BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Bottle: Pours a lightly rosy mahogany color with light head and no lacing. The nose is toasty with sweet alcohol, light cherry and a rich sour cherry pop tart type note. The flavor is a bit sweet with a light thin body and a lingering tart note. A bit apple ciderish and vague, light vinegar and wood too. It’s not bad, but nothing is really talking to me like a good flemish sour ale would. Dedollewaitor (16055) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2006
Bottle 25cl at Carlsens "Skvatter", Odense: Dark ruby red with white head. Cherrie & malty feel. Some sourness - vinegar. Then sweetness. Little alcohol appears. OK pleasant finish. Very allround! Augustijn55 (82) - Izegem, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2006
Bottle, 25 cl,
Taste this more times this weekend. Dark red colour. Aroma cherries and malt. Not bad for a kriek with brown beer. Verhaeghe is good. Christian (13601) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2008 Dark ruby brown, with little head. Light cherry aroma with some vinegar. Tart, clean cherry flavour. Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 14, 2006
Totally good beer, the taste, the aroma, the look, the foam, the aftertaste, everything was good. Cannot complain.

Sour fruit aroma. Red strong in alcohol and fruity with a hint of whisky. Some dryness in the finish. frankenkitty (2012) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2006
Best Before 31-10-05 Pours a deep cranberry color with an amber glow. A fast, pinkish-gray head is quickly a thin skin and halo. Mouthwateringly tart and acidic aromas showcase Belgian yeast strains. Leather, cheese, tannins and of course a fruity dollop of cherries that does not overwhelm. Sharp, astringent sourness in the mouth reeks of cherry pie filling. This flavor lingers on a dry finish, rather like a mousse. Mild acidity is not upsetting."Flemish Sour" or "Fruit Beer"... who cares... it’s rather decadent and enjoyable.

11.2oz, Best before 15-02-07. Pours a clear brownish red with a one and a half finger fading light pink head. Aroma of oak, sour fruits (in addition to the cherries), barnyard funk, a little bit of dust and cobwebs. The taste reminds me of their other beer I tried and the beer couldn’t decide whether it wanted to be sweet or acidic--this one wants to be a little too sweet for me. The flavors are otherwise pretty much the same with the oak and funk up front. I got a little cardboard as well. Dry finish. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Not too bad.

A nice and not-too-sweet cherry beer with some background complexity and a primarily real fruit flavor. Good balance and a refreshing finish. I could drink a few of these with some soft cheese and dry sausage. Jerre (3306) - Waregem, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2006
Sparkling clear ruby body topped by a foamy small pink head. The aroma is sour cherries and light nuty malt. Sour cherry with a fakish cherry flavor, cherry syrup I guess. Very stringent finish.
