Sort of an amber colored beer with a small off-white head. A strong rubber aroma to begin with. Grass and oak along with grape and currant aromas. A moderate tartness, mostly lactic acidity. The flavor is sort of mediocre. Lightly tart with heavy fruit flavors of currant and grape. Some of the same rubber and plastic notes that were present on the nose. Not as good as most of the others.

A-Pours a hazy pink amber hue which leaves a two finger creamy that stays and leaves heaps of lacing.

S-Barnyard funk,vinegar,sweaty must and sour grapes.

T-Sour grapes,barnyard funk,lemon zest and finished with a mix of sour white grapes and sherbet.

M-Sour sweet,mouth puckering,light bodied and finishes very dry.

O-Its not bad and the high ABV is well hidden but ive had way better lambics to be honest and probably would not revisit cheers.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of grapes and red currants, as well as some biscuit malt. The flavor is fairly sour. I get some tart red currant and other dark fruit notes, with a light amount of biscuit malt and a light amount of vinegar. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. Very nice.

Reminiscent of Cantillon Kriek. Dusty fruity nose and puckering sour taste.
