2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (375ml - corked & caged, green). Clear, bright cherry red pour, smallish pink diminishing fizzy head. Smells of sweet cherry and paper, only a light whiff of funk in the background - kind of artificial, really.The taste is all cherry popsicle, specifically INCLUDING the wooden stick in the middle. Syrupy, sticky, slightly acidic but mostly just like liquid candy - not great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, bought @ Belgisk Bryg, Cph.
zpours clear red with a small, frothy off-white to light pink head. Aroma has light cherries, light tartness and some funkiness. Mouthfeel is light with relatively high carbonation. Flavour is mildly fruity, light tartness. There is not so much taste in here - not as artificial as some of the chapeau for example. Okay and quite drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
clear dark red pour, nice pinkish head. Aroma is of cherries obviously, but it’s a tad artificial, it also reminds me of black cherry ice cream. The flavour is very sweet, and just a tad sour, but barlely. Some decent cherry notes in the flavour, but again, a tad artifical. Meh, not bad, but too sweet overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Mort Subite in Brussels. Crystal clear ruby red colored body with a pink billowy head. Flavor of candied sweet and syrupy cherries, with a light sprite/cola brightness throughout. Soft carbonation, and overall pale and empty, lacking depth. More like cherry soda than lambic, but it does has some creamed fruit/milk notes to help balance the sugar, but overall it’s very sweet and purely commercial.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a fruit punch red with a white head. Aroma is light, sour fruit. The flavour is well crafted, sweet, sour, well balanced, the right carbonation. The palate is a tad syrupy but I sort of expected it would be. All and all a tasty brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, LCBO. Clear red, soemwhat foamy white head that diminishes quickly. Mild cherry nose, not bad. Lots of cherry in taste, all up front, giving way to mild cherry/raspberry linger.Well carbonated,a little light for me. This starts and finishes quickly, which is too bad as I enjoy some of the flavours here. Not bad.
