Really sour. No metallic aftertaste. I really liked this. One of the better lambics that I have tried. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

johnnnniee (2917) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Dusty bottle from Jaspers Solid fairly clear deep purple color with a bubbly pink tinged head that dissipates quickly. Huge tart cherry on the nose with hints of funk and just a touch of vinegar. Earthy funky extremely tart flavor with again big tart cherry. Medium body puckering mouthfeel. Never had this before, why did I wait so long?

Oakes (13536) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2015
Dark purple colour. Slight balsamic note on the nose with a lot of cherry. Ample tartness, subtle cherry that, while carrying a little bit of sweetness does not counterbalance the intensity of the lactic tartness. Solid basic lambic.

gEUS (1460) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2015
bottle at Passchendaele Pub at Passendale. Pours dark red to purple, little pink head. Aroma is sweet cherry and lightly bubblegum, more cherry character than the Bacchus.... but then there’s the sweetness all over again; there is a little sour. Taste is artificial cherry. Categorising this as a fruit lambic is just wrong (yet they do it on theit own labels as well - long live the flaws in Belgian legislation).

fiulijn (16426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Dark blood color with pink head. A lot of cherry pit in the nose. Tart, very fruity, with a good body structure, and more sourness and astringency in the final.
Very good.

Ferris (7655) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle - Tart raspberry notes and fruity sweetness. Deep clear red with a thin beige head. Nice tartness, raspberry sweetness and a dry finish. Good balance.

benfergy (235) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - APR 12, 2015
The aroma has cherry and yeast, and is quite acidic. As I sip, I also get a hint of vinegar. The taste is pleasantly tart; there is almost no sweetness, however. Carbonation is average, and the body is medium. A very good beer; just don’t expect a sweet beer.
