Tap at Congregation. Cherry aroma. No head. Red body with attractive translucence. Taste is cherry and not too vinous (I dont like vinous) but a little. Thin body like wine with good carbonation like champagne.

Excellent balance between the base beer and fruit. Nice oak character, good acidity, not too dry or tannic.

katrinaez (1616) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2016
Precisely what it should be. Tart, but not overly sour. A bit of sugar considering the style, which fits with the cherries.Aroma is sour and a bite of vinegar on the nose. Color is a nice brown red. Mouth, tasty tart and sour with some light sugars. Tap

Vells (1674) - Rga, Latvija, LATVIA - DEC 13, 2016
Seems bit one dimensional cherry. Thou that cherry impact is quite lovely, I would like more depth to it. Some wood dry impact in background. Moderate tartness with light sweetness Decent, but bit boring

jsporrer (827) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Pours a clear cranberry color with a thin pinkish ring. Sour, tart fruity aroma. Fairly thin texture and light body. Crisp tart cherry flavor with a lightly dry finish. Not as good as the other Verhaeghe cherry flavored ales but still tasty and pretty enjoyable.

brnandersen (3514) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2016
25 cl bottle. Slightly hazy red-amber colour with a thin, off-white head. Fruity aroma with cherries, caramel malts, oak and wheat malts. Taste is lightly sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes slightly tart with cherries. Lovely Oud Bruin.

skmikeg (1822) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Pours reddish dark brown with a one finger off white head with good lacing. Aroma is of sour cherries,oak, vinager, funk, wet hay, over ripe sour fruits, sweet malts, and some citrus. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi sour, long, lingering finish. Overall, a pretty tasty kreik.

FinnIckler (185) - GERMANY - NOV 2, 2016
Bottle from saveure. Poors clear red with no head. Nose is oak, cherries. Heavy carbonation with cuts into the taste a little bit. Palate is cherries, but overshadowed by woody, oaky notes. Finish is short and woody. This is pretty good, but the carbonation is too heavy and overpowering for my taste.

Holmen1 (5208) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2016
0,25 flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, hjemme: vakker dyp rdfarge, som portvin. Opp gjennom det tette lyserde skummet stiger en herlig aroma av kirsebr, mandler/mandelessens, vanilje og kirsebrsyltety. Smaken er lekker og avrundet, kanskje litt i steste laget (men jeg hadde gjerne tatt en flaske til). Snopel!
