gEUS (1353) - Linden, - NOV 14, 2012
750 ml bottle - pours deep amber with a red hue, no head. Aroma reveals the sour character of this beer; citrus, cherries, added with a tad of oak. Body is light and one-sided on the sourness; not balanced by a round mouthfeel or sweetness one can find with a good gueuze or a for example a Supplication. Taste is cherries and tart forest fruits all over. A pity it only goes to the sour side.

At the Alvinne Craft Beer Festival in Vichte-Belgium, with markoijelena. Bottle. Pours a dark amber hazy with reddish reflexes, non-head. Nose: a blast of flowers, cherries and strawberries. Mouth: cherry juice, fresh feel, tart end. Easy drinking despite its 10%.

Beerconnaiseur (164) - BELGIUM - FEB 6, 2015
50cl bottle, fresh batch, limited to 400 bottles. Low carbonation, somewhat sirupy mouthfeel and look, brown-red pour, quick vanishing head. Pleasant round nose with wood notes & cherry (nice intertwining of both aromas), malt and boiled wort, passion fruit, lychee, some candi and even caramel in the far background. Soft citrussy cherry flavour, medium tartness, oily mouthfeel. Lovely to have a higher ABV, hints of the Land vM and cherries altogether. Looking forward aging it and tasting it from 2-3 years on.

teddybeer (2514) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 8, 2014
Reddish/dark coppery colour with a minimal and quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma has intense notes if cheeries with wooden hints. Flavor is acidic, sourish, very fruity dominating cherries, wooden, red wine and slightly bittery almond. The final is very sourish with notes of barrel and cherries.
