COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For 6 months the flesh of the fresh sour cherries slowly digests in the Lambic. The intense flavour of cherries and light nuances of almond from the pits determine the flavour of this fruity delicacy.

Note: ABV from 4.5% to 4% at some point.

Pours pomegranite crimson w/ a shallow froth. Aromas of fresh, yeasty cherries. Light to medium nectar w/ ample carbonation. Fleshy cherries, spice, and bread. Theres a moderate tart component. The finish is long w/ tart cherry overtones.

Red colour, generous pink head. Aroma has lots of cherries, a bit dusty and earthy. Flavour is mostly cherry and raspberry, some sourness, but finishing very sweet.

BeerBiker (1413) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2007
[Sampled with Adenila in brothers hood and in La Roche.] Wonderful, I like it. The ladies swallowed it a lot in La Roche at the hotels lawn after the race. Like a normal kriek, but some almonds essens makes the taste too sugary.

Adenila (1558) - DENMARK - SEP 9, 2007
Lovely krik. Perfect deep red look with a nice pink head. The head didnt stay for long though. Aroma of cherrysauce mixed with white suger. Flavor wasnt as acidic as i like it, but still pretty decent and definetly refreshing.

Eructoblaster (3358) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2007
Bottle - 250ml. Hazy ruby body with low carbonation and a fading pink foamy head. One-dimension candylike cherry aroma and taste. It ends with a decent sweet/sour finish. This is refreshing and anjoyable, but it definitely lacks conformity with the Lambic style.

detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2007
On Draft. Not as good as the raspberry version I tried at the same time. Looks and smells like cherryade - and tastes like it too. A cloudy red body. Too much sugar in the flavour, not enough fruit sharpness. Some dryness in the middle - but not much! Short sweet finish.

1FastSTi (3344) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2007
Bottle acquired at John’s Grocery in Iowa. The beer pours to a hazy dark ruby/purple body with a frothy/creamy light pink head and airy lacing. The aroma is cherry cordials and bing cherries mixed with cherry juice. The flavor is sweet bing cherries and is lightly tart. Notes of light brown sugar and turbinado sugar. The palate is juicy and mouthwatering. Sweet and medium bodied. Not too shabby and significantly under-rated.
