freretoc (1106) - Besançon, - APR 12, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 37.5cl, couleur rouge et petite mousse blanche qui tombe vite une bière très sèche sans vraiment de goût de cerise ce qui est dommage, finalement très citronnée agréable en cas de fortes chaleurs sans plus.

Bottle shared by czar, thanks! Pours a ruby red with a white and low rim that leaves some lacing. Nose is of maraschino cherries, cake spices and you know it is going to be sweet. Taste is indeed really sweet, cloying, bursting with saccharine, cherries and bready notes. Only faintly tart, not nearly enough to save it from being cloying. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel juicy and almost syrupy. Overall I could have gone another year without sampling this but I’m glad it’s over now. It was "OK" but weak even for a sweetened fruit lambic, really.

pours dirty dark golden reddish with a diminishing off-white cap, minimal retention. strong maraschino cherries, foret-noire cake, shy lambic character, some wood, citrus peel, raspberries, candies, light acidity. average carbonation, light body, sweetish, woodsy and fruity-spicy finish. decent for what it is.

33cl bottle. 11/06/15. Clear, light mahogany colour; whispy light pink head reduced to a frothy ring and left some nice lace. Cherry aroma dominates with some acidity. Low to medium cherry sweetness and moderate sourness. Light to medium body, fizzy, medium tartness and a dry finish. Not quite to my sweet tooth’s taste but a fine example of a fruit lambic. I would probably proffer this one as a good example of the style.

What a weird taste. I would not buy it again. Bit its not bad. Just plain weird. The aftertaste is just too sweet there is nothing left of the beer here.

SkillsFactory (146) - ITALY - MAY 20, 2015
Color rubino, testa di schiuma rosa non molto persistente. Forte aroma di ciliegia che sovrasta pesantemente i caratteristici odori di una Lambic. Al palato sempre molto presente la ciliegia mista alle note acide proprie di questo tipo di birra. Sia al naso che al palato la ciliegia risulta "poco naturale", molto "sciropposa". Corpo leggero, ben carbonata.

rayaron (633) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle 250ml, 4%. Clear and light reddish with pinkish head. Mild aroma of cherry with notes of champagne. Flavor of gentle cherry liqueur, notes of champagne, light sweetness and sourness, a bit yeasty, dry finish. Lively carbonation, light-bodied.

Color is ruby red and hazy, with a nice pink head. Medium carbonation and a light to medium body. Aroma is cherries, syrup and coriander. Taste is cherries, syrup, sweet and overall artificial. Has also some tart and acidic evidences. Aftertaste is dry and with some sweetness.

SaintMatty (5855) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2015
Bottle - Red with a pinky white head. Cherry, almonds and a hint of Dr Pepper in the aroma. Fruity and sweet taste with notes of Dr Pepper and cherry dominating proceedings.
