2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The beer pours garnet red into the glass, capped with a soft pink foam, fleeting in structure and minimizing from one finger to a thin blanket on the surface. The aroma is oaky, almost overwhelmingly so. It dominates the other accents of artificial cherry and wheat. On the first sip, I’m disappointed. Band-aids, and cherry with an oak flavor that translates too heavily into the flavor. Not a fan, and I am hoping that this bottle is not indicative of the usual presentation of this brew. Not likely I’ll finish the glass, let alone the bottle, and as it was a $16 dollar bottle, I’m beyond disappointed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared thanks to Maakun at the Get Kermis to 8k tasting. Pours very hazy red with a small pink head. Massive tart cherries in the aroma with a nice soft funk, dry cellar cobweb funk. Flavour is light to moderate sweet, light bitter and moderate sour with an almond character coming out. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours very cloudy, deep, brownish red with a small uneven pink head that reduces in a partial layer an leaves no lacing on the glass. The aroma has sour cherries, lemon, some wild yeast, and just a bit of old woody barn. The taste is light sweet but not quite dry, with a medium to high acidity tingling the tongue. The palate is rather tart, somewhat oily. Very decent sour.

Bottle. Red orange with one finger head. Found an old bottle on sale. This one aged much better than the strawberry version. Huge dry cherry. Light wine. Mild funk. Very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Nice sour cherry beer, but not as good as the best examples from Belgium.
