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".

Lots of lace and reddish colour with lace and a good head. Cherry aroma though sugary sweet, and that is the taste. Its refreshing, but oh way too sweet. Sourness mid-sip would would like much more.A transition to this style beer. Sampled at Coleís Belgian beer fest.

Great cherry brew! It was like it had fresh cherries stuffed in the bottle. The aroma and taste was more of the same. Fresh cherries with a slight tartness to it.

750ml bottle. A great intoduction to the Belgian lambic style beers for the cherry lover. Poored properly this beer produces a well formed pink to purplish head with a great cherry aroma. The flavor is on the sweet side with strong cherry notes and a mild beer flavor. The finish is slightly tart. This lambic is actually quite complex in structure and gains spiciness as it warms. Overall, not a bad fruited beer.

Havenít had many other lambics, but Iím pleased with this one. Had it in a Lindemanís glass that my parents gave me for my birthday. Pours a dark ruby color, little head. Noticable cherry aroma. Pleasant sour cherry tartness, but not much else flavor-wise. Approachable enough that you could serve it to non-beer drinkers.

A tad shy of the Framboise, this was not a bad drop but lacked any lambic-style complexities to be a showstopper. Poured into a flute from the crowned-corked bottle at just on cold. Frothed up on the pour to display a dense, creamy pink head that persisted for the length yet left only minor lacing. The body of beer a sparkling ruby-red. Pronounced candyish cherry nose - quite ripe - with some notes of cough medicine and a sharp acidity that tickles the nostrils. Late hints of vine-clippings and dust developed after a few short swirls in the glass. Quite light in body and frothy on the tongue. Cherries are in full dominance and are sweet, tart and similarly candyish in flavour. Light acidity but more sweet fruit sugars attack the roof of the mouth to give it a nice roundness before a long fruity and powdery, spicy swallow that showed good length. Remained very fresh and was considerably easy to drink with more haste than the full-throttle Framboise. Just didnít excite me in the same way. Refreshing!!!

Dark red, with a pinkish head to it. One can defintely taste the sparkling black cherry in it, not as sweet as the peche one though
