bottle at Firewaters. Poured a ruby red with a very small off white head. Aroma was light to medium. The aroma is tart, sour cherries with some funkiness. Taste is tart and sour cherries, funky throughout. Sour, vinegar like finish, in a good way. Excellent, although I donít think I would be able to drink more than one of these in a sitting.

The aroma had soury fermented fruit, an acidic cherry aggressiveness and was malty sweet. The beer poured a brownish/red color with very slight head and lacing. The flavor had soury fermented fruit, cherries, slight earth notes, and was malty sweet. The mouthfeel was light and crisp, very carbonated with a dry finish.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2008 Re-rate, 1994 vintage bottle from Chris of Ebenezer’s from his cellar and holy shit this aged well. Beer 14 Summer 2006 trip in Europe. Drank on 7/1/06 from the bottle at Cantillon. I sampled this after my tour. This kriek is very delicious and complex. It is nice to find a kriek that isnít super sweet and that is drinkable. Another fantastic lambic from the Pros at Cantillon

Bottle. Murky red in color with a swirl of light colored head. Interesting look, I have a feeling most people wouldnít look at this and think beer. Aroma of mostly yeasty, funky stuff, light fruity notes. Taste is fruity, cherry and wickedly sour. I like the sour. There is some more of the funk as well, it is a flavor that is hard for me to describe. Finish is dry and has more of that funk. This is a style I am new to, but this is decent.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2006
Nice light red color,small reddish head that had a decent hang time then faded quickly to leave nothing behind.Aroma was lightly cherry with some hints of barnyard and some sourish notes.The flavor came off as much the same as the aroma with a nice cherry side and fairly sour with a tinge coming on in the middle of the old barnyard old hay or something that is just plain hard to describe other then itís lambic.I guess itís not bad but then i usually have a hard time with lambics unless there more on the sweet side.

There is low hint of cherry, with an acidic note. Pours a light pinkish color with a nice pink, bubbly head. Tart on the tongue with a slight cherry flavor along with a vinegary finish on the palate.

Not much cherry in the aroma, and for that matter the taste either. It does have a significant bite. A beer to be had in small portions.
