3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Corked bottle 37.5 cl. Pours a small light red head that almost immediately disappears. Dark ruby/red appearance with some hints of brown. Aroma is a mix of malts and cherry, sweetness and sourness. Taste starts sour, turns cherry sweet on the tongue and turns sour again in the aftertaste. Oily palate, good lacing. Very soft carbonation.

Bottle 0.33l from Dranken Geers Gent. Pours deep brown red with almost no head. Aroma is cherry. Taste is a good balanced of sweet and sour cherries. I would have preferred a bit more tartness though. Overall good stuff but a touch too artificial.

Lovely presentation. When it’s poured in the glass a red dark beer appears, with a small and persistent pale pink foam head. The aroma it’s highly artificial, being that something disappointing. Despite of that the taste is quite good with a nice sour end.

375 ml corked and caged bottle, wrapped in paper. Poured into a tulip at home. ABV 6%
Pours a very dark red ruby colour, with a bit more than one finger of off-white head, with good retention, leaving light lacing as I drink the beer.
Aroma of cherries, smells a bit sour, some candy sugar as well.
Very nice taste, sweet and sour at the same time, with lots of cherries in there. Aftertaste is also slighty sour.
Thin body with soft carbonation. Slighty tart palate.
Overall very good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet and tart alchol, heavy on the cherries. Poured darker than I had expected. Heavier on the booze than Lindemans lambics and not very carbonated. I really enjoyed it. A quality lambic.
