    Appearancewww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
    The beer has a reddish-brown color, and is very hazy (the beer is unfiltered and bottle-conditioned). The beer formed a couple centimeter thick pinkish head that quickly collapsed (leaving some lacing along the glass).
    Smellwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
    The beer has malty, slight acidic and fruity (cherry) aroma. The cherry aroma isn't as pronounced as in Krieks. (Note: I currently have a cold, so my olfaction isn't at its best)
    Tastewww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
    The beer initially has a quite sweet taste with an acidic bite, with a very slight aftertaste of cherries. The flavour is quite bland, and it is very difficult to chart the different taste components. The cherry flavour could definitely be more present, and the acidity could be slightly lowered or balanced with some more sweetness.

    The body is quite light, with moderate-high carbonation. Together with the acidity it isn't easy to drink.

    I'm not a great fan of fruit beers, but this beer did definitely not reach the level of Krieks. The flavour is lacking and not pronounced, and the beer was quite expensive. Would not buy again.

    Thanks to Pia for buying me this one! <3
