1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
250ml bottle (normally I resent bottles this tiny, but in this case it may be a blessing). Pours a murky deep pink, with a small and quickly fading white head. The aroma is not good at all: cheap, sweet kirsch and overdone boiled vegetables. Very light sourness up front is soon overcome by noxiously over-sweet cherry and a vaguely medicinal flavour. The finish merely tastes like cheap kirsch. Tastes like the champagne in Soho bars, if you know what I mean. Definitely the worst lambic I have had. As a final point, who releases two different products with exactly the same name and label? I had to check the fine print of the ingredients list for sugar to determine that my bottle was in fact the sweetened version.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smells like ash and distant cherries. Aubergine color, murky, bit lazy sparkling, ring of lacing like bubbles and lonely islands of foam on top. Overly sweet, slightly sour, artificial feel, hard to think this would be made from cherries, medium long finish, left with sticky feeling. Nah...not nice, too sweet and artificial. Re-tasting: have to add to notes that ugly vegetable like notes are there also... but I would not make food from these vegetables.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Red colour, almost no foam. Low carbonation. Very sweet fruit beer. Aroma of cherry’s with a lot of sugar and artificial sweeteners. Cloying sweetness. A lot of limonades are better!

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle (250 ml). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Hazy reddish/ruby with a small ring of white foam and no lacing. Aroma is super vegetal with artificial cherries and sugar. Taste is a little better (still bad) with vegetal notes, light acidity and artificial cherries. Light/medium body. Low carbonation. Sirupy mouthfeel. Not as bad as Chapeau Banana, but with a couple of adjustments it could be a contender.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Hazy red pour with no head. Aroma of cherries, cherry juice, strange off vegetal aroma, white beans. Taste is sweet, cherries, again this nagging vegetal flavor. Pretty nasty. Palate is sweet and almost flat. Blehhh.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
250ml Bottle. Pours flat as a pancake with no head and no lacing. Its aroma is cherry , sweet and a surprising amount of nuttiness - possibly almonds. Its taste is flat too - theres obviously cherry there and it has the sweet tart labic ending. This is like a bottle of home brew labic gone horribly wrong. Poor
