2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cherry and vinegar on the nose, smells very sweet. Cherry color, fizzy head. Taste is the cherry upfront, quickly dissipating to a citric sourness and a dry finish. Very carbonated and medium body. Tastes a bit artificial and overly sweet to enjoy any large quantity of this one.

Sample @ Hamirubi’s place. Clear red beer, minimal white head. Sweet aroma, lots of cherries and raspberries. Taste is very sweet, but not as bad as I thought.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25cl bottle, served cool in tulip glass. Pours sparkling red with small diminishing off-white/pinkish creamy head. Medium creamy body, fizzy carbonation, average alcohol, dry sour finish. Aromas and tastes of sour cherries, hints of grapes, flowers, raspberry and green apple, sometimes resembling cider, apple vinegar or sour wine. Moderately acidic, if I may say. Good lacing. Last few sips leave a strange bitter aftertaste, reminding me of bitter almond seeds (can’t say I liked that). Obviously not the best of its kind, but then an overall o.k. choice for experimentation.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at my AirBnB. Deep red, big pinkish head with a cherry syrup sweet aroma. Sharply carbonated the taste is candyish sweet cherry juice. 4% it is not beer or real Kriek like but could be nice if it was a tad less sweet.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very average fruit lambic. Aroma was decent. Sour cherry and very vinuous. Pour was a hazy medium amber with a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was alright. Very watery and thin, but the flavor that is there is all sour cherry, wood and a hint of vinegar. Not on par with other sours but not terrible. Definitely not worth the 10.95 price tag. Mild carbonation.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Kapitein Zeppos in Amsterdam. Pours dark red with pink head, almost artificial look. Aroma of strong and sweet cherry. Carbonation above average, terrifyingly sweet taste, no hints of natural cherry. Quite disappointing. Short finish, just slightly sour. OK, but not great.
