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.

SpongeRuiner (906) - Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Beautiful deep red color. With a creamy cherry red head. Funky and lemon zest aroma. Really nice. A sharp sour upfront and goes all the way down. Very good flavors. Really love the sour consistency.

375ml bottle drunk in the park. Pours deep pinkish red with sour cherry aroma. Taste is massively tangy with super tart cherries. Extremely refreshing.

Strong aroma. Strong cherry also in taste. However, not sweet but rather sour. A bit bitter aftertaste.

bursprak (1230) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle split two ways. Pours hazy deep red with tiny pink lacings. Pretty acidic and complex, loads of cherries, cherry pits, almonds and marcipan. Lovely!

Gerbeer (2321) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2015
375 ml bottle. Pours a garnet red with no head. Aromas of black cherries and vinegar. Flavors of sharp tart cherries. Crisp and sour. Light body. Comes across as a fruity Flanders Red. Tres bon.

fantti (785) - FINLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Pullo @ Beernavigator.com (2014). Kaatuu lasiin tummanpunaisena, ja kirkkaana, noin sormen paksuisella pinkillä vaahdolla, joka katoaa melko pian. Tuoksu on happaman kirsikkainen, mutta siinä on myös makeampaa mansikkaista vivahdetta mukana. Hieman maamaisuutta ja nahkamaisuuttakin on joukossa. Maku on todella happaman kirsikkainen, nyt nahkamaisuus on huomattavasti vahvempaa ja maussa on mukana myös viinimarjaisuutta. Hiven maamaisuutta on niin ikään joukossa. Suutuntuma on äärimmäisen, jopa ikeniä kuivattavan hapan ja hivenen hiilihappoinen. Hieno kriek, jossa tuoksu hieman antoi odottaa itseään, mutta maku antaa lambicien parhaita puolia happamalla marjaisuudellaan.

PhillyCraft (3875) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle, pours purple color with small white head that didn’t stick for that long. aRoma and flavor of sour cherry, acidic plum, light vinegar, and oak. It’s a little short lived and needed more carbonation.
