2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bouteille de 500ml. Vintage 2009. Visuel: Cette bière a une robe rubis, versée en 2 verres l’un est claire et translucide et l’autre est trouble, la mousse est inexistante. Olfactif: On passe de cerises aux brett caractérisé par des effluves de chèvre mouillée. Gustatif: La bière est mince et sec, les goûts de sauvages sont présents mais une fois avalé cette bière assèche le palais et elle est astringente. Résumé: Un mauvais Kriek Lambic.

Dark ruby color; high carbonation; medium sized, light pink head. The first aroma perceived is old wood (barrels), then malt, light vanilla, light sourness and delicate cherries. The body is quite light, the mouthfeel weak; there is a delicate flavor of cherries and dry wood; low bitterness and almost no sourness, but there are soft tannins in the end; the final is quite empty.
Not bad, but the body is too weak.

Some airy light pink bubbles as lacing on top of a clear cherry colored beer.
Smell yeast, sour, yoghurt, caramel and malts.
Taste is a light mix of cherries, yoghurt, light sour and yeast.
Really light body: low carbo, medium body, light dry light tingly mouthfeel and light watery texture.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly brownish, red liquid with a pink head. Aroma is a bit acidic and quite sweet with loads of cherry lollipop and cherries. Maybe a bit synthetic, definitely very fruity. Taste is actually rather dry, with lots of cherries and a hint of salad stalks towards the end. The acidity is quite held back, and the beer unfortunately dies rather fast. Still an ok brew.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
750 ml bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 2009 vintage. Slight gush. 24MA11.
App.: Cloudy deep pinkish-brown with a small pinkish head.
Aroma: A lot of minerals, frank tartness, a bit of sour cherry, light barnyard, horse blanket, leather, funk, bitter herbals, some faint brown sugar hints, pretty stern stuff.
Palate: Medium-ish body, soft effervescence, a little astringency, puckering sourness.
Flav.: Bracing sourness, some tart cherries, a little wood, only a touch of the Lambic/Saison character, hints of friendlier black cherries, a wee hint of brown sugar; really tart with a mineral and watery tart cherry finish.
Just about turned my face inside out. Too tart for this boy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a clear light red color ale with a large bubbly head with average retention and limited lacing. Aroma of oak and sour cherries with light acidic notes is very enjoyable and refreshing. Taste is a nice mix between some oak notes with sour cherries. Well balanced tart notes with a light acidic touch. Body is quite full for style with great carbonation. Well brewed with great drinkability and complexity notes.
