BrewGoblin (463) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 3, 2014
King crimson with a big pinkish-white head. Soft carbonation on this one and a wee syrupy. Big tart cherry pie smell and taste, some lemon, brandy liqueur and light wheat. Quite sweet with mild bitterness, a good accompaniment to dessert but not a everyday drinker.

erickok (3793) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 25, 2014
Cherry jam, light sourness actually to make it more refreshing than expected. Not artifical unfortunately, a shame because the base isn’t so bad at all. Drinks allright, nice change of pace although I wouldn’t drink multiple on an evening. (25cl bottle at Darren’s place)

Équivalent de La Bécasse Kriek. Bue en bouteille. Déjà que je n'aime pas trop les kriek, celle-ci est particulièrement mauvaise...

JulienHuxley (3460) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle from Jumbo. Crystal clear dark red pour with thick pinkish white foam. Aroma of cherries, really intense and fruity, cherry jam, not at all spicy or vegetal, just bright cherry fruit with a light lemony tartness. Taste is sweet, all cherry juice, a bit syrupy actually, it gets a bit cloying. Not acidic at all (at least not more than regular fruit juice is), I get a light beery flavor towards the finish which came as a bit of a surprise. Palate is sweet, well carbed, medium bodied. Pretty fckin far from a fruit lambic, but not half as bad as I expected.

The beer is a cherry red colour with a fluffy pink head, the colours do make it a bit hard to take this beer seriously! The aroma was not what I was expecting from something that is classified under Fruit Lambic on Ratebeer, there was lots of sweet cherry, a bit of caramel, fake cherry candy, a hint of sourness and a whiff of corn? The first sip was all sweetness, lots of sugar with a very artificial cherry candy flavour. The body is quite thin with lots of carbonation to the point of being unable to hold a sip in your mouth as it bubbles up fairly violently. As I progressed through the glass a sourness finally begun to build up in my mouth but it wasn’t anywhere near enough to counter the sweetness.

Muggus69 (1270) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2014
OLD NOTES OCT 20, 2003 A sour cherry, almost grapey smell in the bottle, similar to a wine, again. Upon pouring into a glass it formed a thin foamy kind of head with a beautiful red body. This can’t be a beer! The flavour is quite a light but quite tart and sweet cherry flavour, with subtle hints of what I seems like grapes and strawberries. This beer reminds me of a red wine i’ve tried, just much lighter on the palate. Reminds me too much of a wine to take too seriously.
