4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
True to the style.. Tart red fruit, tart raspberries, tart cherries and a puckering, mouthwatering, vinegary finish. Not much wood interplay, if any... Just a transparent, sour, tart, red fruit profile... RRBC Supplication comes to mind.. Although not the same.. This honestly has a touch brighter fruit and less barrel influence in comparison. Super sour, refreshing finish. No complaints. I love sours!!!

Taster at the White Horse, Parsons Green, 25th May 2011, courtesy of tdtm82. Bright, slightly hazy red. Nose has vinegar, tar, glace fruit. Just a teensy teensy bit sour... makes the previous beer taste like pear juice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Sweeter, but also more sour compared to Cantillons kriek. Big strawberry notes. Maybe not as complex and deep as other offerings, but sure drinkable and nice.

Birra intrigante e seducente come il canto di una sirena, ti avvolge con la sua sinfonia di ciliegie abbandonandoti in un limbo di acidità travolgente e pervasiva, piacevole come un sogno idilliaco. Una kriek davvero impeccabile. Hanssens è un vero maestro.
