you all the way. Not for the weak hearted. Awesome

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
RS release. Split 2 ways with Chris. 750ML 2013 release in a snifter.
A - Pours dark brown but with this really nice redness out of the glass. In the glass, cherry red, almost no head but a bit foamy. Maroon / blood red.
S - Smells like a rodenbach but with a huge amount of fresh cherry like way more than you’d expect. Whoa.
T - Whoa. Jammy, sweet and tart fruit. Loads of cherries like they overwhelm everything else. Oude Tart is still there but whoa. I could easily drink a 750 of this.
M - Crisp and sharp carbonation and acidity
O - this is great..easily twice as good as regular oude tart. I want more of this NOW!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark, black cherry color. Oaky + fruity, concentrated, like a blend of 3F kriek, boon kriek, and an oaky American sour. Plenty sour, perhaps a bit overly so.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, dark reddish brown pour with thin off white head, aroma brought big notes of sour cherry, dark berry, hints of oak, slight vanilla, hints of slight vinous notes, some cinnamon and other spices. Taste is a mix of big tart lemon, sour cherry, nice vanilla, cinnamon, slight oak, hints of spice, touch of caramel, finishing very tart, more cherries. Nice.
