On draft at HopCat in Ann Arbor. In prep for Rare Day tomorrow. The pour is a dark, dark ruby color with a light pink colored ring of head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma is very sweet. There is cherry present, but it's syrupy and sweet. Candied cherries almost. Light aromas. Heavy syrupy cherry. The flavor is syrupy and sweet. Bleh. There is a nice light tartness on the back end but it's so sweet. It's not right. The mouth feel is thick and syrupy with a light carbonation and a heavy medicinal cherry. The finish is a little dry and lightly tart, but quickly fading. Meh ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vignale (3147) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2015
Flaska från Beergium. Fin rödvinsfärg med rosa skum som snart försvinner. Doft av rejäl laktosyra, syrliga mejeriprodukter, trä, vinäger och söta körsbär. Inte jättesur eller jättesöt utan ganska bra balanserad men definitivt åt det lite sötare hållet, fin syra, lite träig eftersmak, generellt ganska snäll och trevlig.

Zlotta (1587) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2015 0.25 l bottle from De Bierkoning, best before 23/12/2018. Clear, deep red with a medium large, fluffy, slowly diminishing, pinkish white head. Sweetish-sourish, fruity and minimally funky aroma of sour cherries, bitter almond, raspberries, red wine and oak. Sweetish-sourish, fruity and minimally funky taste of cherries, red wine, oak and hints of sherbet powder, followed by a medium long, slightly vinous, oaky and tart finish. Thin to medium body, astringent and effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Maybe a tad too sweet to convince completely, but this is very delicious. I still would have liked the fruitiness to be more subtle in favour of the base beer’s characteristics. Nevertheless good.

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

ryecatcher (1291) - 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.
