On tap at christian firtal Odense: Dark rasperry red with fine white head. Sweetness and sourness from the cherries goes very well here. Both dominates. Nice & pleasant fresh finish. A great kriek!

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 6%. Sweet, pruney aroma, a little acidic. Hazy dark red, pruney colour. Very small head. The flavour is quite sweet, some fat cherry. Also quite acidic, but not really enough to balance the berries. Rather pleasant, but has some tendency towards soft drink flavour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2010 Bottle, 375ml corked. Clear, copper-golden body, with a beige head. Quite weak nose with cherries, a bit sweetish. The flavor is sweetish as well, with cherries and some cellar. Medium, sweetish mouthfeel. Long, sweet finish with some citrus notes. I find it too sweet, but it is certainly drinkable. Rating: 6-4-6-3-12-3.1. 070526
Bottle, 375ml corked and wrapped in paper. It pours an unclear, ruby body and a thin layer of off-white bubbles. Cherries, oxidation, cellar, dried fruits, brown sugar and a hint of vinegar. Sort of candy-like too. The flavor is sour yet sweet. Cellar, dried fruits, cherries, a hint of vinegar and a faint note of almond. Medium body, quite tart and palate cleansing even though it’s quite sweet. The finish has cherries on a vinegarish backdrop, with dried fruits and cellar. Pleasant and easy drinking, combining sweetness and sourness in a nice way. 101119

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(375ml bottle, vintage 2004, best by 9/14, 5% ABV) Large beige head with pink notes, atop a clear red body. Aroma is medium sweet, sour cherry, light barnyard, oak. Taste is moderately sweet, cherry, light tartness/sourness, faint oak. Low carbonation, slightly sticky light-medium body, quite drinkable. Needs a bit more tartness and carbonation, but it does pretty well despite these quibbles.
