75cl Bottle at home. I had been really looking forward to this beer for some time as im a huge fan of cherry beers. The pour was very deep red and produced a 1cm head that did not hang around. The aroma was upfront cherry and almond with a strong medicinal quality. As the aroma had hinted to me the taste was a huge let down. Way too sweet and medicinal. This is even sweeter than a Liefmans Kriek! It lacks complexity and does not have you wanting another sip due to its cloying oily palate. I was really dissapointed by this and im not quite sure how they managed to produce a false cherry flavour from real cherrys.... dand645 (103) - Bayonne, New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2009
first rating...tons of cherry in the nose and flavor. Perfect amount of sour and sweet wheatbeerboy (103) - Addison, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Very interesting brew. This is my first time sampling a fuit beer. Tastes like a lambic beer, wine & cherry soda all rolled into one. Perfect blend of sweet & tartness with a semi-dry finish on the palate. This brew has a wonderful cherry aroma and is very "rich" tasting. I wouldn’t want to drink this all of the time because it’s a little too heavy for me, but other than that this is an excellent and very unique tasting beer. segfault (103) - Centennial, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2005
This delightful beer arrived in a 750ml bottle, and the pour has a brownish-red pour with a small brownish head. It is hazy, and a bit carbonated, although the head doesn’t stay long. Aroma is beautiful cherries, malt, yeast, and tartness. In the mouth it delivers cherries, malt, nutty notes, perhaps a hint of woody oak, a slight, balanced tartness and honey. This is a fabulous beer. Glad I had the chance to sample it with alaskanwarren, thanks Hezron!

I’ve had this beer a million times before but never taken the time to rate it.
Deep red body with a small white head. The body is very opaque. The aroma is outstanding. Sour cherries blast out of the glass. The flavor on this beer is crazy good. Good sour cherry flavor with a bit of carbonation which seems to make the flavor pop. Ends on a pretty sweet note. The body is a bit heavy for the flavor but it’s pretty light overall. This is a great beer. If I ever get married, I’ll use this in place of champagne for the toast.

So good cherry aroma, Very raisin malts and slight roasted malts that adds so much to the multi dimensional. Great OAK. Slight wine and very tart. ANOTHER MUST!!! Prolitariat777 (102) - St george, Utah, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Ruby garnet color. Clear and white head. Nice carbonation. Wonderful cherry aroma and sour tart flavor with cherries and wine like favors. Great balance as well. Rutzicka (102) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 21, 2001
The colour is a light and quite dirty brown, fine head. It has a fantastic almond and cherry aroma. Well-balanced, coffee, cherry and burnt almond flavor. Good acidity. Long, well-balanced aftertaste. JohnMan (102) - Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2011
A wonderful fruit lambic. This beer has a very nice balance of tartness from the cherry to the sweetness. I do get a very slight bitterness, as if it came from that tart quality of the cherry, but still a very fine beer. boomer0813 (100) - denton, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Bottle thanks to thirdeye11. It had a dark red cherry color w/ very little head. Aroma was of cinnamon, black cherry, and grenadine. Flavor was tart with black cherry, grenadine, and cinnamon. Not a fan of this beer!
