2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Huge piggy-pink, fine head, leaving textbook rings over hazy ruby beer. Childrens’ cherrysweets nose. Syrupy, artificial, etc., etc. No lambic whatsoever in the smell. Sourish-sweet, indeed very fruity but partly artificial. Still, better than the nose promised. But even the tartness has something artificial: citric acid rather than lambic... Refreshing if served cold; sticky warming up. Oh well... if it weren’t for that stupid blurb I wouldn’t even mind it that much.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at the Brouwcafe, Schevenigen. Poured a clear red color with a frothy pink head. The aroma is yeast, raspberry. Rather like those boiled sweets you had as a kid. The flavour is strong sweet with a zesty raspberry fruit palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. It’s all about the fruit and a bit one dimensional. I can’t say I disliked this sweetie but I would not order a second either!
