11.2 @ Whole Foods, Palm Beach(PGA) Picked this up while swooning over a 750ml of Dutchess...but I figured, Id give this a shot first since Iíve had the Dutchess. Well, itís good, but not Dutchess good. ....or better yet, Dutchess powerfull. The nose is good, and not overbearing so you donít have to hold it going in. Vinegaríd cherries in a rather bubbly fizz. loverly dark cherry/black cherry colour. This was pretty good and easy to start out with. I think for someone unable to stomach the Dutchess, this would be a worthy substitute.

I donít remember who brought this to Paulís party, but thanks.

Poured red with an off-white head. Aroma is decent sour cherries. Taste is tart cherries and cinnamon with a dry finish. Somewhat bland.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 13, 2005
Seeiní it: Rosy red is the color, mainly clear, with a proud, fizzy, pinkish head that collapses assuredly, but slowly... Smelliní it: big time cherry, massive sour notes, very vibrant and arousing. Tastiní it: Oooo, wince, pucker, grimace, shudder, ...ahhhh!!! Very tasty, when you enjoy that sensation. Lip smackiní, with a recurring fruity flavor. Brilliantly bitter. Medium bodied, long, fruity, sour finish. Thoroughly spanks the palate, slapping cherry-whips on the tongue. Just delicious.

seamus77 (31) - kansas city, Missouri, USA - OCT 9, 2005
pleasent, soft fruity aroma, reminds me of a french wine that I canít quite place. a beautiful, deep red-brown color, thin head which fades almost immediatly. lightly cherry, nicely balanced but slightly more on the sour than the sweet though not too much of either. light body, slightly effervescent. not much on the finish, but with a slight sweetness that clings to the lips.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Pinkish head. Clear ruby/coppery red body, attractive. Sweet bandaids, oaky sweet cherries. Off-cardboard/bbq sauce and twig finish. That type of flavor, is on top of a sweet/sour cherry. Its like they tried to do a Rodenbach Alexander, but, its not as good.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Plum-brown body under a light purple bubbly head. Concentrated sweet cherry aroma with woody, slightly vinegary, medicinal notes. The flavor has a weak, astringent malt backing with the same over-sweet cherries. Lots of skin tannins as well. This is a dumbed-down flemish sour, sort of like Lindemanís Kriek.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Pours to a odd red-hued brown with a thin white head. The aroma is lots of fermented cherries, vinegar, menthol, and oak. The flavor is strange, apple cider vinegar? Oak. To me, the palate is one of the redeeming qualities of this beer. I love Flemish Sours when theyíre good, but this isnít one of them. I want more Panil!

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2005
reddish pinkish brown color w/ a light pink head. a tart aroma, sour cherries touches of metalic very sweet some bandaids. Light palate somewhat carbonated very light. A fairly bad flavor fermented cherry a touch stale overly sweet. blah.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2005
pours a dark cranberry red, almost looks like a glass of fruit juice except for a thin fizzy head that disappears rapidly. vinegar, sour apple and sweet cherry in the aroma, which was not overwhelming in its sourness. flavor was very much the same, all the elements were there, but were balanced very well and actually ended with a crisp tartness, rather than an extreme sourness.
