33 cl bottle, bought at the brewery.
A lambic with cherry overtones, none af the mature roundess or softness of other krieks. Sour and acidic. I find this refreshing, but it is not for beginenrs. Sour apples, sour cherries, almost vinegar. Cloudy, a bit yeast.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted at Cantillon, Brussels. Sour barnyard aroma. Extremely sour, bu the cherry is clearly there and like Gambrinus, this is real fruit flavor and not a syrup. Red color. Excellent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Vintage 2002: Bottle courtesy of Mike (Eyedrinkale) Pours a nice hazy bright red with a well retained head. Bright aroma with wood notes, sour farmhouse, horse blanket, lemony hints and of course cherries. It has an extremely tart flavor, makes me pucker, especially the first sip. Dry as a bone, with a lemony like sourness. Stuff is pretty drinkable though, a nice palate cleanser.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an almost clear ruby with a creamy pink head. Interesting to note that of the 3 * 750ml bottles I bought in Belgium, the one that I bought at the supermarket was the best, it had a better, more uniform carbonation and more balanced feel to it than the ones that I bought at the brewery and a beer shop. Must have been sitting nicely on that shelf for a long time. Anyway, enough ramble... Aroma of wet hessian and a light tart dry cherry, perhaps some light ginger and almond too. Flavour is medium tart, fresh cherry, brett, almond, pit tannins combining very well. The finish is quite long, fruity and tart... I just love the finishes in the cantillon range. World class.
