4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a bottle of 25cl at Bottle World of kuala lumpur. Pours a dark burgundy red color with a beautiful beige head. Aroma of dark dry fruits, wood and herbs. Flavors, wow, rich red dark fruits, wood, vanilla and a hint of spiciness. Rich sour, dry body with nice effervescence, but superbly balanced, nothing too much. So very enjoyable. Love this, one more please!

I’m surprised to find I haven’t rated this before. It’s certainly been too long since I’ve had this. While the strong aroma is no more or less appealing than I recall, the flavor and mouthful are superb and better than remembered.
Mild-moderate tartness with loads of sweet and sour fruits, including cherry and raspberry.
Lively and fairly high but soft and appealing carbonation. Excellent large and dense head.
Overall: a joy.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour: dark brown, high thick head, long lasting lumpy foam.
Smell: sour, dark cherry, fruity, sweet, vinegar.
Taste: sweet fruits, cherry and raisins, almost metallic, thick, deep and heavy in flavour, tartness.
Mouthfeel: Thick, heavy, creamy.
Verdict: Very nice beer, with interesting, full and intense flavour profile. But only in small quantities as it is rather filling and quite intense.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very good beer! Nice color, dark brown with hints of red. It smells of brown sugar mixed with vinegar, somewhat like an aceto balsamico. Taste is medium sour with sweet notes of candy sugar and caramel. Feels like a nice wine.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2016 #100 for the book "1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die." Aroma is woody, metallic, oak, some fruit I suppose but mostly disappointing. Appearance is red brown, had a light tan head before it fizzled away to nothing, clear and bubbly. Taste is medicinal cherry, wood, slight tart, bready for some reason, I?m unhappy. Mouthfeel is medium body, light fizzy carbonation, wood and medicine aftertaste. Overall, perhaps a bad bottle? I hope. This one is not good otherwise.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mørk rødbrun med fint off-white skum. Kompleks både på duft og smak. Duften er preget av balsamico, eik og røde bær. Det samme dominerer i smaken. Kirsebær er det dominerende bæret. Fin karbonisering og lang ettersmak.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2016 Azijn frisse kersen kriek zurig zurigheid. Donker van kleur en nauwelijks een schuimkraag. Een mooie balans tussen een Kriek en een zurig azinnig biertje. Heerlijk aangenaam.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2016 Bottle bought and consumed in May 2016 in a red wine glass.
AROMA: Balsamic vinegar. Red berries, some wood, I can kind of sense a very slight and low level dankness which comes through the alcohol evaporation. Nothing in terms of hops, more so vinegar and a fruity malt base.
APPEARANCE: Brown with a red hue. Large off white head. In a dark room would look totally dark brown however with additional light the hue ranges from ruby red to amber at the extremities of the glass, particularly towards the stem.
TASTE: Balsamic vinegar. Fresh water, very well hidden alcohol. Beautiful. One of the best features of this beer for me is actually the water which is very soft and pure.
PALATE: Sour but not overly so. Malt vinegar. Oaky tannins. Very refreshing. Long lasting gentle sourness offset by the wonderful watery base. The soft carbonation gently brings the wonderfully balanced maltyness to the forefront.
OVERALL: insanely well brewed and incredible tasting beer.
