Fun beer to have once in a while. Like a girly drink that you order when nobody is looking. The fruity flavor is strong but enjoyable. I drink it and like it but it's not really beer in my book.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 This looks fantastic - deep bright cherry red with a large pink head, excellent pink lacing. Nice cherry malt aroma. Taste is very sweet - especially up front, with a sour cherry taste at the back and sides of tongue. Moderately dry finish mixed with granulated sugar. Overall, this tastes too "sweetened". Could use more tartness.

Cute red color. Lip-smacking good. Sweet and sour. I dig the rasperry more, however.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2009 Hazy rose and effervescent body with a pink head. Black cherry aroma with some underlying lambic muskiness. Flavor of a big fat ripe black cherry. Sweet, tart, and good for dessert. Too many kool-aid qualities in terms of appearance, aroma, and sweetness to rate higher.

Very sweet and very cherry. Small pink head, red body. Too sweet, but still enjoyable.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2003 Let's put it this way, this is the ONLY beer my wife EVER liked. Has become a holiday tradition to break it out for the sissy women folk. As for my opinion, it's amazing the impact of the cherry flavour it certainly packs a fruity punch (no pun intended). I understand the trouble that goes into making lambic and have a great respect for it. I prefer the gueze myself. A much appreciated beer for numerous reasons.

Super rich, glowing, ruby red color with a fluffy pinkish-purpley head that foamed up fast to about an inch high and faded to a solid skim always present and leaves some patchy stings of pink lace. Smell is all cherry, wild black and red cherry abounds, fresh and solid tartness, sour, and oaky sweet, pungent and pefumey pleasant nose. Much like a good lambic should be. Taste brings out the cherryness right from out of the smell with a smooth and soothing coat of mild cherry of the black variety mostly. Tame and steardy mellow tart and souring, nothing to lip puckering a bit of the sweet oakyness comes through in the middle part of the finish which then ends in a nice little mellow tangy bite. This stuff is incredibly mellowing smooth and a great after dinner sipper. Feel is zippy and fresh, melts away all senses of what may have lingered before as it fully charges the mouth with mellow tart and sourness with its cherry crammed full bodied. My oh my what a treat. The low ABV means there's just no stoppin' til the cork stops poppin'.

OK, so this is not my style. It was a bit like drinking a cherry soda. It poured a nice red color with an almost pinkish head. It looked good and smelled like a cherry soda. Too sweet for me.

Sweet black cherry aroma.Plum appearance with small pink head.Very sweet cherry syrup flavor.One of the sweetest of all the lambics I've ever tried.Lacks the complexity and mustiness of other less well known brands but it,s still pretty tasty.

Although not quite as good as the rasberry due to a slight mouth pucker, this is one of the best beers I have ever had. Really this is not a beer flavor but one of cherries of course. It is like a fizzy cherry juice that is very fresh and refreshing. Try it you'll like it.
