3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at R&H. Cloudy red amber with no head. Aroma is sour feet, though light and not pungent, rye bready. Taste is light sour, hints of farmhouse, horsey, beautifully light on tongue. Very easy to drink but still substantial body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours red-brown with a beige head. The aroma has a cherry like sweetness and some acidic/sour notes. The flavor has a nice balance or sweetness and tartness with cherry notes. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of an extra from markwise. Thanks, Mark! A rarity! Pours a murky rusty red, glowing deep red in between, a small offwhite reddish head that dies to a film that clings to the edges, light lacing. Aromas are a mesh of sweet cherry juice, sour cherries, a touch of vinegar, vanilla, caramel. Lively fruity cherry juice, sweeter. Touch of cherry lozenge/cough syrup appeal. Initial is medium bodied, mesh of cherry juice, sweet cherries, tart cherries, caramel, toffee is gentler, as the cherries really dominate this brew. A touch of vinegar, vanilla, faint medicinal cherry quality, but it doesn’t really work it’s way to the focus. More background noise, a tasty brew that is more sweet slanted, but still has a nice tart quality. A touch of cough drop, but the real cherry juice and tart cherries make a focus, interesting contrast. Finish is lingering sweet and tart cherries. Not bad. A welcome surprise.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Red in color. Heavy cherry nose. Almost like drinking a cherry soda. Tasty, but not terrific. Rated 3/27/10
