neongolden (1189) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2016
(On tap @ Akkurat, June 4 2016) Pours lightly hazed bright ruby with a tight lasting mid-pink head and lace. Aroma has lots of fairly intense cherry flesh, some skin, marzipan, cherry pits, dried herbal notes and aromatic wood. Flavour is extremely rounded with very little of the normal kriek acidity. Lightly tart cherry juice, acidic red grape, slight currant, cherry pit, a bit metallic, dry woody finish, dry leaves, slight bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium full and creamy with low carbonation. Not as jammy and concentrated in flavour as I had been expecting though. The metallic notes distracted a touch. Very nice but not transcendent for me.

(On cask @ 3 Fonteinen Restaurant, Beersel, Nov 14 2015) Pours a very deep pink-tinged red with a short lived head of medium pink froth and no lace. Aroma of moderately heavy horse blanket/hay over kriek flesh and some pit with a faint acidic lemon touch. Palate is acidic with maybe just a little sugar, light lemon juice, kriek flesh, light skin tannins, some musty cellar and oak. Finish is pretty soft, light acidity, cherry lingers, a bit of herbal bitterness underneath. Lightish of body with no real carb. Not as juicy as the Cantillon kriekenlambic as I recall it. More wood and hay presence. Certainly a very drinkable and fairly complex kriek.
