3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle shared by beastiefan2k. Pour is a lightly hazed ruby red, with a brilliant white head. Aroma is cinnamon, cherry fruit, along with warming sugar sweet malt. Taste is the cherry up front, tannin cherry skin, and the warming cinnamon malt, and then thins out with a clean fruit finish (cherry plus some sweeter strawberry). As it warms, a touch of tartness enters the picture, though this was certainly not the main story. Palate is light bodied, along with soft natural carbonation, body thins way out in the finish. Interesting, though the fruit is a bit less assertive than I normally enjoy in this type of beer. Thanks for sharing this Eugene.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Chrisoís Pre-GBBF Shindig. Massive gusher, this bottle. Pours deep hazy red with a medium white head. The nose is loads of cherry, strawberry, sweet sugar. The taste is light tart cherries, a bit of funk and yeast. Light body, fairly soft. Decent.

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 isnít 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 donít quote me on that.
The only kriek we had at the festival and very pleasant it was too.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle purchased at Bierkoning on my Amsterdam trip in October, 2011 and shared at a KC gathering. 2008 bottle consumer in 2011. Pours with a thick head that fades quickly. Color is thick dark red. Aroma shows signs of age but cherry dominates. There is sweet yet natural cherry aroma with a natural musky element. As someone at the gathering stated, its like cherry pie. Flavor sweet pie with tart cherry at the back of the flavor. No age in the flavor. Mouthfeel is light and tangy. The beer is a nice fruit-beer beer akin to New Glarus but a but more natural with the musk. Pricey but fun if you want a non-artificial cherry beer.
