Sample pour from Dennis @ Blind Tiger. 2010 Vintage. Pours deep red with a pink head. Aroma is abundant cherry and oak. Taste is incredibly tart but the finish is very balanced. Really terrific.

Pours a deep blood-red. Looks awesome. Aroma isnt anything special, smells generic, sour. Taste is a bright tartness, a hint of funk, and an underlying, barely noticeable sweet cherry flavor. Very good.

teorn88 (7612) - Rimini, ITALY - MAR 21, 2017
75cl bottle via Grand Cru. It pours a dark ruby color with a small pink head. Aroma is tart and citric with notes of sour cherry, almond, cherry pi, lemon juice. Taste is also very acidic and tart with more sour cherries, lemon and almonds. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, nice fruit presence but quite aggressive tartness

Vells (1764) - Rīga, LATVIA - MAR 21, 2017
Simple, but nice berry like kick, fresh cherries, dried berries, cherry stones, some oak impact. Light sweetness with moderate tartness. Lovely but nothing too exciting.

olsvammel (6791) - rebro, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle from Beergium. Tart smell with cherries and a chemical note of aceton. Very tart with a slight fruity finish. The tartness is a bit overpowering, the cherries dont get allot of room. Milky and slight harsh mouthfeel. The chemical note is a bit disturbing.

rumore (326) - Rimini, ITALY - MAR 12, 2017
From 75cl bottle at Grand Cru, Rimini, Italy. Pours reddish with limited foam. Aroma denotes sourness, plus a fruity feeling. Body is medium, with significant astringency. Taste has some sweetness, but most of all a strong sourness, capturing your mouth. Finish is looong...
