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.

250 ml bottle. Ruby red pour with a nice pink head. Aroma was a wonderful cherry pie filling. The flavor was a bit too sweet however. Lots of cherry and not much else. I was expecting a bit of tartness, but it really didn’t come through. Still tasty as a desert beer.

BrockLanders (771) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2006
Bottled. Dark translucent red pour....fluffy pink head. Sweetish fruity, maybe cherry, aroma. Big sour twany on first sip, then some sugary sweet cherry syrup flavor. A little thin bodied...moderately carbonated. Finishes pretty tart...almost nasty sour. Not one of my favorites.

EithCubes (4705) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2006
Bottled. Deep, ruby red pour with a respectable pink head. Smells of cherry candy. Sweer and sour, too much of each with seemingly no attempt at balance. I find this less artificial than their "premium," but not entirely free of syrupy and medicinal demons. Really, way too much sweetener, it affects detrimentally the palate as well as the taste, and the whole thing falls apart.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2006
Deep dark red color, medium pink head. Cherry, bubble gum and sourness in aroma. Thin to medium bodied. Sweet start in flavor, ends with mildly sour, dry and bubble gum in aftertaste. Easy to drink.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2005
Dark pink-redish colour, average pink head. Sweet-sour aroma, little malty. Smouth palate, full, finish is again sour-sweet, where the sweetness is not overwhelming; rather good one.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2010 First rating friday, december 09, 2005: 4/3/5/2/8 total 2.2. A pinkish appearances with a very artificial aroma and taste. Very sweet-watery flavour. (Bottle 25cl) Re-rate: Overwhelming sweet candy-like cherrie aroma. Watery sweet taste, no body and a nnot so good aftertaste. (Bottle Vieux Bruxelles 25cl 4 ABV)

Dorqui (2083) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 28, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 Bottled. Compact and enough creamy head, not much long-lasting one. Lightly hazy red color, good fizz. Pleasant even if slightly uncertain scent. Notes of sour black cherry, cherry and must. Lightly acidulous. Winy and not too much prickly taste, tendency to extinguish itself on the end. Harmonious, sweet, and much pleasant body. Medium final.

pivnizub (8737) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2005
Bottle: Reddish to brown coloured with a rose-coloured fluffy foam; cherries, almonds, some malts in the aroma, but shoe-polish also, kind of perfumed, artificial; cloying fruity taste; artificial ("chemical") finish, only very shy tart fruitiness in the aftertaste. Liquid bubble-gum, pretty sweet, pretty repulsive..........

JonMoore (1841) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Bottle. Dark red colour with a medium pink head. Sort of an artificial cherry aroma. Very sweet taste of cherries with some cough syrup in there. Not offensive, but I wont bother again.
