3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the greats among ’old’ krieks, with ’malse’ lambic and a higher ABV - and higher cherry dosis than is customary. Thin, off-pinkish head, deep red colour, very complex aroma with lots of fresh sour cherries, lactic acidity, barnyard and lambic funkiness, hay, vinegar, lemon peel... Taste very fruity, a combination of fruity lambic esters with loads of real cherries, utterly dry and sour but not in a very astringent way, elegant, with a very long, complex lambic finish. Perfectly balanced kriek.
