This might be the best lambic that I have ever had, although I haven’t persused my past ratings to see how it stands. It has everything that makes a lambic a lambic -- the bacteria is forthright and assertive. The fruit is most definitely understated, a little too much so, but I still love this stuff. Challenging and rewarding all at once, I really need to try some more Cantillon stuff.

Salmoniform (261) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Pink hue with white fizzy head. Aroma is funk, cherries, straw, lacto, cinnamon. Mouthfeel is amazing with a light body and great carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with huge cherry tartness followed by a dry lacto finish. Overall this brew is spectacular!

Grzesiek79 (2966) - Radom, POLAND - APR 13, 2014
Bottled in 2011. Drink After 3 years. Wspaniale huczne otwarcie korka, szampanowe musujace wrazenie na poczatku, szybko rosnaca lekko rozowawa piana. Ale trwala, spora i utrzymujaca sie do konca. W zapachu agrest, porzeczka i wisniowy likier. W smaku kwaskowate z lekka nutka slodyczy, bardzo lekka bo kwaskowatosc bardziej przewaza. Piwo po przelknieciu wyraznie kwaskowate, wspaniale owocowe, wisniowe i urzekajace. Do tego ekologiczne skladniki czynia tego lambicka super dobrym. Koncowka wyraznie wytrawna i kwaskowo octowa. Zwlaszcza po wypiciu juz zmieszanego piwa z osadem. Klasa i super dobry moj 3 letni Lambick. Goraco polecam

Maakun (322) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2014
Exactly 3 years old. Very nice red color with brownish hue. Small pink head that disappears very fast. Fresh red berries and sour cherries, light funky, fresh dough. Taste is very fruity, some sweetness but mainly a very deep sourness. Also has some dry bitterness like biting on a berry pit. Medium to light bodied with full feel because of the sourness. Really good.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2014 Sour, as you would expect from a kreik, but not too sour. Nice taste. Overall, pretty easy to drink.

Aroma: sour, champagne, cherries. Appearance: red, small reddish frothy head. Taste: heavy sour. Palate: acidity, sours dominating, cherries, medium to lively carbonation, dry average-long finish. Overall: a Kriek, decent for this style, a bit too dry and acidic for my taste though. Bottle from Beer Hawk, England.
