3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2005 A Mes rate:
Re rate following Croydon Belgian Festival. I must have had a bad bottle of this as my second attempt was much much better than my first. Also since then I have really enjoyed it every time. Very very similar to the Vichtenaar just with more fruit. Wonderful body, great finish. Maybe it has just grown on me...
(I better rate this one quick before it gets drained! Not too good to be honest. A strange chocolate hint to the aroma and the flavour. For me it doesnt really work that well. Goes down quick and easy though! Damn these 25cl bottles!)

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Musty and leather smell. Very cherry, light head. Opaque red. Sugar and vinegar acidic, not finishable, doesn’t work altogether, the taste the fizzy carbonation. Too dry too thin,

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle 25 cl) In my version only 5,8% ABV. A different, stronger, more dry and less sweet Kriek. More beer, less fruit. A refreshing and quenching fruit-beer based on Sour Ale rather than sweetened lambic. If you miss Rodenbach Alexander, this is a decent substitute. 220896

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sourly aroma, medium strong cherry note. Brillant red color.
Flavor is light sourly with remarkable cherry flavor, that isn’t dominant. End is astringent with light notes of bitter almonds. Nice, but a hint to sweet.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample courtesy of Pailhead. Pours dark ruby color with only ring of bubbles. Sour vinegar and tart cherry aroma and flavor. Leaves long aftertaste, but dry at the smae time if that makes any sense.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl bottle. Red color with a small pinkish head. Aroma is cherry all right with some brett detected also. Taste is more cherry soda than a Flemish Sour. Too many good beers in this category for this to be close to those.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours red with a thin white head. Aroma very apparent of cherries and maybe vanilla also. Nice, tart lambic flavor and cherry is not too sweet like some Krieks. Slight amount of the oak flavor, but once again not overdone like some oak-aged brews. Well carbonated and dry mouthfeel. Pretty nice!
