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.

Sampled at the brewery thanks to kermis. Nice deep dark red color, no head. Smell and taste red fruit, cherries, lightly sour. Very dry and very fruity finish. Nice.

Clear ruby coloured with a light red head. Aroma of berries, butter and wood. Light acidic flavour of cherries, wood and fruits.

On tap at Cph Beerfestival. Clear, cherry-red beer with no carbonation and head. Aroma of sour cherries and cellar. Some other berries as well. Tart and acidic in the mouth, with cherries dominating the flavor. Thin bodied, like a watered-down juice, but not that low on flavor. It cleans your palate quite well. (060519)

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)

Purple and red in colour, big pink head. Light sweetish berry aroma, a hint grain. Nutty flavorbase, citric notes, less sour than the De Cam Kriekenlambik I had before. Mellow mouthfeel, dry in the back of the throat.

DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - APR 1, 2008
(3/10/08) On tap at Drie Fonteinen restaurant in Beersel. Deep red, almost opaque, with medium pink head. Aroma of cherries, a bit medicinal with hints of funk. Flavor is sourish with some medicinal notes, cherries, some citrus and some sweetness as well. Light to medium body. Quite good but definitely not great.

A rich red coloured lambic with a slight white/pink coloured head. The aroma is sour acidity and good fruitiness. More raspberry than cherry. The taste is nice and definitely cherry this time. Quite restrained and easy to drink.

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.

Drunk on draft at 3 Fonteinen in Beersel. Very strong cherry flavour. Sweetness varies but some sugar added. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
