Just popping open the cork was to be rushed with the fragrance of cherries. No messing around here then, fruit by name, fruit by nature.

Very red beer, and the head was distinctly pink. Guess what it smelt like, erm yes cherries, but also like the powdered sherbert that I loved as a kid.

Tastewise it was a revelation - I was expecting a sweet cloying flavour, but au contraire this was tart and acidic balanced out with a sweetness in the aftertaste, and as I did expect lots of fruitiness. The body was smooth and velvety.

This pours a maroon red color with a foamy, light pink head. The aroma is rich with sweet cherries. The taste is sweet with cherries evolving into a tart finish. Decent flavor, but the texture is a little thinner than I would have imagined. A smooth, refreshing desert beer that I’m a little surprised doesn’t have a higher rating.

Single finger head on a reddish brown body. Tons if lacing, light aroma which is as expected mostly fruity and raspberry like. This is an excellent lambic with a nice raspberry and medicinal cherry taste up front and brown sugar finish with moderate to high carbinaion and light body. Overall very drinkable and one of the better lambic beers out there.

A - Poured with one finger of white foam on a clear, amber colored body. The head fades slowly and leaves thick lace.

S - Sour malty aroma with some medicinal cherry.

T - A sweet, candy like cherry character up front with some malty caramel in the middle. Finishes with caramel, tart fruit, and dark sugar.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - A very strong cherry presence with enough sweet and sour character to be eminently drinkable.

Bottles bought in a department store in Monterrey, México, with a best before date of August 2006.

Pours a beautiful bubbling rosé champagne-like brew, with a nice pink to reddish head and good lacing.

Smell is of cherries and little maltiness.

Taste is refreshing, fizzy, of cherries. Good balance of malts and sweetness of the fruits.

Mouthfeel is crisp, sweetish though.

Of course I'll have another one. Actually, I am.

I adore Mort Subite. Such a nice beer to have on the off occasion. This one is laced with cherries. Aroma is very subtle but you can detect cherry and fruit. Taste is an explosion of taste. Cherry with the dry bitterness of cranberry with the bite of alcohol. Just a fantastic mouthfeel.

Brought back this bottle from my trip to Amsterdam. Comsuned 7/28/04, date on bottle says 11/05.

This beer is absolutely beautiful. As it's pouring out of the bottle it's a light pink color, and acquires darker reddish-brown colors in the glass. A huge and gorgeous light-pink, creamy foamy sticks around the glass after a pour.

As for the scent, it's not as strong as I expected, and is best-described as cherry-musy. An old farmouse. Old cheese. And there's a wiff of cherry in there, too.

The taste is crisp and only slightly tast, and the surprisingly large head adds a creamy aspect aspect to the mouthfeel. The level of acidity makes there more of a lemon taste than a cherry taste, though some cherry notes are still there. Later, as the beer warms, the sweet cherry flavor lingers in the aftertaste. Mmm....
