3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… C&P’sLYFO Throwdown… Muddy orange ale with a red tint and a small, creamy, white head. Big time acidity and cherry fruitiness in the aroma. Medium-bodied with hardly any carbonation. Juicy, sweet, fruity flavor and finish. A smidge acidic, but not enough to keep the sugar at bay. Bottle provided by GodOfThunder! * * Video = http://homepage.mac.com/maltajo/RATEBEER/iMovieThe

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This left a little to be desired. Fruity and a little sour, but nowhere near what I was expecting. A little funk in there, but still lacking. Just too light.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy GodofThunder. Rosy, hazy color, thin broken off-white head. Slight raspberry-like aroma, no real funk present on the nose. Mild general sweetness on the taste, kind of an imitation cherry feel to it.

CPLYFO 09. Thanks to GodofThunder. Pour sa muddy beige with a violet hints and a fizzy soda like head- fades. Aroma is tart cherries, plastic phenols, bubblegum, cough syrup and pixie stix. Moderately sweet flavor of off phenolic plasticy sour tart cherries, woody, poak, vanilla, funk, papery, and artificial sugar with some burning wires. Light tart not quite sour finish- meh.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, at LCRBM 2008, ’s Hertogenbosch, Netherlands
Hazy, red body. Off-white, creamy head that disappears fastly. Complex and well balanced aroma of fruit, wood, lactic acid: great! Smooth, soft flavour: moderately sweet and a tiny little bit bitter (as part of some drieness). However sweet it is not too sweet. Well balanced and ok beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.75 l bottle at PBF. Red-amber color. Sweet perfumed and slightly yeasty aroma with red currant and raspberry. Sweet strawberry, raspberry and red currant flavor with hint of brett in the finish. Some alcohol sharpness. OK fruit beer but no lambic complexity at all.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled at PBF. Cloudy reddish amber, no head. Lightly yeasty cherry aroma. Sweetish and medium bodied. General fruitiness and just notes of cherry. The advertised lambiek is nowhere to be found. Instead it ends up too sweet, without much comlexity. Almost dull, which is very unlike De Molen.

Bottled 75cl (PBF, brewed 09092008).
Amber-cherry color, small white head, Rasberry, rasberry seed aroma. Quite sweetish, berry juice. Strawberry and rasberry flavor, not cherries. First not very tart like a lambic,but there is some tartness in the aftertaste. Foamy mouthfeel. Kind of dessert beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled, 0.75l) Opaque orange, small head. Light, sweetish (rasp)berry aroma. Sweet flavor of raspberry, strawberry, cherry. Almost medium body, sticks to the teeth, medium carbonation. A quite decent dessert brew already, but it’s interesting to see how it develops with ageing.
