Deliciously sour cherry beer. Not cloyingly sweet but with slight lemony notes that serve to brighten the accompanying flavors. Overly sweet lambic production this is not. They have their time and place, but a great beer like this is timeless.

Bottle at Cantillon. Red with thin pink head. Aroma is cherries with the Cantillon-house fingerprint. Very dry and tart. There’s some harsh, tannin-like flavours as well. A bit to tart perhaps, I liked the Gueuze better, but this is nonetheless a very, very fine kriek, one of the best.

Bottle corked in 2005. Let breath for 30 mins from fridge. Pours grenadine red into a tumbler. White clutches the rim. Feet, garden vegetables and slight cherry aromas. Immediately fizzy,sour, cherry, and mint - with a lemon and aspirin finish.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2006
Bottled. Amber and reddish in colour with a medium sized pink head. Nice sourness - somewhat citric and of course cherry notes. Notes of vinegar and also a slightly earthy feel.

At the brewery. I had this right after the gueuze, so most of my comments are comparisons to that beer. Smell is less acidic and less brett-y than gueuze, mostly of a faint brett and cherry overlay. The brett is definitely there on the flavor, and the acid is more tangy and mouthwatering, but the grape and fruity roundness is not there. The cherry is subtle overall, mostly a nice accent to the long and tangy finish. While the gueuze had nicely developed flavors, this seems flatter, like a cherry Flemish red. Still good, but I’m glad I got the other one first.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JUN 26, 2006
Very very tart, sour cherries. Dominate the nose. Red with light pink head. Flavour is vinegary, some cherry. Very very sour again. Completely over-rides any other taste there. Nice, just too tart. Some fizz. Vintage 2005.

BeerandBlues2 (9760) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 21, 2006
12 oz corked and capped bottle. Pours garnet, ruby with a foamy white head and patchy, edgy head. Aroma is sour berry, malt, cardboard, citrus nose and yeast (mold, sweat). Sour berry flavor, heavy acidity and tartness that kicks in ALL saliva glands, medium bitterness, lemon rind finish. Medium bodied, dry and fizzy palate.
