On tap at the WOB. pours reddish brown with no head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Flavor is cherry cough syrup, becomes more tart as it warms but still tough to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Verfrissend in de mond, kersen, rode bessen, licht zuurtje richting einde, beetje champagne. Op een warme dag heerlijk contrast. Aroma is subtiel, wederom kersen en vruchten en wat geboend hout.

0.33L bottle. Clear deep red with a light tan head. Nice fruit aromas. Cherry, cough syrup. Sweet, fruity flavor up front, some raspberry, but then transitions to the hallmark sourness of this style. Finishes with some residual sugars, and mildly ascerbic bitterness to go along with the sour. Full visit with a thick mouthfeel, and average carbonation. Overall, dearly representative of the style, with some nice aromas, and sweet/sour profile. Doesn’t stand out as one of the best, though.

Bottle, partial, at Mr. Goodbar. Had a very vinegary smell and feel to it, but surprisingly sweet. Almost too sweet. Nice beer but a little one-dimensional.

caesar (5324) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2014
Bottled from Lekker Bier Joure, 17/01/15, large sample, served in a tulip glass. Almost clear dark brown color with a red glow, medium light brown head, leaving a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of huge marzipan, cherry, cherry pits. Slight tart, medium sweet. Soft carbonation, medium bodied. Like liquid marzipan. I was expecting a more sour beer actually, but sweet kriek/oud bruin is a guilty pleasure of mine and marzipan as well. So, I like it, but I understand not everybody likes what they’re getting.
