One of my favorite sours. This is a beer I believe should be had. The sour of this beer is apparent right off the bat. The appearance for some reason surprised me. I have had this beer a few times before, but for some reason this pour was something else. It is a beautiful type of purple/pink that is bright and non transparent. It’s a beautiful beer in all areas of rating. Cheers King James

Unlabelled 750ml bottle. Lambik-O-droom. Ruby red. Soft haze. Pale pink head, that dissipates. Nose has old cherries. Cherry stone. Vanilla tinged oak. Some sour cherry skin. Taste is light, fruity sour. Some sweetness on the lips. Light, clean body. Very cleansing and a little tannic. Light, cherry sour finish. Lovely.

A 750ml bottle at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. There were two conflicting bottling dates. The original label has a bottled on date of 28th April 2010 whereas Moeder Lambic added a 2015 bottling label. Whatever research I could muster up shows that there does appear to be a 2015 bottling on 30th January 2015 out there (first since 2011). Poured into a 3 Fonteinen gueuze glass. It poured a cloudy dark ruby red colour with a big three finger light pink head that dissipated fairly quickly, leaving very sparse lacing. Aromas of very nice fruity cherry and strawberry with a hint of vanilla. Tastes sour, tart, cherry and strawberry with some very light funk. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall very nice and refreshing with great aromas. Unfortunately I have not tried the regular Oude Kriek though, so I cannot compare to that yet.

750 mL bottle. 2008 bottle. Originally reviewed 3/2/2013. Red body. Not much of a head, but there wasn’t much of a pop when the cork came out. Still has a strong cherry nose. Less of the Drie Fonteinen signature funk. More of a lemony acidity. Hefty oak to it. Lemon sourness up front. Cherry flavor isn’t sweet. More dry and wine like. Finishes very dry and oaky. Mild sourness. Much more dry than sour. Low carbonation, but that could be age. Mustiness does indicate its age though. Lacking the Drie Fonteinen complexity, but that cherry flavor is very nice. That’s the point I guess.

Merci à Rémi pour le partage de ce vintage 2010. Une autre grande kriek toutefois bien différente de la Lou Pepe de Cantillon qui a précédé celle-ci. Liquide très clair sans pour autant être cristallin. Aucune mousse ou presque ne survit lorsque le liquide est versé dans mon verre. Ce lambic est probablement le lambic fruité le plus ’clean’ - pour emprunter l’expression qui décrit le mieux cette bière, qu’il m’a été donné de déguster. Le fruit ayant tombé avec le temps, il demeure dans cette boisson une cerise délicate qui se conjugue parfaitement à une touche boisée et claire. Le funk présent est délicat, laissant place à des saveurs bien précises de fruit d’été. Rien ne vient brouiller les cartes, pas même une l’effervescence pour nous distraire. Un lambic très cartésien.
