2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet top-fermented cherry beer based on La Botteresse Blonde with above average strength for the style. Firm, very thick, moussy, pale beige head, deep murky burgundy colour, not unlike raw beetroot juice. Fruit in the nose, cherries of course but in a natural way, no noticeable extracts, blackcurrant, plums, apple, lemon, honey, earth, dough, caramel, vague cheesy hops. Soft taste, bit milky mouthfeel, ’real’ fruit sourishness, no cloying sweetness or artificial lemonade as so often in this style; light malty base, fruit quickly diminishing yet remaining present in a subtle way, mild and brief hoppiness in the finish. Weird kriek, a bit restrained on the fruit side and perhaps a bit low in body, but at least not artificial or sickly sweet and no other obvious flaws, at least not in the sample I tasted.

Bouteille 33cl @7%
cuivre opaque, col blanc-rosé mousse effervescente qui disparait vite.
Arôme de cerise avec fleurs de houblon, la cerise rappelle un peu ce fruit confit et reste assez faible;
Une bière légère en cerise avec note de malt laissant une fine couche de chocolat.
Le niveau de cerise est présent, mais je trouve ce dernier un peu faiblard.
Une fine amertume se ressent sur la fin le tout avec ce côté aigre de la cerise qui reste en retrait. Bière reste légère en bouche.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, bought @ EG.
Pour is redish orange amber with a small, fizzy, pink head. Aroma has mild sour malt, some clear cherries, light marzipan, soft notes of cellar and mildly vinious. Medium, prickly carbonation, fair dry and slightly watery palate. Flavour is mildly tart, some cherries, notes of cellar, some malts. Mild sweetness, some tartness. Not all bad, but only okay.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(33cl bottle best by October 2010 thanks to bu11zeye) cloudy copper-orange with few bubbles. Nose is funky, barrel, tart cherry, maple, smells awesome! Taste is lightly acetic, black cherry, woody, nice mild astringency. Thin body but makes up for it in the cherry linger.
