4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
25cl bottle. Beautiful deep red/brown colur, no head at all. Red wine nose and apple. Weird! Some sour cherry . Sweet sour mouthfeel. Starts with sweet cherry but quickly followed by an attack of sourness. This beer really shouldn’t work, but it does. Mainly because of the sweet/sour intensity and the cherry fruit. Although in no way is this comparable to any kriek I have had. Candy sugar flavour provides some of the sweetness. Glad I bought a second bottle

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2006 Bier rouge: Clear browny read with little white head. The smell is sour and fruity (cherries) and at the same to time you can smell vinegar & oak. The carbonation is lively bubbly. The taste is pretty much like your first senses tells you. Good on a warm day in the sun!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2009 Bottled, 25cl. Clear, non-carbonating brown beer. Sour on the nose, with yeast, alcohol and cherries. The flavor is kind of caramelized cherries with green apples and sourness. It feels sparkling in the mouth, and of course quite astringent. The finish has some sweetness to balance the sourness. Rating: 7-4-7-4-14-3.8. (060513)
Bottle, 33cl. It pours a clear, ruby body with a beautiful carbonation giving a big, rocky, dense off-white to beige head. Superb lacings. Slightly vinegary on the nose, with red berries doing a good job. Mostly cherries. There’s a good dash of sweetness to give it something resembling balance, and some woody vanilla notes blend in. The alcohol is present, but very subdued, and there’s a good dash of dried fruits as well. Smooth and effervescent body, medium full. Maybe a bit too fizzy, at least I think I would like less co2. A touch of alcohol warmth too. Where the "fake" krieks has an unpleasant sugary sweetness, this one has a lovely sugary sweetness to balance the sourness and still not overpowering the cherries, cherry liqeur, balsamic vinegar, wood and notes of dried fruits. Tart, but in a balanced way. Sweet, but tart enough to avoid fur on the teeth. Lasting sour and sweet finish with red berries and balsamic vinegar. Damn, I had forgotten how good this one is.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2014 Bottle at KØ07. Nice woody and sour aroma. The flavour is nicely sour, yoghurty, with a little earth and wood. Quite sweet. Slightly cleansing. Very nice, although on the sweet side. 7 3 8 3 18
Bottle, 6.2%. Acetic and vinegary aroma - mouthwatering. Clear brown colour. Small stable light brown head. The flavour is sweet at first, but turns nicely acidic. Like my original rating, I must sayt it is a bit sweet. 8 3 7 3 16

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 25cl (BB 04/2006)
Dark red cherry color, brown small head, sour fruity aroma of vinegar. Flavor is sour cherries, raw grapefruits and dry apple cider. Light to medium bodied. Finish is sweet apples and fruits and lambic sourness with rubbery tones. First this had maybe too unique palate to enjoy but after few sips this turns to be interesting and complex.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2005 Well-named, as its burgundy colour would indicate. Mix of woody lactic notes, tomato, pomegranate, apple skins and acetic notes. Sweet maltiness in the palate, alongside icing sugar, caramel apples, and a light acetic note which spoils an otherwise clean lactic undertone. Sweet & sour, quite drinkable, but I do find the acetic notes to be rather off-putting. You have to love acetic acid (vinegar) to love this beer. If you don’t, it’ll go down the drain.
