Bottled @ GBBF 2005: Red coloured. Unclear. Not much head. Sweetish cherry aroma with a light sour touch. Flavour is dry and fruity and has a fresh sourness thats very cleansing. Has a light sweet cherrysourness in the end thats perfectly balanced. Has a very high drinkability. One to search for.

Pours ruby red into a tumbler. Bright pink micro head does not recede. Cherry and cheese aromas. Sparkly sharp sour/sweet cherries throughout. Lasting sour cherry finish.

It’s beer 66 and I know I’m getting drunker. My handwriting is getting harder and harder to decipher. However, the beers were so good I couldn’t say no. This smells like cherries, is sour, and full of floaties. Surprised to see that its just a regular fruit beer. I would’ve thought a lambic.

Cherry aroma some rope and barnyard yeasty,bacteria funk, very balanced. Sharp initial sour acid on the palate, some NyQuil coughs drop but all well balanced and enjoyable. Great carbonation...overall a great enjoyable cherry lambic....excellent.

Liquide d’une fluorescence impressionnante, belle mousse rosé ambitieuse, un nez autant sauvage qu’acidulé avec une tonne de cerises, pas beaucoup de sucre en perspective. En bouche c’est une acidité tranchante qui nous accueille dans un déluge de cerises surette, une alléchante verdure termine l’escapade. Excellente buvabilité.

The aroma was very much mostly cherry with a horsey barnyard underneath. It poured a hazy deep red with a pinkish head that dissipated quickly leaving no lace at all. I drank this at about 12ºC, and it started out with a nice interplay between sweet and sour. It got better as it warmed to room temperature, and by the end of this 750mL bottle, it was decidedly delicious. Very tart without being too mouth puckering. The blend is spot on. A pleasantly thin-ish mouthfeel that got more viscous the warmer the ale got. Overall I enjoyed this one a lot. I am always hesitant to give such high marks, but damnit this one deserves it.

750 ml bottle [best before 9/2006 - drank fresh 1/2004]: pours a slightly transparent purple/maroon with quite a few clear bubbles between the body and the glass. Light pink head exudes a full and funky aroma: mashed cherry skins, iron, well-worn leather, along with cold, dry cobwebs. Flavours straight out of a deep, dry stone cave: limestone, must, leather, oak, and a dry, tart cherry bitterness in the finish. What an amazing beer, from a brewery that is quickly moving up in my book!

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2004 This beer pours a beautiful murky red with a soft white head. Aroma is similar to a lambic with some cherry and citrus. The cherry flavor is subtle and smooth, fresh, balances nice and the sweetness does not take away from the underlying sourness. Absolutely wonderful, and a huge hit with everyone who tried this during the night, beer drinker or not.

75cl bottle dated 01/06 making this bottle a bit over 3years old. Tissue papper wrapper reveals bottle with absolutely no lable. Cherry red with slight head retained. Sour, sour cherry, smells like a Lambic. Drinks quite well if you like sours! Taste is an assortment of different sours, some barnyard leather and cherry. I really dig this brew, makes me want to drink a Cantillon.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2008 20040600 Brewtopia’04. Red, plum skin color, murky, no head. Bursting ripe cherry on nose. Reminds me of early season Flathead cherries: sour, tart cherry flavor, sort of musty on nose and tongue. Dry and sweet.
Re-rate at Spuyten Beast of the Yeast 20070610. Very effervescent and lithe. Nice cherry tartness with maybe a hoppy bite? Chock full of cherries. bumped score slightly from 8-3-9-4-15
