A little hazy red colored beer, with a little head. The aroma of a lot of fruits, cherries, nice sourness with wood notes. The taste of cherries with vanilla, wood and sour. The aftertaste is sour with a little bitter and dry sweet.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 30, 2010
750mL courtesy of Travlr. Poured a deep pink/purple with thin bubbles abounding- no real head though. Aroma is outstanding: rich cherry pie, baked sweet cherries, sour cherries. Amazing kriek nose. Taste is a little thin, tart berries, not really full sour, pretty highly carbonated on the palate. Refreshing, not too intense. Could use more time in the barrel to develop a full sourness.

2009 Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a hazed ruby red body with a tan head. Aromas are big and vinous with fruit, berries, tartness, wine, caramel, leather and strawberries. Flavors are much less tart, but very vinous with caramel, berries and wine. Lively bubbles.

sebletitje (9163) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2011
Bouteille 75cl, 63/250, lot 391, bb fev 2015. Couleur rougeâtre/rubis, mousse beige. Arôme a de profondes notes de cerises tout en gardant cet aspect de fût de Bourgogne. L’aigreur des cerises se ressent ainsi que le boisé qui st évoqué par le chêne. En bouche, une bière facile à boire de 5.5% avec une couche de cerises acidulées qui n’est pas trop désagréable au palais, une fine carbonation qui se mélange au bois et un du Bourgogne qui reste bien en retrait tout en laissant une fin de touche de vignoble. Mon seul regret pour cette bière reste un peu le mutisme du fût de Bourgogne qui a un peu dur à se faire présent.

DBF Goes 20110320 (75 cl Bottle): A dark red beer, slightly cloudy with light-pink head. We found in the aroma some sweetness, but more cherry-like (also some sour) snell. Further wood and vanille. The taste is mainly cherry-like sour with some woodness bitter. A nice tasted beer.

Mora2000 (6155) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a reddish color with an off-white head. The aroma is heavy on the dark fruit with some brown sugar and oak aged notes. Fairly complex and very enjoyable. The aroma is more of the same. I get some lightly tart dark fruit, strawberries and cherries, as well as some oak aging notes. The tartness is fairly minimal. The beer is easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
