Plum red with 2 finger creamy head. Tart with cherry red wine and vinegar. Very sour. A strange chocolate and ginger taste with raspberry finish is like a barley wine. Cocoa cola and cherry.

Drank this at Borefts Festival at De Molen. I really enjoyed it. It had a great sourness and very natural cherry flavour. It was one of the few beers at the festival that I went back and had another glass of.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Authentic cherry beer made with actual fruit instead of the extracts and sugar overload one would expect. Loose, yellowish head and deep ruby red colour, hazy. Fruit acidity, obvious sour cherry, impressions of plum and redcurrant, caramel malt base, bit bready, spicy yeastiness, above average hop bitterness in the finish (for the style); in all, a fascinating play of bitter, sweet and sour, perhaps not completely coming together, but complex in any case.
