Lukaduke (2793) - Gray, Maine, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Pours a brown ruby color with a two finger pink foam. On the nose its got some sweet cherry pie notes, touches of warm spice and a little bit of wet wood and earthy notes. The palate is ripe cherry, round malts, touch of tartness and some rustic wood on the late palate.

Cristobal37 (465) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 20, 2015
Funky yeast and sweet cherries on the nose. Light refreshing and spritzy, vinegar, lemon juice, sweet cherries and then a cheesy basement flavor. Finish is creamy cherries and fruity strawberries.

kapusil (889) - HUNGARY - NOV 20, 2015
0.25l bottle. Slightly hazy deep ruby body, pink head. Aroma of sour cherry, funk and leather with some lemon zest. Taste of sour cherry, lemon juice and earth. A bit too sour for my taste, but still OK.

koleminer20 (1383) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2015
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 (2719) - 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 (579) - 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.
