This beer is not what I expected but it got slammed from some other reviewers. It is like drinking cherry juice. It is not a big intensely sour Lambic like the Hanssens Oude Kriek. Not even close! This is closer to the Redbach "Cherry soda-beer" that Rodenbach makes. This is not quite that sweet. It does have a distinct sour lactic Lambic resemblance buried under all that sweetness but it was ramped up so my wife who like Lindemans, Liked this one as well.

Hope this is helpful.
Cheers!

2.78/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Bottle acquired from the MLCC and poured ~6C into a stemmed flute.

Pours a rich deep clear red with a pink head that laces nicely. Nose is dominated by cherries, in fact there is nothing else. Now for the rest of the review...

So yeah, this is a "lambic"? Where is the sourness or the tartness? Tastes of cherries, cherries and more cherries with a sweetness that just isn't normal for a real lambic. This is a cherry also-cooler. Passed off to my wife. She enjoyed it.

Tasted a bit of it 45 minutes later (she's a real slow drinker) and some of the background lambic notes were coming out from the woodwork, but were still quite muted. A light tartness was evident too, which had me slightly increase the T,M &O scores...
