On keg, King William IV, Leyton, London, 9/1/2016. Pre-family meal.
Excellent sour notes. Very much like a Frank Boon gueuze. Bone dry. Loads of cherry-cola on the tongue. Nice carbonation. Like a bottled beer. Not ott not too soft. Great drinkability. The lactose was there but it was not at all heavy or prominent which is exactly how lactose should be. I did get a huge abundance of cherry-cola and I thoroughly enjoyed this. Excellent.

bright red, small head. Cherry aroma is great. clean, fruity, very fresh aroma with a bit of wheat. Oh, this is nice. more than just sour, you get a straight up cherry beer, good mat backbone to balance things out. really enjoyable. erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 20, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2016 Traditional ale like. Some yeast, lots of wood. Very dry, maybe a bit too subtle sour. Will developed, not really to cherry like, but it sure adds character. Great woody brew.

Sampled from bottle @ Hey Julien is back and Dean’s floor is moist tasting. Clear pink to red color, medium sized off-white to pinkish head. Smell and taste sourish, cherries, sour red fruit. Like it, nice one.

Keg at the Cock Tavern, London. Pours hazy, deep red with a fine, creamy head. Nose of funky fruit, cherry, tangy berries. Light sweet flavor, very tart, with up front funk and tang, then background rich, dark cherries. Bit of lactic tang, strong acidity. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp and tart to finish, some cherry pit bitterness, funky cherries, lemon acidity. Pretty good. The fruit character becomes a bit jammier as the beer warms. Nice. jackl (8423) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Keg @ The Cock Tavern. The pour’s medium hazy red with a tiny white head. The nose is sharp acetic lemon juice, bright sugar, soft fruit and malevolent buggy aromas. The taste is very tart, sour cherry and lemon rind. Hints of sweet sugar and marshmallow. Pissy wheat tang on the finish. Light body, refreshing. Overall, nice, if basic. madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012

Keg at Cocks Tavern. Very hazy (ahem) cherry coloured beer with a tidy pale pink head. Sour fruity yohgurt nose. Palate is crisp and dry. Tingling sourness, wine type of sourness not the vinegar type thank God. Tart sherbet cherry and other red fruits. More sherbet before the dry finish. Weird nose but I actually enjoyed the sherbet fruit on this one. A second one later on that same day proved a bit too much yoghurt. I think the trick with this one is to drink cold, it suppresses the yoghurt.

King William IV, Leyton. 3.7% - tasting cleaner now and sans the yohgurt which is good but also the sherbet which is a shame!
(Draught at King William IV, Leyton, London, 22 Nov 2012) Hazy red colour with foamy, white head. Fruity, sour nose with notes of cherries, red fruit and a fairly fresh acidity. Fruity, tart taste with cherries, red fruit and a dry, fresh acidity in the finish. Light body, quite dry and tart. Low bitterness. A bit weird, but quite drinkable and refreshing. Nice one.
