look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Bottle: a standard 330mL brown bottle with an old-school Belgian label.

Appearance: pours out a vibrant ruby red / amber-brown with a light could. A half-finger off-white head with a pink tinge. The head leaves no lace as it quickly drops to a decent cap.

Aroma: smells of an artificial cherry - kind of like kids' medicine. Not nice at all.

Taste: better than the aroma for sure, as the nasty cherry has been accompanied by some tart berries and some bitterness in the back.

Aftertaste: and the cherry is back. Pretty nasty.

Mouth feel: moderate in feel with a spritzy carbonation that carries the flavours through fantastically. Very refreshing body. Shame about the flavours.

Overall: as with Brouwerij Huyghe's Floris Kriek, I found this to be completely dominated by a nasty and sickly medicinal cherry flavour. A real shame, as I loved their peach lambicus.

A: Hazy and ruby red coloured with a finger’s worth of head that forms a ring.

S: Maraschino cherries, balsamic, yeast, and cloves. Huge cherry aroma that comes across naturally with a nice balsamic vinegar kick.

T: Cherries, field berries, apples, and a subtle balsamic quality. This is very easy drinking and smooth with not an overly sweet cherry flavour at all. This does seem to be lacking a flavour or two.

M: Thinner bodied with a lower carbonation, but almost too thin and flat for the style. Crisp and dry.

D: This is good and a very natural tasting example of the style but lacks in mouthfeel and doesn't seem to be 100% complete in the taste.

It's not a beer actually. A pretty sour and very sweet. Its better to drink it at room temperature or a little lower, you will feel nothing if it is over chilled.
Colour is very nice, dark red.
Smell and taste like a beer with cherry jam.
Wife like it. Girly stuff..

It certainly do not taste like a regular beer, but there are others beers that doesn’t do that as well. A very nice red color appears as you pour the beer into the glass.

The beer tastes well and is refreshing. But it’s more like soda, juice or cider than a beer.

Very sweet and sugary in the taste.
