[Copenhagen 2017] BIG THANKS! 500 ml. bottle split by 4 @ Himmeriget. 2016 Vintage. Batch 3. Bright red cherry syrup appearance, almost no head. Nose is huge puckering kriek, reminds me even a bit of Cantillon Kriek but less thick, low dirty ditch water funk, old lemon, huge cherry. Pits almost a touch watery, dirty lemon, ditch water but overall, fruit is amazing, puckering funky, acidic, cherry pits, acidic funk,… Might have been a bit better fresher with even bigger fruit but this is pretty awesome with this huge sour puckering funk. Really good stuff.

Draft, 4 oz. Copenhagen Beer Celebration, Boston, MA. 23 September, 17. Appearance shows hazy red color with fizzy head. Aroma is bold cherries, yogurt, oak, subtle acid. Taste is mild cherry jam character followed but yogurt and lasting tartness in the finish. Acid doesn’t overwhelm. I like it and for a sour ale, very approachable.

Sudz4Dayz (160) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2017
50cl bottle obtained in a trade. Pours blood red. Dark red cherry. Good carbonation. Off white fizzy head dissipating quickly. Small micro bubbles rising in the glass. Smells oaky, winey, strong berry fruit. Mostly cherry and barrel wood. A small lambic aroma as well. Tastes like sweet dark cherries. Strong oak barrel profile mixed with the cherries and sweet/sour flavor. Wonderful. Gives it the flavor and profile of a quality lambic. Beautiful tart, sour mouthfeel. Full and crisp throughout. Overall absolutely delicious. The cherries are perfect and it is beautifully aged as well.

Bottle as part of a JK tasting. Having this as part of a Jester King fruited sour tasting made two things clear: 1) JK knows how to build a beautiful wild, sour beer, since all of their barrel aged stuff has a great combination of barnyard funk and a sharp acidic bite, and 2) this has to be their best fruited sour. The cherries balance the tartness extremely well, allowing both flavors to come through before hitting a nice, drying balance. Theres also a nice, earthy cherry flavor that really cuts through; its never sweet, but its very prominent and it goes well with the rest of the beer. Theres a lot of flavor in this, and its expertly pulled off.
