COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the result of blending black cherries lambic of different ages followed by a second fermentation in the bottle. Storage is similar like geuze. All bottles are champagne corked and can be reserved, in normal conditions, for more than thirty years. It is obvious that an amazing taste evolution takes place.

Sten (694) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2014
Dark red, ruby beer with a fast fading pink head. Nice sour aroma of cherries. Flavour starts of mildy sour, fades into a sweet undertone of cherries and ends in a long sour aftertaste. (Corked bottle 75cl)

GTAEgeek (1390) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle shared by Joe. Pours cloudy red, with no head. The aroma is black cherries, caramel, oak, cloves, and lemons. Very tart and acidic, with a nice fruity sweetness. Medium to heavy body, creamy, and crisp. Overall, this is a very nice, incredibly tart, but well balanced beer. Not as approachable (i.e. fruit jelly) as Lindemans, but much more complex. Thanks, Joe!
