2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
250ml bottle. Pours dark red with pinkish head. Lingering very light head. Aroma is heavily dominated by cherry. Taste is very sour and sweet. Pleasant aftertaste. Smells nice. Could have more complex aroma with some earthy tones. Now its little bit too artificial and sour for my taste.

Pours red color with a minimal head. Aroma of sugar, berries, juice and some yeast. Flavor of juice, mild fruits and sugar. Too sweet and juicy.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shard with McTapps. Bit artificial in the aroma with sweetish cherries. Taste is quite ok. Sweet cherries and some cheap beer in the background. Drinkable, but with a too artifical overload in taste and aroma.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Clear light ruby colour with low head and thin body. Nose of sour cherries. Taste of mild cherry stones, unripe cherries and fields. Very refreshing but just not that good.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle of 250 ml at home.One finger pinkish head, dark ruby colour, quite an activity in the glass in the form of bubbles rising to the top. The head quickly became a half finger thin line on the surface of the beer, so retention is quite good.
Aroma is of course of cherries but is a bit too strong, thus appearing artificial. I can smell something else too, but I cannot tell what exactly, the smell is not pleasant though.
Taste is slighty better, sweet as expected but leaves a slighty sour aftertaste. I think that afterall, the smell I was getting is from sour cherries, and you can trace them on the taste too.
On the body is thick above average for a fruit beer, with medium carbonation. Is nice to actually feel that youy don’t drink a cherry juice.

Aroma has sweetish cherry juice and sugary notes. Flavour has juicy cherries, fruit sugar and almost nothing else. Way too sweet stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A red beer with a nice pink/red head. The aroma is the sour aroma that must have a kriek. The flavor is sweet with notes of cherry, and a sour dry finish. A nice one.

Bottled, thanks to Eva who gives me a sample. Dark reddish colour with an off-white head, quickly dissapearing. Aroma is fresh, fruity, cherry notes. Flavor has cherry notes with a chemical sensation. Dry and bittery final.
