I’m usually not to fond of this kind of beer. But I really enjoyed drinking this one while on a trip in Amsterdam. Maybe the setting helped. Very good cherry taste.

250 ml can. Aroma is odd, smells like olive oil, with a touch of artifical cherry, Wow, this is sweet, sickeningly sweet, and very cloying. Kinda on the oily side. Tastes like cherry juice, and very very artifical.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle-Poured a cherry red color w/no head, & I mean RED! Looked like a glass of grenadine! Overwelming cherry flavor w/some fizz to it. Starts out w/a very sweet flavor, than turns to a very sour finish. Cherries, Cherries, &...Cherries. Not terrible, different, a change of pace, but too sweet & too one dementional for me. My first Lambic, hopefully I’ll fine some I enjoy more.

Dusty red in color with a wisp of head, but otherwise clear. Aromas are yeasty, with dominant cherry fruit and wine-like mustiness. Sweet and fruit-forward. Cherries occupy most of the palate. A bit sour on the finish. Fizzy and plenty long on the finish, too.

12.7 oz. bottle. Pours a deep red - almost looks like a claret, with a thin, fizzy pinkish head. Lively carbonation. Very nice aroma of cherries. Cherry is also by far the dominant flavor. Initially very sweet. After a couple of seconds sourness overtakes the sweetness. The sourness actually lingers for a while after the swallow. A fun beer I’d love to try in the summer on warm evening.

Nice dark red-brownish colour wth a short fizzy head. Aroma of sweet cherries indeed. Refreshing sweet flavour of cherries, bit wheaty, nice sour touch.

On tap at the Wellington Arms, Bedford. Dark red with a faintly rosy head. Looks a cracker. Attractive cherry stone aroma. Taste has some sourness and bitterness, but it’s a bit too sweet for me. A crowd-pleaser: nearly very good.

Okay, here’s a real treat. This stuff...served HOT...with an apple wedge in it! No shit, they come up with the craziest things in random bars 30 minutes outside of Tokyo. Reddish-amber, cherry Fanta looking head that breaks up quickly. It took me a while to figure out what I wrote down there, since this was beer #4 and the word "Fanta" doesn’t come up a lot in ratings. On an unrelated note, my bro has this friend from Philadelphia named Fanta that he was once afraid to introduce me to, for fear that I would say something stupid. Imagine that, my own bro thought that I was a social liability! Or maybe her name was Fresca. But I digress. For this beer, I was very interested based on the strong cherry-apple aroma with some cinnamon; the heat really brought out some mad aromas. But then the whole damn thing falls apart in the flavor into a mess of cough syruppy blah. And since it was so hot, it seemed like I had drank half the glass when I had barely put a dent in it.
