Dar red, purple. Just a hint of pink foam.
Intense smell of cherries, sour notes, a bit of solvent. Leather.
In the taste the sourness is strong. With more than hint of acetic.
Leather, cherries, cherry stones.
Hard sourness. Tart. Vinegar.
Almost flat.

I had this during SF Beerweek 2020 from the hand pump. Cask conditioned and delicious!

Pours a rich ruddy red, thin foaming with some life. Wonderfully vibrant aroma with the cherry notes upfront. Sharply tart, incredible finish.

Dark red color with a short white head, sour aroma of vinegar, stale wine and cherries, taste is the same, heavy sourness, difficult to drink, definitely not my style.

Sampled fresh at the source during Toer De Geuze 2019. Deep saturated scarlet, light haze, bursting with rich juicy Schaerbeek cherries in aroma and taste. Concentrated and rich, tart and juicy pie cherry with a hint of cinnamon and almond from the pits. Crisp and acidic, zero vinegar. Intentional low carb level, this is unblended lambic and fruit. Overall it’s intense and distinctive with a ton of Schaerbeek cherries. Not for the novice crowd.
