UPDATED: AUG 1, 2011 Bottle. The aroma (should say WOW) was overwhelming with the scent of cherries, but did have mild notes of a light bread malt and a nice sweet doughy yeast.
It tasted sweet and malty with a very strong note of cherries from the start to finish with a light sourness appearing at the end. The flavor lingered on the taste buds for a nice long while allowing full enjoyment of the fruity nectar.
Mouthfeel was medium in body and a little watery yet nice and creamy in texture with the carbonation being somewhere between medium to moderate.
Overall an extremely tasty Fruit Ale, although it is more like a Lambic than an ale. This is the perfect beer to enjoy at the end of the day with a nice creamy dessert.
Poured into a tulip glass, a tap soda foam levels quickly revealing a deep ruby color. With no visible bubbles, this rouge ale sits like blood solid in the glass. The scent is that of a good old school black cherry soda. A bold thirst quenching juiciness explodes on the taste buds, with a heavy liquor feel. Hints of Spanish brandy and fresh cherry pie. The finish is not as rich as the taste though; I feel this Belgian could’ve considerably benefited from barrel aging, so the
sugar content is contrasted by oakiness. An excellent Belgian, I’m surprised by the lukewarm ratings on this one. Cheers Castle VH! Fanni (30) - HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2017
I drunk better kriek than this. This so sour, but not the good way. I will not buy it anymore. Zilverenmaan (174) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2017
7-3-7-3-13. Nothing wrong with it: looks ok, smell and taste of sweet cherries natural, carbonation ok. Uncompromising sweet cherriebeer Towey1989 (2710) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2017
Bottle at Beerdock Leek. Pours a deep ruby colour with a thin pink head. Aroma of black cherry, kirsch, slight red fruits and subtle sourness. Taste of black cherry, kirsch, some syrup, slight dark malts, a hint of sourness and subtle oak/wood. Medium bodied and a sticky texture. A sweet, sticky cherry finish. Lovely and sweet, cherry liquor aroma. Taste is still cherry liquor but more woody and less sour, quite sticky. It’s nice but expecting more from how it began. dimeon (217) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUN 16, 2017

9. 5. 2017, Pivopis, Ljubljana. Bottled. Dominant sour cherry flavour overriding malt and hops ferociously. Not a bad thing though, but not balanced at all.

Krāsa brūnganīgi sarkana. Aromātā ķirši ar kaut ko līdzīgu vīnam vai vēl kaut kam. Arī garšā ķirši un tumsnējs vīna tonis. Patīkama un interesanta garša. Nepatīk nedaudz sintētiskās piegaršas, sintētiskā gāzīte. Garšīgs, bet nedaudz sintētisks.
