COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For 6 months the flesh of the fresh sour cherries slowly digests in the Lambic. The intense flavour of cherries and light nuances of almond from the pits determine the flavour of this fruity delicacy.

Note: ABV from 4.5% to 4% at some point.

Nurmis (523) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours ruby without head. Aroma of cherries, not as and strong and crisp than some other cherry lambics. Medium to heavy sweetness. Still good.

Butelka 0,25l, a z niej przyjemny aromat wiśniowy, trochę siana i konia. W smaku. Dość obfita, ładnie oblepiająca szkło piana. Klarowna czerwień. Ze szkła rwnież przyjemny aromat. Delikatna kwaśność w smaku, trochę wiśni, trochę stajni. Nawet przyjemne.

Angenehmes Kirscharoma, Geschmack aber etwas s, weitgehend ohne biertypische Hopfen- oder Malznoten, es berwiegt eine fassbrausenartige Fruchtse

Taste and smell both have too much cherries. Tastes more like cherry juice than beer.

I rate beers I think significantly better than average, simple as that. I am not into showing off through prolix bloviating. My honest appraisals will offset those who intentionally downgrade excellent beers attempting to appear a snob. . :)

Kolor rubinowy, troch? nawet brunatny, nieco m?tny. Piana lekko r?owa, znikoma i bardzo krtkotrwa?a. Aromat: s?odki kompot z wi?ni, czu? sporo s?odyczy i nieznaczne akcenty winne. Smak: wi?cej charakteru winnego, jest bardziej wytrawny i s?odki kompot z wi?ni, plus lekka kwa?no??. Goryczka lekka, pestkowa, wysycenie wysokie

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2016
Pours a deep red with aromas of sour, light cherries. The body was medium and was sour, tart. Cherries seeped through enough and it was smoothe and easy.

minutemat (4920) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2016
Bottle @ Estaminet de la Longue Croix, Hondeghem, Belgium. Pours vivid reddish pink, small bubbly pinkish white head. Aroma is artificial cherries. Taste continues with a chemical sweetness and no real tartness expected of a lambic. Very light.
