tekstr1der (469) - New Hampshire, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Bottled 2013-07-10. Pours an opaque very dark brown with a touch of rouge. Very little head with a ring of large bubbles. Aroma is out of sight - semi sweet/tart cherry is one of my favorite smells on earth. Flavor is tart as all get out, triggering the pucker reflex in a big way. Slightly sour and very tart. Good mouthfeel, but just too tart. Kasteel Rouge is much more my speed.

Shag (2918) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 10, 2016
This poured a reddish brown color with a diminishing white head. Aroma contains a lot of cherries, a hint of granny smith apples, oak, and some vinegar notes. The flavor is not very sour but slightly so with some sweetness present. Some more cherries and sour apples present. Maybe a hint of grapes. Overall not as sour as some lambics can be so this one is well balanced. Tasty.

Bulk_Carrier (4745) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - DEC 5, 2016
Poured into my stange, the appearance was a dark red with shades of dark purple in the center. Quickly dissipating fingers worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. No lacing. The aroma had started with some sweet and tart red and black cherries. Light oak but grows as it warms. Sour level is nice and accompanying without being overly done. The flavor leans to an oaky tannnic dry blend of the sweet and tart cherries. Both black and red pull through nicely. Semi-dry cherry tart then sweet aftertaste forwarding into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it letting the carbonation fair kindly to the body without distracting the sour to tart level hitting my tongue just as it should. Overall, damn nice iambic and would love to have with some cheesecake, if I was able to have again.
