Couleur rougeâtre trouble, col beige.
Arôme est fruité griotte gardant ce bouquet fruité prenant rappelant le vieillissement en cave de par ce côté fermenté.
Palais donne bien le profil des griottes, fine note aigre mais restant facile à approcher. Point positif pour une bière qui ne tombe pas dans l’usage de faux sucre et autres édulcorants, ici le fruité est mis en avant. Le malt arrive en retrait pour consolider la base de fruit.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this 2008 bottle at the pre-BTBF tasting. Red pour with a white head. The aroma is full of slightly tart cherries and a bit of biscuit malt. The flavor follows suit with a lot of sweet, sugary cherry notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2013

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2013 75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBESG 2013. 2010 Vintage. Pours dark raspberry red with a pinkish head. Nose is very full of fruits, more cherry than kriek, light raspberry, almost cloying, very jam-like. Taste is blend of cherries & kriek, less tang than I am used of the kiek (the fruit), light hint of iron (maybe the age), touch thin but very easy to drink, oodles of fruit, somewhat fruit sweety with a jam impression, kriek pits in there, light berries in s pices in the finish. Fine carb. very easy to drink. Would have been superb with some sourness but as this stands this is pretty much what a fruit beer should be, fruits & not chemical nonsense. Great stuff. ///// Shared another 75 cl. bottle @ RBBSG II, total gusher & not bad but not as good as the firt time around, bit too metallic & thin, same vintage, keeping previous score for now
