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.

Totally good beer, the taste, the aroma, the look, the foam, the aftertaste, everything was good. Cannot complain.

DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2006
Draught at the GBBF, Earl’s Court 02/08/2006 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.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - SEP 6, 2006
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.

3.5
HumbertHumbert (77) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2006
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.

4.3
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.
