KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a murky dark cranberry red with a very small (almost non-existent) light pink fizzy head that was fully diminishing in just a few seconds and had no lacing to speak of. The aroma was all about the cherries with a mild caramel malt and a sweet yeast and had a hint of candi-sugar and a slight sour odor. The taste was abundantly sweet and a tad acidic with a very big cherry presence throughout, with the finish having a hint of candi-sugar and a nice mellow tartness towards the end. The flavor hung on for a decent duration with the sweet-tart cherry taste fading ever so slowly. Mouthfeel was just a tiny bit beyond light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a soft mellow carbonation. Overall a nice fruity tart Lambic that was extremely drinkable, reminds me a little of a Sour Cherry Jolly Rancher...

[2012] Przyjemny winny, owocowy, aromat z lekko wyczuwalną stajnią. Kwaśność umiarkowana, wiśniowa. Piwo dosyć słodkie z delikatnie cierpkim finiszem.

Tognetta (822) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 23, 2017
(2012 edition) Avermelhada rubi, mdia turbidez, espuma rosada de tima formao e persistncia. Aroma carregado de cereja, framboesa, mdio dulor e leve acidez. Paladar de leve dulor e acidez, miraculosamente transparece o lpulo com uma harmonia difcil de encontrar. Corpo leve, mdia/alta carbonatao. Final levemente seco, frutas vermelhas de mdia persistncia, muito bem equilibrada. Acredito que esses 4 anos deixaram ela no ponto exato !

Listigovers (1056) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2016
Reddish brown beer with a pink head. Funky and sweet smell. Not too carbonated and a slight cherry sweetness. Wildness is subdued and easy to drink, quite juicy, good.

MelvinKalksma (1297) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, cherry and tart.

Appearance:
Hazy/turbid red/purple beer with a medium pink head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts and cherry; ends slightly dry and sour with tart.

Overall:
This beer is intense and balanced, but lacks complexity. Rather sweet cherry flavour and just a slight trace of tart. Tasteful and drinkable and manages to never get too sweet for its own good.

Grumpelmies (164) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2016
Draft @ Metafoor, Leuven. Pale red with almost no head. Aroma and taste of cherries. Sweet and sour. Refreshing but too sweet for my tastes. Low carbonation. I dont really care for these kind of beers but I guess its good for what it is.
