12/17/10. Bottle shared by fata2683 - HUGE thanks, Keith! Nice woody and sour cherry aroma with acid and vinegar. Puckering sour cherry flavor that ends with big tannic wood dryness that almost leaves your mouth chalky.

Pours with no head, pale red, sour, some boozy taste. Cherry and sour. Very nice.

Thanks to Zach, blazer. Strong acidic vinegar aroma. Flavor mimics. Whew!!!

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - NOV 19, 2010
A nice pink-red with barely no head. The aroma is vinyl, red fruits, some vinegar. The taste is extremely sour, harsh and dry. Lack elegance.

2/10 0.33 l can courtesy of Marko, thanks! It poured murky brown-orange-reddish body with smaller head that went down soon. Vinegar aroma, only a little bit of sour cherry; strange and harsh, yet nice and elegant. Very sour, typical wild lambic sourness dominates the flavor, cherry is only slightly present, no mercy for sweetness here. Medium body, with, of course, long sour cherry finish which was actually very nice and showed all the qualities of this brew. Alcohol...perfectly hidden! Those are the ales you simply like or not, you can enjoy in one or find it completely pesky. I don’t mind having one, such a good sour ale/lambic.

caesar (7170) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2010
Bottled. Hazy reddish amber color, short head. Aroma is tart, cherry, cheesy, barnyard. Extremely harsh sour taste, very very acidic. Too much for my esophagus.

NoiZe (2322) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2010
Dark red colored brew. Sour aroma. A lot of sourness in the flavor. Some cherries and alcohol. Too much sourness for my stomach.

kschep (1707) - DENMARK - OCT 28, 2010
