bierkoning (9826) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2010
Bottle. Clear red color. Soft cherry aroma. Initial cherry flavor, almost vinous, with cherry pits, oak, marzipan and leather. Bitter walnuts. Plastic. Bone dry, but surprisingly thin and watery. A bit disappointing.

rlgk (9476) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2013
RBESG 2013. Bottle during Grand Tasting at De Molen. Bottle from 2010. Hazy deep red beer with a nice pinkish head. Fruity cherry aroma, strawberries, caramel, toffee and vanilla notes. Sweetish cherry seeds flavor, caramel, strawberries, hay, sourish, rubber notes, tart, some lingonberries. Nice and complex beer.

pivnizub (8580) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2010
Bottle: Almost clear, bigger loose pinkish head, that quite quickly collapses, deep reddish-amber coloured; dry sourish fruity (cherries, what else) and - not artificial(!) - almondy nose with some malt underneath; quite dry sour-bitter flavour with a well hidden sweetness, medium bodied; solid fruity and almondy finish, balanced by a delicate malty sweetness. What a surprise! A fine brew......

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2010
(bottle, 75cl) Hazy, reddish brown colour with a collapsing red frothy head. Moderately sweet and yeasty almondy cherry-fruity aroma with a delicate malt character. Moderately sour and slightly bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Dry cherry-fruity and slightly malty taste with notes of almonds; dry fruit-accented and slightly bitter finish with a delicate malty sweetness. Well-rounded and moreish brew. 13.I.09

GT2 (7875) - Carlsbad, California, USA - APR 12, 2010
750mL courtesy of Travlr. Pours a clear pink with a large, fizzy, pinke head that has very good retention and lace. Aroma is cherry pie, baked cherries, burnt currant. Taste is spritzy raspberry seltzer water, lots of mineral water, missing the body. No sourness or kriek notes.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2007
(Cold) hazy, dark red beer with medium, pink-coloured headd. Fresh cherry juice nose, some faraway wood (served terribly cold), and more than in the taste, alcohol. Sharpish cherry flavour, bit of cinnamon retronasal. Virtually no sweetness, sharp but not agressive acids Apart from the obvious cherry flavours, I detect some flavour as from red beets, strangely. Rather light body, acids helping; lipsmacking tartnes; Good kriek, not overly assertive, but very satisfying. Like it.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2010
Bottle @ pre-GBBF shindig, August 2009. Pink & pleasant. Fruit comes through well - seems real rather than artificial. Some bretty farmyard and tart notes. Crisp and refreshing. Very little residual sweetness. I wasn’t expecting too much but got a pleasant surprise.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2008
A Mes rate: Bottle thanks to Jean at Moeder Lambic.
A nice clean candy apple red colour with a thin white head and lots of lace. The cherries are very restrained and the bas beer is a little more obvious than maybe I would like. The end result is rather strange and the base beer and the fruit never quite marry. The delicate sourness is good and there is some good citric notes in the finish. Odd hints of strawberry yogurt. Interesting beer but not amazing.

Benzai (6409) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2012
75cl @ ZZT III, courtesy of Joes. Very hazy ruby red color, small slightly pink head. Smell unripe red fruits, sourness. Taste red fruits, sourness. Prettty dry finish. Medium body and carbo. Decent.

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2013
75cl bottle courtesy of 77ships @ RBBSG II. Couleur rougeâtre trouble, col beige. Arôme est fruité griotte gardant ce bouquet fruité prenant rappelant le vieillissement en cave de par ce côté fermenté. Palais donne bien le profil des griottes, fine note aigre mais restant facile à approcher. Point positif pour une bière qui ne tombe pas dans l’usage de faux sucre et autres édulcorants, ici le fruité est mis en avant. Le malt arrive en retrait pour consolider la base de fruit.
