hazy dark reddish colour, almost no residual foam, acidic aroma of cherries and vinegar, slightly acidic, medium-bodied, strong sourness, the finish is very long and dry, deeply sour with pleasant notes of cherry - this is a solid, very beautiful lambic.

Hay/barnyard with cherry stones and citrus. Red with a pink short head. So dry yet so balanced. Great sweet juicy cherry flavour with a tart finish. Full bodied, smooth. How is this not lambic? Its brilliant anyway.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2005 Original Rating (8-3-6-3-14=3.4): Cinammon and cherries in the mildly tart aroma. Reddish-brown with white head that diminishes to ring. Mild brett character. Lightly sour cherries with some sweet malt to balance and a restrained tart finish. Fairly subdued. Low carbonation and sticky in the mouth. Bottle enjoyed with beerbuzzmontreal, lubiere, MartinT and Rastacouere.
Rerate (8-3-7-3-15=3.6): Dusty cherries and shoe polish in the musty aroma. Opaque burgundy red wine coloured body with low white head that recedes to ring. Shoe polish, cherries, mint and cinnamon in the flavour. Medium-light body with fair carbonation. Bottle enjoyed with MartinT, Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere for Martin’s ’Bachelor Party’!
