25 cl bottle @ home. Pours reddish brown with a little sediment and an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is vinous with sour fruit and wood. Flavour is much like the aroma – with a tart and dry finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2006 Dark ruby-brown. Big and fruity, vinous nose. Extremely sweet with big cherry and apple candy notes. A little too syrupy on the palate. Some sourness tries to tame the sweetness, but there’s not nearly enough of it. Only a slight yeastiness contributes to the flavor profile. Only a hint of alcohol is noticeable. Bit of metallic and band-aid flavors. Very, very mild hop flavors. Overall, not complex enough and much too sweet for my buds. Finish is bland and uneventful.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2003 This poured a dark reddish brown with a small tan head. The first thing that hits me is the SOUR nose. It's almost vinegar in aroma. The taste is also very tart but there is a sweetness hidden in there. It seems to make itself more present during the finish. Defnite fruit the taste sour apple mixed with plums, maybe. Hard to describe really. It evens out as you drink it. I didn't notice the sour as much after getting halfway through the bottle. It seems to sweeten up a little and reveal a little more than just tartness. It's been said already, but this is definitely something different!

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2004 Brown/red in color with a sour, vinegary aroma. Fruity and sour. Very unusual, but not unpleasant. Short, flat, quick-to-dissipate brownish head. The first sip was the toughest, as my tongue and brain take in the shock of such a strange flavored beer. After several more sips, the taste became more understandable, and more flavors became apparent....cherries, tiny bits of chocolate malt. Enjoyable, if unusual. To quote MIchael Jackson "Some drinkers could never learn to enjoy....sour specialties....any more than they could acquire a taste for a smelly cheese...in [that] case, the loss would be theirs."

Nice looking red-brown beer. Taste far too sweet/fruity(cherry) to my opinion.
From dubbel moving towards kriek.
