UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 Better on second taste, going to hedge my score for now because I had one bottle with less cherry than expected and one that was quite solid.

Huge thanks to Travlr! Second time drinking this, first time rating. This is a class unto its own. Deep ruby red. So deeply red but also clear. Nuts. Aroma is a bit subdued but dusty. Med-full bodied and exploding with cherry flavor. Both ripe cherries but especially cherry preserves. Slight medicinal cherry flavor but doesn’t distract. This is an excellent beer.

Bottle shared at King Arthur, Rome. 2012. Some soapy bubbles on intense lighter red wine. Red body. Deeper funk cherry aroma. Dense, clear funky cherry juice. Cherry candy. Some spices, lots of black currant. Intense cherry. Astounding. Delicious and strong.

joeiznogood (17) - DENMARK - MAY 15, 2016
At home, 2014 bottle (37.5cl) Pour: Dark, intense red (lives up to the name!), next to no carbonation and thus no head at all. Smell: Sour cherry, candied cherry, sweet, jello Tastes - First: sweet, intense fruit; mids: dark, sour grape; after: tartness, lingering black cherry Verdict: Overall very pleasant taste! The sour grapes play well with the natural sourness of the lambic.

olsvammel (5742) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2016
Bottle at Örebro Ölcafé. Fruity and tart smell with berries and wood. Similar taste. Surprisingly clean taste. Relatively mild acid. Refreshing. Dry finish. A bit too mild but still nice.

Advocate_Ames (568) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Pours a dark red with a simple pinkish foam head. Aroma was of juicy black cherries and barnyard notes. Tasting was of no surprise, tart cherries. There was a pleasant sour and acidic flavor. Overall this drink was rather good besides the soft carbonation. I really enjoyed the tasty and semi dry finish.
