Beautiful burgundy red colour with alost no foam at all. Nice balance between the sourness of a flemish red and a sweet fruitiness (cherry, strawberry ??). Almost tastes like a lambic beer, it is much fruitier than other flemish red I have drank so far. First time I drank this one, but I love it !!

Pours super dark red with a small head. Hints of tart black cherry and vinegar on the nose. Beautiful flavor of black cherries, nice tartness and clean finish. Very easy drinking and quite yummy. Carbonation makes it feel light on the palate. My second from Verhaeghe and have been impressed by both, but this one is better than the Kriek for me.
