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.

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 (3342) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2007
Bottle acquired at Johnís 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.

altonbrownd (3680) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2007
Bottle at Cafe Vertigo with Dan and Vanessa. Cherry-red colour, pink head. Deep, strong cherry aroma. Fruity taste with cherry, framboise and citrus flavors. Quite carbonated, mild mouthfeel. Syrupy finish.

Iím 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.

robinvboyer (3378) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2007
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.

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - FEB 22, 2007
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 Iíll fine some I enjoy more.

jefcon (1459) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2007
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.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2007
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 Iíd love to try in the summer on warm evening.

Almond aroma. Dark red. Slightly pink head. Cherry, sour. High carb. Begins sweet. Nice glass.
