I liked it a little more than the framboise. I should probably rate the framboise a little lower than the 4.2 it currently has. the cherry is a little less sweet and more tart. Those qualities make a litlle more beer like.

Pinkish red with a very pink head. Obviously a unique color created by the presence of cherry. It has a very nice fermented cherry aroma, noticably sweet with some sourness around the edges. The taste of tart cherries dominates, as would be expected, what I wasnít expecting was how smooth it was. Quite astringent with some hints of other fruit, mostly raspberry, and it leaves a nice mild sourness on the toung.

Sweet cherry cough drop aroma. Brownish-red with pink-white fizzy head that diminishes to thick ring. Sweet cherries and sugar in the flavour. Cherry candy. Smooth mouthfeel with gentle carbonation. Lightly effervescent on the tongue. Bottle. Sampled with MartinT and Rastacouere.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Surprised that I like this stuff so much. Deep cherry red body with a pinkish head. Aroma was wonderfully cherry and sweet. Lively carbonation and smooth, velvety mouthfeel. Syrupy. Flavor was sweet cherries and pleasant and refreshing. Not beer-like but still very, very good. Nice summer sipping drink. Good dessert beer.

Ruby Coloring. Small Pink Head. A beer to have for dessert. Very Fruity...cherry flavor not too overpowering...sweet...but well balanced, excellent lambic.

Rastacouere (6145) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2004
Cloudy pinkish ruby hue. Light pinkish white head that turns into a film, but remain satisfying to look at. Explosion of cherries in the nose, extreme sweetness that approaches vanilla. Very mild wheat acidity, but seriously too sweet to refresh. Cloying finish, lively carbonation, medium soft body.

badgerben (4529) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2004
jDark red color with a dark pink head that vanishes quickly. Aroma of cherries. Very, very swet flavor of cherries. Tastes like Ludenís cough drops which is a double edge sword: Ludenís tastes great, but Iím not sure I want my beer to taste like a cough drop no matter how good the cough drop tastes. Iíd say itís an excellent starter beer in the fruit lambic area, but Iím sure there are better.

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2004
Nice aromaís of cherries(not sirup) lose foamy head. Strong, but sweet cherry flavour, some freshness is still present. Itís to sweet for me, but itís a good example, and itís delicious as granitť, or served very cold with chocolatemousse.

MartinT (8247) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2004
Sickeningly sweet cherry aroma bordering cough drops...Same body and dominance of sweetness as the PÍche, with the same bubbles who thankfully lighten the cloying sugar...Another pseudo-lambic, sugar prostitute...

Very hazy dark-ruby red; pink head, some lace. Awful syrupy-cherrysweets nose. Several Belgian super-sweet candies come to mind. Taste is combination of again over-sweet, syrupy childrensí sweets, and a sourish, acidic taste, which reminds me of citric acid, AFAIK the only organic acid never produced naturally in beer. Lemony, anyway, very citric finish. There is also a cyanic flavour, from the stones, much more convincing. Oily (the stones again? - DO they add some whole cherries?), maintaining a strange balance with the acids. Very much like the draught kriekenlambic. Candy-like, sad.
