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.

Geiserich (3696) - Linz, AUSTRIA - APR 30, 2006
Bottled:
Very sourly with much acid and cider notes. Only a touch of cherry flavor. Sourly, astringent finish. Acid notes are maybe too extreme.

Aroma is great, quite cherry, lemons, a bit of clove? Taste is similar quite sour, maybe a bit of vinigar, something to have before dine maybe.

weeare138 (936) - Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2006
Thanks to biggcb for this... Appears a hazy orange amber with a small white head that quickly fades into a mild collar in the glass. Smell is of cork, tart cherries, horseblanket, musty antiques, & old socks. Taste is of tart, vinegar soaked, sour cherries with mild cork present in the taste. Mouthfeel is bone dry, mouth puckering, and acidic.

egajdzis (5573) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2006
Poured a hazy, reddish amber color that left no head or lacing on the glass. Aroma of leather, some citrus fruits, oak, horseblanket, cork, caramel malt, and a fair amount of phenols. Taste of tart green apple, malty, caramel sweetness, and an acidic, sour cherry finish. Moderate carbonation.

Thanks to biggcb. Pours a hazy golden red with no head. Aroma was sour, tart cherry and some yeast. Flavor was also that sour tart cherry, which I enjoyed.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2006 12th beer at Bill’s party. Bam! What a tart cherry bite on this. Very sour, but I’m beginning to like the true lambics. First rate 5,4,6,2,13. Really smells like a Flemish sour but with a little ammonia or vinegar throw in - very odd aroma. Equally odd taste. Sour for sure, but not in the same was as a Flemish. very funky, has the cherry in it, but is not easy to drink. Funky is the only word that can describe this.
