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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 Clear, rosy hue and a pink, sudsy head. Tart and sweet cherry nose with some woody barnyard character. Strong cherry flavor with some fruit peel quality and a tart, puckering finish. Too sweet and lacking in depth. Like a cherry-laden horse that runs for the pink team.
