matthewjk (1089) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bank-account-breaking 12.7 oz. export bottle - Just won the lottery, so I thought I would try this out. Its a fun journey, but when its all said and done the flavors dont meld well for me--quite pointed and rough. Mostly sour and dry. Looks like Im going against the grain on this one.

TheKernOwl (214) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2017
V sour, brett-y. Nose also dusty/leather-y, yeasty; almost like cranberry juice with cinnamon! Bordeaux-like cherry nose continues into wine-like, tart mouth. Long wavering finish is like an echo chamber of watermelons, and leaves your tongue humming.

tmzl (292) - SLOVENIA - FEB 10, 2017
Cherries dominate, almonds, low funk, goes to ripe/rotten melons, medium malic/lactic sourness, highly drinkable, fresh and dry.

lefossoyeur (608) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2017
Pours a pristine scarlet purple with a big dark pink head that lasts for a good while. Cherry pits with hints of funk, very clean nose. Lively attack, bright cherry note, just a touch of sweetness to balance the acidity that is pretty gentle. Finish is tart cherries with an almost metallic note. That drinks so easily. Doesnt reach intense complexity but I enjoyed it so much.

john44 (2630) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2017
Bottle. BBE date May 2026; Drank Mar 2009 - Cherry Red in colour. Poured crystal clear; but with a grainy sediment. Very effervescent. Very cherry-fruity, zingy, tangy, lots of tart cherries. Acidic, mildly sour. Earthy, yeasty, funky. Oaky, woody, leathery. Very dry finish. Liked it. Nice lambic fruit! (2009-03)

Achel (485) - Ioannina, GREECE - FEB 2, 2017
Cloudy red; woody, big brett, leather. Very tart. Fruity - wonderfully balanced. I thought Id successfully conceptualized the oude gueuzes and krieks of this world, but its all moot anyway because theyre all great.

Velquex (107) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 28, 2017
[Butelka] Wygląd: Głęboka czerwień, rżowa piana. Aromat: Winny, mocno wiśniowy, skra, konik. Smak: Intensywna, lecz przyjemna kwaśność, wiśnie. Podsumowanie: Dobre, lecz bez żadnych ekscytacji.

Gramoit (468) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 17, 2017
Huge big sweet cherry with hints of medical type of flavours which goes very well with the subtle tart, dry as a bone finish. Absolute Beauty.
