gEUS (1395) - 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 (16186) - 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 (7058) - 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.

Icedwarf (614) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2015
Donkerrod bier met schuim. Smaak is zuur en droog met fruit, kersen, bosbessen en framboos. Smaak blijft lang hangen.

benfergy (232) - 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.

vadie (969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2015
Rouge avec un petit col rose. L’arôme des cerises aigre et du levure sauvage. En bouche c’est aigre avec les cerises. C’est aussi sucré au début avec une finale fruité un peu sec. Le goût n’est pas trop complex, mais la palate est très bien fait (fruité puis sec avec plein du corps).

northropfrye (2518) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Dark red body. Sour, a touch of biscuit element. Cherries of course. Really quite a nice fruit lambic. On tap at JL Beers Grand Forks.

erickok (4152) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 29, 2015
Dark red body, stable head. Blackberries, cherry compote, some sugar. Quite acidic, fruity, bit sharp. Good mouth filling carbonation, but not very complex. Drinks okay. (375ml bottle from Saveur Bière)
