Nice cherry sweet aroma. Deep orange red color. Fresh sweet fruit up front. Cicely balanced with dry sourness that is very palatable. Dry tart finish that is refreshing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful dark rasberry with huge cherry head. Sour cherry sherbert in the nose. A slightly sour cherry is my first impression, then a salty funkiness creeps in. Delicious. This is quickly becoming my favorite style of beer. It seems the added Kriek was more pronounced in the front, then the Goudenband amd funkness seemed more apparent midway through. The only other beer I have tried with kriek was Belle-Vue, and this blows that away.

Pours a murky raspberry brown with fluffy pinkish head. Smell- sweet and sour cherries. Taste- initial cherry sweetness that turns moderately tart. The cherry flavour is not overpowering which is nice. Plays well with the pale malts. Carbonation is high and helps create a nice tart sprtizy finish. Good drinkability.
