furthur (1081) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Bottle, ruby red beer, huge pink fizzy head disappears. Aroma is kombucha, cherry, hint of goat. Taste is sour cherry, kombucha, with a touch of black pepper at the end. Palate is light, carbonation much more moderate than the fizzy head would imply. I’ve always thought this would be sweet syrup, I don’t know why. It’s quite sour, but not vineagar sour. Pair with late night existential writing assignments and a crackling fire.

Shit. This motherfucker exploded all over the kitchen trying to remove the cork. The glass bottle broke. Strained 1oz for the rake. Aroma of raspberries and oak. Nice funk. Taste is tart and dry. Good body. Great fruit. Really would like to chug a 750 of this in under 10 seconds.

Corked Bottle. Poured a hazy red color with an average frothy reddish head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate tart cherry, yeast and floral aroma. Medium body with a dry texture and lively carbonation. Medium tart & sour flavor with a medium sour &n tart finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.

Muahahahaha the best part of being a beer tough guy is trashing Lindemans. This is cheap for the style, just about $15 + surrendering of your man card. Deep garnet hues (just lost some tough guy points with those three words) with a fizzy pink head. Aroma is cherry, barnyard funk, sweat socks. Flavor is nice, funky, medium tart with loads of cherry, very mild acetic notes. Medium-bodied with effervescent carbonation. Actually pretty good! Lindemans Framboise this is not.

Zilverenmaan (96) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2017
Aroma sour, cherries. Taste sour, cherries not dominating, a slight hint of sweetness. Lacks the complex taste of the old geuze and the taste of cherries is underwhelming.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2017 Rami Rami is drinking an Oude Kriek Cuvée René (2016) by Brouwerij Lindemans at PowiśleRozlew 11 luty. Aromat mocno skorzano dziki, wisnie raczej pestkowe, b mocno kwasne, niewiele tanin, cytrynowa ta kwasnosc, malo tanin

bardzo wysoko wysycony, lepiej go polewac z wysoka albo pomajtac szklem, lepszy po odgazowniu. dla mnie prywatnie kwasnosc zbyt wysoka. niemniej stosunek jakosc/cena w tym zadrogimswiecielambikowiinnychkwasow jest ryli baaaardzo cacy

Pullo @ Bottle Shop, Brugge. Kaatuu huilulasiin syvän punaisena ja kirkkaana, katoava pinkki vaahto on noin 2 sormen paksuinen. Tuoksussa on odotettavasti vahvaa kirsikkaisuutta, mutta myös herukkaisuutta ja hiven mansikkaakin löytyy. Hapan nahkaisuuskin on mukana, kuten kuuluu. Maku on todella happaman kirsikkainen, nahkainen ja lopussa herukkaisuuttakin löytyy. Loppumaussa tuntuu myös kuohkea viljaisuus, vehnä kenties? Suutuntuma on todella hapan, muttei äärimmäisen kuiva kuitenkaan, jännää. Hieman makeuttakin tuntuu. Hieno kriek, jonka happamuus iskee oikein kunnolla, vaikka makeus loppua kohden tasapainottaa. Riittävän monipuolinen nautittavaksi.
