Una vera kriek, non ruffiana, senza aggiunta di zuccheri infermentiscibili.....note ciliegiose e acetiche........bel finale, lungo e amaricante

(On tap at barVolo for Zwanze Day 2014, Sept 20 2014) Pours lightly hazy deep pink with a huge pale pink head. Aroma lots of sour cherry pie filling, lightly acidic with barrel hints. Flavour acidic, lightly lactic but not yoghurty, sour cherry strong at first but drying and more preserved cherry towards the finish. There is wood middle to end but not very funky per se. Light with moderate active carb. Very refreshing. Not the most complex lambic but it drinks very well nonetheless.

Bottle, thanks to mcberko. From notes. Pours brilliant clear red-purple. Tons of cherry; vinegar; lemon juice; lemon drop; funk. Together it all feels strangely synthetic. More and more it’s got a menthol medicinal lozenge thing. I mention it to Eric who pops out a bag of cherry cough lozenges (with eucalyptus). I’m a serious drinker so I do a blind side-by-side. Cough drop is more solid; more redvine cherry, but the backup is similar. Can tell the kriek -- dirtier, funkier, liquid, but rather similar in a lot of other regards. Light body, slick texture.

Wonderful cherry color with a decent head for style. Aroma of sour cherries, tart and fresh. Taste tart and refreshing, with a strong sour cherry presence. Palate shows more of the "lambic" flavors. Very nice

750mL bottle pours a murky reddish purple with a quickly dissipating pink head. Mildly tart aroma woody oak and slight fruit. Lots of earthy oak in the taste tart and sour with some nice cherry. Dry and very nice!

rosata . poca schiuma. intensamente profumata di ciliegia . in bocca rivela subito una forte acidità con un dolce aroma di ciliegia. fresca e fruttata. birra tacchente.

375ml bottle poured in a chalice. A: Pours a deep cloudy ruby red color with a huge rose head. Head is aired and bubbled with a reasonable retention. Does not disappears completely and leave few lacings around S: Pure Lambic: Delicious. Very fruity and with the traditional smell of Belgium Lambic yeasts T: Follows the nose. Very cherry. Dry, tart and very very sour M: Light body and high carbonation. Dry and sour D: High. I use to be intolerant to wild and sour beers... I was wrong ;) [ BA Review @ 9/26/2010 ]

psilosophy (496) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - OCT 12, 2014
Bouteille de 37,5cl. Version bio. Magnifique couleur rubis, peu de mousse. De subtils arômes fruités-acidulés passent largement après le côté boisé. Certainement de la très bonne came pour les amateurs mais loin d’ être mon style de prédilection. Trouvée à l ’entrepôt - Courcelles les Lens.

On tap at Borefts 2014. Comes a somewhat cloudy bright red with a nice pink head. Aroma of funk and fruit. Taste is tart cherry, funk, yeast, and some oak. Excellent.

Cask at Moeder Lambic, 6th October 14. Lovely colour, nice head and lacing. Aroma, funk and some cherry a little yeast. The taste is not as tart as I expected, good balance, the cherries come through nicely, good stuff

Beautiful. Cherries all around: on the nose, on the tongue, and on the eye. Easily one of the most beautiful beers to see in a glass with a taste to match.
