2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Cafe de Bontekoe, Leiden, Thursday 4th October 2012 Pours blood red with a girly pink head. Sweet, sickly cherry nose, which is replicated in the mouth. Much too sweet but to be fair there is a sour tang underneath the sweetness. It is certainly cherry flavoured but more cherry syrup than sour cherry. Despite this it is a beer that still has some redeeming features, and I still like the look. A6 A5 T5 P3 Ov10 2.9

Aroma of cherry is not too unnatural. Intense red glow. Bought the beer because of the lambic listed on ingredients. Couldn’t smell or taste it.

Obviously, this one will be connected to cherry. Aroma is not bad, you don’t feel like you are going to drink chemicals in a glass. Taste is also enjoyable, well if you like sugar. But other than cherry and sugar, there is nothing else. Supposedly it should be a Kriek with Lambic, and I didn’t found the later one in the taste.

Bottle atr home. Clear dark red with short lasting nice pink head. Looks inviting.... Oh yeah here we go with the super sweet cherry soda/candy/jam. There’s also light malts and dough, light pasta and wood, and some weird almost onion-like aftertaste. Taste is sweet with light tartness. Medium bodied. Close to stuff like Belle-Vue.

op bij de bonte koe. hier staat als omschrijving. "echte kriek, dus geen limonade" ofzo. Heb je dit dan wel gedronken. Dit heeft niets met kriek te maken, ontzettend zoet. BAH
