Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this 2008 bottle at the pre-BTBF tasting. Red pour with a white head. The aroma is full of slightly tart cherries and a bit of biscuit malt. The flavor follows suit with a lot of sweet, sugary cherry notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2013 75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBESG 2013. 2010 Vintage. Pours dark raspberry red with a pinkish head. Nose is very full of fruits, more cherry than kriek, light raspberry, almost cloying, very jam-like. Taste is blend of cherries & kriek, less tang than I am used of the kiek (the fruit), light hint of iron (maybe the age), touch thin but very easy to drink, oodles of fruit, somewhat fruit sweety with a jam impression, kriek pits in there, light berries in s pices in the finish. Fine carb. very easy to drink. Would have been superb with some sourness but as this stands this is pretty much what a fruit beer should be, fruits & not chemical nonsense. Great stuff. ///// Shared another 75 cl. bottle @ RBBSG II, total gusher & not bad but not as good as the firt time around, bit too metallic & thin, same vintage, keeping previous score for now

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at RBESG ’13 Grand Tasting. Pours dark red with a medium pink head. Aroma is sourish, some cherries and a bit of barnyard. Taste is quite sweet, like pure lemonade syrup, cherries, a little bit of funk and a dry finish. Medium body, medium to heavy carbo. Too sweet for me, could use some more sourness.

Bottled @ RBESG 2013 Grand Tasting. Dark reddish color, short head. Aroma of loads of cherries and cherry pits, marzipan. Soft sourness, quite fruity. Got some bitterness as well, but mostly lots of fruity sweetness. Little too much carbonation. Lots of fruit, could have used a bit more sourness.
