3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12.7 oz bottle - I guess I need to find a good explanation of the difference between a fruit lambic and a Flemish sour ale as I thought this one was the former. Anyway, it pours a beautiful deep ruby color with a thin, fizzy head. The aroma is sour cherries with a hint of funk. The sweet cherry flavor has mild tartness and very little funk with the tartness getting more noticeable in the finish. Nice beer.

Pours dark garnet with a reddish tan head. The aroma has musty tart cherries - lush and rich with light earth and oak smoothing things out. Medium body with plentiful soft carbonation. The flavor has much of what is on the aroma with lots of lushness at first and then it gets sharper. The finish is tart, sour and funky with a tannin-like presence and hints of medicinal traits. A decent beer, but there are better fruit beers and flemish sours.

750mL bottle. Dark purple colored body, slightly murky. Nose of light creamed cherries and red grapes, lightly lactic, light pungency in the nose, nothing too intense but also not sugary sweet. Flavor is similar, light creamy black cherries, mild sourness, more from the yeast than the actual fruit. Both the lambic qualities and the cherry qualities are pretty subdued, but overall it’s refreshing, lightly sour and enjoyable. Not top-tier lambic, though.

Thanks to KAggie 97 for sharing this. Deep reddish brown pour with strong raspberry notes. Very carbonated raspberry and bing cherry flavors. Good stuff.

Slightly hazy brick red color with a thin pink head. Slight funk sits atop a cherry aroma. Moderate sourness completes a cherry and blackberry cobbler taste. Very nice.

Bottle. Pours deep red with a nose of cranberry and black cherry. Average sour cherry and cranberry flavors that sit atop a spikey and tingly liquid. Refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bouteille 2006 (09/2016). Couleur rouge-rosée avec une mince mousse qui persiste et trace le verre. Arome de cerises, de vinaigre de vin et d’acidité. Gout sûr et sucré, vinaigre et cerise. Très particulier. Effervescence et corps moyen à faible. Serai curieux d’y goûter plus agée.

A great Flemish style ale. Poured a murky purple-red. Smelled of sour cherries. This my favorite style of beer and this one is in my top 3. Delicious!
