4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From tap at Kulminator as Liefmans Naturkriek - apparently the last available keg. Pours murky orange with a diminished pink head. Dry cherry acidic aroma. Light phenolic note. Flavour holds a solid phenolic note to an initial cherry fruity flavour. Almost rodenbach like. Lasting acetone-ish phenolic finish. Fantastic.

Draught@Kulminator. Murky ruby brown colour. Aroma is superbly sour cherries with some hints of nuts. Flavour is dry cherries, nuts and some wooden hints. A very sour and dry thing, but still really refreshing. One of the most mouthdrying beers I have ever had. Marvellous thing!

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2006 On draught at The Kulminator, Antwerp during LCRBM2 This is just about my favourite drink to have at the end of a session. The sour cherry, the good malt (more so than in the bottle version), just the harmony of the fruit and sourness and alcohol and flavour. Had to finish this to get the Struise Christmas beer on.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dezent saurer Antrunk, zum Mittelteil deutlich stärker. Ein leichtes Fruchtaroma ist hier erkenbar und wird im Nachgeschmack schwächer, bleibt aber auf angenehmem Level. Weiter sauer, sehr lecker!

Tap at Erasmus. Pours a deep cherry red with small bubbles. Aroma of fairly sour cherries - Schaerbeekse. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is sour. Also cherry. Smooth. Acidic mellowing to tart. It’s woody. It’s the best cooking cherry.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2009 (Draught at Erasmus, 3 samples) The waitress asks what beer I would like to try and with an anxious smile I ask for the Ongezoet op Vat. The waitress gives me a look back and pauses…. “Do you know that this beer is unsweetened?” she asks. I responded, “yes, thank god!” All I had drunk for the past two days in Bruges were sweetened lambics… The beer comes to the table with a lightly hazy glistening red body with a spare ring of tiny white bubbles atop. The aroma is very clean and refreshing like stepping outside in the spring to the essence of the dew in the garden, fresh cherries, perfume on a sexy young lady, and some light barnyard scents in the distance. Flavor of assertive acidic cherries and lots of funkiness. Perfectly refreshing, mouthwatering, endorphin rocking symphony in my mouth. I would make this a staple in my cellar, if they only bottled this heavenly delight.
