In between a ‘kriek’ and a framboise, this sour fruit beer by Antidoot combines Gorsem cherries with red raspberries. Pale lilac-pinkish, quite dense but slowly opening head, misty deep dark cherry red robe with ruby glow. Aroma of ripe sour cherry and red raspberry galore – both very strong and very fleshy, red plum, vanillin from oak wood, lemon thyme, fresh raspberry bush leaves, old red wine. Tart but mouth-fillingly juicy onset deeply steeped in generous amounts of ‘cooked’ dark cherries and bursting ripe red raspberries, almost coulis-like but with that lactic and fruit-acidic sourness keeping things lively and fresh; side notes of red plums and purple gooseberries. Fruit-yoghurty and red fruit juice middle on a thinly bready core, lots of ‘dark forest fruit’ impressions lingering, cooked berries and cherry wine – utterly juicy, generous and almost ‘warming’ in its fruitiness, like the ideal fruit beer for an autumn day; very elegant, but so fruity that the ‘beery’ aspect remains perhaps a bit too much hidden.

Cloudy deep ruby red beer, small creamy light pink head, stable, non adhesive. Aroma: oooh, very nice, fruity, lots of cherries, sour cherries (krieken), raspberry jam. MF: lively carbon, medium body. Taste: a bit chemical, fruity, lots of cherries, pretty bitter, some cherry pits, raspberries. Aftertaste: slightly sweet, pretty bitter, super fruity, a little chemical, raspberries, cherries, cherry pits, some almonds.
Purple pink color that very much reminds me of the same color as cherry cough syrup as a kid. Flat head. Fresh raspberries meld perfect with sliced almonds, excellent fruit acidity. Bright with a touch of funk. Thicker mouthfeel, tart nice raspberry character, not overly tart or acidic. The focus is the fruit. Good depth. Very nice.
