omhper (19187) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2003
Sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden.
Dark clear red. Aroma of black cherries. Fruity and intensely flavourful with balanced acidity. Though it is complex and very vinous, and the flavour of the cherries is just wonderful it takes a bit of the edge of the complexity of the unblended lambic, making it only slightly less superb.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 19, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2009 2009-10-09, bag-in-the-box at Ølbutikken, Copenhagen, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Hazy ruby color. Light cherry aroma. Quite flat, with light carbonation, a bit astringent, and probably not fresh; light fruitness; short final. Something’s strange.

2008-05-29, bag-in-the-box at Plan B, Copenhagen, 7-5-7-3-14=36
Hazy ruby color, no head. It has a moderate cherry aroma. The mouthfeel is unusually round, with a moderate tartness and fruitness, and some residual sugars. Less aggressive than expected.

2005-05-20, bag-in-the-box, 8-4-7-3-15=37
Very nice, balanced cherry aroma, with cherry kernels. Quite sweet, reasonable, not impressive, but well made.

7th March 2010. Hazy red beer - a little mauve tint to it. No head. Just a little carbonation. Fresh cherry - morello. Gets a tiny bit sour before the dry finish. Simple stuff but slips down easy!
