Bottle. Pours a deep almost clear pink with full pinkish head. Aromas are very complex with sour cherry, almond from the pips, oak and plenty of lactic sourness. Just a little funk. Taste is very sour and earthy. Both the cherries and pips do however show through. Very dry finnish. Great beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bottle shared by awiseman. Very pungent aroma with the subtlest hint of cherry. I’m almost in tears after just smelling it. Pours a cloudy ruby with lots of fluffy white head. Very sour on first sip. On second sip, the cherries become more apparent. I’m sure there’s more going on, but its hard to make out through the overpowering sourness. Very sharp on the tongue with lots of carbonation, and not too much of a lingering after taste. A very intense and enjoyable lambic.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark purple color with a pink head. Aroma is sharp and slightly leathery, with hints of hay and grass next to some distant cherries. Flavor is overwhelmingly sour and quite dry, in a good way. The cherries are well present in the flavor but not overpowering. Good balance. Quite lively carbonation. Decent long sour finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
2006 vintage: Pours murky dark red with a pinkish head, looks lovely. Limes and overripe cherries in the aroma, oak barrels, pretty strong notes of chlorine and bandaid. Surprisingly watery taste, not too different from their Geuze - pithy and completely dry with a medium to high tartness, flavours of plant leaves and citrus. It seems as if the cherry flavour decreased over time, since they really add an incredible amount of fruits to this. Light alcoholic burn in the throat. Underwhelming.
