At WE of Spontaneous Fermentation. Deep hazy burgundy with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of cherry jam, light sweetness, leafy notes, wooden notes and light tartness. Taste is slightly sweet and lactic with cherries, leafy notes, wood and light funk. Medium body. Low carbonation (almost flat). Slightly acrid finish. Very good! There’s sweetness from the cherries, but it’s not artificial at all. Quite tasty. JulienHuxley (5847) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014

Spontanious weekend 07. Notes say: Cherry lambic funk, tart. Hints of sourness and rasberry is quite in here too. Quite the winner. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2007

weekend of Spontaaneous fermentation. Good stuff, some meaty bloody characters, mixed with a nice sour cherry flavour. Some fleshy cherry notes, but nice sour and dry. Quite good balance. Surprisingly good.
@WSF. Opaque burgundy or reddish-brown. Interesting malty aroma, smells almost like a Flemish sour. Lots of grain/malt and husk in the aroma. Sikly low carbonation and soft palate. Nice lactic touch is lip-puckering, tart, and yogurty. Acidic but nice. One of the more pungent, sharp ones but I like it. AdamChandler (5100) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 4, 2012

Very similar to the Timmermans kriekenlambik. That one was a bit more refreshing in profile, but they were eerily alike.
(Draught @ 22nd WoSF, Opstal 2013. Thanks for sharing, Uli! Part of Uli’s blind tasting of fruit lambics. 8 out of 10, not bad my friend, not bad at all!)
Tap @ Bazi Bierbrasserie... Poured deep reddish with a thick, off-white head that had a mild pinkish tint to it. Dry, decent carbonation, grenadine flavors with cherry skins, candied malt, loads of sweetness and a tart yeast character. Straight forward, not overly complex but still lovely drinking. Very soda pop in character. FlacoAlto (4197) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Sampled July 2010 at De Heeren van Liedekercke
This beer arrives from the tap with a dark purple, deep red color. The beer is flat, but there is a touch of a ring head around the edges of my glass. Fruity smelling, though I wouldn’t necessarily describe it as expressively of cherries; this smells more berry like, or perhaps sort of like red wine. When I come back to the nose after a bit I get a floral, ripe cherry note that is now much more noticeable. The cherry derived notes are definitely the dominant character in the nose, but there is also a note of popcorn some how, or perhaps it is a note reminiscent of sweet corn.
The beer is dry tasting and tart with a lactic and cherry sourness to it. Behind this is a note of sweet baby vomit. My second sip has a berry-like, red wine character being noticeable in the flavor. This is quite tannic, though it is not overly astringent. This is not very complexly flavor and more vaguely fruity with some faded cherry flavors. This would be exceedingly light and quaffable if not for the tannic, cherry skin finish.
