3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark burgundy with an off red head. Aroma is mostly funky cherry and yeasty. Light and sweet in taste, this can best be described as that it’s similar to NG Belgian Red.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Purple red, with a medium, slightly pink head that quickly vanishes. Faint nose, some red berries and sweetness. Taste is good but not great; sweet, fruity and refreshing. Somewhat one dimensional and flat.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pink/red in color, light rose head consisting of large bubbles, frothy consistency, well carbonated. Aromas of yeast, strong breads, metal, and only hints of cherries. Flavors of sugars, sweet cherry syrup at first which blends into a strong tart cherry finish that tickles the back corners of the mouth. Wonderful lacing leaves a good looking empty glass. I wish that I had more experiance with Lambics to I could better compare this beer, and rate accordingly.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Bottled:
Nice cherry aroma without any artificial componentes as chapeau or lindemans. Sourly cherry flavor, but cherry flavor is very decent. No artificial almond notes. Quite nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brilliant cherry red with a thick pink head. Slightly musty with a baked cherry pie nose and slight citrus. Med body with light sweetness that is not cloying. Not very complex but very yummy. Nice basic cherry flavors and light lemon. Not much else, but hell of a nice quaffer!

Deep red color with huge red creamy head, lace. Not very strong earthy cherry aroma. Sourish cherry juice flavor, slightly earthy. Medium-bodied. Finishing to sharp tartness. Dry aftertaste. More or less ok kriek but not very complex. (6/4/7/3/13 3.3)

Clear pinky red color, good cherry reddish head, lace. Cherry caramel aroma with light tartness. Light sourness in otherwise sweetish kriek, notes of cherry stone. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Should be more tart. (7/3/7/3/13 3.3)

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Reddish color brew with Orangey tints. Odd lumpy, spotty foam head. A sweet and sour aroma, dominated of course by cherries but with some oakiness too. Closer to the sweetness of a Belle-Vue than the tartness of Cantillon. I’m starting to enjoy these Lambics!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured red with a lasting pink head. Light cherry aroma with a hint of dustiness. Sweet cherry with a dry yet not tart finish. A bit chalky actually. Medium bodied. Ok but nothing special.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
.5 L bottle: Pours a solid red in the glass with a thick white head. Tastes distinctly of cherry, which is a welcome addition to the standard beer, although I wouldn’t have it every day.
