Excellent. Cherry that is well balanced at the end. Still fan of lambics with a the sour punch at the end, but the oaky/muted finish is growing on me with this one.This is smooth and soft with nice subtle flavors. Good for those who aren’t big beer drinkers.

[Tap] Draught at Hopleaf in Chicago. Pours a deep red color with a quickly receding head. Cherry pie, vanilla and lightly sour aroma. Sweet and syrupy cherry character. Tart/sour hints are pretty subtle. Lively carbonation. Pretty good.

@ Hyde Park Wine and Spirits / Cincinnati OH --- Hazy medium cherry brown color, thick rim head, swirls of lace. Taste is a beautiful cross between Kriek Lambic and a Brown Ale. Both sides have their moment, and move together to a very satisfying finish. Cherry is very present, but not overwhelming. Same for the malt. Good Stuff.

RumRunner101 (676) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 31, 2014
Light purple pour with red-ish head. Aroma is sour cherries, light vinegar and funk. Tart cherries, slightly acidic, light grain. Sour, touch of sweetness. Finish is tart cherries, a little acidic. Good.

wlajwl (3554) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Aroma is cherries and strong sourness. The flavor is cherries, fruit, medium sweetness, a background of malts and a sour/slightly dry finish.

JulienHuxley (2516) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle. Massive gusher. Almost clear deep red pour with disappearing pink head. Aroma is fruity, but not that much. Light cherry aroma, mild acetic notes, a bit citric as well. Taste is tart, fruity, light fruity sweetness, finishes quite dry. Palate is light with aggressive carbonation, dry. Ok.

vadie (520) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
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

Buongiorgio00 (581) - - JAN 24, 2014
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.

EddyBeer1 (760) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2014
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.
