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.

Old rating rerated 23.04.2014, 0,375l bottle @ home:
No head, just some bubbles. Aroma is slightly mild, thinner, oak, grass, paint, red berries. Taste is very acidic sour, sorrel, raw rhubarb, soda powder, lemon, sour cherries, red currants, unripe sour berries, hints of thinner. Medium bitterness, lovely dry acidic mouthfeel. Very nice.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 2, 2014
Taster at the White Horse, Parsons Green, 25th May 2011, courtesy of tdtm82. Bright, slightly hazy red. Nose has vinegar, tar, glace fruit. Just a teensy teensy bit sour... makes the previous beer taste like pear juice.

hirigalzkar (2282) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle. Sweeter, but also more sour compared to Cantillons kriek. Big strawberry notes. Maybe not as complex and deep as other offerings, but sure drinkable and nice.
