2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Blend of their regular oud bruin with their kriek, which they make only once a year in very limited edition and named after the buffalo statue in their garden which refers to the liberators of the first World War. Almost no head, colour bronze with reddish hue, misty. Aroma of sour cherries, chocolate, sour cream, hay, strawberry, passion fruit. Estery fruity taste mixed with a genuine presence of sour cherries, subdued oud bruin character with soft malt sweetness, thin and almost watery body, dryish finish because of the sourness of the cherries. I like their normal oud bruin better.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
25 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. BBF 31/12/2014. This is one I have been wanting to try for some time. Pours a dark red vinous, almost no tanned head. Nose is simply wonderful, smells like a glass of cherry and kriek juice, the kind you can get a the supermarket in a pack, very faintly vinous, touch tart but mostly just slightly sugary juice. Really liking the smell. Taste is bitter kriek pits, mix of kriek and cherry juice, touch candy in the back, touch sugary and metallic, some gelatine candy, very faintly metallic vinous note. Body is metallic juice, pleasing lower carb. Nice but could use more sourness in my opinion and if they did that and got rid of the metallic note we would have a real winner here. I checked Joris P. his notes and I think that I would go crazy if I could try the “unmixed contents of the cherry fermenters”.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
25cl bottle. Dark red with small head.
NOSE : tart, cooked fruits, apple, cherry, wood.
SIP : creamy texture with decent carbonation. Medium body. It starts with sweet tart flavors backed by sour cherry. Neither sweet nor sour prevails on the beginning. it gets a bit more sour and ends with fruity dry, clove and cherries like feeling. Develops some metallic and spicy aftertaste.
OVERALL : the beer is mild and smooth. Well balanced but lacks longer finish and more character. Still a nice treat.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Red-amber pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong brown sugar and cherry notes as well as some vinegar. The flavor is more acetic with some cherries and toffee thrown in. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
