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.

rondphoto (2543) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - FEB 9, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- born on 2011/07/05 - Hazy dark cherry amber with a beige head cover, light swirls of lace. Taste is tart cherry that shows just a hint of almond, moving to a slightly sour finish. Light, drinkable, but almost too sweet.

Theydon_Bois (11079) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle split at JF’s, cheers to James, 13/12/14. Clear cherry red with a decent crimson covering. Nose is cherry drops, perfumed notes, sweet red berries, sugar. Taste comprises sweet cherry licks, straw, perfume, faint woody tones, light grain, cherry bakewell. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. So so, too sweet but just about bearable sharing a small bottle twixt deux.

bottle, Bierzwerg. Red-golden with a red-hued white head. Sweet cherry aroma. Juicy cherry flavour dominates, pleasant yeasty sourness in the background.

Am Anfang leicht süßlich mit schönem Sauerkirscharoma. Im Abgang leicht bitter - meiner Frau hat es gut gefallen, meins eher nicht. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Svesse (6715) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2014
(Draught at Café Gollem, Amsterdam, 22 Aug 2014) Red colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity nose with cherries, bitter almond and red fruit. Fruity taste with notes of cherries, red fruit, bitter almond and a certain sweetness coming through. Medium body. Straightforward and fairly uncomplicated, but tasty with a fresh cherry character. Quite nice.

375mL bottle, pours a nearly opaque pinkish dark red with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out sugary sweet cherries, but not cloying. Flavour is around the same, with sweetened cherries, but not too sweet nor cloying. Not complex or anything, but it’s an easy drinking sugary fruit beer. Nice commercial lambic, as far as they go.
