Deep red with a pinkish head. Strong cherry aroma with hints of vanilla and wood. Sharp cherry tartness, almost jam-like, with hints of nut and roasted barley. Acidic cherry aftertaste with a nutty spiciness.

Lele (370) - Padova, ITALY - NOV 8, 2015
Buon lambic fuit. Colore amarena, con schiuma abbondante e persistente. Al naso chiari sentori di marena, e un tocco del chiaro sentore lambic. In bocca si rivela leggermente acida e fresca, con evidentissimi sentori di amarena. L’impressione, però, è come se ci avessero messo dello sciroppo industriale di amarena, rendendo il gusto gradevole, ma un po’ artificioso, sograttutto quando la birra inizia a scaldarsi.

Rote Farbe rötlicher schwacher Schaum, Geruch fruchtig herb, Geschmack relativ nach Kirsch, leicht säuerlich Süßnote ok

DoctorHU (356) - UKRAINE - OCT 26, 2015
CAN 33 CL. In the aroma tones slightly rotten cherry, notes of vanilla and fruit vinegar. In the taste of sour cherry, perfume notes, cereal sweetness muted, barely perceptible woody bitterness. The sour aftertaste long and peaceful stretches (of course it is the same cherry), far in the background grain tone.

[ Bottle ][ 3oz ][ @tasting ][ $5 ][ Tulip ][ 08.7.15 ]
bright red, puffy white head drops quick. heavy sweet sugar nose, some jammy kriek but obviously boosted. Fizzy soda front palate, lightly sweet co2 Cherry mid before heavy sweetness finish, sticky despite high effervescence.

dnicolaescu (1685) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 19, 2015
CAN 33 CL. Almost clear pink-red, pink head. Cherry syrup in the nose, but not over the top, has some lambic spice and acid notes too. The taste is similar, moderate cherry sweetness, some weird soy/broth notes, and light spicy and bitter lambic notes. Sure, it’s a beginner’s sour beer, but is far from being just a cherry juice too. Surprisingly decent.

adamnowek (1575) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2015
Really strong aroma of cherries. Very nice. Taste is a bit bland; mildly sour but not much body. Looks beautiful.

Typische kriek/ lambiek. Doordringende kriekensmaak. De zuurigheid valt mee.

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2015
On tap in Bruges. Pours a dark red with reddish pink foam. Aroma and taste are cherries. Not too sour or too sweet, I quite like this one.
