Copper red body with no head at all... Tiny bubbles are visible. Strong apple vinegar notes, some red berries, clean yeast, very little residual sugars. Some sweetness returns when warming up. Taste is actually more moderate in sourness. Unformatenatly the aging with cherries, although bringing some fruit hints, made the beer a bit thinner which is what I like so much about the ’normal’ Lief & Leed. Still great stuff though. (After Boreft 2012’s Friday)

33cl, new exclusive Dutch brew Anno 2012, with cherries, from De Bierkoning Amsterdam, complex sour fruit brew, malty/sour and slightly fruity/woody, yet not balanced, cloudy, nearly no head, nice brew, yet expensive!

yngwie (16315) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2012
On tap at HaandFestival 2012. It pours an almost clear, amber body, lacking head and carbonation. Caramel, some vinegar and some wood on the nose, not as much cherries as I’d expect. That goes for the flavor too, which is a bit on the weak side, with the same vinegar and wood found in the aroma. Lacking the pepper I enjoyed so much in the un-cherried edition. Medium to full body, tart and flat, finishing with vinegar notes. Overall, rather boring, I certainly prefer the regular edition. 120504

dutchbeerpages (2129) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2012
Could have been a higher score because this is an ugly looking beer. No carbonation, dirty red. It is of a nice sourness however with the cherries coming right through it. You have to bite through the sour cherries, but after that it is very nice. Bottle from De Bierkoning.

TrefwoordPunk (876) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle 30 cl. Pours a dark red without any head and has an aroma of vinegar and wine that has been in an opened bottle for to long. The taste is tart and sour, with notes of cherries and elderberries.I didn’t expect any beer like this from De Molen, but I really like it!

On tap at Haand Festival 2012 Aroma of malts, berries, some red currants, but mostly a cherry bomb.. Nice sour taste and tart fruits. This is exactly what it promise to be: Lief & Leed on cherries :) Being the last beer of the evening the notes are of poor quality.
