3.85/5  rDev +13.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The beer poured into the chalice clear ruby garnet with just a lightly pinkish hue head which barely formed but did make an attempt to lace the glass.

The aroma was sweet with a strong cherry presence and a lightly tart acidic character in the background. The aroma also had a lightly earthy nature.

The flavor was tart and refreshing with a slight bit of sweetness that was by no means overdone and a tart and crisp character that was just a bit husky. The beer was not hardly sour at all and only had a mild tartness at best. The cherry flavor was very strong and worked well with what sour presence was notable.

The finish was even with a moderate cherry flavor into the aftertaste and just a very slight tartness. The body was medium light with a carbonation high enough to let the flavors prickle the palate. The beer did not have much complexity but was quite a refreshing beverage.

12 ounce can, purchased at grocery store in Brussels and brought back to the US to give it a whirl. 4% ABV on can.

3.84/5  rDev +12.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours dark ruby, fluffy one finger head. Sticky lacing later on.
Smells really nice, sweet cherries, fruit pit, candy sugar, spices, some low floral notes.
Quite sweet (not syrupy) and fruity, but without feeling artificial. Sweet and bitter cherries, forest berries, red apple peel, not too much lemon zest. Not as sour as the "Retro Kriek", lower lambic elements too. Still tart enough. Spicy, reminding somehow of almond/amaretto and cinnamon. Low bitterness, wheat in the aftertaste.
A bit soda fizzy, but it's crisp and refreshing, just sweet enough, without lingering unpleasantly in the aftertaste.
Pretty good beer actually, made me think of cherry cake. Not such an interesting "lambic" tho.
