Pours matte red with a small redish head. Nose of cherry and sour apple. Aroma and taste of the same. No depth, very sweet, not balanced, and the aroma is quite synthetic. Still enjoyable, although not so much for lovers of beer. This is glorified pop/soda.

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

Cobre e pouco creme. Aroma forte de cereja doce. Doce e ácida no sabor. Parece um frisante sem carbonatação.

330 ml bottle. Opaque pinkish red with pink head. Aroma of perfume, fruit soap, cherries and cherry candy. Taste is a bit murky, cherry notes, candy sweetener and soapy notes. Meh.

Gerbeer (1491) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
375 ml bottle. Pours a dark garnet read with light white head. Aromas of candied cherries. Flavors of weak sugary berry juice. Can’t catch the lambic. It’s a cooler not a beer. Or just a low ABV fruit juice.

Orange/ruby in color with tiny head. Aroma of sour cherries and malt. Nothing special, but not bad either. Just average. Sugary sweetness stays on the palate.

Zarkam (336) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 30, 2013
250ml bottle from a supermarket in Budapest, hazy pinkish red colour, no head or lacing whatsoever. Fruity cherry aroma with some hints of vanilla and citrus very light hops, taste is sweet initially with significant sourness that gets stronger towards the short finish with an acetic feel. Medium body, watery texture, virtually flat carbonation. Not a particularly unpleasant lambic, quite good if you’re into sour cherry, could be a bit more carbonated.
