2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours a clear amber/red colour, with a light pink head. The aroma is of bubblegum, cherry pie, yeast. The taste is tart, definite cherry notes, sweet/sour finish. Not bad, taste more like a cherry cooler than a lambic though.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma: Fruit jam? Candy syrup? Not what I was expecting....
Appearance: Transparent cherry red, head is pink and doesnít remain long.
Taste: Cranberry gummy juice. Wheat and straw, slight funk...just weird.
Palate: Cloying, not what Iíd expected...very thick and syrupy. Artificial. Does not finish like a lambic should.
Overall: This is not very good at all. Fake compared to much better offerings...might as well mix old beer with cranberry juice and strawberry jam because thatís what it tastes like.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells like cranberry gummies. A pretty translucent dark pink color. Candy-oriented for a kriek in flavor, and leaning towards cranberry juice. Overall, sweet, but not cloying - an appreciable combination. Cheers to sudden death!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: Obviously a lot of cherry with notes of crystallized fruits and jelly bean. Also found some ether notes. Smells like a fruit salad.
Appearance: Clear red with a thick rocky head lasting a long moment. Marvelous head sticking a lot to glass, leaving a wonderful lacing.
Taste: Attack is all fruit, cherry, with a strong acidity somehow mitigated by the presence of the fruits. We can also find some light malt accents like brown sugar and caramel. Absence of bitterness. Itís like a very fruity cider. Very refreshing though, but you have to like the extreme acidity of lambics. For myself, this is the very first one I was able to drink all the bottle.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2013 Don?t let the somewhat off smell deter you. This tastes amazing. Reminds me a lot of Duchesse de Bourgonne.
