Bottle into tumbler, deep reddish hued brown color with foamy tan head. Aroma of candy cherries, liquorice and some red wine. Taste adds notes of caramel, tart sweet cherries, slight nuttiness and tannic oak. Light body, moderate carbonation, sour, sweet, dry with malty tart finish. Nice fruity sour, somewhat on the candy sweet side.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice brown red. Malty with a lot of cherries. At first some sour the mix but a bit too fruity after a while as the sugar and cherries dominate the finish too much.

Appearance - dark reddish brown. Finger head.
Aroma - sweet cherry with a hint of funk.
Mouth - medium carb. Semi dry.
Taste - mild sour flavor. Has a bit of a cherry syrup flavor. The cherry dominates. Not in my favorite way.
Overall - not my thing. A little funky cherry flavor. Not refreshing like other sours.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Nose has some must, slightest hint of sour and a full whack of Cherry Bakewell; I’m nervous this is going to be all syrup it smells grim. Taste is a mess; the cherry syrup dominates, with a far too sweet tone that over powers everything until the old bruin kicks in at the finish, but disjointedly. Unpleasant.

If you like sour this is it! Fruity stays with you throughout the taste. Definitely a select palate of sour.
