This I beleive to be the best sweet cherry lambic on the market. Brewed in Lambeek, this pours a cloudy cherry red with good head. The nose reeks of cherries, and leads you to beleive it will be harshly sour like cantillon kriek..The taste is shockingly smooth. Those of you looking for the sour face puckering taste of a geuze or cantillon type brew, do not buy this. This is full of cherry flavor and goes down like fruit juice. just the right amount of carbonation helps. sharp cherry flavor in the finish. mouthfeel is perfect, could drink this for a week straight. I wouldn't recommend doing that though, as It would probably cause on wicked hangover from the sugar. That would be the fructose that sticks to your lips. Great brew. Usually I only enjoy framboise or cassis lambics, when they are sweet like this (and should really be classified as fruit beers) but this is the exception. The only disadvantage is the outrageous price for a little corked bottle. worth the buy, but only for a special occasion.

Bottle from Harvest Market
Pours a deep reddish purple color with a small bubbly pink tinged head that dissipates slowly. Aromas of sweet and tart cherries dominate the aroma. Hints of tart lemon, balsamic, brown sugar, and earth round out the nose. The flavor is quite a bit sweeter than I was anticipating. Dark sugary sweet with plenty of tart and sweet cherry flavor but seriously lacking in much lactic tartness to offset the sweetness. Hints of almond flavor and a bit of earthiness round out the flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Super easy to drink, more tart than a Lindemans but less than I was expecting.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Cherry red and filtered, this beer appears to have no carbonation. It has a finger of bright pink head with a slight brown tinge.

S: Lambic lactic macaroni quality, dusty oak and old wood quality, totally reminds me of the atmosphere in Cantillon. Some cherry quality.

T: Cherry sweet and strawberry jam. Sour puckering balance, light macaroni, some acidic like a tart unripe fruit.

M: Medium body, lots of light foamy carbonation.

O: Not a bad lambic, certainly not my favourite as I lean towards the unsweetened verson. Love the scent, taste is okay and mouthfeel not bad.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

From notes

Appearance: It has a nice amber/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of cherries, some tart raspberries and faint bready notes.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has dominant cherry notes, a light tartness and faint yeast esters.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas although it's not quite what I expected from a Lambic.
