brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bright red pour with a pink head. Sweet cherry candies on the nose. Very sweet and sugary, a hint of cough syrup, and Ludens cough drops. Tastes like cherry Lifesavers with a hint of sourness. Candy sweetness, mild cough syrup, and tons of sugar.

Wischylini (211) - Grimstad, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2015
Pours dark red, with no head. The aroma is very simple, and is dominated by cherry cola and almonds. The taste is so overly sweet that it feels like drinking a soda, and there’s neither bitterness nor any sour taste present. The mouthfeel is average, and the carbonation is medium. Resembles and alcopop more than a kriek, extremely one-dimensional.

Rojo rubí intenso con transparencia, espuma corta sin adherencia. Esteres a cereza altos, notas medicinales, ligero brettanomyce (establo) propio del estilo, lúpulo nulo. En boca acidez de cereza alta, malta dulce y fresca, lúpulo bajo. Final cítrico con notas medicinales prolongado, acidez propia del estilo. Cuerpo bajo, carbonatación baja. Buena cerveza lambic.
