So good cherry aroma, Very raisin malts and slight roasted malts that adds so much to the multi dimensional. Great OAK. Slight wine and very tart. ANOTHER MUST!!!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A wonderful fruit lambic. This beer has a very nice balance of tartness from the cherry to the sweetness. I do get a very slight bitterness, as if it came from that tart quality of the cherry, but still a very fine beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The colour is a light and quite dirty brown, fine head. It has a fantastic almond and cherry aroma. Well-balanced, coffee, cherry and burnt almond flavor. Good acidity. Long, well-balanced aftertaste.

Bottle thanks to thirdeye11. It had a dark red cherry color w/ very little head. Aroma was of cinnamon, black cherry, and grenadine. Flavor was tart with black cherry, grenadine, and cinnamon. Not a fan of this beer!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle courtesy of Wallybrau. This poured a rich ruby color with a minimal head. Aroma was great, perhaps the best part of the experience. It smells like your sticking your nose into a barrel full of cherries, very sweet. Flavor is also dominated by cherries, but notes of spices and some oak (as it warms) are also present. A good fruit beer, perhaps a bit too much cherries though.

Naturally pours a nice red with a tannish head. Strong scents of cherries that taste even better. Highly carbonated. Very refreshing. AWESOME

Big 2002 Bottle- I waited a while to try this beer since it was more than 25oz i didnt think i could finish it on my own, and of course once again i was wrong. I shared this beer with my loved ones on X-mas. They enjoyed it even though they had no clue what it was. This beer poured out great and the carbonation did not lack(2002). Poured out valentine red or another example is raddish red. The head is thick and white as white. not much lacing but that didnt matter this time. The taste is of dried fruit not only cherries but a bit a apricots, and some swedish fished all combined, the finish is a bit dry and sweet more similar to flavored maple syrup.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours deep red with a thin off-white head. Very sweet aroma of cherries. Taste is very tart with strong cherry presence. Very hard to drink much of this because of the sweetness.
