A typical Flemish beer with a pleasant wine-like taste and a rich past. This dark brown beer, which is matured in oak casks, has a slightly acid aftertaste.

A 375ml wrapped bottle with a best before date of 25th November 2016 and poured into a Duvel tulip glass. It poured a clear dark brown colour with a less than one finger tanned head that dissipated quickly but leaves some nice stringy lacing. Aromas are mainly tart cherries with some grape, apple juice and vinegary elements. Taste is similar to the aromas with tart cherry sourness and grape bubblegum sweetness with hints of apple juice and brown sugar. Light bodied, with mid to high carbonation. Overall this was better than the Kriekenbier version that I tried before. However, unfortunately, according to the wrapping, it seems they add Stevia to the beer. I dont use sugar substitute sweeteners in anything ever, and I dont see why I need to start doing so in beers.

Draft that pours a medium to dark brown soft mellow wine like sour. Aroma is mild and smooth. The flavor is mild to medium sour with wine characteristics. Not overly sour easy to drink.

Dogbrick (11021) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle at Winking Lizard. The beer pours a ruby-brown color with a medium light beige head that recedes steadily. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of fruit, yeast and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of tart berries, yeast and bready malt. The finish is moderately tart with a fruity aftertaste. Decent overall.

Kosmokrator (812) - ITALY - DEC 2, 2015
Rossastra e frizzante, acidula e dolciastra al naso, setosa e vinosa al palato. Note di zucchero di canna, caramello, canditi, buccia di agrumi, sentori acetici. Piacevole ma non favolosa.

A beautiful umber liquid with a fizzy tan head says hello! Oak, vanilla, tart cherries, cranberry, red wine, licorice and milk chocolate comprise the aroma, the flavour being much the same with an enjoyable corny cereal note on the back end. Cheerily tart and refreshing, this ends with a sweet back end and beckons another sip. Not overly complex but very enjoyable all the same.

biir (653) - Berlin, - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle - Dark red color, head disappears quite fast. Strong aromas of red berries, grapes and malt. Light, champagne-like body with high carbonation. Apparently they added Stevia. Easy to drink and refreshing. Great!

Little on the nose and found it on the whole to be rather flat with little sourness.

AgentAle (1421) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2015
Aroma is sweet malts, soured grapes, very light candy sugar, and light funk. Taste is very much the same with some tang and sour notes on the tip. Not too complex however. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.
