Taste is quite acidic in such a form one cannot taste any balance. Smell is very nice balanced though.

I tasted it two times. First super fresh in the brewery I just had a sip. Second time from the tap in Chez Moeder Lambic Saint-Gilles and it feels like a two different beers. First was fresh and crisp and super sour. Second much sweeter, much more flat and dull. But still - it’s a great beer. Awesome sour flavour with cherry note, must try.

Sour aroma with sweet cherries. Totally red with pink head. The taste is all sour cherries. Medium body, slick texture & lively carbonation.

Hazy dark pink color with pinkish head. Aroma has very nice cherry and lambic funk notes. Perfectly balanced, not too offensive on the funky farmhouse notes. Taste starts intensely fruity, with medium tartness and rustic farmhouse note on the finish. Body is medium, quite smooth and well carbonated. Dry aftertaste. This is definitely my favorite kriek and on of the best lambic beers out there.

1/12/16 750ml bottle Old Notes-Pours a darker amber with no head. Aroma of tartness, cherries, and funkiness. Taste of the same. This light bodied lambic is darn right tasty.

mariuspoenari (428) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2015
Pours a perfect light ruby with a short-lived white head. The smell - tons of tart cherries on top of some lambic funkiness. Tastes sour with notes of cherries.

On cask at Moeder Lambic. Since it is on cask, it looks and has the mouthfeel of juice. Kind of tastes like cherry juice as well. Not really all that sour. Still, really enjoyed.

Rask0lnikov (162) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 12, 2015
Nice red colour when poured out. Very clear and transparrent red colour. Nice aroma of fresh cherries. At first, very extensive sourness with berries, then lots of juicy fresh cherries, hay, grassy. Really sour, but summery and refresshing lambic. Such a cherry bomb. Does not have that kind of complexity as Rose de Gambrinus, but with a kriek the straifghtfowardness is permited I guess.
