look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Dark, ruby red, like wild cherries; no head at all

Aroma: Sour cherries and old wood

Taste: Tart, sour cherries; very dry throughout with oak barrel notes; very flat overall; not horrible, but not that great, either

Remarks: Bottled in 2006; bought in Strasbourg in 2011, so the sample may have been bad. I didn't like enough to look for another bottle.

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

Poured from the bottle into a Drie Fonteinen stemware glass. Good till Jan 2014, bottled Jan 27 2012.

A slow straight pour brings a light wet sounding body it seems, but a solid deep cherry dark red almost blood purple. It produces a one finger head deep pink reddish in color, which is slightly foamy but disappears quickly, but settles to a real nice whip cream merringue pink and white collar.

Nose is a mild cherry cough drop, without the medicinal factor. Lightly tart with mild hinting acidity. Very clean, with a penny candy like sense.

A good tart acid, with an almost creamy mouthfeel gives the mouth a nice sense of mellow sour cherry. Real good malt depth on this, with just enough density to stay from being too watery and wet. Very moderate carbonation but with a hint of tight fizz, nothing detracts from the palate.

Overall a nice mellow and perhaps not as flavorful hinting kriek compared to what is sensed on the nose, but very subtle and enjoyable.
