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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle at home. pours blonde/red and is as flat as a paper. i did NOT see that coming ! smells like old cherries, but just a bit. taste is flat, hint of sourness, hint of cherries. drinkable like some fruitjuice, but not overwhelmingly much taste. still nice though. but i’d say a bit too wattery for a beer ( no carbo, taste are onley hints of.. ) i think if this were a every-where available beer many people would be drunk before they’d realize it

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours a rusty red brown with no head. The nose has a tart cherry smell with hints of grapes and red fruit. The palette taste like a Flanders brown with a sour cherry flavor. And has a lite tobacco flavor and tannic cherry finish.
