2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(on bottle)Nazy pink/dark pink. Overwhelming smell of marzipan - in a bad way. Carbonation like a sodapop and about the same flavour. Perky finish, still fresh, with a tone of sourness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mostly transparent deep pink with a large bubbled rose head. Strong nose of sweet cherries, grass. Flavor was more like cherry syrup, sweet and sugary, no tartness at all. Everything was hidden beneath the overwhelming cherry flavor.

Bottle. Pours a deep red color and smells of cherries. A very sweet tasting drink excellent for desserts.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet/sour black cherry aroma and dominant flavor with an intense carbonation that cleanses the palate and tickles the taste buds. Grassiness in the aftertaste that I enjoyed.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pouring a deep, brownish red with a respectable pink head, this is one pleasant drink. The aroma was that of dark cherries laid out on a frshly mown lawn. It has a lively but soft carbonation, easy to drink. The taste is of dark red cherries with a slightly tart finish. Sweet.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2006 It has a strong cherry flavor but it still presents itself well as a beer despite having a low alcohol content. You add too much alcohol and you have Nyquil. I do find Lindeman’s a bit too acidic at times in its other offerings but did not find this particular lambic too acidic. Rerating 5-15-06: the sweetness was still a bit too high but it was easy to chug this one down!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rich cherry red with a thin head. Sour cherry halls aroma with slightly medicinal properties throughout. Not bad but not great - would have liked the finish to be a little more tart and a little less sweet.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2006 Extremely fruity nose a lot like cherries and cheerios. Pours a hazy brown/red with a thick beige head. Kind of a mellow tartness but well balanced with the just as mellow sweetness. Very easy to drink.
