Tide (6897) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2019 Bottle from a friend. Crimson color, white head. Sour taste with cherry, tart, wheat, oak, earthy notes and vinegar. Sour finish with cherry, tart, oak, earthy notes, vinegar and berries. Excellent sour ale.

tiong (10832) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2019 500ml bottle. Intensely sour, funky and tartish with loads of cherries, mild wood, oak and yeastiness. Intense.

neongolden (2922) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2019 (500ml bottle shared @ Nische's tasting, not even sure where this appeared from but thanks!) Pours hazy medium orangish red with a whitish head. Notes of quite sour and concentrated cherries, a little jammy sweetness, cherry skins, almonds, high lactic sourness, light fruit vinegar, oak, red wine tannin, light musty cellar funk. High tartness continues all the way through the finish. Medium bodied, with soft effervescent carb. The cherry has likely faded with age and left the sourness even more unmasked; it's a nice beer but now a little acid-heavy.

Werckmeister (5422) - Cartagena, COLOMBIA - APR 17, 2019
UPDATED: APR 17, 2019 0,5l bottle at Nisches tasting, thanks for sharing. amber / redish cloudy color, small white head. smells marzipan, light cherries, lactic, earthy, sour cherries. nice smell. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes lactic, marzipan, some sour cherries, nutty. finishes rather dry and medium sour with notes of marzipan, cherry and nutty notes. quite on the sour side, cherry notes are rather faded. 7, 4, 7, 3, 16

Thursday, November 22, 2018. Bottle. 8%. Purchase ("Bier Market", Nantes (44), FR). Home. A sparkling red-pink scarlet clear beer with an average off-white head ; short retention ; good lacing. Cherry+ (such as in jar of cherries), vinegar notes. Medium dry refreshing sour, light to medium round sweet, bitter note. Light to medium body, oily texture, soft gaseous, fruity sweet-acid lasting finish. Overall, elegant and very fruity :)

Bottle from Be Hoppy. Nose is very deep Cherry, Raspberry, Joghurt. Palate is a super balanced mix of oaky Cherry Pips and joghurty Raspberry. Really good, a Bit to expensive to drink alone though, so share it with friends ;)

anstei (3783) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 29, 2018
Bottle, vintage 2015, courtesy of SinH4. Pours hazy orange with a decent head. Aroma is acetone, cherry, stones, dense ripe fruit. Body is medium, sweetly sour, lively carbonation, vinegar, acetone. Still cherries and stone, peel. A bit too harsh to be thoroughly enjoyable.

SinH4 (12080) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2018
2015 bottle. Hazy amber color with a red touch and a white head. Aroma is fresh yoghurt, barrel funk, surprisingly little fruit. Taste is intense cherry skin, acetone, tannins, acidic, a touch bitter almonds. Silky mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Awesome, but a bit too acidic.

Big cherries, sweet and sour, cherry stone, grapeskin, almond, cobwebs, funky, woodglue, aggressive lactic sour, wood. Moderate sweet and quite a sour pucker. Medium body, soft carbonation. Very crass sour finish and very rich fruity cherry before.
