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 at Kulminator. Hazy red brown coloured with a light brown head. Aroma of wood and berries with light acidic notes. Light acidic flavour of berries and wood. Tart finish of berries and wood.

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!

Draught@Kulminator 05/2007... Clowdy red colour ... sharp cherry nose ... cherry vinegar ... lots fo depth ... very fruity ... hints of pickled onion ... Am i a philistien for thinking this would be a good salad dressing....

On tap at Erasmus 08/2009... deep red ... sharp sour nose with a lot of cherry ... sharp lemon sour in flavour ... light cherry ... and again pickled onions.... really not me.

MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2007
Draught at Kulminator. Sourish aroma, has a bit of winegum cherry. Seemingly clear deep red colour. Semi-stable, disappearing pink/grey head. Quite sour flavour with some cherry to it. Finishes with a clean citric/lemony cherry aftertaste.

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.

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.

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 17, 2009
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.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2006
Tap, Kulminator in Antwerp. One of the very last glasses. Oak and a touch of cherries in the aroma. Cherry, cherry pits, vanilla and oak in the flavor. Tart. Great beer!
