Bottle shared by Pino at my 22nd birthday. 750ml into my tulip, 2010 vintage.
Poured blood red, with a nice pink head. Great retention, with some substantial density. Nose has some sour cherry, mild chlorophenols and some typical, but somewhat subdued Cantillon funk. Tastes of more sour cherries, akin to an amped up handful of Sour Patch kids. Some oak, really funky and complex. Sour as hell mouthfeel, extremely high pucker-inducing capabilities. Drying and cleaning mouthfeel, a pseudo-palate cleanser, borders on palate shredder. A great lambic, very tasty and appetizing. Gets me pumped to try the Lou Pepe Kriek at some point.

Bottle from bobsy, opened at Liam's birthday
Blood red colour, ring of pinkish-white head, some lace left as well. Smell is very tart, funky and yeasty, cherry and some balsamic notes as well, some notes of hay/earthy grass are there but quite subtle. Taste is of very tart cherries, incredibly sour and whacks you straight in the face, fruity, funky and yeasty, sour notes are felt for a while after swallowing as well. Med-high carbonation, puckering and fairly dry, medium-full body. This was quite a pleasure, really enjoyed this, needless to say I would revisit this as often as possible.

A: 1" pink head (haha) which dissipated relatively quickly over red cloudy liquid. Very inviting.
S: Yeast and sour cherries.
T: Tastes like a pie made of sour cherries. No other way to describe it.
M: Thin viscosity and a high level of very fine carbonation.
O: Beautiful beer that is delicately balanced.
