Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike!
The beer appears a dark crimson color with minimal head and sparse lacing. The aroma is sweet, offering cherries, hints of nail polish. Just OK. The flavor is sweet, almost like a Shirley Temple, with a pronounced maraschino cherry taste. Light in body, and easy to swill. The sweetness renders this best in small quantities. Still, always fun to try a new beer, let alone one brewed by Rodenbach.

Doftar gammalt telt och metall. Lite söt metallisk bärsmak och et ganska stort källarpregl

Bottle at Kulminator, March 2012.
Reddish purple with a small pinkish head. Extremely drinkbable, almost like cherry juice but with some good sourness. Thin and sweet but I liked it anyway.

some Vintage bottle@Kulminator: deep red colour, smells like some kind of cherry cocktail mixed with some musty & sour cherries, taste is like cherry juice & cherry cocktail, some cherry candy, mixed with something you would get if you tried making a traditional kriek outside of Pajottenland (musty, rotting & sour cherries), some vinegar, overall a strange clash between two sides of this beer with the latter clearly having developed largely with aging, medium body & carbonation, slightly oily

transparent red amber, thin white ring for a head. Nose of cherry sweeness, light balsamic, bit lactic with hints of syrup. Really light lactic cherry nose, bit of bitter acetone in finish. Too light flavor, too off nose.

Home (33 cl bottle): A deep red colour with some brown-shine. Aroma is slight sweet with strong fruitness of cherry (sour). Als some wood/vanilla in the aroma. The taste starts sweet with a sour fruittaste of cherry. Also vanilla. The taste finish is slight sweet, sour with still a lot of fruitness. There is also some bitterness in the end (wood-like)

THE this beer losses points for me. Ten smackers!!! Little high for a low alcohol beer. But the flavor was nice and the finish was sweet.
