First lambic beer at a small bar in Bruges. Bottle. Poured ruby red. Strong cherry odour. Somewhat sweet. Fell in love with this beer style after this first bottle, relected in rating.

Maakun (979) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle. Clear red with medium sized light pink/orange head. Cherry soda, light tart berries, dough, lemon rind, twigs. Not so nice vegetal/chemical bitter finish. Quite sweet with tart touch. Medium bodied. Artificial tasting, but less sweet than I remember it to be. Nice alcoholic alternative for a soda.

Arek (380) - Zielona Gra, POLAND - FEB 4, 2015
15.05.14:Bottle, Rouge, Brussels Airport, Belgium.
Czerwone piwo o puszystej i sztywnej ale niezbyt obfitej pianie oraz świeżym wiśniowym aromacie. W smaku słodkie, wiśniowe, lekko kwaskowe, orzeźwiające. Przypomina trochę musujące wino owocowe.

thirstyrabbit (1254) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle (BB 09.08.15). Ruby red body, medium pinkish head. Aroma has sweet cherries. Taste initially has sweet cherries but later turns salty like seawater or wallpaper glue. What the hell? Some moments later the cherry fruitiness emerges again to mix with the saltiness and this creates a sensation of blood in my mouth. Awful. I dont object to sweetened fruit lambics (in fact, I just gave a 3.0 to Mort Subite Kriek) but this is just gross. Drainpour.

0.25L bottle. Vanilla caramel candy aroma. Sour cranberry, raisin, green tea, raspberry flavor. Fruit caramel candy and overcooked cherry sugar aftertaste.

GlassBrass440 (147) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 17, 2015
Aroma and flavor a bit like cough syrup. That it is dryer than real cough syrup saves it somewhat but it could use some complexity.
