Soda like with a pink cherry hue and nice small fizzy head. Assertive and lifted nose of cherry fruits, almost in the confectionary mould, such is the concentration. Unique flavours come out on the palate - more dead clear cherry with a powdery feel which, believe it or not, is also evident on the nose. Reminds me a lot of the chalky flavour candy I bought as a child that was packaged as an edible braclet. (200ml e2.00 on tap @ brewery)

DSG (5631) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 1, 2008
(3/10/08) On tap at Drie Fonteinen restaurant in Beersel. Deep red, almost opaque, with medium pink head. Aroma of cherries, a bit medicinal with hints of funk. Flavor is sourish with some medicinal notes, cherries, some citrus and some sweetness as well. Light to medium body. Quite good but definitely not great.

Aroma is loads of cherry, coated in brett. Also some barn, hay and dust. Flavour is light sourness, quite subtle, a bit watery. Massive cherry, smooth brett. Highly drinkable.

Drunk on draft at 3 Fonteinen in Beersel. Very strong cherry flavour. Sweetness varies but some sugar added. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught form Jacobs refridgeator. Natural taste and sour as hell. I like this very much, but not for people with a bad heart.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2006
Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2006. Red colour with no head. Aroma of cherry and other berries. Nice acidity flavour of cherry, sourness and little woody-like. Very nice one for a lambic style.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 Draft pour
Consumed at the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation, Opstal, May 2006

Slightly sweet flavor, syrupy, low carbonation. Sweet candy-like nose of red grapes and cheap grape juice. Really not that impressed by this one. Simple and juice like, in my opinion. When I sampled this the next day at the Drie Fonteinen restaurant, it was a little better. Had a much more striking nose of sweet, rich cherries, perhaps the most full cherry nose I’ve experienced. However, the flavor and texture didn’t impress me too much. Thinner than hoped, simple juice like flavors at times.

caesar (4893) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2006
Tap, in de Wildeman. Clear red color, no head or carbonation. Aroma of cherry, but soft. Taste has a soft tartness, bit watery, cherries ofcourse, not sweet. Thin body. Quite nice, but a bit too soft.

MPA (782) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - DEC 4, 2006
Red with a light white head. Berries and sweetness in aroma. Sugary flavour with berries, fruit and only slightly sour. Had expected more but it’s a "must have again".

on cask @ Brussels 9th Belgian Beer weekend. pours ruby with big bright pink head, never seen a head this pink! i really didn’t get much of a nose, mostly cherry pits. subtle funk to it. flavor isn’t very sour or tart, a sorta flabby cherry flavor that almost seems artifical. this isn’t very sour, tart, or funky. mouth feel a tad watery, very low acidity. a good kriek but not up to 3 Fonteinen standards.
