On tap at York River Landing.
A dark purple color with a moderate sized pink head that settled quickly. Sparse spots of lace.
Big cherry aroma, both tart and sweet. Vanilla and oak.
I thought it tasted like a cherry cheesecake. I loved it!
Medium-bodied, more sweet than tart
Great beer!

A 375ml bottle with a best before date of 21st January 2026. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.

Appearance: A dark ruby purple colour with a thin half finger pink-purple (like beetroot) colour head that dissipated quickly while leaving sparse to no lacing.

Aroma: Tart cherry, raspberry, light funk and a hint of almonds.

Taste: Tart cherry and dark berries with light funk, vinegar and oak. Sweeter to begin, while sour on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Nice, tasty and very easy to drink.

Thanks again Matty P, 2015 bottle.

A- Pours with a brilliant ruby body and a pink head rising up to a finger high with a foamy consistency. The head falls fast to a frothy ring at the edges. Lacing is somewhat rare with small pink spots sticking to the glass.

S- Prominent aroma of cherries joined by some sour ferment offshoots and notes of other tart and sour fruits. Raspberries, sour grapes and tart apples also come to mind with hints of funk, vinous dark fruits, wet oak, rich balsamic and yogurty lactic acid. Really has a wine feel to it here.

T- The cherries get even more intense and dominant with a true cherry flavor consisting of the pit, flesh and all with a slight fruity sweetness to round it out. Vinous dark grapes are heavy as well as lemony lactic acid, yogurt, balsamic vinegar, green apples, raspberry, plums and a fruit pit note really comes through consistently.

MF- A light-medium overall body with a certain thickness and a moderate level of carbonation. The texture is crisp with a bit of a foamy, frothy consistency. Ends tart.

Sour beers are amazing at preserving fresh fruit flavors and this is no exception. The Frederiksdal cherries are bursting with flavor and you get a ton of it in the aroma and the taste with the flesh, juice and pit all represented.

I just bought and had this cherry Lambic aged in oak barrels from Mikkeller, Denmark, ABV 7.20%. It is a great tasting Lambic (and not retired).

Look: Deep purple hue with a thin pink head.

Aroma: cherry, green apple, some funk

Taste: Tart and sweet cherry flavor, some lime, green apple, perhaps raspberry, slight bitterness, grapefruit, some funk and some oak. It is a very interesting and complex flavor.

Feel: light to medium body, crisp and easy drinking.

On-tap served in a stemmed glass at Mikkeller Bangkok.

Deep purple in color, it comes with a finger of violet pinkish head that retains itself for a while before sinking to some bubble sheet atop and leaving small lacing behind. There is some soapy effervescence risen when swirled.

In a nose, red and black cherry, raspberry, green apple, grape, red wine, fruity candy, oaky, funk, and earthy.

The taste is still very cherry. It is also with notes of oaky, tannin, raspberry, grape, red wine, juicy, musty, funk, earthy, grassy, and spice.

Medium body with some crisp and moderate carbonation that carries well the palate under quite smooth mouthfeel, finish is very dry. Juicy and tasty cherry Lambic, so refreshing.

Deep red, almost purple, with a matching colored head. Aroma of lightly tart cherries. Taste is tart cherry juice and some dark fruit. Can also taste some must and a hint of barnyard funk.
