Bottle at iron abbey. Medium brown pour. Funky, lightly cherry aroma. Fruity, cherry, very oily, sticky. Minimal carbonation, no lacing. Nice sour finish. Not lindemanís but good.

íRedí Kasteelbier since 2007 and, as Van Honsebrouck has always done, seeking connection with a trend, in this case of heavy sweet cherry beers, popular nowadays in Wallonia and northern France. Very dark red beer with brownish hue and pinkish head, more complex than usual in sweet fruit beers, with - except from the more than obvious cherry liqueur - hints of pear, dates and candi sugar. Taste dominated by sweet cherry liqueur and artificial fruit, full but too sweet and sticky for my tooth, though I have to admit this is better than many of its congeners.

11.2oz bottle, thanks to Sean Y. Bottled on 2013/10/09. Mostly clear very dark red color. Appears near-black in poor lighting. Thin light brown / off-white head, that leaves some loose bits of lace. Pretty nice cherry nose. Like the maraschino cherries that they put in sodas. Taste is like a belgian brown ale (not a sour brown). Maybe just a light bit of sourness from the cherries, but itís very mild tart. Moderate bitter taste, more dry finish. Light to moderate sweet, a little alcohol warmth. Taste is not that impressive compared to the nose, tastes kind of like an alco-pop. Light belgian spiciness. Bigger body. Kind of a stronger, softer carbonation. Kind of slick. Not terrible, but not great at all. Below average as far as belgians go. Not impressed. A pretty slow sipper. Would have been a good 11.2oz bottle to split, rather than try to chief myself. Didnít get too much worse as I went, though, stayed pretty consistent. Ended up finishing, over a longer period of time.

Gurthnar (1648) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 14, 2014
Tap at Le Senk. Aroma mostly cherry, quite intense. Clear deep ruby colour, white head with a pink tint. Strong cherry in taste. I also get light walnuts and faint hints of caramel. Quite intensely sweet, lacking some kind of balance. Good beer, but IMO single-dimensional and unbalanced.

Krigla (35) - SLOVENIA - AUG 12, 2014
Dark red colour with dissapearing pink head. Average carbonation. Strong cherry aroma and sweet/sour taste. There is no alcohol in the aftertaste even though it 8%. Overall...not my kind of beer. I think beer shoud be bitter and not taste like a fruit juice with bubbles.

Een heel lekker bier, smaakt als een kriekbier, maar met een hoge alcoholgraad.

Too sweet!!!! It's a little bit like a fruit juice. I think that beer must have a hoppy taste!!

Bottles from Rehills, Newcastle and Mam and Dadís holiday, Lisbon. A very dark brown beer with ruby red highlights. It has sweet black cherry flavours, more red fruit notes and a warming slight tart fruity finish.
