4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: dark reddish brown, small off-white head.
Great complex aroma, fruity sourness, apple and plums, but also some caramel and quite some vanilla. Nice woody aftertaste, and a bit funky, but not too much. Taste seems not as full as a few years ago.
My favourite beer, Iím very happy I can buy it close by. Once openend one after keeping it a year, and it was even better - maybe Iíll do another rating of that later.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a deep brown with some mahogany highlights. Green apple, cherry and muscat on the nose with a light bit of oak. Nose is very vinous. Above average carbonation with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Finish has some dates and more cherry, muscat and a hint of oak and vanilla. A Belgian classic, very drinkable and enjoyable sour. Pairs well with food too.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
At home, bottle. Clear dark brown with white head. Didnít expect the dark color! Fruity, sugary sweetness, with sour bend. Roastedness, roasted grain, sour grain, very old fermented cherries, chocolate malts. Over medium sweetness, under medium sour. High pitched sweetness like sugar replacements, aspartame & other crap. Very easy going, a bit too easy, kinda bland and mainly sweet. Enjoyed the kriek much more.
