2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, sampled with Dennoman. Pours clear reddish light amber, no head, totally flat. Aroma is quite terpentine alike and artificial cherry aromas. Light body, kirsh alike balance between sweetness and alcohol, bland flavour. Not my type of fruit beer. At all.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[bottle from Bier Cellar]
Slight pickle juice and balsamic vinegar aroma with black cherries, white grape, and sweet cranberry. Perhaps a faint vanilla note as well. Slightly hazy ruby under a quickly dropping off-white and light pink fizz that leaves a collar with tight beading. Flavour is a refreshing, mouth-puckering sour cherry and lemon with some light woody accents. Light body, medium to high carbonation, mouth watering finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Refrigerated 75 cl brown 2013 bottle corked and capped poured into a glass. Clear red with small off-white head. Aroma is nice strong sour, medium body, low/medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is sour, tart cherries, lemons, some oak, and long acidic finish. Complex, pretty easy to drink (although I understand this would be too sour for some), really flavorful, really enjoy this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle, shared with some buds. Deep red pour, small ring of lacing. Definitely worth noting that this is described as a Flemish Red and not a kriek, as it is dark and acidic as all get out. Definite acetic red wine vinegar mixing with deep rich cherry flavor and oaken tannin. A bit unbalanced, but I’m cool with it.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
At dark suds. Nice red color, heavy cherry nose. Big cherry up front, nothing but acetic acid in the finish. Vinegar kills this for me.
