3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, la cave a bulles, Paris. Pours dark pink, large dark pink off white head. Aroma dominated by sour yeast, dough, barnyard and cherries. The taste is slightly light, with some vinous notes, sourness, turns towards fruit and cherries. The finish is loaded with cherries and turns quite bitter from the red berries, it actually reminds me of the taste left in your mouth by dandelions leaves, maybe even a rubber tube. The palate is very light and refreshing, nice balanced body. This is of course a great beer.

Outstanding, highly sought after for a reason! Definitely worth searching for, although I still prefer the RdG and the F-F at this point. Would love to have another of these though.

Tasted ar RBBWG 2013 - thanks Tinus! 1992 bottle. Poured a Madeira color with a wisp of a head. Smell is rich ripened cherry, cinnamon and butterscotch. Taste is lactic, hint of the old fruit, sour and puckering - vinegar and very dry finish (in a good way). Medium body and a hint of carbonation. Overall a real treat and I really feel honored to have tried it!

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2013 12 oz. bottle- Pours ruby red to pink with a one finger pink head that slowly reduces to a collar. Aroma is tart and funky, cherries, in fact it smells like homemade cherry pie, the one that Grandma used to make, outstanding to say the least! The taste is very tart, funky, cherries, crust, in love with this beer!! Body is medium, carbonation is fairly high, but not for the style. Overall I loved this beer, one of a kind, cherry pie in a glass!

Cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Free sample! Apparently it’s all to do with the stones in the cherries, and this year’s are particularly fine. Bright pink in colour, pink head, really intense sour cherry, winey, yeasty, bitter. Awesome beer.
