3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. An extra in trade with a long lost trading friend in Europe whos name I have unfortunately forgotten. Deep red brown color and a fine ring of head. Great aroma of sour yeast, oak wood, biscuit and hay. Acetic puckering flavor smothered with cherry and wild funk. Finish is more sweet than dry and sour like I would prefer from a kriek. Complex overall and thoroughly enjoyable! This has at least 3 years of age based on trade record and the layer of dust on it whence I pulled it from the cellar.

Murky reddish colour.
Sweet cherries and not very sour at all. More like an ordinary Belgian ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle) Pours muddy brown, almost no head. The aroma holds tart red berries (cherries and raspberries), green apples, citrus, buttery/light vanilla-driven wood, fat malt (cookies, bread and light caramel), touch of cheese, vinegar, cinnamon/spices and an interesting yeast profile. The flavour is near dry, near medium acidic with almost no bitterness. Notes of cherries, raspberries, well balanced/ malt, and vinegar alongside a touch of funk and wood. The mouthfeel is light tar and round with light carbonation. Citric and balanced malt finish. Near medium bodied.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
18th September 2009
Dirty dark red beer. Sour woody cherry nose. Dry crisp palate. Unsweet and slightly sour cherry with an edge of wood. Almost bitter not quite. An intense fruity beer but ultimately more interesting than inspiring.

Trevlig kirsebärdoft, men smaken är mer unken och mycket sträv.
