Cherry red with a little carbonation, and topped with a half finger of pinkish head. Fairly clear body.

Smells of cherries, rich sweet cherry pie! Not much more, its the pie filling with no crust or whipped cream.

A big balance of sweet and tart, cherries and vanilla. Quite rich.

Thick body, with moderate carbonation.

Got in Chiang Mai, where I am drinking it at home Sept 1st, 2017. Exceeded my expectations for the style of brew. Sweet to taste, its a dessert beer, but nice and refreshing.

I have no idea why this beer is so much underrated. It pours red color. Has a great cherry aroma and a great taste too. With a hint of almond and a bit sour. Nice feel and carbo. I think it's mislabled as lambic but it's very good fruit beer,

Pours dark red tinged with purple. Moderate pink head that gives up consistent lace. Everything about this is cherry. Cherry, cherry, cherry. Strong aroma and taste of cherry with a hint of the character of lambic beer. Where it really works on the finish where the beer has a lingering tart finish. Sweet up front, but not cloying or soda like, god natural cherry character to tase and smell. The brewers have simply gone all out to make this more about fruit than anything else, but the lambic side of it distinguishes it from straight juice in a good way. Points for craftsmanship.

Works as an extreme beer and, like any extreme brew, won't be to everyone's taste. Well, let's call this what it is - cherry juice with a lambic twist. If you like krieks, you'll find this at least interesting. I like krieks and really enjoyed this. Wish I could lay my hands on it more regularly.

Mmm. Cherry.
