3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, courtesy of Meilby. It looks quite ugly in the glass, with an unclear, reddish dark golden body and a minimal off-white head. Just a ring ouf bubbles actually. Cherries on the nose, with some oak, vanilla, maltyness and a good dash of vinegar. Its mouthfeel is of course acidic and puckering, but also sort of like drinking whip cream. Lots of cherry and vinegar both initially and in the end. Well, I like the aroma and flavor, but it still isn’t very nice. 110524

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small white head. Hazy bright red body. Intense lacquer, cherries, and wood aroma with metallic notes. Dry-sweet-acidic toffee marzipan cherry taste with floral notes. Mid-bodied. Sharply acidic and astringent mouthfeel, so strong it burns. Dry waxy floral cherry aftertaste with metallic earthy notes. Extreme, but somehow nice. A bit much acid, though. (0.25l bottle from some shop in Copenhagen. I forget which.)

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Max. Pours initially a violet reddish clear, then hazes towards the bottom from the sediment- thin fizzy dissipating head. Aroma is nice sour cherry, cherry juice, light aceto-flemish red kick but still very pleasant, slight sweet tart candy, light fruity brett kick, and hints of old wood. Flavor is light caramel malt covered with sour cherry, cherry juice cherry pit, Flemish red mixed with kriek, medium to light sweet cherry in the middle, turns slightly bitter and woody in the end with a medium to light tartness. Pretty good, but not great.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle, 0.25 l, from Kihoskh, 20110417) The beer poured red and quite clear. Its head was very small and pinkish. Aroma had cherries, wood, sourness, cherry stones and mildly solvent. Palate was medium bodied, warming and quite dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were sourness, cherries, sugary sweetness, wood and hint of bitterness. Aftertaste had sourness and cherries. I would have liked this better if the beer had had less alcohol, Now the burning hid some of the pleasant flavours.
