Delicious. It smells like cherry, slighty like wine, pours a beautiful dark ruby, tart without a bite to it, mildly sweet, not short on flavor, but easy to drink.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2010 Dark ruby red. Sweet cherry nose. Some wood and yeast. Other dark fruits apparent. Flavor is malty and loads of cherry sweetness. Bitter tart unripe cherries and lactic acid. Very sweet but does not linger. finishes dry. I’m a huge fan.

Deliciosa kriek maturada em barril, uma invasão de sabores e refrescância com muito sabor e aroma.

Une couleurs ruby hallucinante. Une mousse rosée. Des arômes de kitsch et d’amande qui doit venir du noyau. Des notes boisées. Des notes acidulées très fines. Une bière très surprenantes.

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

Splendida, la base mi pare sia la Vichtenaar, ma le ciliegie le danno un bouquet gentile ed elegante; da vedere, poi, è uno spettacolo.. in bocca una deliziosa sour ale con la ricchezza della frutta e la poca voglia di scrivere che ho. In verità vorrei dormire ancora un poco ma vediamo..se riesco bene, altrimenti amen mi rifarò stasera/domattina ! Domani si inizia il ripasso di Lett. Greca woooo non vedo l’ora di fare qualcosa di diverso dalla storia, così da staccare un pochino

hazy dark red, pink head, medium body, medium-high carbonation.

aroma: sour cherries, musty, and a bit of acidity.

taste: lots of musty sour cherries. some acetic acid, and a little alcohol.

very nice. mostly sour and musty, with just a touch of sweetness -how fruit beer should be (imo). sourness is as much acetic and winey as it is fruit tartness.

Tart palate, plus it has a very sweet finish. The aroma is pleasantly fruity. Nice and red in color. Makes me want more and more.

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.
