2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma hard to discern. Flavour sour fruit, and lambic funky. Taste of cherries come through in the end. Sharp ending. Sherbet and eyes tight shut. Interesting and obviously a good quality example of this style, but not sure if I would drink it again.

Samen gedronken met dutchdrebus, robijn kleurtje, geen schuim wel bubbels, ruikt zuur en zoet, kersen, beetje muf, weinig koolzuur, smaakt zuur. Normale lief en leed vind ik een stuk lekkerder.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home, shared with my girlfriend. Copper to bordeaux red colour with no head at all. Smells red fruits, cherries, wood, fresh, sweet and quite delicious actually. Tastes cherries, red fruits, slightly sour, fresh and refreshing. Thin to medium body and there’s hardly any carbo, which makes it feel thin and flat.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl. bottle @ home. Red colored, somewhat hazy. Head is non-existant. Aroma’s: cherries, almonds, sourish, somewhat funky (lambic-like). The funkiness is not or hardly present retronasal. Flavor is medium sour, cherries, almonds, not more than a hint of malty sweetness. Carbonation is low. Body is medium. Slightly dry and light bitter finish. Nice but not completely satisfying (I miss wood).

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
No head, some bubbles, kind of flat, a murky warmer red ish orange colored beer.
Smell yeast, sour, urine, cooked vegetables, incense, sauerkraut...
Taste sour, yeast, sour fruits, cherries, lemon sour, cooked vegetables, berries, not much else...
Aftertaste is a very light mix of some hints of sour fruit, yeast and tart yeast and malts.
No carbo, watery mouthfeel, medium body and a watery texture.
Ok beer, but did let me down a bit. Actually this could be one of the beers of de Graaf van Heumen, all the sauerkraut...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Clear amber pour, no head. Aroma is balsamic vinegar, cherries, oak, varnish, some fruits, a hint of spices. Flavor is slightly sour, fruity and more vinegar. Quite mild and totally flat. Lost the bite of the original without gaining much from the cherries.

Bottle. Pours amber/red with no head, completely flat. Aroma has some sour woody notes and a hint of cherry. Similar taste, quite bland. Lightly sour and flat carbonation. Very bland and boring. I was expecting something either much better or much worse. This is just disappointing
