Butelka, warka do 17.01.2021r. Barwa rubinowa, przejrzysta. Piana bardzo niska, to co się stworzyło zostawia ślady na ściance. W aromacie na pierwszym miejscu kwaśne wiśnie, młode owoce, po zamieszaniu wychodzi stajnia i drobna nuta słodowa. W smaku jest przede wszystkim słodke i kwaśne wiśnie, poza tym nuty słodowe i charakterystyczny dla lambików kwaśno-cierpki ’zadzior’ w finiszu, który bardzo miło kontruje słodycz i owocowość. Goryczka bardzo niska. Wysycenie średnie, piwo orzeźwiające, gładkie, niezalegające, bardzo pijalne. Naprawdę bardzo fajny, ’letni’, niezobowiązujący kriek. Na zdrowie!

2015 vintage. Deep dark purple ruby with cotton candy pink foamy head. Aroma is merlot with faint cherry. Tart, cherry is there but more like a sweet red wine. I remember the marriage parfait being similarly winelike. I prefer more tart kriek lambics, but this one is well done nevertheless.

For me, its a good beer to start with if you’re interested in this style. Sweet, smooth, you can drink few of them and dont even feel like drinking beer :)

PhilosophyGuy (635) - Łódź, POLAND - MAY 9, 2017
Dosyć jednowymiarowy lambik, ale nie oczekiwałem szczerze mówiąc dużo. Zarówno w smaku, jak i zapachu dominuje kompot wiśniowy. W smaku czuć dodatkowo nieźle zbalansowane słodycz z kwaśnością. Troszkę brak tu wyrazistości. Piwo ma barwę wiśnii i tworzy się na nim całkiem okazała piana, która jednak szybko znika. Ogólnie przyjemne - bez szału.

Looks decent, pours little to no head, aromas of raspberry, cherry, and similar fruits. Refreshing raste, nice palate, good level of sourness. Overall a pretty good lambic, very drinkable.

Aroma and taste of cherries, sweetness too dominating for my taste but decent. Lively carbo.

drjoeng (1230) - SINGAPORE - MAY 1, 2017
2015 Bottling 4%ABV. Lambic Poured out red. Nose has creamy fruity aroma, in short, smells like fresh cherry pie. Mouthfeel is juicy. Palate has solid pale malt with fresh biscuits and sweet dough. The palate is juicy. The hop finish is barely there and appears to my palate to be woody. No bitter aftertaste at all.

3.5
dunklermessias (176) - Lüneburg, GERMANY - APR 29, 2017
750 ml Bottle, Vintage 2014. Pours with a hazy, red copper color and a small pastel red head. The nose is sweet cherries, almonds, some nuts. taste is rather sweet, like dark cherries, fruit-in-rum, slightly malty and good carbonated. The finish is more dry and sour. Slighltly sweeter than others.

Aromat winny, trochę wiśniowy. Piana drobnopęcherzykowa, szybko opadająca. Piwo w kolorze ciemnego burgundu. Trochę rozwodnione, wiśniowe. Jak gazowane czerwone wino. Dosyć mocno nasycone,
