UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 I love this beer. It is a great beer to drink regularly- thanks to spector. Smells wonderful--lots of sour cherry aroma. I love the color, it’s pretty--a nice red color. The taste is a sour cherry flavor, but not overpowering in the sour department. Great beer.

Beautiful color. Red-cranberry color. Pink head. Cherries, cherries, cherries. Sweet aroma trickles the nose. Sweet taste- like a candy, cherry jolly rancher. Light and refreshing. Sour. Beautiful flavor. Yummo! Champagne feelings on my tongue. Best beer all night.

Bottle courtesy of sloth (thanks Bert!). This was my favorite beer when I just started getting into beer. Pours a deep red with a pretty, foamy pink head. Aroma of cherries, sweettart candies. Flavor of tart cherries and more candy. Nice tartness with just the right amount of cherry and sweetness. Ah, heaven...I’m so glad I got to try this again. A pity this beer is retired.

Flemish sour ’kissed’ with cherries. 11.2 oz bottle (330mL) electric red, pinot colored, whitish-pinkish head. aroma of black cherry soda. tastes like creamy cherry juice. medium texture, light bodied. A very unique find!

Has a very refreshing tart cherry taste. The aroma is very cherry. The color is a very nice dark red. This is a unique beer.

I was recommended this beer by my local beerologist. I loved the aroma, the color. After a few sips I started to enjoy the cherry flavor. Definitely, for me, and after dinner beer.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2008 Pours plum color with a pinkish head. Dissipated mostly. Some lacing. Aroma is sour with some cherries. Flavor is fantastic! Sour, but not as much as other Flemish Ales. Definite cherries without the artificial flavor that plagues so many fruit beers. Refreshingly tart. Finishes very clean. I love this beer!

The best way to describe this: cherries: sour, tarte, sweet, vinegary, woody. A great beer that proves cherries can be used with a great amount of variety.
