Draught @ 16th Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation 2007, Opstal. Unclear medium red color with virtually none head. Aroma is moderate cherry, fruity, light acidic. Flavor is moderate sweet, acidic and bitter with a average duration. Very nice balance. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat.

Spontanious weekend 07. There was a problem with this beer in that pauline decided to drink it for me and then become almost sick as she was hungover and the last thing she would want is a stomach fool of acid, therefore no notes and only a score. I do recall it being very nice all the same.

thebeertourist (4755) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2007
On draught at the brewery. Dark ruby red with a great fine-bubbled pink-purple head. Woody lambik shines through the cherry aroma. Wonderful lemony lambik with mellow cherry and almonds flavours. Balanced with quite a dry woody finish. Smooth and medium-bodied. Can a kriekenlambik get better than this?

JoeinEscazú (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - APR 26, 2007
Deep, dark red with a frothy pink head. Big pie-cherry nose, sweet wild cherry flavor becomes somewhat tart and dry on the tongue, with some sharpness in the finish. Flat but not thin. Overall: semisweet fruit, dry and refreshing.

Stew41 (1722) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2007
Soda like with a pink cherry hue and nice small fizzy head. Assertive and lifted nose of cherry fruits, almost in the confectionary mould, such is the concentration. Unique flavours come out on the palate - more dead clear cherry with a powdery feel which, believe it or not, is also evident on the nose. Reminds me a lot of the chalky flavour candy I bought as a child that was packaged as an edible braclet. (200ml e2.00 on tap @ brewery)

Hazy ruby color. Aroma of cherry kernels. Dry mouthfeel, harsh astringency, light cherry fruitness.

MPA (782) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - DEC 4, 2006
Red with a light white head. Berries and sweetness in aroma. Sugary flavour with berries, fruit and only slightly sour. Had expected more but it’s a "must have again".

Christian (11021) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2009 Copenhagen beer festival 2006. Red with nearly no head. Weak cherry aroma. Acidy cherry flavour and very fruity. 4.1
WSF 2009. Juicy fresh cherries. a little almond, and wooden notes. Dry and tart, with delicious fresh cherry flavour. 4.2

Draught - Bruxellensis - A rich red coloured lambic with a slight white/pink coloured head. The aroma is sour acidity and good fruitiness. More raspberry in my opinion than cherry. The taste is nice and definitely cherry htis time. Quite restrained and easy to drink. Certainly no difficult sourness.
