Martinus (4569) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2011 Dark red colour, almost like a bourgogne. Slightly hazy, with a fast disappearing pinkish white head. Aroma very much of sour cherries. Some light almond / cherry pips. Light vanilla. Flavour is delicate and light. Sour cherries. Hint of sweet. Bit oily texture.
Reminding of the sour cherry (krieken) sauce that is quite common in Belgium, and spot on how I like this sauce (tart and with background of the cherry pips). But Kerasus just lacks any pronounced flavour of beer or lambic. Very enjoyable nontheless.
(From 33cL bottle, bottled 2008)

SlovakSniper (5360) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2011
(Courtoisie de rodenbach99) Le liquide a une robe rouge rubis. Le nez prsente des armes surets et acides avec des parfums de laine mouille et de cerises trs lgrement sucres. Les saveurs sont trs peu russies : le liquide tombe en eau surette et perd pratiquement toutes les qualits qui sont gnralement propres aux bires dites sauvages. En bouche, le liquide est faiblement structur. Son ptillement est bas et sa texture aqueuse. Quant la finale, elle tombe plat : indescriptiblement fuyante. En rsum, pas fameux.

rodenbach99 (4415) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2011
Bouteille de 500ml. Vintage 2009. Visuel: Cette bire a une robe rubis, verse en 2 verres lun est claire et translucide et lautre est trouble, la mousse est inexistante. Olfactif: On passe de cerises aux brett caractris par des effluves de chvre mouille. Gustatif: La bire est mince et sec, les gots de sauvages sont prsents mais une fois aval cette bire assche le palais et elle est astringente. Rsum: Un mauvais Kriek Lambic.

Dark ruby color; high carbonation; medium sized, light pink head. The first aroma perceived is old wood (barrels), then malt, light vanilla, light sourness and delicate cherries. The body is quite light, the mouthfeel weak; there is a delicate flavor of cherries and dry wood; low bitterness and almost no sourness, but there are soft tannins in the end; the final is quite empty.
Not bad, but the body is too weak.

Countbeer (6338) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2011
Bottle: Some airy light pink bubbles as lacing on top of a clear cherry colored beer. Smell yeast, sour, yoghurt, caramel and malts. Taste is a light mix of cherries, yoghurt, light sour and yeast. Really light body: low carbo, medium body, light dry light tingly mouthfeel and light watery texture.

maledictum (763) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours a slightly brownish, red liquid with a pink head. Aroma is a bit acidic and quite sweet with loads of cherry lollipop and cherries. Maybe a bit synthetic, definitely very fruity. Taste is actually rather dry, with lots of cherries and a hint of salad stalks towards the end. The acidity is quite held back, and the beer unfortunately dies rather fast. Still an ok brew.

probstblueribbon (3790) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2011
750 ml bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 2009 vintage. Slight gush. 24MA11.

App.: Cloudy deep pinkish-brown with a small pinkish head. Aroma: A lot of minerals, frank tartness, a bit of sour cherry, light barnyard, horse blanket, leather, funk, bitter herbals, some faint brown sugar hints, pretty stern stuff. Palate: Medium-ish body, soft effervescence, a little astringency, puckering sourness. Flav.: Bracing sourness, some tart cherries, a little wood, only a touch of the Lambic/Saison character, hints of friendlier black cherries, a wee hint of brown sugar; really tart with a mineral and watery tart cherry finish.

Just about turned my face inside out. Too tart for this boy.

Boutip (6131) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2011
Bottle: Poured a clear light red color ale with a large bubbly head with average retention and limited lacing. Aroma of oak and sour cherries with light acidic notes is very enjoyable and refreshing. Taste is a nice mix between some oak notes with sour cherries. Well balanced tart notes with a light acidic touch. Body is quite full for style with great carbonation. Well brewed with great drinkability and complexity notes.
