sleepylopes (318) - New York, USA - APR 15, 2008
light red and not much of a head. yeast and just a touch of fruit in the nose to compliment the lactic acid. sour and flavorfull this is an intresting lambic. the beer is funky and the natural yeast is the star.

DietPepsican (1586) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 8, 2008
Pours red with just a few bubbles. Aroma is cherry and sour grapes. Flavor is tart cherries and a good bit of funkiness to back it up. Finishes very tart. Fun to split a 375 but anything more would have been a bit too much.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Reddish pour with a light head. Aroma has a vinous, dark cherry essence. Flavor is basic cherry and funky sourness with a nice bite. Good as a dessert, but its no Lou Pepe.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2008
Pours a reddish colour with a small head. Aroma of acid cherries and lime, and a flavour of sour vinegarlike cherries and dry aronia. It is quite extreme and hard to finish.

Draft at the Cantilon brewery. Too sour and not sweet enough for my tastes. Pass.

emotv (353) - Izmir, TURKEY - MAR 22, 2008
I actullay do not like so mant fruit or lambic beers. But this is one of thebest sourness i have ever get frm a beer like this. Cloudy, red clour, with cherry taste on first. Well not so much head but very nice sourness afterwards. Nice beer.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2013 Bottle 2012 edition: Ruby red in color not much head. Nose of tart cherries and sawdust... Taste is a nice tart lambic... border line sour. Tart cherries, light sawdust. Simple but good... Medium body, good amount of carbonation. Overall: I intially I had this beer in 2008 and didnt really enjoy it.... I am glad my tastebuds have changed to appreciate this style.

mybestfriend (263) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2008
UPDATED: APR 22, 2008 37.5 cl 2007 bottle. Pours a red colour with a thin pink head. Cherry stones, almond and some funky sweaty horse. Flavour is very sour - like eating lemon. Some funky barnyard notes as well. The cherry flavour is very subtle - too subtle in my opinion.
