Top-fermented cherry beer based on Boerke Bruin, with genuine Schaarbeek griottes, the all but gone variety with which lambic-based krieks were once made, a rarity nowadays. This beer has a ’dirty’ pinkish head and deep wine-red colour, cloudy, lots of real sour cherries and some cherry stone in the nose along with malty, yeasty and citrussy accents, soft but big fruitiness of obvious real fruit with sourish freshness, mellow malt base and bitterish hops in the finish. One of those old-school Belgian fruit ales, honest, not overtly sweet and for once NOT based on witbier. KyotoLefty (10531) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle at Fiere Margriet. Dark cherry brown with a fine, low head. Nose of sweet black cherries, some cream, caramel. Sweet and rich, lots of cherry. Creamy, vanilla, interesting. Very rich and thick.

Cloudy tangerine - amber beer. Decent pinkish head which is quite noisy! Sounds like a bowl of Rice Krispies! Minerally nose with a touch of fruit. Crisp palate, fairly dry. Lightly tart with a nice touch of sweet and sour cherry. Light malt to offset. Finishes crisp and dry. Hint of marzipan. Nicely balanced beer. Just the right side of being too sour.
Süßer Geruch. Ausgewogen prickelnder und milder Antrunk, ebenso ausgewogen ist der Mittelteil, der leicht sauer und um so würziger daherkommt, mild aber ansprechend. Mild-würziger Nachgeschmack, eine Mischung aus sauer und rauchig herrscht hier.

Brick-red pour with a lightly pinkish head. the nose is fruity and cherry-laded with an almost candyish sweetness. It’s fairly tart on the back although quite simple. There’s a little bit of light funk and light lactic acidity. Meh... it’s not very good.
