3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm.
Deep red body, with a medium, creamy, quickly dissipating, slightly pink head.
Aroma is sour, tart, with fresh cherries, sour fruits, barnyard, some barrel notes.
Taste is dry and very fresh, with about the same aromas.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a strong carbonation.
Finishes dry, sour fruity and tart.
Tasty! Fortunately almost no cherry sweetness, fresh, dry and complex. Greatly balanced. Simply an excellent, classic Kriek Lambic!

It is a shame that this is a brewery that is hard to find unless you live in Belgium. Fortunately, in my travels I was able to visit the brewery and it is the perfect setting for the ultimate and original lambics. I enjoyed them all, but this Kriek is done as Kreik’s are supposed to be...not sweet but complex and sour. Cantillon allows their sours to age properly to ferment out and that is where their wonderful, patient flavors come from. Yum!

From 375 ml bottle in tulip. Pour is light red with almost no head. Great cherry nose with lots of funk and tartness. Taste is dry pungent sourness with a fresh cherry flavor and a long lingering light bitterness. Great funk and tart flavors as all Cantillon beers. This is a perfect fruity sour beer.
