Bottle at reffer temp into a goblet.

Head small (<2 cm), white with pinkish tinge, creamy, mostly diminishing.
Lacing fair.
Body clear, light red (not pinK), light to medium palate, watery to creamy.
Carbonation fizzy.

I first had this beer at Belgo Centraal in the Covent Garden region of London. It was a fantastic introduction to lambic and kriek beers. Then it seemed to disappear for a couple of years. Now it's back as a mass-produced product complete with artificial flavoring and color. Sad, really, that it's no worse than Bud.

Purchased this from the LCBO for $3.70 CDN some time ago, finally getting a chance to enjoy it. Served cool into a small pint glass.

Appearance - Pink, with faint pink head. 1.5 fingers of head poured with ok retention time. Some lacing is left in the glass.

Smell - To me, I got more cranberry than anything else although there's elements of cherry and raspberry (sourness) that come through.

Taste - Cherry very faint, honestly dominated by interplay between cranberry and raspberry. Nice transitions here between some lingering sweetness and the sourness of the fruits.

Mouthfeel - Smooth and refreshing, high level of carbonation and a tingling sensation. A touch on the tin side, but still very good feel.

Overall - This isn't something i would purchase regularly, but a nice beer to have in the summer or looking for something with a nice fruit infusion.

Pours with a dark red color, exact color of cherries, and is topped with weak head. The aroma was a bit disappointing (luckily the only disapointing thing here). I expected a pleasant cherry aroma, but I got a slight acid smell reminding me of cheap wine. The taste was a completely different story - sweet and slightly hoppy towards the end. I could definitely taste some cherries. One of the best krieks so far, sweet (not too much) and easy to drink.

Poured from 375mL corked & caged bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: amber hue with a light haze and a relatively strong effervescence. Head is two fingers of frothy white foam with nice tenacity and lacing. I like it.

Smell: earthy cherry aroma; a little bit of tartness is present, but not much. Decent, but unspectacular.

Taste: cherry character is pretty light, but nice nonetheless. There's an earthiness to the flavor which works well enough, although it is missing a lot of that classic lambic character. Not bad, but not worth going out of your way for.

Mouthfeel: relatively light body with a great big carbonation and a big creaminess. I like it.

Overall: a decent fruity beer, but not a great lambic.

From a bottle into a snifter.

This is my first experience with lambic beer, so I did not know what to expect. This beer poured cherry red (surprise!) with a very thin head. The smell was slightly vinegary, but thus was not the case with the taste which was sweet and cherry. There was low carbonation present and this made me wonder if I had a bad/spoiled bottle. It was marked best before 2014, and it has been cellared correctly, so I am at a loss.

While this was not a bad drink, it is not something I would go chasing after anytime soon. I think I will give the style another chance, but perhaps with something of a better reputation.
