COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the result of blending black cherries lambic of different ages followed by a second fermentation in the bottle. Storage is similar like geuze. All bottles are champagne corked and can be reserved, in normal conditions, for more than thirty years. It is obvious that an amazing taste evolution takes place.

mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - MAR 15, 2005
Pale orangey red colour. Aroma has a strong lactic sourness. Great cherry flavour is well balanced bya near perfect level of sourness. I do enjoy my beers sour.

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2005
Bottle from 1998. Dirty brown, nice remaining head. Smooth as can be, taste is sour, but not agressively sour, qualitybrew, especially after 7 (or more?) years.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2005
375ml. bottle. Light brownish red color with a small off white head. Metallic, sour aroma with just a hint of cherries. Sweet initial flavor, turning sour quickly. Very dry finish which is helped by the abundant carbonation. Nice!

DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Heazy brown-red body with minimal head. Pie cherry and caramel malt aroma. Intense sweet cherry flavor with sugar cookie, brown sugar and the requisite strong acidic lemon/silage tartness. Id give the flavor a higher score but the sweetness and tartness seem too separated, not combining to form a unified flavor.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2007 Nice sour lambic. Poured cloudy redish with a thin head. I lke this beer quite well. The sourness explodes in your mouth. The cherry flavor is not as pronounced as in the Cantillion (my favorite kriek) but still quite nice.
