Tasting at Chez Bruce. Hazy red - brown beer, small pale tan head. Airy palate with fine carbonation. Nice tart cherry, not too sharp. Cherry compote. Whispers of lemon and balsamic on the crisp finish. Decent.

Theydon_Bois (8743) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle split at Bruce’s pad, with thanks to Bruery fanboy Kenneth, 28/05/14. Murky reddish brown with moderate off white spotting. Nose is tarte cherries, hint of dank wood, dry rot, tangy red berries. Taste comprises bitter citric rinds, tarte cherries, nice level of acidity, oaky wash, fruit balsams, earthy, dank hay. Medium bodied, fine carbonation. Solid Flemish red - ticks all my boxes.

Leighton (11101) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Master Mitch. Pours clear, amber-brown with a creamy tan head. Big acetic berry nose, some wood, cherry, prune. Medium sweet with good acetic burn, slight vinegar, juicy cherry, some berry pits. Medium bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Lightly warming finish with some more acetic burn, lightly dried berries. Nice beer. Good and sour.

Scopey (6908) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle thanks to Kenny. It pours dark brown with a small tan head. The nose is earthy, wood, vanilla, dried berry, funk, light caramel and toasted coconut. The taste is mouth-puckering tartness, wood, earth, tangy, acidic, sour cherry, cherry cola, sherbet and lemon juice, with a rather tart, dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Typical Bruery sour nose, but tastes is rather good indeed.

Clownoisseur (216) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2014
On tap at The Bruery. Poured a ruby red, light pink pecil thin head. Lively carbonation. Almost looked like Ruby Red Squirt! Aromas of very sour cherries, lacto tartness in general....light breads, funk, fresh flowers...very inviting. Taste is definitely on the tart side. I like it. Tons of sour cherry, lemon peel...light funky hay, breads...very nice dry finish. Leaves me wanting more. Extremely drinkable!

Huhzubendah (2580) - Washington DC, USA - APR 29, 2014
Served alongside Oude Tart. Similar appearance to the standard version. Russet to ruby hued with a fizzy beige collar. Lots of sour cherries and oak with ample funk presence. Piquant and intense. Sour cherries take center stage. Puckering finish with a drying oak presence. Medium bodied and palate coating. Delicious.
