The taste is also much better than I expected. Dryer. More complex. Still dominated by the cherries, but mixing more aggressively than the nose. Wood? Yeah, we’ve got that. Tart? Heck yeah. Vinegar? Slight enough to be interesting, yet not effect the drinkability. This stuff just flows down my throat. I could drink half a gallon of this stuff. It’s very well done and ever so drinkable.

Pours a dark reddish burgundy with a fast diminishing head. Aroma of almond-extract and cherries. Hints of oak, sweets and fruits. Taste is lightly sweet with some woody-sourish notes. Body is light to medium with medium carbonation.

95 vintage bottle shared at the 2014 tasting in the Cellar of Moeder Lambic Saint-Gilles. Pours cloudy red with no head. Aroma is completely strong cherry still. Flavor is moderate sour with a soft mouthfeel. The fruit is still so fresh in the palate. Medium bodied with flat carbonation.

Darn_it (15) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2014
Very nice beuatiful deep red brown. Fresh fruit taste up front and moves into caramel, vanilla, candied suger. Reminds me of candied apples at times. Slight wood dryness but not much, its subtle. But there is not too much subtly in this beer. Flavors are up front, sweet but not sticky sweet.

Grzesiek79 (2966) - Radom, POLAND - APR 8, 2014
Znakomite piwo, wspaniałe prawie pod kazdym wzgledem. Po pierwsze papier recznie owijany. Piwo starzone po zakupie jakies 3 lata w piwnicy. A i tak w momencie zakupu pewnie bylo juz wiekowe. Moze nie zawielka piana ale za to pelny smak, cierpki, octowato kwaskowaty a przy tym lekko przelamujaca slodycz wisni. Winna wytrawnosc, taninowe piwo. Estry mocno wbijajace sie w nozdrza. Piwo godne lambickow. Osad nie do konca dal sie wybeltac z dna butelki. Profesjonalny i naturalny korek szampanowy, ale z gracja wystrzelil po cichu. Polecam to eleganckie piwo.

Crash_the_dog (117) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - APR 5, 2014
Slightly cloudy, rose-pink color, with an old-lace head that quickly dissipates. Nose is slightly tart cherry, followed by some slightly tart cherry. Taste is significantly more sour, although the berry and cherry notes come through loud and clear. Crisp and light, with almost a fruit soda profile. Terrific for the style. Not too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lovely and surprising sweet/sour taste that lasts. Colour is nice abd red. The foam dies away quite fast but the taste makes for it. Very drinkable!
