2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 25cl. Pours a beautiful red liquid with a huge and long lasting reddish head. Nice lacing and carbonation. The aroma is sour and vinious with notes of berries, nothing very intense. Flavour is very good: a little bittersweet, fruity and dry. The sweetness isn’t as strong as other fruit/lambic beers and that’s good, at least in my point of view. Must be very cold! A very nice fruit beer!

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pink bordeaux colour. Pink slowly disappearing head, average lacing. Strong berry aroma, smells oversweetened. The initial flavour is offcourse sweet, but not as sweet as expected, with very light sourness. Finish is too sweet.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Deep red colour with a very small pinkish head. A disgusting soap-like flavour. (Bottle 25cl 4.5 alcohol% in my version)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottled, 4.5% ABV) Clear, darkish red color with a small, fading head. Sweetish, lemonadey (blue)berry aroma. Sweetish, slightly bitter flavor of blueberries. No finish to speak of. Light to medium-bodied palate with high, lemonadey carbonation. Not really beer, but decent lemonade. The sweetness is of a quite natural kind.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle 25 cl) My version was 4,5% ABV. Pale red colour, pretty much like a traditional kriek actually. Tall, pretty, pinkisk and almost velvety head. Some underlying sweetness from the blueberries but not overwhelmingly so. On the contrary this is rather dry and never cloying as with some of the more pop-like fruit-beers. Based on pils, which is fairly unusual. 130795

Bottled, 25cl, alc 4.5 % (BB 09/2005)
Ruby red with creamy violet head, lace. Aroma of leather and blueberry. Artificial sugar and blueberry flavors. Dry, slightly bittersweet aftertaste. Artificial, just drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy reddish brown color; light pink head, big. Very nice aroma of blueberry. The flavor is simple but ok, with moderate sweetness and some fruitness, but the palate is biting bitter, not enjoyable finish.
