Deep, deep cherry lambic with a strong tart nose and taste. The mouthfeel is surprisingly smooth, with an assured acidity.

Muuu! I i miei sensi muggiscono risvegliati dal potere acido di questa birra divina. Note intense di ciliegie che avvolgono il palato piroettano voluttuosamente su uno sfondo acido ammorbidito dall’invecchiamento, incredibilimente elegante e bilanciato. Chiudo gli occhi in estasi e continuo a muggire. Muuu!

Poured from bottle into sample glass (Kriek-off): Pours deep purple with a decent pink head. This reminds me a bit of grape juice with some cherries in it. A bit metallic, but certainly not poison like Ernesto states. A bit medicinal at the back end. Really not bad at all.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pour is ruby red - nose is tart cherries, a touch herbal. Taste is mouth puckering cherries, herbs, yogurt, really tart without being overly acidic. Creamier mouthfeel than typical for the style.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 750 to glass. Pink hue with light pink fizzy head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is acetic, white pepper, cherry. Mouthfeel is good with light body and high carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a spicy astringentness in the following coupled with sour. CO2 sharpness throughout the finish. Overall this was an interesting brew. Not as cherry fruit as some Kreiks that I’ve had...more of a cherry pit taste.

Bottle, 2011 vintage. Opened this on Easter to celebrate. Pours a reddish pink color with plenty of nice carbonation. Tastes tart but not puckery, great cherry flavor with just enough of that signature 3 Fonteinen funk. Excellent.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle sampled. Pours dark pink-ish with a quickly dissipating light pink head. Huge aroma of barnyard, funk, raspberries, acidic and red fruits. Can smell it from meters away. Flavour is highly sour, light sweet. Complex, excellent blend. Medium bodied.

From notes. Bottle shared by Bytemesis. Thank you! Bottled April 2010. Aroma was dominated by Brett... with tart red fruit underneath.. VERY wine like! Very captivating. Layers of Brett, barnyard, tart cherries, and cherry pie filling linger on the finish. Very powerful flavor and acidity. Very dry finish. Very enjoyable experience. Don't blend it!
