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.

gyllenbock (5268) - Stockholm, - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle at Akkurat in February 2013. (vintage 2003, we also tried a bottle from 1998 but the on from 2003 was tastier so I rate that one) Clear ruby with a small head. Aroma of sour cherries, some wood, dust and funk. The taste was nicely sour with cherries, wood, vinegar and funk. Medium carbonation and a light body. The finish was dry. A very nice one!

freretoc (974) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 7, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 37.5cl à la brasserie, couleur rouge rubis, pas de mousse n’i d’effervescence. Une bière avec une attaque sur la cerise acide et plus rien... Un défaut à l’ambouteillage ?

wojciechianna (132) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 17, 2015
Red color, no head. Aroma of wine and homemade cherry juice, with a hint of funky aroma. Tastes very dry and sour, paralyzes tongue. Unique beer.

MrHangover (2989) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle @ New Years Tasting. Pours a hazy dark pink beer with a small pinkish head on top. Aroma of cherries, sour funk and Brett. Flavor is stringent and sour, loads of the cherries return here along with some oaky notes. Fruity sour finish, decent carbonation, decent stuff.

Karyots (23) - BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2014
A 2009 vintage bottle. Opened with a soft pop. Poured out a hazy ruby red- a beautiful color when held up in light. Smell of cherries, blueberries - all rotting with a faint smell of yoghurt. Went off like a sour bomb in the mouth. Complex, gooseberries and lots of sourness. Fantastic !
