King_Alex_II (386) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Ruby red with rose foam. Fruity cherry sweet yet sour taste. No carbonation with an optimal sourness and excellent cherry use. A sour aftertaste, that is not intense, but quite lasting. Very nice beer.

SinH4 (679) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Draught @ Moeder Lambic. Fantastic reddish-pink color with big pinkish head. Subtle Kriek aroma, funk. Taste is nicely sour, not too sour, and fruit. So much fruit! Near-flat, as it is unblended. Fantastic!

Peter_L (1038) - SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2015
Nyupptappad direkt från lagringsfat@Cantillon bryggeri. Ljusröd vätska med lätt skumkrona. Tydliga körsbärsaromer med en lätt jordkällardoft. Smakar definitivt surkörsbär. Kärv och salivförintande munkänsla.

markextrae (1689) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2014
shared glass from draft at moeder lambik, poured a intense red colour with a pink head. strong sweet aroma of cherries, tart, caramel sweetness, same as with the framboise version from draft. it’s like it is a complete different beer. way to sweet, with allmost no carbonation. couldn’t enjoy this as much as the bottle version!

Cask @ Moeder Lambic. Deep red pour with a generous head. Loads of cherries, almonds, vanilla, funk. May more fruity that the regular kriek.

Sean9689 (285) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Cask at Chez Moeder Saint-Gilles and poured into Cantillon lambic glass.

Ruby red color, pinkish/cream head, bubbles, thin foamy ring. Nose is cherries, tart, funk, oak. Flavor is cherries, oak, funk, Fruit Tarts. Light body, tart dry finish.

I started ordering this stuff in the large pints and consumed many of them. So good, I wish I could walk around the corner for pours of this stuff when I was in the mood. Alas, it will have to wait until my next trip to visit Brussels.

Alengrin (2939) - BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
Cantillon’s lambic with sour cherries dissolved in it, tasted from tap at the brewery. This is what the famous Cantillon Kriek is made of. Feels like an old barnyard crammed with sour cherries and other fruit, hay, sherry, red berries, lemon, very complex. Obviously no head nor carbonation as with an unblended lambic (which is basically what it is, apart from the fruit). Dry, complex and totally refreshing on a hot day. Not commercially available but an essential must taste if you want to understand the complexity of Cantillon’s bottled fruit lambics.

Cask @ Moeder Lambic, St. Gilles. Pours red with a light pink head. Aroma is sourness, yeast, rich cherry, wood, cherry stones. Flavor is sour, rich tart cherries, almond, cherry stones, yeast, marcipan. Medium body, flat carbonation, lasting light sour finish. 300714

Habanero (3046) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2014
Tap. Clear red body with a small pink head. Aroma of sour cherries, brett, funk and caramel notes. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and average carb. Sour aroma that ends up dry and tart. A great Kriek.
