Deep amber with a thin, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of sour cherries, brown sugar, and yeast. Huge cherry taste - like over-ripe wild cherries, also a finish of rasberries. Amazing tart kick to this beer - it’s sour, but the sweetness balances it well. There are also some spices in the finish reminiscent of apple cider. One of the only flemish sours that I enjoyed.

Red colour and light pink head. A cherry explosion! Cherries, cherries and more cherries with sour notes. Quite sweet. Highly carbonated. A beer to surprise people with.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 NIce, and sweet, but it is not a Lambic, it is stronger, and very good body in the beer. I liked it so much, but too strong.

This stuff was delicious. It smelled of tart cherries as soon as I opened the bottle. Tastes of wild cherries. Amazingly balanced. This is a highly enjoyable beer. Pick it up if you see it!

Dark red. Nice aroma of cherries, not synthetic aroma like some fruitbeers. Taste is well balanced between sweet and sour. Do I taste wood? I think... Good fruitbeer.

Draught. Sampled at Delirium Café, Göteborg.
Muddy red-ish with a hint of brown. Deep cherry-stone nose, along with a touch of soil. Musty flavour from ripe cherry-stone. Keep the kids away from this!

750 ml bottle. Deep red pour with a finger thick pink head. Aroma is of sweet cherries. Flavor is sour and tart with a lingering cherry aftertaste. Very good but I enjoyed the raspberry sour ale better.

bottle. 2003 cork. thanks DougShoemaker! pours a rather flat, murky, reddish-brown body. the cherry aroma fills the room - very sweet and juicy along with a light funkiness. sweet juicy cherry body with a soft underlying acidity. I liked this but it’s a bit too sweet at times.
