3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
.375 bottle. Red, with orange tones. Nose has fresh red cherries, but also quite a bit of malts and funk. Body is light. Cherries, but also funk. This is probably the most hay/funky (non-oude) kriek Iíve had in a while. Well carbonated, a bit thin maybe.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful looking beer with an aroma that alternates between sharp cherries and cow manure filled barns. Flavour is complex but a buttery note lets it down a bit. Very dry as expected and went strangely well with smoked salmon.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle cracked with some people on St Pattys day. Poured bright red with thin head and lacing. Notes are cherry, perfume, sweet stuff, and light oak. Light to medium bodied. Wasnt that sour or tart, and way too artifical perfumey to consider it a good kriek, Iíll stick to the regular Cantillon kriek and Lou Pep versions.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
37,5cl bottle @ home. Nicely red coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a large but diminishing pink white head. Cherry fruity robust aroma with some distant oaky notes. Medium to full palate. FInish is rather light rounded with a short fruity noted and a longer slightly fruit acidic sweet balanced woody ending. Rather soft.
