Une bière agréable, fraîche et fruitée, idéale pour se désaltérer avec un beau fruit et la tension d’une sour ale.

ryecatcher (1237) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Bottle. Reddish amber pour, pink tinted frothy head. Nose is cherries, fruity funk, minerals, cider, some diacetyl notes. Mouth is medium bodied, tart up front, fruit forward, then sweetens up mid-range. Balsamic, woody, cherries, mildly medicinal, band aids. Finished a little too sweet for my taste.

suprchunk (2860) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2015
My wife loves this one. Cherry brown pour. Small tannish head. Little lacing. Aroma of something resembling cherries. Taste is a sweetly sour type of deal. Some fruity notes kind of like cherries.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - AUG 10, 2015
Pinkish with a small frothy head. Cherries, prunes, vinegar, light wood. Medium sweet and light tart. Not as sour as an oude kriek, lots of fruit, quenching and well made.

bytemesis (6001) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Bottle shared by Brian - thanks! Pours clear burnt umber with a reddish tint, small beige head, good lacing. Aroma is oaky, hint of nail polish, cherries. Flavor is light sweet, light tart, very lightly funky, some nail polish remover here, along with cherries. Medium body, high carbonation. Not bad; easy to drink.

TET (2431) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2015
A beautiful, dark red colour, a head is almost medium and pink. Aroma has strong cherries, sourness, some balsamico and barrel. Taste has natural cherries, some raspberries and barrel, medium sourness is balancing and thus the beer isn’t too sweet. Medium bodied, sparkling carbonation. Good beer, natural cherries.
