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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a beautiful glowing reddish pink with an equally beautiful head of pink froth and lacing. The aroma is heavily acidic with notes of horse-hair, almonds, vanilla, and a huge wallop of sour cherries. The body is spritzy, light, refreshing, and exceedingly dry. The flavors are dominated with the sour cherries that are encased and magnified by the incredible sourness of the brett and lactic cultures. The finish is dry and quick with no off-flavors whatsoever.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Murky red body. Nose is muddled cherry, soured fruits, and light woodiness. Taste is tart cherries but has a light sweetness to it. Some light barnyardy type flavors, along with some wet wood and a hint of earth tones add to this. Body is sharp and acidic with a dryness throughout around the edges and during the finish. Ends with more sour cherry, light woody flavors, faint damp earthiness, and light barnyardy notes.

Dark red colored pour with not much head at all. Nice black cherry aroma with a mild sour cherry taste. I like the smell better than the taste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Almost vinegar like sour cherry aroma. Red colored beer with a thick and creamy pink head that lasts. Acidic and sour cherry flavor is mouth puckering yet extremely easy to drink. Almost chuggable. Dry and tangy finish. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(03/2006) Someone said this was better than a Hanssens Kriek ... I disagreed, but this, indeed, is a tasty, tasty beer. Deep, hazy red with a spritzy, unlasting, pink head. Big cherry aromas with acidic and woody notes as well. Citric, lemony acidity mixes well with an oaky, deeply cherry taste. Complex play of all of these flavors that changes as the glass warms up. Very spritzy, medium-bodied, and dry on the palate. A fine, drinkable beer.

Thanks to Tim! Brownish/orange red. Nose has cherries, funk, some balsamic, oak, lemon. Cherry, good strong malt, oak, sweet tarts. A drier version of what I remember the orig. Rodenbach being.
