Bought this one without realizing it wasn't the oude version. Oh well.

A: Pours a deep purplish-red with a nice light purple head.

S: Moderately sweet cherry flesh in the nose. Not much acidity. A hint of wheat and vinous oak tannins.

T: Taste brings pleasant cherry sweetness interrupted briefly by a very mild note of tartness. Some vanilla and a bit of oak are detected as well, and a bit of subtle muskiness.

M: Light-bodied with full, creamy carbonation.

O: Not disgustingly sweet, but pretty disappointing with the lack of acidity. Next time I'll make sure I'm getting Vieille.

Poured from a 375ml corked and caged bottle into a tall snifter. The beer has a beautiful color. Dark, deep ruby-red with a nice fluffy pink head. The nose is faint but interesting and has hints of cherries and cotton candy.

Very mild flavor, medium-firm mouthfeel, and light body. The flavor isn't highly sour and acidic, but at the same time you don't get strong fruit juice notes as with some (sweetened) krieks. Instead, you get a mellow slightly tart beverage with light cherry and wine-like flavors. Not very tannic. Finish is kind of bland.

This is not a bad beer, but it's not good either. There isn't a lot of flavor here for the price you pay. It's just kind of dead. I won't buy this again. For what this beer costs, there are better beers with far more flavor.
