3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home brought back from Copenhagen. Aroma is sharp cherry, with a bit of sherbert. Nice kriek colour and pleasant fizziness. Taste is cherry of course, but quite like the sweet cherry drops. Very nice sourness which rises at the end. Very nice beer, but pales a little in comparison with the lambic biggies.

I’m pretty sure this is just Girardin unblended lambic with cherries, but I won’t complain. Solid stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle shared by Travlr: Pours a clear deep ruby red with a light pink wispy-lacing head. Has a fresh tart cherry nose with a touch of vinous oak. Starts with effervescent carbonation and tart cherry flavor with some earthy funk and cheesy notes before a drier oaky puckering finish. Could use a little age, but is pretty true to style.
