UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 TAP at Tour de Geuze. Shared with Mathieu87. Appearance: dark red beer, stable red/white/pink head. The head stays on for almost an hour?? I thought this was lambic... could be given the wrong thing, but I asked for a ’Kriekenlambik’ so should be right. Nose: very sour, but compensated with a red fruit sweetness. Mostly cherries noticeable. Taste: Begins soft and fruity, but finishes rather sour. A nice beer in total, but a little to sweet in my opinion.

On draft at 3 Fonteinen. I enjoyed one of these while chatting away with Armand on a rainy day. Anyhow, the beer is ruby red with a thick purplish, pink head. The aroma is cherry juice and hints of yeast. Much sweeter than a standard 3 Fonteinen kriek. Sugary sweet cherries, cherry pie, pie crust with hints of tartness in the finish. Lingering fruity sugars. A tasty beer for sure, but I much prefer the regular, more tart, krieks from this awesome brewery. Absolutely worth a try if you are fortunate enough to make the pilgrimage here.

shoulderbroken (2674) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 14, 2011
From cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Beautiful rich red/pinky purple colour with a massive pink frothy head of tiny bubbles which disappears slowly. Aroma is big cherries, bit of lavender slightly funkiness and a bit sweet too. Taste is slight cherry sourness initially and then mellowing into big fruitiness. Low carbonation but tingly on the tongue. Light bodied but very drinkable. This is a very special beer.

@ ACBF 2011. The aroma has fresh cherries, some horseblanket, some marzipan. Deep red coloured beer with no head. The taste is light sour, tart is very fruity and fresh. Smooth. Really a nice one.

At Drie Fonteinen during last week’s Belgium trip. Reviewed from notes. Served in a Drie Fonteinen tumbler. Pours a very bright red with a two-finger, long-lasting pink head and some night lacing as it finally dies down. The nose was full of powerful cherries. Very tart with a bit of sweetness. The cherry character in this was quite amazing. Super fresh with a nice bit of acidity in the end. Slightly puckering throughout. The freshness of this one was unmatched and I actually enjoyed it quite a bit more than the regular Oude Kriek.

Glass at Moeder Lambic in Brussels. This was fantastic!! Bright cloudy ruby colour with a pink 2 finger head that stayed around even though the beer was essentially flat. I must admit that I love the lack of carbonation as it gives this beer a wonderfully smooth creamy texture. There was lots and lots of funk here along with the smokey cherry stones. The flavour was almonds and cherries that were very fresh. Great beer

Aroma is loads of cherry, coated in brett. Also some barn, hay and dust. Flavour is light sourness, quite subtle, a bit watery. Massive cherry, smooth brett. Highly drinkable.
