Dark red pour with a pink head. Nice rich cherry aroma with plenty of fruit and cherry skin notes. Some nice lactic tartness, a bit of grass, a mild musty funk, and some red fruits. A huge cherry character on the palate. Nice tartness, lemon zest, and musty funk. Great cherry skin, slight sweetness, with a dry finish.

Bottle. Awesome brew... on one level itís delicate, savoury, deep, and on another, itís acidic, vinegary, almost harsh. Probably the best Kriek Iíve yet to have.

Pours clear deep (ruby?) red (into a snifter), with a brighter pink head. Cherry on the nose - some sweet candy. Sour cherry aroma, some sweet candy. Slight carbonation with small bubbles, and a dry mouth feel.

Great aroma from wood, cherries (duh!), citrus and vinegar. Taste is indeed dry and tart at first and the cherries break through pretty much. In the aftertaste I get an earthy and woody note thatís almost bordering towards stable and old horse blankets. The aftertaste keeps it interesting enough for me and I will certainly try this one again. I still feel like thereís more to catch up for me in the lambic styles, but Iím starting to enjoy it more and more. A nice Kriek.

2008 vintage from Tanakaya. Poured into a snifter. Clear plum red color with no head. Dark cherry notes along with some wood, almond and mint also present. Very little to no carbonation present. Taste is very well-balanced between lightly sweet and lightly sour. Starts off fruity and mildly sweet on the palate with the cherry really standing out. As it goes down it picks up a mild sour tone. Finishes bone dry with some nice tannin like quality. Wonderful at this age.

Bottle at home. Poured a hazy strong red with a light read finger thick head. Aromas of cherries with fruit notes reminiscent of good red cordials. Slight oak but very weak (works well with my taste). Tastes mildly sweet, medium sourness and lightly bitter. Medium bubbles. Very very tasty!

A complex lambic, with great fruit influence , a fresing last beer, tasted after a long long of ticking, would come back to it.
