3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, vintage 2013, enjoyed February 2015. Pours dark red, with a big but quickly receding creamy head. Aroma is dark, canned cherries, wooden berries and notes of wood, as well as some light tart fruity notes.
Medium body, with average to soft carbonation. Flavour is tart cherries, forest berries, tannins and wood , as well as some funky lactic acid and farmyard notes. Tart berry finish. Nice and drinkable with lots of cherries for sure, but a tad hard on the berry sweetness and a bit one dimensional and on the light side when it comes to the lactic, acidic lambic sting.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2015 375ml bottle served in a flute. My first lambic. Wine color with light pink head. Aroma is cherries, grapes, yeast, earthy and bread. Taste is grapes, cherries, vanilla and citric fruits. Sweet and sour aftertaste. Mouthfeel is like drinking wine. Soft carbonatation. Interesting beer.

Bottle. Dark hazy pink colour with a small pink head. The aroma has ripe cherry. Flavour is sweet initially, rounding out nicely, lots of ripe cherry. Very juicy! More sourness would be nice. Bloody good though.

On tap at Beer Deluxe. Pours red with a medium rose head. Typical kriek smell, but rather low key. Too much cherry in the taste, would need more carbonization or more sourness. Both are there but too faint. I definitely prefer the Oude Kriek and the Marriage Parfait.

Very good Krieke. Nice sour notes with sweet cherries. No after taste, smooth with a little head and nice red pour. Tart enough to hide sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a beautiful deep rose color with a nice pinkish white head. Aroma is dry, slightly tart, nice cherry sweetness. A decent tart in the flavor, but not overly sour, more on the sweeter end. Lingering sweet cherries in the finish. Tasty fruit beer for sure. Wouldn’t mind a bit more sour though.
