3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. 2008 vintage. Poured into a tulip glass a bright, vibrant red color with a pink collared head. Very funky aroma with an underlying sweet cherry note. Some wood as well. Light mouthfeel with good carbonation. More sweet than I was expecting. Slightly tart cherry. I’d be interesting to see if this would sour up with some time onas of now it’s just more sweet. Slight medicinal notes.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml bottle. Pour is a darkish ruby red with a quickly diminishing head of pink foam. Aroma is filled with funky sourness but the cherries are also a big presence. The flavor is nice, upfront bubbles and tartness instantly clear the palate, then the cherry flavors linger, not sour, not funky, just cherry. I’m happy with the aroma, but I was looking for a bit more funk to the flavor. It’s even a little sweet at the end, which is a surprise.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle (Brugs Beertje)
8 Just inhaling the freshly poured beer is an end to itself. The light fruitiness is beautiful, but the sharpness of the lambic fills the nose and goes all the way down the back of the throat
4 Deep red, brief head
8 Slightly bananaey retronasals. Very gentle malty body, just light grains, and a very subtle cherry component.
4 Refreshing palate, pleasant carbonation.
15 Absolutely lovely lambic, beautifully crisp. Refreshing, and giving no clue to the strength.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2008 vintage. HUGE thanks to jkane101 for the hook-up!
A- Uniformly translucent fushcia body with vibrant color. Pours with a 1 1/2 finger soapy light pink head. 1/2 finger retains nicely.
S- Nose is slightly sweet but vell balanced. Vinegar comes through the most initially as well as a slight acidic tartness-but the rest of the characters rush in quickly-oak, vanilla, sour cherry, and slightly sweet cherry.
T- Cherry, oak, vinegar and vanilla come through initially. Finish is slightly more tart than initial flavor-but with a similar profile. The tartness lingers slightly more than the rest of the profile-but nothing is overpowering and amazingly all the initial flavors linger slightly.
M- Well done. Smooth, slightly yeasty medium wieght body with soft carbonation.
D- This is a very good, well balanced lambic overall. Certainly one of my favorite krieks. This was a nice surprise as well as I wasn’t expecting this brew to be SO good. Would love to have this again!

Bouteille de 37,5 cl, Mousse minimale, couleur betterave rouge. Un breuvage raffiné mais je m’attendais à quelque chose de plus aromatique et à vrai dire, c’est un peu trop sec pour mes goûts. trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.
