12/2/05. blood red with no head. sour cherry aroma. oak, green olive, plastic, sour cherry flavor. the cherry is not strong enough to get over the strong woody, olive tastes. i hate olives and thats what it tastes like to me. not a fan.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A great kriek for sure, the 3 fountains pours out a nice dark red color with a pink head. The aroma is a great blend of sour cherries and wood. This baby has lots of sour cherry flavor, but also has a complexity from the oak flavors. Full moutfheel and easy to drink. Great, great beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Somerville Super Saver, dated Feb 1, 2005. This one is dry and extremely sour with an almost wounded hint of cherry and oak given the sting the sour quality delivers. Its almost like I’m drinking the cherry pits with a strong touch of oak. The dryness almost seems like a leather cloak enveloping the flavors. I have to say that this is exactly what I want from a sour lambic.

[Bottle from Rob in Hesselager].
A kriek from one of the great lambic brewers. This is really a sour one and at all no sweet sugar one. Great for that. I like it and I’m looking forward for another one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375 ML bottle. Poued a nice ruby red with less head than I had expected. Aromas were the expected cherry with that wild yeast smell too. Flavors were vey tart up front that settled down to a acidic cherry finish. Pretty Nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, and MDS, courtesy of Blankboy. 2004 bottle. And our only low alcohol beer of the night, which might explain why the tasting spiralled out of control after this one...anyway. Murky red, hazy, looks weird yet interesting, small white head. Wonderful aroma - funky yeast, slight hints of berry - really nice. Very dry taste - tons of cherry, short dry finish, lots of yeasty stuff in between. Maybe there isn’t the complexity I was expecting, but still really good.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, mds & tupalev -- my bottle courtesy of iguenard. Bottled 14/05/04. Pours a hazy dark ruby with a small diminishing pinkish-white head. Very nice sweet and sour cherry aroma. Flavour of sour cherries, yeast, oak and a sweet, dry finish -- nice and complex and quite tasty. Full bodied. Fantastic!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Monk’s Cafe...
bottled on Feb 1, ’05.
Appears a hazy, cran-raspberry toned rose with a small white head that fades into a tiny cap. Streaks of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is funky, with tart apples, raspberries, cherries, horse blanket, earthy, and old perfume.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with aged, tart cherries being the standout of the funky bunch.
Mouthfeel is sweet up front, quickly becoming tart, and running along the sides of the tongue.
