375ml bottle poured into a Piraat Belgium tulip glass

A: 1 finger pale pink head with low retention. The beer itself is more of a dark purple/red color.

N: Plenty of cherry and some funk from spontaneous fermentation and 2 years of aging in oak vats. It really has the Luden's cough drop thing going on, but not a lot of complexity.

T: Confirms nose with some sweetness to it and a creamy mouthfeel.

O: It's an easy one to enjoy when you're in the mood for a lambic.

Hazy ruby color with a pink head with low retention.
Sweet predominant aroma of cherries and tart.
Sweet taste of cherries, grapes, a mild sourness and musk.
Medium body with medium carbonation, a bit effervescent.
Tasted to me like a cherry Halls, not bad at all, but still sweet and not that complex.

s - cherry cough drops.
t - grape and cherry with a slight tartness but this was overly sweet like cough syrup.
m - slick and medium.
o - more of a fruit beer than a lambic. homeless man's version of new glarus wisconsin belgian red.

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a reddish color and a slightly cloudy consistency. There was a small amount of foamy, pink-colored, fairly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: As you might expect, cherry dominates the aroma, with a hint of malt as well. Not exactly multidimensional, but you wouldn't expect it to be.

T: Tasted of cherries (a big heap of them), a hint of citrus, and a little malt as well. Has a bit of sourness about it. Not a bad flavor at all. Decidedly not complex, but certainly likeable.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a somewhat harsh, medicinal finish. Medium-bodied.

O: While this beer does have its rough spots, it's still worth a shot. Not the most spectacular lambic out there, but tasty nonetheless.
