Draught @ [ ACBF 2011 ].

[ As 3 Fonteinen Kriekenlambik Schaerbeekse Version ].
Dark deep red colour with a small small, open and fizzy, fully diminishing head. Aroma is moderate to light heavy cherry, berry, wood, fruity, light to moderate sour berries - cherry. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate acidic with a long duration, sour cherries, fruity - berry. IMO. very well balance and very nice. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is flat to soft. Just one word LOVELY :D [20110403]

Vignale (3323) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2012
Flaska från Brill. Kall djupröd färg med lågt rosa skum. Mer geuzeliknande doft än kriek. Väldigt lite spår av körsbären. Kärvt syrlig, tanniner, kanske från körbärsskalen, moreller, liten kärnbeska, mycket geuzelik och riktigt riktigt god.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2011
At ACBF 2011. Pours ruby-red, like wine, with a few bubbles. Loads of light, sour maraschino cherries on the nose. Sour, smooth flavor, light funk, some butter, faint bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Mild sour finish, faintly lip-smacking. Insanely drinkable. Some light sugars in the finish, too. Very darn good.

FlacoAlto (4152) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Draft Sample from Drie Fonteinen Cafe, 2001
The Kriek had a light pink head was a dark reddish color and a bit cloudy. There was an evident cherry aroma and the Schaerbeek cherries came through in the taste as well. I would describe the beer as almost thick and it was definitely sweetish, though not sickly so. The pink head was quite creamy yet it was not all that resilient. The carbonation was also quite a bit lower than the Gueuze, which makes sense, as, being a draft product, it is not bottle conditioned. Overall this was an incredible example of the Schaerbeek cherry, very complex and wonderful. Too bad it has such a limited production.

kappldav123 (5890) - GERMANY - MAR 21, 2011
Draught at the ACBF 2011. Special version with scharbeekse krieken. Deep red in the glass, small head. Starts mild fruity, very well balanced, a bit sourer than the version with Polish cherries. Modest salty hints. Finish well balanced, fruity-berry, not too intense sour, quite drinkable. Well done!
