Theydon_Bois (18422) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2016
Bottle at The High WyCum tasting, Chez Bois, thanks to Bropey 05/11/16. Hazed reddish orange with a decent light crimson cap. Nose is pissy cherry skins, funk, wood must, light balsa. Taste comprises puckering cherries, spice, straw, wood must, red berry funk, light fruit balsams. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a mellow puckering edge. Decent easy drinking sour, approachable stuff but not top draw.

The taste is crisp, tart, good mouth - pucker, minerals, bright acidity, wood, vanilla, cherry, sour green apple, lemon sherbet, marzipan with a dry, firmly dry finish. Medium body and fine, pricey carbonation. Fresh, bright, fruity and tart. Nice, juan.

Bottle @home (Euro-vision 2016 tasting.) Pours reddish/brown with a slightly off-white head. Nose and taste is all the same funk straight up, cherries, some rhubarb, ive written down cherries twice on this bit of paper it must have been big cherries.

weordie (1052) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2016
Pours light reddy pink with no head and lots of fizz. Aroma is slight alcoholic cherries. A real lip smacking, dry your mouth, punch in the eye sourness to this. Fantastic. Truly fantastic.

Fin (10157) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Craig (shared with Craig, cheers mate!) had this at Cropredy 2016 I believe this bottle was consumed on Friday 12th August 2016 This pours reddy brown with a small head. Fruity with the cherries showing but not massively so, woody elements to this also, has a Belgian feel about it. Fruity, tangy and tart and quite good but no earth shaker. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4

WaddlingPlatypus (171) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
750ml bottle at the Head of Steam, Durham. Pale cloudy amber pour, with virtually no head. Sweet whiskey aroma, along with vibrant sour cherry. The flavour is a mouth-wrinkling sour cherry and rhubarb, with a touch of red wine and vinegar brought together in a carbonated mouthfeel, shot through with a tart, jammy sweetness.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4902) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 13, 2016
Picked up a berrylicious cake at Nakitanitei near Lingua World Cafe in Osaka.

I got it to pair with Odells Friek which is a 6.9% ale with cherries and raspberries added then aged 2 years in oak barrels.

Its an orange pink color best described as salmon with a fizzy light pink foam that vanished in an eyeblink. Sharp oaky aroma with an almond nut quality I surmise came from the cherry pits. Theres also a tart cherry and raspberry component which I enjoy.

A lovely soft round carbonation that reveals a very acidic, tart cherry, nutty almond and earthy raspberry. This is exceedingly tart, acidic but gives enough berry sweetness in the dry lingering finish.

Man with the cake the berry flavor really pops prompting me to say Wow! While the chocolate gives an amazing sweet counterpoint. If youve got a berry sour get this cake to pair with it. Superb.

On its own Id say hovering around 4 but paired with this raspberry-chocolate cake its easily a 4.2 so Ill split the difference and give it a 4.1.
