Poured out looking very much like a darker pink champagne, with a frothy pink head topping a body of what could’ve passed for cream soda. Aroma featured red cherries as did the taste. Mouthfeel was a bit on the thin side of the scale, and it finished acceptably.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2009 Drank in a chalice from a bottle in Brussels at Delirium Cafe..
This is very good lambic.
it smells great very sweet with cherries.
The beer has a beautiful red/brown color with a white head, not a lot lacing.
It tastes sweet with cherries dominating but has a nice sour kick too.

Bouteille verte de 375 ml. Arômes de cerises, légère touche de bois humide. Robe rouge et claire, effervescence moyenne. Plutôt mince en bouche, les cerises moyennement sucrées sont accompagnés par une touche de chêne humide et une légère présence de levures sauvages. Finale très légèrement acide et sucrée. Une bonne bière de dessert.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 25 cl. A dark red, rather uclear colour with little pink head. The smell is one of cherries and fruity. The taste is, next to the cherries, surprisingly not sweet at all, but sour, like you are drinking a "Oude Kriek". Dry finish, but the taste, however seems sometimes a bit artificial (which is also the reason why this is not called "Oude Kriek" I presume). Good one to drink, but no topper in its style.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
"Rosy brown body with a pick crown floating on top, don’t know why I just don’t like the way this looks. Very mild sour cherry aroma and that’s it, simple but non-offensive smell. Taste is also very mild and simple, hints of cherry and apple juice with just some light malt. Flavour is actually just more sour then it has flavour. Has a powdery quality to it with a very dry finish. Very drinkable but this lacks any complexity and it just sucks compared to others."

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours light ruby/rose with thin white head.
aroma of cherry, light hops, plenty of fruits, elderberries, not nearly as fruity as the xtreme version.
Taste, fruity, again with cherries and elderberries, though only 15% and remain mild palate, light sugary notes with some fruit tartness.
Enjoyable, true to the style.

Flaske: Flot lyserød øl med et kæmpeskum. Duft af tyggegummi og en meget lille smule stald. Smagen er sød, meget sød. Ikke meget Lambeek over denne øl.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I tried this beer on June 1, 2009 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a beautiful translucent red with a thin creamy light tan coloured head that stuckj around. The aroma was tart cherries, some wheat malt, and spice. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with weak carbonation, mildly disappointing for the style. The flavour is tart, bold, with definite cherry hints, and a tart and bitter finish.
