3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
well this was interesting..........
Dark dark red, very thin pink head.
Aroma is of cherries, and vanilla.
Very soft lambic, not much tartness at all, its quite sweet, actually a little too sweet. Not what i was expecting, tastes very much of dark overripe cherries, and not sour at all. Would be very nice on a hot summer day.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. An aromatically fruity, almost lemony brew. Flavour is complex, bustling with fruitiness and not so acidic as one would believe, pretty "soft" and good to drink, even for those who are far from hardcore lambic drinkers. A great unblended 100% pure lambic.

Clear seethrough red with a fine dense head. Nose is filled with cherry, floral and preserved berries. Quit sweet an lack’s a bit acidity for my taste!

Bottle, 25 cl. Had this beer on one of the warmest summer days, a good drink to cool down. Clear red colour with a small pink head. Artificial sweet cherry aroma. Sweet fruity flavour with moderate lambic tones.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma has some of that wild funky Lambic yeast with a tart yet sweet cherry pie element. The appearance is cloudy red with plenty of carbonation. The flavor is sweet and tart with enough fruit taste to counter the sourness of the Lambic. The palate is thin and refreshing. This is one of those rare, drinkable Lambics (at least in my book) and it’s the best Boon that I’ve had.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Drank it several times from draught as well without bothering taking notes. Dark red coloured. Unclear. Dense reddish head. Marcipan, cherry, sugar and light spice in the nose. Flavour is fresh cherrieish. Quite sugary and some vague tart notes. Very easy to drink. Almost like a sodapop. (The draught version imo is a bit more tart). Medium bodied. Is sweetish in the end.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from BevMo. Pours a dark maroon color. Aroma is of cherries, both tart and sweet. Gently tart cherry flavors. Nothing too exciting here, enjoyable though. My bottle is 5%.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2007 375ml bottle. Clear cherry red body with a dense reddish head. Sweet cherry aroma. Flavor is more moderate sweet cherry with a pleasant balanced acid sourness. Quite nice, somewhere in-between the real stuff and the sweet, artificial juice stuff. Re-rated as 750ml bottle@Kristiansand lambic festival. I stick to my previous comments, with exception for the artificial stuff. I’m now convinced that this is 100% real stuff.
Old rating: 4-4-6-3-10

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2004 vintage from presario. Cloudy, deep red colour with medium carbonation. A bit of oaky red wine type aromas co-mingle with some strong sweet cherry notes. The cherry flavors taste a bit artificial, but there’s enough sour and earthy (again reminding me a bit of a mildly tannic red wine) components to keep things from getting too sweet or overly simplistic. There’s still not really enough lambic character coming through, but this stuff is drinkable enough to stay out of the "dessert beer" category. Average.
