Flaska från SB. Hallon i fin kombination med körsbären, minst lika mycket körsbärssmak som hallon trots att de bara är 5%. Ganska rund och mjuk syra och komplex smakbild med fat som ger en liten vaniljton, funk, körsbärskärnor. Riktigt gott.

2013 750mL bottle drunk 11/5/16.
Large, pink-flecked head showing modest retention for style tops a clear, cranberry body.
Big fruits in the nose, even after three years...Raspberry and cherry, of course, with the punchy, jammy character of young raspberry having disappeared. Funky, of course, though no big barnyard and no sulfur. Lots of fruity brett acids, black pepper and light lactic acid somewhat drying out and certainly balancing the fruit. None (or very little) of the strong band aid and no eather of older oude kriek vintages. So that’s kind of a bummer. But it’s still authentic and highly enjoyable with glorious fruit aromas persisting strongly.
Lots of fruit in the mouth with tight carbonation, moderate lactic acid and black pepper character helping to balance the sweet cherry notes. Soft, malty texture with tight carbonation and a bright raspberry and brett finish. I’m not going to lie, I want a LOT more funk than this but it’s still very well-done.

2013 version. Bottle big thanks to Scopey for this one. Aroma is big jammy cherry, cough syrup, raspberry, blackberry. A hazed plum red cherry coloured pour with a lasting loose pink head. Flavour is composed of semi sweet sour, putting, spicy berry fruits, woody raspberry, cough syrup,. Palate is medium sticky, sweet and sour, highish carbonation, puckering sour. Really nice complexity.

Aroma of raspberry, red currants, cherry, almond, oak, vanilla. Amazing how clear the 5% cherries are. Taste of cherry, raspberry, red fruits, light lambic funk, bright lemon, citrus.
