3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

500ml bottle @ home bought Dekoninck bierhalle Vichte. 8.5%. Dark red/brown and clear. Very sour, slight taste of cherries with something more bitter (dark chocolate). Thoroughly enjoyed it, not acidic for its sourness or strength. Highly carbonated on opening.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours unclear dark red, small white head. Smell is pure cherry, sour, oak, dry, intense. Taste is dry, sharp, very sour and astrigent. cherries ( wet cherries ) some ’bloody’ like ’metallic’ taste. Perhaps a bit too dry and to carbonated for my taste, but why complain, when you have a good beer in front of you ? alvinne is def. killing it with their sours lately, and while this ain’t their best to date, it is def. worth it !

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ HaandFestival 2015. Dark hazy red-hued brown body with a small off-white head. Nose is mild cherries, sour lactic tones, wood, white wine, hints of red fruits and faint citrus. Taste is sour citric tones, tart yoghurt, wood, cherries, red fruits and hints of sour berries, rhubarb and lemon zest. Medium to light body, high carbonation. Lovely tart kriek with a sour sting which is well balanced and yet quite sour, without losing the berry profile. Highly enjoyable.
