Bottle 0.75l from Marlou Zonhoven. Pours a clear deep red with no foam. Aroma is some sour cherries. Nothing else. Taste is tart, sour, full of cherries. A slight sweetness in the end makes this very well balanced. Refreshing, tasty, really good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. A hazy deep red beer, with a large, fizzy, mostly dininishing pink head. The aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately yeasty (barnyard, horse), with notes of cherry, raspberry, some spices. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, slightly acetic. Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, rather long finish with light to moderate bitterness. Fantastic sour ale, not properly acidic like a real Lambi, but not so far. Also wondefrul taste of cherries, juicy cherries. Wonderful color as well. Another great beer from De Ranke.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful looking - dark cherry with soft pink head. Aroma is sour tang. Taste began as a bland tart but then worked into a deeper citric sour with light cherry. Dry finish. Overall, not a sour ale I would return to, but a drinkable one nonetheless.
