4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, lotnummer 13-11-2012. Pours deep red, almost ruby, with small, pinkish, a bit unstable head. Strong aroma of sour cherries, combined with lambic notes. Taste is quite complex: sour, almost vinegar-like, subtly sweet, with lots of cherries, and tannic, a bit astringent aftertaste. A very good kriek!

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Huge thanks to Travlr! Second time drinking this, first time rating. This is a class unto its own. Deep ruby red. So deeply red but also clear. Nuts. Aroma is a bit subdued but dusty. Med-full bodied and exploding with cherry flavor. Both ripe cherries but especially cherry preserves. Slight medicinal cherry flavor but doesn’t distract. This is an excellent beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
At home, 2014 bottle (37.5cl)
Pour: Dark, intense red (lives up to the name!), next to no carbonation and thus no head at all.
Smell: Sour cherry, candied cherry, sweet, jello
Tastes - First: sweet, intense fruit; mids: dark, sour grape; after: tartness, lingering black cherry
Verdict: Overall very pleasant taste! The sour grapes play well with the natural sourness of the lambic.

Bottle at Örebro Ölcafé. Fruity and tart smell with berries and wood. Similar taste. Surprisingly clean taste. Relatively mild acid. Refreshing. Dry finish. A bit too mild but still nice.
