2003 vintage sampled at Logan’s RateBeer tasting. Major thanks to BBB63. Hazy, dull cherry body and an effervescent white head with a subtle pink tone. Aroma of musty sour cherries, horse blanket and faded leather. Acidity is high but not sharp or overpowering and balanced by some low to medium bitterness. This is an outstanding, quenching, wild, and pleasing kriek and another stunner from Drie Fonteinen. Easily my favorite fruit lambic.

Poured a hazy, red color with a small, off white / pink head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of tart cherry, light sweetness, barnyard, and vanilla. Taste was balanced nicely, cherries, leather, some nice tartness, lots of vanilla oak, and finishing acidic. Sweet cherries balanced out the crisp sourness, I like it.

pilsnerrogge (2800) - Finspång, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2005
(75 cl bottle 5% ABV) Red colour, no head. Juicy cherry aroma. Very little carbonation. Clean, sourish cherry flavour. Cherry stone bitter finish. Well balanced.

Pours red with a pink head. Strong jerry aroma dominates. Flavour is a wonderful balance of sweet sugar and incredibly juicy cherries. Lovely berrie notes too. So juicy and tart, yet clean in flavour. Wonderful!

argo0 (13077) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 23, 2005
(RBESG05, 750ml bottle) Pink head atop a red-pink body. Aroma is mild sweet, tart/sour cherry. Taste is mild sweet, cherry, tart, sour, with just enough sweetness to offset the sourness. Light body with light acidity.

DanielBrown (4373) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Bottle bought and kindly shared by Kook at Plan B during RBESG 05 pub crawl. Bright red, with a good pink head. Tart aroma of shifting sour cherry. Super sour initially, then even more on the finish. Cherry flavour is not massive in my opinion, overtaken by a very fizzy, sourness. Very long finish. Excellent Lambic, but I think I prefer DF’s standard Kriek.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Great looking red beer with a bubbly pink head. Aroma is tart cherries, sponge, cinnamon and wood. Taste is both tart and sweet, acidic and sour cherries. This is as good of a Belgian beer that Ive ever had. Remarkable. Thanks Clark for sharing this rare gem.

Bottled. Cloudy red coloured with a pink head. Acidic aroma of barnyard, wood and fruits. Acidic flavour with lots of fruits and wood.
