Bottle. Pours a strawberry red with a thin white head. Strong aroma of vinegar and wild berry. Taste is tart and fruity. Bit of a strawberry and kefir taste. Very potent flavors, tartness stings the tongue a bit. Incredibly complex offering. I like.

750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy reddish color with no head. The aroma is tart cherries and perhaps a hint of citrus. The flavor is more tart cherries and general sout character. This was decent, but not one of my favorites.

Pours bright red with very little white head. Aromas of tart cherries, with a bit a a yogurt character in the flavor. Medium body with high carbonation. Dry tart finish. One of my favorite lambics.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2012 2007 Bottle bought at Sams in Chicago. I learned something from this beer, that only about 1/10 people are able to drink this type of beer, and drinking a 750 yourself is not easy. Pours a clear cherry red color with no head. The aroma is pure sourness. The taste was very acidic, almost a burning mouthfeel. After a while the cherries come through quite nice, some dryness in the finish. A very sour beer. Ra-rate: obviously now my palate is more accustomed to the sourness. Very tart though. Woody. Tasty.

On tap at Ma Che Siete Venuti a F in Rome on 7/6. Pours clear pinkish read with minimal head. Strong aroma of tart cherries. Flavor is very similar. Very sour, but extremely well done.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2011 A fairly assertive beer. Pours cheery red with a little head. Aroma of tart cherries and background funk. The flavour is also sour, real cherries, very dry.

Bottled sample. Clear red in colour with somewhat spritzy carbonation. Aromas of funk. lemon, and mild cherry. Loads more sour citrus, funk, and wood, along with more mild cherry. Beautiful tart and dry finish. Not even a hint of residual sweetness. Great stuff!
