Rouge brillant avec une mousse moyenne rose. L’arôme des cerises aigre, du levure sauvage, et un peu de cerise sucré. Carbonation moyenne, un peu cerise sucré au début, mais avec une finition sec de cerise aigre.

Drunk from 33cl bottle bought at Malting Pot, Brussels. Combination of a Flemish red beer and kriek giving a pleasant sweet sour taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Il dominio incondizionato delle ciliegie, dolci e con sfumature leggermente candite, intrecciato con l’acidità intensa e pervasiva, la fanno assomigliare a una kriek "meno pura". Mantiene però un corpo acido leggermente più acetico-vinoso che le da un carattere proprio. Molto buona.

Bien rouge, effervescence moyenne, mousse rose moyenne. Cerises bien présentes, pas trop sûre, malts se dévoilant légèrement par la suite, manque un peu de boisé et de longueur.

The beer was a pleasant surprise. The cherry body was fantastic and an instant reminder of my mom’s cherry pies. Only fault I could think of is that I only have one small bottle.

Red, with pink foam. Strong aroma of candy and caramel. Sour, caramel, candy. High in carbon

Fles bij Van Erp uit Groningen. Ruikt zuur en smaakt zuur. Iets te zuur naar mijn smaak. Veel carbonatie. Wel een mooie kleur.

Bursted out of the bottle, not a good thing and the fizziness stayed in the beer itself. But, apart from that it’s a very good sour ale, the cherry is there but not overwhelming like a real kriek. Dry finish, almost meaty. Very nice. Bottle from Van Erp Groningen.

Love this beer great balance between a flemish red and a kriek. Great entry beer for a newcomer to the sour world. Nice and mild acidity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
