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

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Almost flat amber pour with minimal bubbles. Plenty of cherry aroma, a moderate sourness, some light malt sweetness, and a hint of red wine vinegar. Hints of grass, a bit of leather, and maybe some balsamic notes. The cherry flavor is a bit less impressive than the aroma. Plenty of balsamic and red wine vinegar notes, oak, grass, and a light tannic quality.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl. bottle shared with Belgbeergeek & Vincent @ hotel room. Opaque red amber with almost no head. Smells like sweet tart cherries, medium vinegar, berries, light clean wood, defiantly way more cleared out than the original. Sour lightly tart cherries with some sweeter cherries blended in, light malt, tad vinegar, touch spices, light wood, minor touch herb. Way better than the regular, the cherries have not only cleared it out a bit but appear to complete the beer - like they always should have been there. Quite neat stuff.
