4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
26/05/2011 Les Vignerons (2008 vintage bottle). Fantastico color rubino-ciliegia, vivissimo, limpido, con lieve schiuma rosata. Aroma intensissimo di ciliegia, con note legnose, resinose, pinose e balsamiche. Una meraviglia. In bocca Ť elegante e forte, acida senza mezze misure, fruttata, vinosa, con leggere note agrumate, poco acetica, poco astringente. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft, al palato Ť semplicemente magnifica. Kriek straordinaria, di gran lunga la migliore mai bevuta.

Bottle at lambik-O-droom. Cloudy red with white head. Aroma is very barnyard, funky and tart, also fruity cherries. Taste very nice ripe cherries, yeasty, clean, and crispy. Slightly dry and woody.

Pours a hazy purple red from the bomber with thin ring of bubbly pink head. Aroma of vinous grape, tart raspberry, complex funk notes, and a hint of acidity. Taste is sweet fruitiness, funk in the middle, and a dry finish. Really intensely funky and fruity, but nice balance and super drinkable, a bit pricey though, even in Brussels.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle. 2008 bottle. Originally reviewed 3/2/2013.
Red body. Not much of a head, but there wasnít 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 isnít 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. Thatís the point I guess.
