Pink-plum pour, foamy pink head. Aroma is tart raspberry, with barnyard and sweet berry notes. Very tart and acidic, barnyardy. Intense, short-lived raspberry flavor. Not terribly exciting but well made.

375ml bottle from Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a deep pinkish red with thin head. Taste is marvellously indulgent and refreshing, fizzy with cherry laces, sour cherries and a subtle sweet sourness. Nice.

Bottle at Brasserie Cambrinus while in Bruges. Side by side with Rose de Cambrinus. Pours deep red color with a pink half finger head. Aroma of tart cherries, wheat malts, a bit of oak. Flavor follows with big cherry, though not overly sweet, with perfect tartness, and some vanilla coming through as well. Medium dry on the palate, light plus bodied, plenty of carbonation. My first time having this one and I think I light like it better then the LP Kriek. Awesome stuff!

Cloudy, nice ruby color with pinkish short head, great cherry and lambic aroma, complex, a good combination of sweet and sour (although a bit too sour for my taste)

DutchMark (156) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2014
Very good. Wonderful red colour and nice prickly carbonation. Well balanced and complex. Sweet, sour and bitter are all there and each have their moment of prominence. a good funky lambic flavor and of course the natural flavor of the cherries. Long dry finish.

Very clear ruby red with some pinkish foam that leaves light lacing. Aroma is musty, fruity and quite funky. A little cheesy. Extremely complex. Very dry palate with excellent balance of tart cherry and lambic flavors. I didn’t think that I liked fruit lambic until I had this one.

Really really really wonderful cherry tart aroma....a little to much in the flavor cuz the tartness looses some punch. just a little too sweet. but other than that very very good beer

Troebel rood bier zonder schuim. Smaak is zuur en droog, fruitig kersen. Iets te zuur om goed te smaken.

Got a couple bottles from Belgium in a box. 2013 drank in 2014. Cherry was good with the sour.
