Wow. This one was a close rival of Cantillon Kriek, and proves that lambic style beers can definitely be made well, outside of the Senne valley.

I happened to stumble upon this one in Deland on a beer trip with my family. I come to love sours a lot and this one really blew me away. The aroma had a lot of sour cherries with a little bit of oak as well. The flavor was super tart and fruity. The fruit flavors were balanced really well and everyone I shared it with seemed to really enjoy it.

Bottle sample thanks to Arminjewell! Hazy amber colored pour, a little carbonation and a nice slightly sour cherry aroma. Flavor is nice tart cherry right away, tart funky lactic bit and finishes slightly sweet. Very good!

[3473-20101113] 750mL bottle. Sweet maple plastic yeast aroma has a hint of cherry. Hazy, dark brown red body with a quick foamy off-white head. Cherry sour yeast flavour has a lingering sour aftertaste. Medium-full body is quite sour. Nice cherry bits, pretty good.

(750 ml bottle at Eric’s black friday event). Pours hazy deep red with off-white. Head. Aroma of sour cherries. Taste is sour. Pretty full bodied with oily texture. Reminds me of concord grape in texture and sourness. Nice beer and very tart.

2010-11-13. Murky dark red body, small off-white head. 3+ Syrupy cherry aroma, bit cough syrup and candy like at times. Flavour is cherry dominant, and finishes sour with a brisk acidity just before the finish goes away. Bit of fruit pit character in the background. 7+ Smooth average palate, well carbonated. Decent but the cherry profile is not to my own tastes (I tend to be fussy about cherry) and it lacks the delicate sophistication of some of their other sour beers. Bottle from the brewery, Portland

Bottle. 2009 bottle. Pours into a tall tulip glass. Pours a slightly opaque reddish color with a big fluffy very fizzy head that settle rather well into a nice coaster. Nice cherry aroma with tart sou notes. The taste is rather more subdued than j thought given the nose. Slightly sweet up front with a subtle tart note mixed in with the cherry and a slight vanilla Oaky flavor. Light mouthfeel. Rather dry. Ends cleanly. Hmmm, not the best example but not terrible either.

Not at all what I expected and not even close to the Lindeman lambics which I thought it would mimic. Tasted like apples soaked in vinegar. Not recommended.
