3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
75cl bottle with friends @ Diest Bierfest 20th Oct 2012.
Pours a true red colour with a salmon pink thin head on top.
Cherries being the main flavouring within the beer, they obviously lead the way in the aroma and taste: not as sour or powerful as say a Rodenbach Grand Cru but this isn’t from Flanders and although not sweet either it comes across as an easy going kriekbier that is well crafted and blended nicely. Based I believe around the Loterbol Blonde, but don’t quote me on that.
The only kriek we had at the festival and very pleasant it was too.

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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours clear red, small white head. Smell is cherrie, rather pure no funk or sweetness. Taste is mildly dry, full-on cherries, with a hint of natural funkyness. Very aromatic in the ending. Intense, for sure, on the cherrie side. Very one dimentionnal though. Boring, and basically this could be looked at as liquid cherrie. More of a fan of fruitbeers, where there actually is a ’beer’ taste as well. This has got no malts, hops, yeast, or anything else. Its not terrible, but who can drink a full 75 cl bottle of something this boring ?
