3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours almost clear nice burgundy purple with a nice pink-purple head, nicely lacing. over ripened raspberries, cherries, raspberry vinegar, sweet tarts*TM, grassy leafiness, brown sugar and plum juice concentrate sweetness, spices. average carbonation, light body; lightly tart - low acetic, sweet but not cloying spicy finish. not overly complex and sugar hinders tartness and drinkability but it is definitely more drinkable than many other sweetened fruit lambic. dessert companion - enjoyed with the missus!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Winking Lizard. The beer pours a dark reddish-brown color with a medium frothy off-white head that recedes quickly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherries, yeast and malt. Light-bodied with a mildly tart cherry character and notes of earthy yeast and sweet malt. The finish is fruity with a short mildly sour cherry aftertaste. Decent overall, but not worth the $10 for a 375mL.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice dark red with a nice small white head. Aroma of raspberry, vanilla, oak and barnyard funk. Flavor is actually quite sweet with flavors of raspberry, strawberry, some vanilla with a decently dry finish. Not geuze-dry though. Quite good, but not complex enough to reach for the winners.

One of the best fruit beer in Belgium. The taste is just perfect, I rather have this bacchus than a kriek.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml bottl, pours cherry red, clear, with a bubbly foamy small head. Aroma is big on raspberries, light malts, sour notes, light bodied, oily texture, sourness is light, would prefer more astringency. Carbonation is lively. Finish is dry and mild sour. Not bad for a supermarket sour red.
