A: Hazy and ruby red coloured with a finger’s worth of head that forms a ring.
S: Maraschino cherries, balsamic, yeast, and cloves. Huge cherry aroma that comes across naturally with a nice balsamic vinegar kick.
T: Cherries, field berries, apples, and a subtle balsamic quality. This is very easy drinking and smooth with not an overly sweet cherry flavour at all. This does seem to be lacking a flavour or two.
M: Thinner bodied with a lower carbonation, but almost too thin and flat for the style. Crisp and dry.
D: This is good and a very natural tasting example of the style but lacks in mouthfeel and doesn't seem to be 100% complete in the taste.

It's not a beer actually. A pretty sour and very sweet. Its better to drink it at room temperature or a little lower, you will feel nothing if it is over chilled.
Colour is very nice, dark red.
Smell and taste like a beer with cherry jam.
Wife like it. Girly stuff..

It certainly do not taste like a regular beer, but there are others beers that doesn’t do that as well. A very nice red color appears as you pour the beer into the glass.
The beer tastes well and is refreshing. But it’s more like soda, juice or cider than a beer.
Very sweet and sugary in the taste.

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.
