0.5l bottle indicates 6.9% abv, and says "brewed in 2014". I assume this is the same beer just a different vintage. Pours clear chestnut with some maroon tints. A ring and a few islets of creamy foam. Nose is dark cherries, balsamic vinegar, wood and malted chocolate. Mouth puckering beginning of vinegar and tart berries. Later sips show some wood, toasted malt, and hints of cream and toffee. Medium bodied and definitely acidic-sour, with a pleasant medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Haand Festival. Vintage 2013. A reddish light brown beer, unclear, and with a pinkish head. It’s lightly vinegar-ish on the nose, with toffee, fruit caramel and a solid dose of cherries. The flavor is pretty much the same, sour and vinegarish, some toffee too, and even more cherries than in the aroma. Tart on the palate, low on carbonation. Cherries, vinegar and some toffee in the finish. A bit challenging to drink, but it’s a tasteful beer anyway. 140524

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep red with a thick white head. Aroma mixes barnyard elements with cherry and sour.
The taste is more sour and less fruity than I expected, reasonably well bodied for its style though you would never detect that this is 7° ABV. Sour, strong taste though not really complex. A good alternative to gueuze based krieks.
