This one was somewhat of a dissapointment. Poured into a liefmans' chalice it was bright red with a healthy head that didn't disappear. The aroma had some of the normal lambic funk, with hints of grass and crushed cherries. The flavor was simply thin. There was very little of the sourness that makes this style. There was strong hints of grass and of course cherry. One was enough.

Poured from the tap at Stagione's in Shanghai China, A welcome surprise. Poured into a 500mL imperial pint.
A: Pure deep red color, perfectly clear. Head is offwhite, foamy, and has ok retention.
S: Cherry candy. Overwhelmingly sweet like smelling a candy apple.
T: Not as strong as the smell suggests. Good cherry pie profile. Very sweet but with some more balancing malt. Tart and sugary. Just OK.
Overall: Not as subtle as many other fruit beers/lambics. This is very in your face as a fruit beer. No typical beer characteristics aside from a side malt note. OK but probably won't want again.
Serving type: on-tap
