auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - NOV 22, 2012
375cl bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale reddish color with a small off-white head. Fruity, cherry aroma with a nice fruity, sour, tart cherry finish. I enjoyed this.

thirstyrabbit (1413) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 2, 2015
375 ml bottle, 5 months old. Pours a beautiful ruby red body with a medium tall pink head. Aroma has faint notes of cherry and then some dry notes of lambic. Taste is mostly tart (pretty high level) with some sour cherries and cherry stones. Finish allows some sweeter parts of cherries to emerge but only for a moment - the high tartness is quick to override them. Pretty crisp and refreshing but not quite as complex as I was hoping for. Perhaps an aged bottle would taste different.

yourilevesque (312) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 1, 2015
En fût au Moeder Lambic. Je déguste en ce moment LA bière qu’il faut boire par un 35 degrés à l’ombre à 19h. Bière rouge Bourgogne et mousse rosée et persistante, nez délicat de cerises griottes, c’est l’été dans mon verre! En bouche l’acidité est importante mais la bière, combien facile à boire dû à cette cerise rafraîchissante. Aucune mais aucune saveur artificielle, on est que dans la fraîcheur estivale, la jeune cerise surette, une pomme verte, une amertume de noyau de cerise et de citron. Grandement rafraîchissante!

mrjez (39) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUN 21, 2015
L: pours a gorgeous ruby dark pink, big fizzy champagne head that vanishes, carbonation continues to surface. S: sour cherries, oak, grape and dark fruits in the background, a little funky. T: tartness, similar to the nose, delicious. F: puckering at the start, sensational balance, perfectly effervescent. Insanely drinkable. O: not usually my style but I can’t ignore how delicious and wonderfully crafted this beer is.

mateuszk (552) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Draught. Clear, ruby-pink with pink head. In aroma lots of sour cherries, berries, there is of course funkiness, almond and some oak. Really great aroma. In taste medium sweet at first then sour cherries hits. The beer is packed with cherries! Low body, high carbonation, medium to high sour (but not vinegar style), dry. Very drinkable, refreshing. One of the best!
