On Tap at Sunset Grill in Allston MA, Aroma is of sweet cherries. Color is dark brown with thick white head and light carbonation. Thick on the tongue and very sweet. Kind of like a cherry syrup. It was yummy. Tasted with AirforceHops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
25 cl bottle at home: crisp dark cherry brown with a decent creamy tall tan head. Immediate notes of cherry syrup. Some dark crystal malt notes under the syrup. A tree-bark character floating around. Not quite wood. A faint lactic twang. The syrup is turning sickeningly sweet and artificial. In the mouth you are first hit with that syrup again. Definitely not a natural tasting sweetness. Cherry and a bit of muddled malt character come up under the sugar just before a decent lactic character rolls in. This however turns bad when the sweetness rolls back in. "Old coin" metallic character at end with some cold tea. A bit thick on the tongue. Perhaps a bit high on the CO2 as well. It drives something astringent into the back of your nose. I remember this as being much better last time I had in several years back. Hmm... has it changed or have I wised up?

Smells a bit fruity, vinegar like qualities, with a hint of malt backing. It is tart above all other features, sharp and sour all around. Sweet fruits play along, sour cherries and grapes. After a while the taste reminds me of a Red Bull. Very sweet, with wine like acidity. Really wish there was more of a malt balance so I don’t forget I am drinking a beer. Every once and a while I can enjoy one of these, but too sweet and tart to handle a lot of.

Odeur forte de vinaigre..Belle couleur mais pas de mousse. Goût fort acide, et goût de vinaigre bien prononcé. Bière originale.

The color is absolutely beautiful, the sour smell wonderful, the taste suprisingly soft and the finnish nicely tart. Up there with rodenbach when it comes to sweet and sour beer, the fruity notes are just beautiful. Why don’t they hype this at all? Goddamn classy bitch of a beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
25cl. bottle from a local beer retailer. It pours a clear deep dark red liquid with a small-medium beige spongy head that lasts nicely and leaves some lacing. The aroma (light at first) is mostly fruity (berries), with hints of wood, wine and some wheat. Some brown sugar can also be sensed. A good malty base. It tastes likewise but intenser, reminding a fruit lambic beer with its fruity and candy sugar notes. It is medium sweet and sour; nicely balanced. In the mouth it feels lively carbonated, lambic-style, with a medium body and a long dry and sour finish with an aftertaste of berries and wood, and a touch of bitterness. Nice and original presentation (making it quite clear it is an aged beer) for a very good brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bière brune aux reflets rougeâtres avec un petit collet beige. Arômes légèrement vinaigrées, de tomates vertes. Elle est à la fois sucrée et acidulée, il est possible de goûter des pommes vertes, des raisins, des prûnes et de petits fruits mûres. Plus elle se rapproche de la température pièce, plus des notes de cerises ressortent et elle perd un peu de son acidité.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Unusual dark red color, frothly tan head, no visible carbonation. Definite cherry aroma overpowers any other typical beer smells like malt or hops. Smells like a fruit punch or cranberry cocktail. A bubbly light palate. A definite Kriek beer packed with berry - like cherry . Just like the aroma, the fruit dominates all other things one expects from a beer. No hearty malt, no dry hops. Perhaps good for those who dont enjoy beer - the former Zima crowd and new malt vodka types. Its tart and different, but if your looking for a traditional beer, stay away.
