3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12.7 oz bottle to taster. Looks good; a transparent cherry with light pink head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of cherries and mild funk. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid, but nothing special.

Bottle shared by madbeerbaron...thanks Ben! - Pours hazy red-pink with a thin ring of white head. Nose is skunky, with light cherry fruitiness. Muted cherry taste, not very tart, and a pale, malty base. Light and well-carbonated. Huh, this one didn’t do a whole lot for me.

375 ml bottle. Hazy reddish body with a big off-white head. Not very strong in aroma but distinct cherry with some funk. Flavor is fruity acidic, cherry, almond and some funk. Medium body and nice aftertaste. A nice kriek, but not exactly in the same league as the classics.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottle, 0.375 l - BBE 10/05/22, from Drink Shop, Tallinn, 20130929) A gusher. The beer poured ruby red and clear. Its head was medium sized and lightly red. Aroma had cherries, cherry stones, sourness and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were sourness, cherries, wood, sweetness and bitterness. Afteraste was had sourness and berries. Not a good attempt to do a lambic. It may be the bottle was a bit off.
