djd07 (3480) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle as shown. Thanks to danny and deftim13. Pours a cloudy red and no head. Aroma is a strong cherry. Thin mouthfeel with nice light sour cherry and very strong tart finish. Easy to drink very impressive fruit lambic.

teddybeer (2216) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 24, 2014
Reddish color with a minimal off-white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma with notes of cherries with acidic sensation. Flavor is strong acidic, fruity notes dominating cherries and some citrus. Very acidic final with a good presence on the mouth. Very enjoyable.

sebletitje (6641) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2014
Cask @ DeCam Volkscafé. De couleur acajou profond trouble, col blanc/ léger. Arôme cerise fermenté, qcq tanins côté fruité noir qui ressort parfaitement pour mettre toute la complexité de la griotte en avant. On note ci et là un rétro nasal augurant le lambic avec une pointe aigrelette perçant légèrement. Palais fruité bien cerise sur note lambic. Boisé léger pointe résiduelle fruitée voire douce. Alternance et mariage parfait entre le côté suret et le fruité de la griotte. Le tout est léger avec un fruité qui est mis en avant d’une belle manière. Pourra sembler être trop douce pour certain mais pour moi, c’est juste idéal.

Alengrin (1258) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
The flat, unblended De Cam cherry lambic, so not the same as De Cam Oude Kriek; tasted from tap at De Cam itself but also from bottles available since 2005. Lilac foam, wafer-thin, disappearing immediately and only attainable by force. Dark purplish red wine colour, misty. Aroma richly drenched in fresh, genuine sour cherries, some hints of elderberry, blueberry, lemon, hay, sweat; sharp citric acid in the mouth, very lively, loads of real fruit, lambic becoming more and more prominent as the liquid moves towards the throat, lemony and woody, with a bitter tail. As refreshing and authentic from bottle as from tap.

Ferris (3887) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle - Sweet and tart cherry. Solid maroon with no head. Slight balsamic and cherry. Really well done, good balance between tart and sour.

olsvammel (3030) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle from Dranken Geers in Belgium. Fruity and funky smell. Sour taste, fruity and salty. De cam has a tartness that differs from other beers of the same type and that I’m not sure how to describe. Maybe this was a bit too funky.

Creekygoose (4) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2014 does not count
Bottle at home (2009 bottling). Aroma of sour cherry with a hint of mint and oak. Beautiful clear (at first), ruby-red colour. Dry, woody, wonderfully sour cherry flavours. This bottle is even better than the draught version that I had at De Cam in April. A fantastic cherry lambic!

GothGargoyle (1159) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2014
Awesomely huge gusher! Reddish pink with a light pink head. Aroma is cherry, sour fruit. Medium bodied, fruity and sour on the palate. Taste is cherry, sour cherry candy, funk. Yum
