2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
rather dissapointing... started out nice: indeed an intense red beer. aroma: sweet, very much cherry, hints of lambic present in background but nothing much. taste: sweet, not really cloying, but rather close.
this beer is not worth the extra cost (6 euro a bottle at the brewery) and I dare say that should it be the ’new’ Oude Kriek by De troch (or so) it would get burned. it is the most mediocre 3fonteinen lambic that I have ever tasted...

Bottle courtesy of Travlr - Thanks! The Bride announced that she wanted to save this for a special occasion, which last for about 90 minutes. Ah well...Anyway, this was really good. Very sour, but plenty of cherry flavor. Plenty of balsamic vinegar and red wine notes to really round out the flavor, too. Great stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
P: Very dark red, looks like blood just a bit darker with a thin pink head. S: Sugar, cherries, lemons, vinegar, wood, wheat, limes, and perfume. T: Oh man, this is sugary sweet, loaded with cherries, oak, lime sourness in the back. M: Medium body, light carbonation with a sour bite. O: Really good stuff that is very sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nov 2012 bottle. Dark red pour with a small pink head that fades to a nice ring. Aroma is cherry medicine, vanilla, red wine vinegar, earth, and light barnyard funk. Big cherry skin taste mixed with vanilla, vinegar, and wood. Fairly acidic. Light to moderate sourness. Big, tart, dry finish with a touch of sweetness too. I thought I was going to like this more. It’s a tad medicinal and not sour enough.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep blood red with no head. Aroma is cherry with a little peppermint type smell. Tart cherry with a vinous quality. A cheese funk settles into the tongue. Slightly watery mouthfeel that ends dry.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A red wine color no head. Smells of sour cherry, vanilla, a little funky, a small bit of chemical. A smooth baking cherry sour taste, a hint of vanilla, a slightly buttery taste, a bit of oaky hop. Slick mouthfeel, dry. Satisfying smooth sour.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark red pour and cherry scent all over. Sticky red fruits, cherry, sirup, slightly medicinal character. Aroma intertwines with the alight-soury cherry lambic flavour in a balanced manner. Cherry aftertaste lingers on amazingly on the palate. The thickness, opposed to a regular "Oude Kriek" is a real joy. Carbonisation and sourness is also mild, offering us an amazing fruity experience with a substantial body. Lovely!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml bottle in a teku. Pours deep pinkish/purple with an off-white head. Aroma of sourness and cherries mainly, some light funk, hints of spices, some pale malts, and maybe some earthiness. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything with the strong cherries and tartness. Average texture. A solid beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A 500 ml bottle shared by JK. Pours a deep scarlet red colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that leaves behind a thin film top. Aroma of intense cherries (as described in its name) with a hint of brown sugar and light funk. Taste is medium to full bodied, with flavors of cherry pie filling, some sweet/tart candy presence and some light funk. Finish is semi-sweet at first, followed by a mild tart funk.
