Hazy red. Bubbly pinky head disappears quickly. Cherry aroma, with a bit of citrus. Taste sour and sweet. Oxalic acid on the teeth.

Vignale (1979) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2014
Flaska från Beernavigator. Brunröd, klar vätska med krämigt lågt ljusbrunrött skum. Stor doft av söta solmogna körsbär som är trevlig och inte alls artificiell. Söt smak med mycket körsbär. Lite som en söt cider, väl dold alkohol, fin körsbärssmak men tyvärr alldeles för söt. Funkar ändå väl kyld i solen med några isbitar i. Bra smaker som inte är artificiella. Trevlig trots för stor sötma.

14/IV/14 - 37.5cl bottle from Smetje en Zoon @ home - BB: 20/IX/13 (2014-365)

Clear red brown beer, big beige irregular head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet, lots of cherry candy, syrupy, that’s about it. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet cherry candy, syrupy, bit lemony, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: sweet and sugary, cherry candy, bit lemony, bit of caramel. Meh.

EddyBeer1 (832) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2014
Rouge légèrement brunâtre, effervescence faible, col rose moyen et crémeux. Un rien boisée, trop sucrée, plus d’arômes que de fruits (15%), quasi pas de lambic. Est-ce vraiment une kriek?

Icedwarf (256) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2014
Donkerrood bier met lichte schuimkraag. Smaak is licht zuur, en niet te overdreven prettig fruitig. Blijft niet erg lang hangen.
