3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12.7 fl oz corked and caged bottle purchased at Zipps in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Enjoyed in my Lindemans glass. Pour is cherry red, purple, light haze. Pretty much no head, a couple of loose bubbles. Aroma is cherry fruit, along with tannic cherry skin, followed by an earthy sour yeast and horseblanket Brett. Taste is reverse of the nose, I get more the Brett and light sournesses, followed by the tart fruit and cherry skin. Finish dries out with more Brett. Palate is medium bodied and more or less still, there is hardly any discernible carbonation - this did detract. The cork slid out without any noise, so wondering if this one lost its carbonation. Not really any oxidation, though. Regardless, nice flavors, this tasted like a tart cherry juice. Thanks Tyler for helping my Dad grab this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours ruby into a tumbler. Head quickly recedes to hug rim. Sour cherry aromas. Thin with sour funky aspirin upfront turning to tart, still cherry in the lasting finish.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted from a corked and caged 375mL bottle at Delilahís Lambic Fest 2011. Pours cloudy ruby with an average pink head that recedes quickly to a thin collar of lace. The nose is sour lemon with tons of funky cherry, light vanilla, and earthy, animalistic barnyard. The flavor is very tart and acidic with tons of funky, earthy cherry, vanilla oak, a hint of baking spices, and barnyard funk. The body is medium and somewhat sticky, with a hint of bubbly carbonation, and a long sour lemon, funky cherry, and drying tannic finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. [thanks Bu11seye]
Pours hazy dark red with no head. Aroma has sweet cherries, light marzipan, some funk. Rather fat. Low, almost flat carbonation, fine light oily palate. Flavour is that amazingly fat Schaerbeekse cherry, low tartness at first, some slight burning vinegar, mild marzipan. As it warms, the tartness feels more at home and gets more fruity. Not a touch on 3 Fonteinen, but still lovely.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL Bottle. Thanks for sharing James! Nice blend of funk and dank cherries. Tangy fresh flavor.
Still. Way on the cherry juice size. No carbonation. Hardly any
lambic character, just a bit in the finish. Bummer. Nothing to get excited about here, unfortunately.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375, corked and baled. Pours a deep burgundy, totally still, no head or lace. Big tart nose, deep rich berryness of cherries showing--acidic and bright, not a pie cherry essence at all. Deep puckery tang. Watery lightish still body. Bright acidic puckery tang of cherryness on the mid palate as well. With some bubbles and some body, this would be quite a stunner. As it stands, itís a fair bit less interesting than it might be.
