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.

0,25l as Kriek Vieux Bruxelles, nice cherry aroma, dark red colour, with light white head, lightly bitter, lightly bitter, medium sweetness, no sourness at all, light body, slick feel, average carbonation, Im not much into Krieks but i think an average one, would appreciate bit souness and less sweetness

Fules (640) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 20, 2016
Gyorsan eltűnő kevéske hab, gyönyörű rubintpiros szín. Illata mint a préselt meggyléé, egy hangyányi sörös vonással. Fenomenális. Fanyar, savanykás, édeskés meggylé, a háttérben lambicos érzettel, kiegyensúlyozva a komló, és a fahordó keserűjével. Igazi nyári szomjoltó üdítő. Testes sör.

Nurmis (294) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours ruby without head. Aroma of cherries, not as and strong and crisp than some other cherry lambics. Medium to heavy sweetness. Still good.

popiela (475) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Butelka 0,25l, a z niej przyjemny aromat wiśniowy, trochę siana i konia. W smaku. Dość obfita, ładnie oblepiająca szkło piana. Klarowna czerwień. Ze szkła również przyjemny aromat. Delikatna kwaśność w smaku, trochę wiśni, trochę stajni. Nawet przyjemne.

fst0912 (34) - GERMANY - JUN 12, 2016
Angenehmes Kirscharoma, Geschmack aber etwas süß, weitgehend ohne biertypische Hopfen- oder Malznoten, es überwiegt eine fassbrausenartige Fruchtsüße

Taste and smell both have too much cherries. Tastes more like cherry juice than beer.

I rate beers I think significantly better than average, simple as that. I am not into showing off through prolix bloviating. My honest appraisals will offset those who intentionally downgrade excellent beers attempting to appear a snob. . :)

Keg @ Bridge Bier Huis, Burnley. Deep red with a head. Has a sweetened cherry flavour that lingers, with a more pronounced nose.

Kolor rubinowy, troch? nawet brunatny, nieco m?tny. Piana lekko ró?owa, znikoma i bardzo krótkotrwa?a. Aromat: s?odki kompot z wi?ni, czu? sporo s?odyczy i nieznaczne akcenty winne. Smak: wi?cej charakteru winnego, jest bardziej wytrawny i s?odki kompot z wi?ni, plus lekka kwa?no??. Goryczka lekka, pestkowa, wysycenie wysokie

oldrtybastrd (4951) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2016
Pours a deep red with aromas of sour, light cherries. The body was medium and was sour, tart. Cherries seeped through enough and it was smoothe and easy.

minutemat (4018) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2016
Bottle @ Estaminet de la Longue Croix, Hondeghem, Belgium. Pours vivid reddish pink, small bubbly pinkish white head. Aroma is artificial cherries. Taste continues with a chemical sweetness and no real tartness expected of a lambic. Very light.
