2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2006 vintage opened in 2015. Flat w no head or carbonation. Aroma of cherry candy and sweet hay. Sweet candy cherry bomb on the front that gives a slick mouthfeel. Becomes a little tart in the middle but finishes sweet. Some additional raisin and plum notes - probably from the aging. Ok but a bit too candy sweet. Needs to be tarter.

The kriek in this series, made from 2003 till Riva went bankrupt and fortunately not restored by Moortgat so far; very sweet, syrupy kriek, tasting and smelling of not much else but overtly sweet cherry extracts. I am glad the trend of light, witbier-based, onedimensionally sweet fruit beers seems to have passed a bit now.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer pours a hazy reddish-brown color with a medium foamy off-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherries and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of tart cherry, malt and roasted nuts. The finish is mildly tart with a short cherry aftertaste. Average overall.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a red beer with a small pink not long lasting head. It smells like cherry, much cherry. Very very sweet.
The taste is very juicy. Cherry lemonade , very sweet and little sour.
It has a thin body, watery texture and a lively carbo. This one is way to sweet and missing the alcohol.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On draft at Burp Castle. Bright red pour and a pleasant, perfumey, strawberry aroma. This is sweet and fruity, and is a little too close to soda pop for comfort. It seems to contain artificial flavors. Come on, Burp Castle, you can do better than this.
