4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
1989 version sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm.
Brownish red. Balsamic black cherry aroma. Fresh cherryish fruit sweetness balanced by tart acidity. Still so fresh after years! Wonderfully balanced citric acid finish. Perhaps not very complex, but extremely tasty and intense.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
15 years old, Café Morshuis, Albergen. What a surprise to see this beer in a village pub in Twente. Orange red color, cloudy with a small head. Not so muddy as the framboise. Very good lacing. Not a very pronounced aroma: some fruit and some citrus. Thinner as the framboise. Cherry flavor with hints of almond and lemon. Eased down sourness, not too sweet. Lacks the complexity of the really sour krieks like Cantillon, but still a wonderful beer in very good condition.
