Geiserich (3613) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUN 2, 2005
Bottled:
Sourly aroma, medium strong cherry note. Brillant red color. Flavor is light sourly with remarkable cherry flavor, that isn’t dominant. End is astringent with light notes of bitter almonds. Nice, but a hint to sweet.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2005
Light sour cherry aroma. Hazy red in colour with a small pink head. Sweet cherry start with a sour and slightly woody finish. Refreshing cherry beer.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2005
Sample courtesy of Pailhead. Pours dark ruby color with only ring of bubbles. Sour vinegar and tart cherry aroma and flavor. Leaves long aftertaste, but dry at the smae time if that makes any sense.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 20, 2005
33 cl bottle. Red color with a small pinkish head. Aroma is cherry all right with some brett detected also. Taste is more cherry soda than a Flemish Sour. Too many good beers in this category for this to be close to those.

Crockett (1029) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2005
Pours clear read with a little foamy pink head. Berries and cherry. Lemon cherry popsicle. Cherry cough drops and cinnamon in the finish. Fairly sour, not particularly sweet. Decent.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 10, 2005
Poured a clear ruby/mahogony. Aroma of horse blanket and tart cherry with some woodiness. flavors of sweet and tart cherry and light oak. Medium body

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2005
Pours red with a thin white head. Aroma very apparent of cherries and maybe vanilla also. Nice, tart lambic flavor and cherry is not too sweet like some Krieks. Slight amount of the oak flavor, but once again not overdone like some oak-aged brews. Well carbonated and dry mouthfeel. Pretty nice!

Pailhead (5424) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2005
Bottle: Tary cherry aroma. Pours a deep transparent red with a tan head with a pink tint that fades quickly. Starts rather tart cherry but not as much so in the finish. Light vinegar in the background.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Rich red with a touch of orange and copper. Aroma isswet with cherry. flavor is full of cherry. Not as sour as I thought it would be. Aftertaste has an affensive funkiness to it.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - MAR 18, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2005 Bottled. Ruby red with no head. Big cherry nose. Malty cherry taste, not really sour at all. Tastes like a cherry soda. Also seems a bit watery. NOt bad but far from being my favorite sour. Re-Rate: Not so watery this time around but still a liitle too sweet for me.
