Dark red pour with a pink head. Nice rich cherry aroma with plenty of fruit and cherry skin notes. Some nice lactic tartness, a bit of grass, a mild musty funk, and some red fruits. A huge cherry character on the palate. Nice tartness, lemon zest, and musty funk. Great cherry skin, slight sweetness, with a dry finish.

37,5 cl bottle, courtesy of K0mpsa. Intereting aroma of sour cherry and red flowers with some earthy notes. Flavor is fruity and deep full of black cherry and berries. Too much for me, but surely an interesting one.

Bottle 0.375l from Edeka Mohr Bonn. Pours a deep hazy red with a pink head. Aroma is sour cherries, some sweetness. Taste is very intense sour cherries, light sweetness in the end. I really like the intense cherry flavour here. Not an ultra tart kriek. Good stuff.
