Bottle. The pour was a murky dark cranberry red with a very small (almost non-existent) light pink fizzy head that was fully diminishing in just a few seconds and had no lacing to speak of.
The aroma was all about the cherries with a mild caramel malt and a sweet yeast and had a hint of candi-sugar and a slight sour odor.
The taste was abundantly sweet and a tad acidic with a very big cherry presence throughout, with the finish having a hint of candi-sugar and a nice mellow tartness towards the end. The flavor hung on for a decent duration with the sweet-tart cherry taste fading ever so slowly.
Mouthfeel was just a tiny bit beyond light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a soft mellow carbonation.
Overall a nice fruity tart Lambic that was extremely drinkable, reminds me a little of a Sour Cherry Jolly Rancher...

Ruby beer, pink head, the head disappears very quick unfortunately. Aroma of cherries. Taste is a nice balance of cherries and the sourness of a lambic. Lovely!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Garrafa da safra de 2010.
Aroma doce e um pouco amendoado, fresco. A cereja aparece no fundo. Bastante suave.
Creme breve e púrpura. Bastante inusual, ainda mais para mim que jamais havia tomado este tipo de cerveja.
Líquido turvo cor de vinho tinto.
Doce, carbonatado e frutado. É um pouco "travada" no final, talvez avinagrada. Mas isso teoricamente é esperado.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: The smell has nuts and some cherries in it, but also vinegar and horse blanket. Rather modest.
Appearance: The beer is orangy brown and hazy, has a small pinkish head, no lacing and little curtains
Taste: The taste is fruity and dextrose sweet, but not very sweet, red berries, green tea, a light acidity and mild note of chrushed cherry seeds.
Palate: Very little carbonation, soft and fresh, a medium to light body, very little dryness.
Overall: This one had aged beautifully (9 YO), round and well balanced.
Note: Bottle 330 ml (Vintage 2003) Reviewed 2012-01-21.

Pachnie jak delikatne wino, w smaku wiśniowe, nieco gorzkawe prawdopodobnie od pestek. Mocno gazowane, orzeźwiające, ładnie i przyjemnie wiśniowe.

Bottle, 37.5cl. Pours a cassis color, subtle foam head. Very nice aromas of sour cherries, gentle sweetness. Taste equals the aromas: short sweetness from the cherries, large sour middle (beautifully executed), cherry sweet aftertaste. Good kriek (considering I am not a fan of sweet beers).
