0,75l from bottle at Night Shop, Brussels. Deep red color, small pink head. Smells grapes, tannins, marzipan, berry notes, spices. Very nice smell. Full body, soft carbonation. Tastes of berry notes, grapes, licorice, marzipan, spices. Finishes light dry and lightly sour with notes of licorice, grapes and spices. Lovely, the Licorice works really really well. Lovely

A very tasty kriek as well, but it does seem a bit more tame and less mature than the B225. The grape and weird wood do shine through nicely, and all the flavours are there.. just a bit odd for me, I'd prefer a cleaner kriek.
