4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy magenta pour with 1-finger pink head. Aroma of strong tart cherries, some peaty woodsy malt, and some oaky funk. The flavor is mostly tart cherries, with some boggy, peaty malt notes. Not as tart as Cantllon’s offerings, but much less sweet than the New Glarus Red. I’ll bet a mix of 2 parts Cantillon kriek with 3 parts New Glarus would give an approximation of this beer. At any rate, it is rock solid.

Bottle. Cherry is in good blance with the beer in this fluidum, but it is more like a lambic.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2009 Catford Beer Festival. Shared a bottle with Harrisoni. First sample poured carefully without sediment. Red coloured with a pink head. Sharp, fruity aroma with lots of woody notes, spice and pepper. To taste there is lots of pleasing dryness, tart cherry character, oak and mostly sour. Rather like a kriek lambic. With the sediment poured in the it was less attacking, the sourness smoothed out and the carbonation also. A really rather interesting beer.

75cl bottle shared with Joeh at Catford BF 06. Hazy red colour with thin pink head. Sour farmyard aroma. Faint red cherry. Interesting sourness in mouth. Farmyard is quite strong on aroma. Added a bit of yeast and made it creamier. The guy pouring it, poured it clear and gave us the sediment in a separate glass.

Bottle... Cloudy, orange-red ale with a mid-sized, creamy, pink head. Great retention. Woodsy, acidic aroma. Must, lemon and cherries. Sour cherry flavor with lots of astringent wood and no sweetness. Medium-bodied and sharp with sufficient carbonation. Sour, dry finish. Very nice!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a nice, deep reddish color. Thin pinkish head. Sour cherries fill the aroma. Taste is very dry and very sour/tart. A decent amount of cherries hit the tastebuds.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 0,75 lt, vintage 2004
Deep cherry red, clear, small firm reddish head. Earthy, sour fruity nose - very Cantillon-like. Sour cherries, overall somehow watery palate with metallic notes. Dry, delicious sour-fruity finish and long sour aftertaste. Earthy notes. Alcohol is completely hidden. Extremely drinkable "lambic", just lacks some "deep fruityness" of eg. Cantillon Kriek.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2007 Pours dark red with a nice pink head. Very sour with aromas of vinegar and sour cherries. Sour and slightly bitter finish. We tried to mix this one with the abnormaly sweet Kasteel Donker - They both got a bit better.
