(Bottled, 2002 vintage, 4.5% abv.) Deep red, almost purple, unclear colour. Not much head. Cherry aroma with faint notes of cork. Somewhat sourish cherry flavour, but overall a bit too sweet.

Bottled. 2003 oogst. Sour cherry aroma with pretty evident gueze-like corky notes. Lightly to medium tart with a medium sweetness. Woody, corky flavours. Dries out on the tongue. Nice one. Not too much sweetness.

Nice musky cherry lambic. A simple rendition of the style and an accessible introduction to the world of sour beers. I like it as one of my favorite fruit beers.

Pours a hazy red with a pink foam head. Tart barnyard cherry aroma. Sweet and musky cherry flavor. A bit watery. Somewhat one dimensional, but still had a nice, real cherry flavor.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (cork exploded quite violently spilling almost half of bottle onto kitchen counter). Cherry-brown in colour with a lasting large pink coloured head. Aroma of sour cherries, candy and coins. The flavour was lacking the sourness of the aroma, mostly sugar coated cherries and a small tartness was all that was left. Medium-light body, violent carbonation. Finishes a bit on the sweet side with some lingering cherries.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dark crimson, light pink head. Light aroma of sour cherries, candy. Taste is somewhat of a letdown as it is quite mild for the style. Cherries are there, but hardly any sourness leaves this tasting more like cough syrup than it should. Medium bodied.
