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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Very nice cherry beer with some fragments of bitter. It’s foam is very week and has a terrible taste but the beer itself makes up for it.

Tap at the 20th Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. It pours a cloudy red grape colour, with no head or carbonation. The nose is daffodil, lily, sour red grape, wine, sweet cherry, subtle grapefruit and jammy dodgers. The taste is red grape, juicy cherry, spinach, tart red grapefruit, floral, lime and Granny Smith apple, with a dry finish. Well balanced, but not as sour as I expected/hoped for.
