Totally good beer, the taste, the aroma, the look, the foam, the aftertaste, everything was good. Cannot complain.

Draught at the GBBF, Earls Court 02/08/2006 Sour fruit aroma. Red strong in alcohol and fruity with a hint of whisky. Some dryness in the finish.

frankenkitty (2008) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2006
Best Before 31-10-05Pours a deep cranberry color with an amber glow. A fast, pinkish-gray head is quickly a thin skin and halo. Mouthwateringly tart and acidic aromas showcase Belgian yeast strains. Leather, cheese, tannins and of course a fruity dollop of cherries that does not overwhelm. Sharp, astringent sourness in the mouth reeks of cherry pie filling. This flavor lingers on a dry finish, rather like a mousse. Mild acidity is not upsetting."Flemish Sour" or "Fruit Beer"... who cares... its rather decadent and enjoyable.

11.2oz, Best before 15-02-07. Pours a clear brownish red with a one and a half finger fading light pink head. Aroma of oak, sour fruits (in addition to the cherries), barnyard funk, a little bit of dust and cobwebs. The taste reminds me of their other beer I tried and the beer couldnt decide whether it wanted to be sweet or acidic--this one wants to be a little too sweet for me. The flavors are otherwise pretty much the same with the oak and funk up front. I got a little cardboard as well. Dry finish. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Not too bad.

HumbertHumbert (77) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2006
A nice and not-too-sweet cherry beer with some background complexity and a primarily real fruit flavor. Good balance and a refreshing finish. I could drink a few of these with some soft cheese and dry sausage.

Jerre (3272) - Waregem, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2006
Sparkling clear ruby body topped by a foamy small pink head. The aroma is sour cherries and light nuty malt. Sour cherry with a fakish cherry flavor, cherry syrup I guess. Very stringent finish.

mabjork (692) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottled. Dark red in colour. Minor red head. It has a sweet and cherry like aroma. The flavour is sweet but there is a sour tone at the same time. Kinda bitter really. Quite enjouable.

GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2006
[cask at GBBF 06] Aroma is dominated by cherry with some musky aromas and a faint acidity also a little lactic. full body with a sweet and tart finish. A little on the sweet side and Id prefer a more agressive sourness.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2006
Draft at GBBF 06. Dark red with a white head. No, it has a faint pink tinge to it. Cheese and sour cherry aroma. Vinegary sourness, but not overpowering as it blends wonderfully with the sweetness of the real cherries. Superb.
