After unwrapping like a Christmas present, this beer pours an orange caramel body with hints of rose color along with a crisp pink foam head.
The smell is real cherries with a subtle nuttiness. Somewhat like a seeded dry bread and pie.
Sweetness and tinges of cherry lambic power the taste. Banana esters come through with bites of tart, crunchy apples like Ginger Golds or Honey Crisps. Very nice and interesting.
Quite crisp and dry like a french cherry cidré. The beer presents a good mellow flavor and an easy, refreshing drink.

Thanks to Phelps, from the Blind BIF III. reviewed blind.

375ml into Bells tulip. Corked and caged. Synthetic cork.

A- Pink and ruby on the pour. Hmm. Interesting color. A bit hazy, some orange highlights. Big white fluffy head that has some sticky frosty lacing on the glass. Actually, the head is slightly pink too.

S- Fruity, berries. Cherries? Cherries.

T- Tart fruit, this is for sure a cherry beer. Trying to identify the base... not a lambic, not sour, just tart. A bit of an earthy taste and some medicinal notes come out too..

M- Good tartness, light enough body, although this is prob. 6-7%. Good carbonation. Nice finish.

D- Moderately high. Very tasty stuff, great fruit presence. If you like cherries, check this one out.

375ml bottle. Timmermans Flute glass. Enjoyed on jul´12 -funny no-planned tasting session in good company at the Freiburg- (Thanks to Robert -the best nose on this side of the bar- & Manolo –deluxe barman). Pours bright reddish amber, cherry-like to the light. Chill haze. White crown. Nice spots & fairly good retention. Aromas of rice, lactis, vanilla, berries & green almond. Funny sweet maltiness & raspberry hues. Low hoppiness. Gentle & refreshing sensation. Light body. Moderate to high carbonation. Watery but flavorful texture. Undelying warming alcohol masked by fruitness in the middle. Mildy toasted malty & sweet finish. Well balanced beer.

Pours a pinkish orange. Tons of frothy head. Looks really interesting. Very pinkish.
Smells sour and sweet on the nose. Some nice almond as well on the nose. Te cherry is fairly apparent. The taste is sweet and a bit tart. Like sweet cherry pie. And to my surprise i can taste almond on the tongue pretty prominently. Very unique interesting beer. Highly carbonated and very drinkable. I would Definitely have this again

A-Wow this pours like a desert beer with a murky blood orange reddish hue which leaves behind a two finger head that slowly dissapates and leaves smoggy islands everywhere and heaps of clingy lacing.

S-Creamy vanilla,nuts,sour cherries and sweaty socks.

T-Sour cherries,vanilla,barnyard funk,a nutty creaminess and finished with a touch of raasperries and sour yoghurt.

M-Creamy nearly full bodied and sour.

O-For me this is a nice desert beer and the one would be enough definately not someting you could drink all night cheers.
