3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.375l corked bottle from Bierkoning. This is a deep dark ruby one packed with tiny floating particles and a small bubbly quickly islandy off-white top. Oh, that’s a whole lot going on with this aroma! Is’s loaded with red berries this! Slightly acidic and ripe with woody and some nice vanilla-ish tones. Sticky red syrup with a clear sweetness blended in between all those sour berries. It has a really soft - almost flat carbonation level and a soft oily mouthfeel. Much more gentle and elegant than the aroma lead to believe. Of course the red berries is dominating, but it’s not as sour or acidic as I would have imagined. Slightly woody with lemon peal, artificial sugar sweetener and something slightly "wild". Ends with cran- and lingonberries. Quite a good one this! Petty I won’t ever taste it again. 29.12.2012

lovely funky aroma, more than sharply acidic, sweet cherry fruits and stones. Deep red, small beige ring. Nice wood-resins in the retronasals. Great flemish red. No signs of 6%. Mellow and woody. Very respectful version of the style, if I ignore the label, this comes from belgium. Good one.
