Dark cherry in colour, light pinkish coloured head, some light patchy lacing. The aroma is acidic, excellent cherry tartness, good sweetness for a Cantillon, woody. The flavour is actually a bit more mild than your typical Cantillon fruit lambic but thats not to say the the sourness isnt there, lots of acidic cherry burst, quite tart. Sour mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes oaky, lots of cherries, acidic, tart and dry. Amazing stuff, a step up from their regular Kriek for sure. One of the better Cantillons.

750ml bottle from the <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/new-york target=blank>Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York.

Red delicious sour cherry and honey. Mouthwatering: just the smell of it. Makes saliva glands active. Plenty of fruit. Dry bubbly and sour/ Sour in finish. Fruity waterfall of mild yet prominent cherries. Yummy, but not the best yummy ever. Still awesome!

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JUL 20, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2014 750 ml bottle. A hazy deep red beer, with a very large, fizzy, mostly dinminishing pink head. The aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately yeasty (barnyard, leather, cheese), with a strong note of cherry, other notes of wood, hint of vinegar. The flavor is moderately sweet, heavily acidic. Medium body, watery texture, sift/lively carbonation, pretty long finish with very light bitterness. Brilliant and fruity Lambic, only mildly vinegary and astringent

750ml bottle. First off, this beer looks amazing! Bright, full deep red, with a small pink head that doesnt last teribly long. Aroma is a wonderful lambic funk, with great cherries in there with that good old wet hay/barnyard lambic smell. Flavour is all cherry, very refreshing. Very nice and tart, and sour, but not over powering like some lambics, a great balance between the both, just a wonderful beer!

Bottle sampled. Pours red with a small pink head. Aroma of fermented cherries and sweetness. The flavor is sweet upfront, fermented tart cherries, and slight oak. Good body, good brew.
