A really nice cherrybeer. Both sweet and sour, with an amazing aftertaste.

Poured from 750mL corked & caged bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: rich red hue with no haze and a strong effervescence. Head poured a thick finger of fizzy pink foam which dissipated rather quickly. While the head is nothing to speak of, I find the color simply amazing. Great.

Smell: quite tart with a rich malty character underneath. There's definitely a big fruitiness here; cherry and raspberry are to the fore. I'm a big fan!

Taste: richly sweet base with a little bit of toffee and caramel malt character. Tartness, cherry and raspberry build up from there. This is not an overly complex beer, but I love the flavors in it.

Mouthfeel: light body with a big carbonation and a big but evanescent creaminess. I still like it.

Overall: this is simply my kind of beer. It is no secret that I love krieks and cherry beers in general, and this is a damn tasty example of one. Many stars!

Nice clear red with a small head.

The smell starts off with a nice, natural cherry, mild oak in the background.

I like the sour cherry start. Oaky and creamy in the middle. Nice tart finish.

Nice, slightly unique version of the style. Would I drink again? Yup, and I'd probably buy one again being it didn't seem sweetened!
