3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This lambic pours a deep red color from a corked and capped 335ml bottle. Medium sized reddish white foamy head. Aroma is cherries and sweet, with a slight touch of funk. A medium bodied lambic. Malts are fruity and sweet. Lots of cherry flavors, in fact its almost all cherry flavors. Mostly sweet cherries with some tart/sour cherry flavor. Some funk and yeast but mostly cherries. Lively carbonation. Smooth taste. A touch of funk at the finish, but really doesnít have all the funk/tart/sourness necessary for a lambic. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not a bad fruity beer at all. This one poured with a blatantly obvious maroon redness, a nice head, and great lacing. The aroma was of cherries, roses, and a little bit of funk. The flavor was of strong cherries with a little bit of the lambic funk in the finish. Perfect level of carbonation. A very nice beer within style, but this borders on non-beerness. Curving for within style (and recognizing the right time for a beer like this), two thumbs up.

43F Bottle Flute. Aroma was slighty sour, with notes of cherry, yeast is just barely noticble. Pour a nice red with a slightly pink red, with dark sediment, fairly clear. Nice tastes of cherry, with great sour notes, and a very dry and delicious finish. Very good natural cherry taste. Very light mouth feel with decent carbonation of very small bubbles. Good brew, appears to nicely follow the style.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: For its style it is very good, fresh sweet cherry taste with a slight bitterness and acidity. A great occasional beer.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark, pinkish color witha large light pink head. Aromo is of sour black cherries. Taste is very good. Black Sour Cherries is the main thing that I can taste. Smooth with very little harsh bitterness. For my first fruit beer, I am very impressed.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2007 To start off, this is the first fruit lambic Iíve tried. Itís too sweet, and the cherry flavors didnít seem natural or grab me at all.

A truly fine fruit lambic. A deep red color with a pink head. Rich fresh cherry taste with a mild yeast finish. Highly recommended.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle poured a hazy ruby red with a small lasting dark pink head. Aromas of sour cherries. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of sour cherries, wood and and a hint of yeast with a crisp slightly tart lingering finish. Could stand to be more tart to be a proper lambic, but not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours with nice Belgian lace. Colour is red (obviously!) without being deep or ruby. Sweet, cherry aroma in nose, leading to a sweet body. Finish is slightly tart. I would have preferred more tartness in the finish, but a solid beer for a warm summerís day on the patio. A good fruit beer for people unfamiliar with the style or who "donít like beer".
