Pours beautiful red with low pink head. Aroma is of sourness, fruits, cherries, very sligth barnyard. Taste is sour, cherries, sligth funk. Palate: Ligth-bodied. Overall: Pretty drinkable. Not too acidic nor sour. Good balance. I would have like to have a bit more of the lambic funk.

From 75cl bottle complete with US health warnings! Wonderful pink colour, with a white head, slightly tinged with pink. Sour cherry aroma, not strong. Tastes sour and fruity, there is no compromise towards sweet here. Lively on the tongue, with a lingering dry and bitter aftertaste. None of the almond flavours associated with some cherry beers here, just a moreish dryness. Cool on a warm afternoon? Oh, yes. Another winner from De Ranke.

This is an excellent beer. Pours a deep pink/ruby red color. Huge jammy fruit notes along with a lightness of touch and solid acid burst on the mouthfeel. All cherry and sour fruit.

Poured a pinkish red color with aromas of light wet wood, some tart cherries, light hay and some funk. Flavors followed suit, tart cherries, lambicy acidic aftertaste, a nice sour overall.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear deep ruby with a fat finger of frothy pink head diminishing to a thin skim and spotty lacing. Nose is sour cherry and barnyard funk against a sweet and tart background of lambic yeasts. Taste follows suit, fruity, sweet, and sour. Mouth feel is crisp, light, and lively, finishing off-dry with a lingering sourness.
This is a whole lot of fun. Pleasantly drinkable, with a lot of fruit and a clean, crisp, mouth-clearing sourness.

At dig bar a bottle for a customer’s birthday who kindly shared a sip. A lovely reddish pour with a mild head. The head is exceptionally thin and filmy. A nice sour cherry lambic taste. Medium bodied. Quite tasty.

Had a cherry sour? This one is probably better. True lambic profile sits underneath a heavy blanket of cherry. Delicious.

Beautiful pink color color. Taste is sour and sweet, almost like a lambic actually. After taste is a bit more like a non-lambic beer. Nice and refreshing beer, will certainly buy it again.
