Schaarbeekse Kriek follows the same process of Oude Kriek. This Kriek is made exclusively with hand-picked local wild Schaarbeekse sour cherries.

Wild cherries, slightly sour...well actually very sour with some nutty notes. Cloudy red with a thin, white head that fades. Flavor of cherries, sweet and sour at the same time. Some nutty maltish notes in there. Wild and interesting, I can’t put my finger on these flavors. Wish I understood these better, but at least I am enjoying it. Dry with a nice mouthfeel. Thanks to DenverLogan and MrFacto for picking this one out.

Milwaukee YEHa!05, brought by DenverLogan. Red body, thin ring of off-white carbonation. Tart, sour cherry aroma, woody, musty, with the ever-present cheese rind notes. This is the closest to Cantillon I’ve smelled that isn’t actually from that brewery. Nice sour woody bite, with tangy cherries that really develop nicely, moving beyond sourness to the tart, sweet bite of a cherry pie. Cheese rind and must were present and delicious. Not quie as sour as Cantillon but I picked up more fruit depth here than I typically do in a Kriek. Excellent.

RLB YEHA 05. Side by side with the oude kriek. This one is a very cloudy deep pink/red with almost no head and it just looks a lot thicker than the oude kriek. Lots of cherry in the aroma, sweetness, and a bit of the lacto funk and sourness but not nearly as much as the oude. Flavor is also much sweeter, with fresher cherry taste, fuller body, and a slightly tart finish but not nearly as sour as I had thought it was going to be. I like that it has a crapload of fruit flavor similar to the Lou Pepe’s but perhaps even more cherry! This is one of my favorite Krieks.

JPDIPSO (5673) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Light rudy color with a dissipating pink head. Barn dust and tart cherry aromas. A summer night at the farm after harvesting the oats comes to mind. Lightly earthy tart cherries with a mild acidity to ensure the sweetness doesn’t overpower. Light wood and cherry liqueur linger in the finish. This begs for a summer night in the country.

Hazy rosy-ruby in color with some unpredictable black particles resting near the bottom. Dusty slash marks cross the surface suffice for the head. Breathe the blissful memoir, my friend. Cherries are a given, imparting a sour and tart dimension like no other as it channels through the olfactory. At times, it courses through tart, acidic cranberry laterals and pipes green grape skin basking in lemon and lime juice. Aroma is prominently parallel to what the taste buds discover. Carbonation is toned down, making way for the tart cherry stream. A glimpse of vanilla and amaretto nougats is quickly interrupted, returning us to the tart vessel of cherries. Someone nearly took a vice grip to a plot of red raspberries and extracted the juice, aiding the sour, fruity acids that is never breeched by flagrant sugar implications. Seemingly dries out and sweeps across the palate, leaving a forlorning and misleading sugar sweetness sense that, in the finish, masks the true sour glory that the kriek played on my palate. Thanks for picking this one out of Logan’s stash, MrFacto!

pours a ruby red color w/ a tiny pink head some lace. Smells of horseblanket and sour cherries. light palate decent coating. Flavor of sour cherries some wood, a bit earthy, definate leather. A fairly good lambic.

hopdog (11681) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2005
750ml bottle. Poured a dark and cloudy reddish color with a smaller sized reddish/pink head. Aromas of, you guessed it, cherries, yeast, and a little woody. Tastes of the same. Had a very nice and sour tart finsish to it.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Thanks to Logan for sharing this one! It pours a beautiful red with a pink head and lacing. The nose is of sweet cherries, cinnamon, wood and earth notes. The flavor is a very balanced marriage of sweet cherry, acidity, wood, and earth. One of the most well balanced and refreshing beers I have ever had. Spot on! I’m very happy I was able to enjoy it with a group of friends new and old! Thanks again Logan!

Pailhead (6430) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 22, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2010 Bottle (2007): The aroma consists of sour/tartness, barnyard, vinous notes, and cherries. It pours a transparent orangish-red with a minimal pinkish head that quickly fades to a very fine ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts moderately tart lemon along with some faint vinous notes. The finish has light-moderate cherry, light vanilla, a hint of vinegar, and just of touch of oak. The cherry flavors balance perfectly with the tartness. Light-medium bodied with minimal carbonation.
