3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2014 375ml green corked and caked bottle, poured into a flute glass. Appearance is clear ruby red with a medium sized China pink head. Aroma of cherries, green apples and barnyard. Flavour of cherries, table grapes, red currants and oak wood notes. Taste is light sweet, medium bitter and light-medium sour. Palate is medium-light bodied, smooth texture and average carbonation. A good Lambic Kriek, the flavours taste authentic, and the beer has a pleasant sourness and is refreshingly light on sweetness.

Bottle at home from drinkstore
Dark ruby with clear white lacing. Plenty of cherry skin and stone character on the nose with a subtley lactic undercharacter, full bodied, tonnes of tart cherries and plenty of silage like brett but with a shorter finish on the fruit than mariage parfait

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
375 ml. bottle, 2008 vintage, poured in to a flute. Deep, deep red colour with a thin, bubbly very light pink head. Fruity, sour aroma with tart cherries, fruits, oak barrel - rather wooden actually - earthy, leather-like notes. Taste is sour. Medium body, slick texture and a flat carbonation. Finishes long lasting acidic with tart cherries, lots of wood and yeasts. Some spices. Excellent Fruit Lambic.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flesje meegenomen bij de bierschuur. Paarsrode met met een flinke roze kraag. Geur is mooi subtiel kersen en alcohol op de achtergrond. Smaak is zoetzuur en erg mooi in balans, met een volle afdronk. Nieuw genre voor me, erg aangenaam kriek.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2012 bottle. Pours deep red with pink delicious foam. Aroma is berries (mostly cherries but also red currants), a mouldy barnish touch with some yeastiness. Taste is initially berries and progresses into a vinous sourness. Ends dry. Body is medium. Not as harsh as some krieks can be. Very tasty.
