4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of balsamic vinegar, with some over-ripe cherry notes. Appears a deep red mahogany-tinged color, with a big creamy tan head that lasts. Flavor is tart but not too sour, with some sweet over-ripe fruit in the middle, and ending with woody notes. Palate is moderate, slick, and effercescent. Overall, an excellent example. My thanks to SoLan for this tasty brew.

Bottle @ ’t Poatersgat. Pours slightly hazy dark ruby with small beige head. Vinous aroma with notes of yeast and hops. Vinous onset leading to sweetish notes of fruit and malt, ending quite dry and acidic, with notes of yeast. A good one.

Reminiscent of the Douchesse, but with a more oaky taste and with some extra sour fruit. Tasty beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle, pours a clear dark reddish brown with a thin off white head, aroma has a good kick of sour dark fruit with a little but of vanilla, the flavor has a lighter front than I was expecting and wasn’t nearly as sour, more sweet and malty, not yet terrible but nothing great

330cl bottle at home (Brazil) thanks to my wife. Having previously tried the Kriek version which I did not like due to a detection of artificial sweetner I was not expecting too much. Wow was I wrong. This is a hidden gem. Its a real old school flemish sour. Every bit as good as Rodenbach. I need to do a side by side tasting.
