2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a weird dark color for a beer with this smell and taste. The aroma is sour, with apple and grape elements like itís a a wine or cider. The taste starts out sour but than gets sweet with a silky mouthfeel. Drinkable beer, but I wouldnít buy one again

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Cambrinus in Brugge. Very dark color - garnet when held to the light. Lacing light tan head. Near medium body. Very mild carbonation. Itís sour, but itís not. Itís smooth. Aroma has a hint of sour. Itís almost like drinking lightly sour cherry - though kriek itís not. Very refreshing. Cambrinus is pushing this one. Maybe they like it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark red cola color with a small but strong khaki head. Aroma is sweet, musky cherry which is slightly syrupy and artificial. Taste us much weaker on the cherry with light fruity sweetness. Finishes a bit mineral which takes away from the traditional slightly sour Flanders aspect. Its still easy drinking and generally light, a beginners beer for this style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Belgian Embassy in Oslo. I really though I had rated this a long time ago, and I sure have had it on some occasions, but finally a rating entered. It pours a copper to amber body, hazy, with a beige head. Slightly sourish, vinegarish nose, still sweetish, with dried fruits and malts. The flavor starts with dried fruits and a sourish note, not as sourish as I could wish for, actually itís quite sweet too. The dried fruits, sourness and sweetness goes all the way into the finish. Full-bodied and slightly sticky. Itís a nice beer, still I wish it was more hardcore. (080410)
