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.

Hamirubi (185) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 17, 2015
25cl bottle. Very, very sweet cherry beer. A thin pink foam on a unnatural red fruit beer with loads of sugar. This is a lemonade beer for me.

rondphoto (2617) - 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 (11566) - 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.
