3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Even though this beer has no head whatsoever, it still looks nice. Cry warm brown colour with red and orange tints. Aroma is a dusty cherry funkiness with earthy and woody notes. Taste is rather sour with the same earthiness and woody notes as the aroma has. A hint of vanilla as well. And cherries of choose. Body is ok and carbonation could have been a bit livelier. Nice beer.

Bottle from beernavigator. Pours brown/reddish, little carbonation no head. Lots of lambic tones on the nose; vinaeger, wet wood, cherries and funk. Lambic like in the mouth as well but flatter and less acidic and little tone of cherries, well balanced, very dry and a really nice drink.

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...
