Tap at Cap Hop. Pours sort of cherry color with a transient near-white head. Aroma is tart cherry. Med body. Flavor is tart cherry. Really tart, but there’s some fruit sugar or something moderating it a little bit. Mouth smacking. Much better than many so-called krieks. Delicious. Recommended. hgray14 (11) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 11, 2017
I am not normally a fan of sour beers, but this one, according to the label, is a "Spontaneously Fermented Ale Blended with Fresh Cherry Juice" and is excellent. It is a bit reminiscent of vinegar at first, but then I started to taste the tart cherries and really liked it. I would definitely buy this again. marcus (10669) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 11, 2017

Bought one to sample from the local liquor store, a good Lambic once in a while makes for a good switchup from my normal beer choices. Beer has a sour scent of cherries, not overpowering but is definite. Taste is not very sweet, and is very much sour cherries, no other tastes come out. Very well balanced but very tart, with minimal carbonation. Finishes dry with a cherry aftertaste.
The label says that it is made with cherry juice, but not a mention of fresh cherries-- either way it is not the best Lambic beer I have had, nor is it a great example of a sour ale either. If you like Kriek Lambic to be more sour, give this a try.

Bottle->tulip. Dark red with small ecru head. A: sour, slightly rotten cherries, dark fruit, yeast. T: a tart but artificial cherry taste permeates; no natural funk here, just an almost medicinal cherry presence.

Ruby with small pink head. Slightly sour fruity aroma with cherry notes. Medium sour and enough sweet cherry taste with touch of bitterness on the background. jsporrer (1116) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2017
Pours a cranberry reddish brown with an off white ring. Very faint aroma of tart fruit. Nice lightly tart sour cherry taste. Flavors don't linger for long. Leaves just a tingle on the tongue but not much lasting aftertaste. Fairly enjoyable but nothing special. Beer5000 (6734) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2017
Bottle from Gulating Brennåsen. Clear, deep red body with a big, creamy pale pink head. Aroma is cherry souse with hint of almond and some acidity. Flavor is basically sweet and sour cherry with hint of almond as in aroma. Medium body and cherry aftertaste. It’s a bit strange in flavor as it has some kind of balance between the sweet and slightly artificial at one side and woody acidic authentic flavor at the other side, still it doesn't feel like balanced at all. It’s just sweet and sour – actually too sweet by the end of the bottle. remerts2 (42) - LATVIA - SEP 11, 2017
Alus ļoti garšo pēc ķiršu sulas. Bet spontānā fermentācija, vairāk nekā gadu mucā gatavināts... - potenciālie garšas ieguvumi ir brutāli "nodzēsti" ar ķiršu sulu. Garšo pēc limonādes, sorry. HonusWagner (2223) - Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2017
Aroma is sweet, artificial cherry with a slightly "brew day" aroma, while the taste is tart cherry and little else. It’s not horrible, but it’s not good either.
