It's not a beer actually. A pretty sour and very sweet. Its better to drink it at room temperature or a little lower, you will feel nothing if it is over chilled.
Colour is very nice, dark red.
Smell and taste like a beer with cherry jam.
Wife like it. Girly stuff..

It certainly do not taste like a regular beer, but there are others beers that doesn’t do that as well. A very nice red color appears as you pour the beer into the glass.

The beer tastes well and is refreshing. But it’s more like soda, juice or cider than a beer.

Very sweet and sugary in the taste.

Pours dark ruby, fluffy one finger head. Sticky lacing later on.
Smells really nice, sweet cherries, fruit pit, candy sugar, spices, some low floral notes.
Quite sweet (not syrupy) and fruity, but without feeling artificial. Sweet and bitter cherries, forest berries, red apple peel, not too much lemon zest. Not as sour as the "Retro Kriek", lower lambic elements too. Still tart enough. Spicy, reminding somehow of almond/amaretto and cinnamon. Low bitterness, wheat in the aftertaste.
A bit soda fizzy, but it's crisp and refreshing, just sweet enough, without lingering unpleasantly in the aftertaste.
Pretty good beer actually, made me think of cherry cake. Not such an interesting "lambic" tho.
