poisoneddwarf (2476) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - JAN 6, 2012
750 ml corked and caged bottle. Pours clear orangeish-red with a medium whitish-purple crackling head that falls into a blanket fairly quick. Aroma is funky tart, cherry. Taste starts out briefly sweet before quickly turning sour. Not as complex as the best lambics or sours. Highly carbonated with the body being a bit too thin. The aroma was more promising than the taste but this isnt bad.

emacgee (4661) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Pours clean bright ruby red with a thin short lived reddish head. Nose shows lots of berry notes and cherry skins with a hint of acetic acid. Herbal notes with some wood also coming through. Nice tart flavor with lots of cherry skin and a light spice. Some woody notes and raspberry and acetic character. Dry and acidic finish.

illidurit (2324) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Bottle courtesy of scray24, shared at the December iteration of the Santa Cruz tasting series. Pours the color of unfiltered apple juice with no head. Aroma of fragrant cherry, citric acidity, tart raspberries. Flavor is more lemony than cherry/raspberry but those notes are definitely there. A little light but very drinkable.

Beerdrinker79 (2173) - Idaho, USA - JAN 1, 2012
750 ml. corked n caged bottle- Pours crystal clear amber to red with a quickly dissipating 2 finger head that reduces to a collar and a few lively islands of foam. Aroma is tart cherries and raspberries, maybe a little funk, but that might be me just hoping. The taste is very tart, cherries and raspberries, and the real thing, not syrupy or imitation, unsweetened too. My one complaint is it is kind of one note, and I think it should be in the fruit lambic category, not sour ale/wild ale. Body is medium, carbonation is expectedly high. Overall I have to admit I was expecting more, the tartness is appealing, but a little brett or the oakiness being a little more prominent would have been nice.

Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Bottle. Pinkish orange color. Tastes very woody, slightly sweet with quite the sour punch. Fizzy. Fun, but nothing awesome.

thome50 (1294) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - DEC 26, 2011
2010 bottle via South Dakota bottle shop. Pours a nice copper color with an off white head. Aroma is of sour and raspberry but nothing that blows you away. Taste is again, light cherry with a bit of raspberry on the finish but nothing that stands out to me. Forgettable and very sad for the price.

nimbleprop (8076) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 24, 2011
750ml bottle pours a hazy, brick red with a creamy, eggshell head. Nose is raspberry, woody, lightly tart, malty, a little turbinado sugar. Flavor is sweet, berries, strawberry, brown sugar, melon, some balsamic vinegar. Medium bodied, tart finish. Very approachable.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 24, 2011
75cl bottle. Moderate acidity and cherry flavor with a touch of sweetness and more body than I expected. A little acetic. More like a flanders red than a lambic, actually. Pretty good but not quite supplication good.

dreamflower (790) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 22, 2011
Bottle shared with northropfrye. It is beautiful, crisp and clear in appearance, red honey colour. It has a sharp and tart aroma. Alarming. Its not as sweet as I was hoping, but having said that I feel like I can taste cloves or something like that.
