Pours ruby red with a thin pinkish head. Smells of barnyard, cherries, raspberries, some oak, sweet sugar. Tastes of tarte cherries, wood, sugar, some breadiness. Strange but good. Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2009 (Bottle at 3 fonteinen, Beersel) Pours blood red with orange hints. The head is firm and light pink. Aroma is sour, salty with acid notes. Deep cherry tones. Wood, rubber tyre, stable and some chlorine are also present. The the flavour is sour, a bit grapy. Good, lively carbonation. Acid and minerals. Fresh broken wood. Dryish and lovely. Second try: (Bottle) pours deep blood red with a light pink head. The aroma is ripe cherries juice, barnyard/horse blanket brett, mouldy basement and citrus peels. Undertones of cinnamon, almond and vanilla. The flavour is light sweet, light bitter and medium acidic with tones of ripe cherries, funky brett, citrus, cinnamon almond and mould. The mouthfeel is juicy and tart with a light carbonation. Citric and tannic aftertaste. Medium bodied. puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2006
03-2005 bottle. Pours a brilliant, glistening ruby that is as beautiful as a liquid could be. Aroma is funky, strong, and unrestrained, with a subtle hint of cherries, with white chocolate, fresh dough, and sour apple coming through. A bit harsh on the palate -- my only real criticism of the beer -- though still luscious and rich in the mouth. The cherry comes through a lot more here, though isnt quite as prevalent as I hoped. It’s mostly been bittered and dried out, and doesn’t have the gentle, subtle touch of sweetness (from the cherries) that Lou Pepe Kriek had. Still, a wonderful beer.

Bottled in March 2005. Poured a deeper red capped by a short pink head. The aroma was chock full of wild, half-dried cherries, dusty barnyard funk, and well-rounded oak accents. The flavor shined with un-sweetened cherry tartness, funky must, and bunches of oak. Tart on the palate, but not overbearing... sour cherry highlights... dry refreshing finish. This was a most excellent brew! stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2008 Bottle sampled with Beerded_one pours deep red with a two finger thick fizzy pink head. Aroma of fermented fruit, alcohol, sourness. The flavor is smooth, slightly bitter, fruit, carbonated, best Lambic i have tried to date, not a style i like although.

Cloudy plum colored with a fluffy pink head. Cool aroma - musty, oaky, cherry, plus some funky wine and barnyard notes. First sip is winey and oaky, and sour, too. Slight hint of bitterness, a touch of crackers, pepper. The cherry flavor is there, but subdued. As it warms, a dry red wine character emerges. Really good, I could’ve drank this all night. bottled 3/01/05 Thanks, Santa! sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Bottle: Red pour with a small pink head. Aroma of sour cherries, some sweetness, and some floral notes. Flavor, sour, tart cherries, a little bitterness. Had a great dry finish. I can never really pick apart a good lambic, the sourness is usually all I’ll really get, but man do I like them. blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a cute pinkish-red with a small diminishing white-pinkish head. Very nice tart cherry aroma. Flavour of mild sour cherries along with some sweet malt and yeast -- complex and very flavourful, never cloying or overly sweet. Very nice body, dry finish. Great stuff, a top-notch Lambic!

Deep red body with a small pink head, good lacing. Aroma is leather, cherry, and tartness. Flavor has these notes but has a more pronounced cherry flavor. Fairly dry finish. Nothing extreme here other than the price. Solid and well made. Kinda fun to have this next to Sam Adams Cherry Wheat LOL. One looks like cherry soda, the other tastes like it. anders37 (26625) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2006
Bottle. Pours a lovely reddish colour with a pinkish head. Acidic barnyard aroma with lots of cherry. Also hints of cherry pits in the aroma. Has a sweet malty flavor with lots of cherry and cherry pits. Nutty hints in the flavor aswell. Nutty cherry aftertaste. A lovely one.
