A Mes rate:
Cheap 75cl bottle thanks to Duff. Loving every minute of this. Every bit of what is in here shows through. Perfect puckery lambic sourness, plenty of tnag from the cherries and a lovely hoppy note especially in the nose. Slight alcohol showing through all round but it just makes it even better. Very moreish lychee finish. Maybe just lacking a little body but the palate is still excellent. Great beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 750 ml bottle, shared by brewfiend, pours a ruby brownish red brew with an off-white/pinkish head. Aroma of sour cherries and sparkling wine. Taste is highly carbonated, sour cherries, some cane sugar, and some citrus aftertaste. Finish is light, with a cherry character that sticks around.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2007 Bottle sampled with Beerded_one from State Line. Pours red with a pink head. Aroma of cherries, tartness, smells like a lambic, and wood. The flavor is sour, tart cherries, carbonated, wood flavor perhaps from the cork, resembles a lambic. Finishes dry, very smooth.

3.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
1pt, 9.4oz bottle poured in a flute. This beer pours cloudy pink with a creamy pink head. It looks spectacular! It has a very disappointing metallic odor though. I bought this thinking it was a lambic. It’s actually a sour ale with cherries. It’s very nice. It has a strong sour and cherry flavor, as would be expected. Excellent actually.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Pours a hazy red with a small pinkish head. Nose is sour and tart, musty fruitiness. Taste is just right of the kriek with a nice pucker factor. Very tasty.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 Bottle pours a very cloudy deep red witha huge thick light pink head and thick sheeting lacing. Nice classic fruit lambic musty aroma. Flavor is big time tart and dry but enough sour cherry flavor along with it. Big full sour cherry flavor. Long ingering dry acidic trailer that leaves your teeth squeeking. Would not have guessed 7% ABV. Thanks to Jake65 for sharing this with us tonight.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Murky flat red color with a pinkish head. The aroma is similar to a Flemish sour ale and wood barrels. Tart is the word on the taste leaving your mouth and tongue with the sensation of having had some lemon juice. Its addicting. Vinegar flavored fruit dominates. Dry, dry, dry. I really like this. Thanks jake65 for hooking us up with this one.

Deep intense red with a pink head. Very fresh cherry/vinous & light vinegar aroma and taste. Sprinkly - nice mouthfeel & body. Almost no sweetness - very fresh & sour. Nice!
