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.

TearsforBeers (183) - Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Oh man this stuff looks like happiness in a glass! I wish I had the wherewithal to age some of these for decades. It’s deep red with white fizzy foam. The aroma is spritzy, fruitily acidic, a little bit of chalk, fresh. The flavor is lightly sweet, acidic yet calming, it’s like the Platonic form of what a cold tart cherry should taste like, the finish reminds me of cherry skins. There’s an undertone of horsey funk too. Mouthfeel is light and fizzy. This is delightful, just the beer I wanted today.

Un beau de nez qui allie la cerise du nord au lambic et une bouche tendue, ciselée, longue et harmonieuse.

Tsekouratos (482) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - JUL 25, 2015
750ml bottle from Etre Gourmet, Belgium. Pours a hazy red color with no head at all. Aromas of cherries and oak. Taste is really sour and intense. Cherries, leather, oak, red wine, rotten fruits. Hell yeah! Body is thin with no carbonation.

bnokk (276) - Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2015
APPEARANCE – burgundy in color, thin wispy head, no lacing. NOSE – very sour with notes of sweetness. FLAVOR – packs a power punch of sour on the first sip that immediately yields to the sweetness from the cherries. The amount of sourness varies throughout the glass.

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.
