Entirely too sweet for my liking. Would have liked to see the sour cherry come through more. As it warmed there was a slight oakiness in the nose and flavor.

750 ml cork bottle “2011 Crop” bought at Valentino Chocolatier in Wan Chai.
Looks: Clear black cherry - currant colour with no yeast sediments.half finger head with off-purple foam which fades in 20 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing with quite fizzy carbonation.
Aroma: fragrant sour cherry with light yoghurt, red wine, strong funk, oak, sugar, tannic and malt
Taste: Very light sweet taste of light malt, with sour cherry fresh, blackcurrant, yoghurt, light vinegar, wood barrel, funk, high carbo, light tannic, hint of red wine, faint lemon and very light grass
Body: Close to light body. Watery palate.
Mouth feel: Both the lambic tartness and black cherry tastes seems to be on the light side, might have been neutralized by the sugar, yet overall taste is nice minimal sweetness with a bit of vinegar notes. Strong oak barrel presence you can taste it right away. Overall taste is neat and on a bit of muted side. Hmm…
Hoppiness / Tannic: weak grassy hops typical for fruit lambic, Fairly light in tannic. No bitterness slight tannic finish.
After Taste: Wet after taste. Very easy to mouth.
Comments: After Boon Framboise, I expected just as much for this one. It came up short for thin body, rather simple aroma, and rather weak lambic and cherry taste. However, it shows it maturity with strong oak nose and taste, good balance of sweet and sour, at the expense of richness and variety. Good, but not great.

Little bottle with dinner. Pours out a nice ruby color topped with a pink head. Nose is all cherry sweetness and a touch of sour bite. Taste is sweet cherries a little tiny pucker on the end. A easy drinker for sure.

Pours a deep ruby red with a short lived pink head. Smells of ripe morellos, slight tartness, hints of oak and some artificial cherry candy smell. The taste is also dominated by morellos, cherry stones, some malt, light tartness with traces of oak in the aftertaste. A really nice easy drinking Kriek, great to find this in Norwegian grocary stores.

Bière rougeoyante, opaque et sans col. Au nez, De la cerise sauvage et des arômes acétiques. Elle est bien acide, peu amère et quelque peu sucrée. Elle est légère, de texture aqueuse, finement effervescente et se termine sur de courts arômes rafraîchissants.

Cerveja Lambic com adição de cereja no processo de fermentação. Acidez marcante. Cereja ajuda a reduzir a acidez. Enjoativa.

Bottle at home originally purchased at Bedford Beer Festival Oct ’13. Medium dark brownish red, with a bit of light sneaking through. Sour cherry aroma, a slight hint of earthy funk. I smell the almonds as well - are they really there or is it subliminal? Who cares, it’s nice. Light easy taste, sweet and sour balancing nicely: it’s not mouth-puckering but nor is it alcopop sweet. Thin palette. Good beer, would certainly have this again.

Nice fresh beer. It has some fresh cherry aroma, but the nose is not as strong as I expected. I also smelled some herbs and barnyard (like horse or leather, maybe coming from the wild yeast).
Body is around medium/medium -, I liked the crisp acidity. The flavors mirror the aromas, a light raspberry character stands up and lasts some seconds after swallowing the beer. Alcohol is not very strong.
Not bad, less "juicy" than I expected at first, but enjoyable.
