3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2012 Bottle shared at CPK. Thanks, Ken. Pours rich red with a light pink head. Tart, sweaty raspberry and cherry nose. Nice and acidic flavor, some dry berries, quite sour with dank cherries. Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes very tart with some earthy, bitter fruits, pits and rinds, with definite notes of boozy cherries. Nice beer. (4.0)
At Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours clearish red with a fine, pink foam head. Zippy tart cherry nose, some pit earthiness. Light sweet flavor with moderate tartness, some bitter cherry pits, dirt. Light bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Pretty bitter to finish with more cherries with their pits, light tang. Not bad. (3.6)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 375ml. Beautiful hazy peach colored. The aroma is surprisingly weak and neutral. Oxidized hop profile. Mediocre cherry components throughout. Lovely sticky chunky lace. Average carbonation. A tad too sweet for my liking. Slightly unpleasant metallic finish which is reminiscent of cinnamon. Dissapointing. Cracked open some other krieks to compare and this one was definitely not as complex and tasty.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very well-carbonated garnet beer with pink coloured, whipped eggwhite-like head, quite persistent. Brettanomyces, barnyard and sour cherries’ nose; old wet wood. Sour, tart kriekenflavour, with, in opposition to the Spontanframboos, the leathery & lemony background of Brett and lactic fermentation close to lambic-based fruitbeer. Rather light body with acidthinning and -burn; well-carbonated. Everything tastes as it should, and natural. Very good kriek, halfway between Zottegemse and kriekenlambic.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber red with candy-like pink head. Aroma has loads of standard kitchen-yeast, cherry, sourness and marcipan. Also perfume and some yeasty sweetness. Taste has less yeast and a lot of peel from sour fruits with some limey bitterness. Pepper and cherry dominate. Also some light red wine, oak and sugary sweetness.
