3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
08.03.05 330ml bottle, dated 10.31.05 Red body looks like a glass of cranberry juice. Pink head but not much of it. Vinegar and cherries on the nose. Socks. Oak. Cig ash(?). Very sweet and mild, fruit forward. Decent, dry, sweet, tingly. Still seems young, like more time in the wood might be beneficial. Enjoyable in all of the ways I dig on flemmish sours.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BB 10/31/2005... Poured a clear, ruby red color with a thin, off white head that left no lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet cherries, grapes, port wine, and light oak. Taste of medicinal, sweet cherries, faint oak, and a lingering tartness. The first sip was a shocker, but I got used to this.

Sour cherry aroma. A very sour taste, this is almost wine in which they’ve added some cherry’s.(Bottle 25cl)

Cask Canterbury beer festival. 2 draught foreign beers were on at any one time during most of the festival. This had a whiff of cherry, a bit like the Liefmans. Good sourness but the cherries don’t over power it. Good kriek beer with good balance. Maybe could do with a touch more malt

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a beautiful red with a slowly diminishing pink head, no less!
Aroma is a little weak but nice. Vinegar, cherries (of course), light wood-smoke and sweaty yeast.
Taste is mild but nice. Slightly sour, somewhat sweet. Mouth puckering a little. Aftertaste fades quickly from lightly sour, tiny bit bitter.
Overall it’s nice, but of Verhaeghe, I like Vichtenaar a little better.

Smelled really good, like fresh black cherries. Strong tart cherry flavor, almost a sour candy quality. Sampled with some dark chocolate and it really perked up. Great with food, but not so great on it’s own.
