FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 1, 2007
750mL bottle. 2004 vintage. Brilliant ruby red color with a small light pink head. Plastic phenols and muted musty hay with a heavy cherry skin and cherry stone aromatic. Sharp acidity up front, ripe sour cherries and minor floral notes. Almondy cherry stone character melds with a softening tartness. Cherry skin, dusty ester and phenol component in the finish with lingering woody acetic sourness. Mouthfeel is light, rather dry.

RichardGretton (4755) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2007
Bottle, 2004 vintage. Dark reddish beer with a strawberry coloured head. The aroma is lightly sour cherry, and the flavour is lightly sour cherries and quite dry. Overall an average beer.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & GregClow -- my bottle courtesy of SecretSanta. Vintage 2003. Pours a gorgeous dark ruby-red with a large lasting pink head -- it’s not often I give a 5 for appearance but this looks great! Nice aroma of very tart cherries, yeast funk, sweet malt, wood and spices. Flavour: Oh man is that ever tart! Really tart cherries, funky yeast, sweet malt, vinegary wine and spices. Quite carbonated. This is amazing stuff!

Tap at the drafting room. Cloudy red with little head. Aroma of sour cherries, yeast funk and a little barnyard. Taste was mostly sour, with a bit of sweet malt. Acidic Finish. Very good.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Draught: Aroma of tart, sour cherries. Smells sweet. A bit like cough medicine. Poured blood red with a small pink head. Very tart flavor. Made me pucker and salivate. Also tasted of cherries. No carbonation. Light texture. Too tart.

4.4
HogTownHarry (6622) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle (750ml - 2003 vintage). Shared with blankboy and GregClow, blankboy’s bottle courtesy of his 2006 SecretSanta. Poured thick, almost chunky deep red, large pink head - almost perfect. Aroma - holy crap - deep yeast funk, sour cherry, lush, goddamn great. Fresh sour cherry with a sweet thick malt base, waves of lanolin and burnt rubber yeast/funk, the flavour rolls and shifts on my palate - my wife (didn’t like it) said "lemon juice!" - very acidic but I think well behaved. Thick, acidic, mildly carbonation, medium linger - just friggin’ amazing, one of my favorites.

GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & blankboy - courtesy of blankboy. 2003 vintage. Deep ruby red with a lovely pink head. Aroma - sour cherry, dark wood, aged vinegar - nice! Flavour - oh, yeah! Seriously puckering, but so good - sour cherries, balsamic vinegar, super dry wine. Mmmmmmm!

4.5
minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 10, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2007 11-23-06. 2001 bottle. Clear ruby red body and lovely pink head; medium carbonation. Aroma of freshly picked dark cherries. Flavor is more of tart cherries, can’t get enough of this. Earthy, oak character; dry yet juicy. Very enjoyable and dignified beer for a quiet thanksgiving dinner.

3.9
MiP (15650) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2007
Bottle. Nice acidic aroma. Hazy deep red colour. No head. The flavour is a little acidic with some mild/round notes. Quite earthy, ending on an acidic note. Very nice.
