4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas.
Couleur rougeâtre, col rosé.
Arôme, qu’en dire de cet arôme? Enivrant, on y note tous les aspects de la cerise utilisé dans son entièreté. Le tout laisse échapper cette aigreur des cerises, côté du lambic mélangé qui rajoute une fraicheur.
En comparaison, j’ai trouvé le nez juste en dessous de celui de la Lou Pepe Kriek.
En bouche, on y retrouve un superbe lambic qui capture tout le goût de la cerise. Une aigreur se dégage et se mélange à cette macération et fermentation spontanée des cerises. Les noyaux donnent une touche d’épice allant vers la cannelle pour un léger picotement en bouche.

From tap at Moeder Lambic as Cuvee Moeder Lambic. Pours hazy dark red with a huge, creamy and lasting pink head. Aroma is smooth and crisp cherry. Dry, inbetween acidic and sweet - smooth. Light sweet cherry fruity. Mild acidic and lingering fruity. Slight almondish. Crisp fruity finish.

Had on tap at Moeder. Comes a slight cloudy pinkish hue with minimal, if at all, head. Smell tart and cherry-ish. Tastes the same, wonderful. If they didn’t have so many other beers to try I would have gotten this one all night. It is slightly more tart than the blended kriek, but is quite a bit better in my opinion.

La mia Kriek preferita, una delle mie Cantillon preferite. Complessissima, ma incredibilmente facile da bere. é gustosa, è dissetante, penso che possa essere uno dei migliori aperitivi possibili. Grandiosa.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask@Moeder Lambic Fontainas as Cuvee Moeder
Deep ruby color, pinky head. "Overriped" cherry aroma. Cherry, candy, fruityness in the flavor. Soft palate. Feels less tart than the normal version, but nice lingering tartness in the aftertaste. Cherry nectar!

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[3324-20100809] Tap. Huge buckets of fresh sweet cherries in the aroma with mild barrel notes. Hazy, dark bright red body with a long-lasting foamy pink head. Tart cherry flavour up front followed by mellow tart yeast and wood notes with a sweet lingering yeast after. Medium body is cumulatively sour. Delicious, very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
At Moeder Lambic as "Cuvee Moeder." Red with pink head. Nose very sour and ctirusy. Taste fruit, tangy and very bitter. Not very sweet but quite tasty. Enjoyed it.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tap @Moeder Fontainas and @ The Dome. My God, this is the ultimate kriek experience!! Smells like tons of fresh cherries squeezed in some funky wood. The flavour is oustanding, very elegant for being a Cantillon (don’t get this wrong), massive sweet and sour cherry blast.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2010 [9/22/10] Draught at Moeder Lambic Fontainas in Brussels. As Cuvee Moeder. Very dark red with a big bubbly pink head. Sour cherries aroma with some barnyard, citric notes and hints of leather. Very sour flavor with cherries, lemon and oak. Silky mouthfeel.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Cuvee Moeder Version at Moeder Lambic Fontainas.
A: Dark ruby red body. Large pinkish head consisting of millions of tightly packed bubbles. Slowly cascaded leaving behind film like lacing.
S: Massive cherry blast. Sweet, sour and tart. A little bit of musty oak.
T: Like the nose the cherries here are incredibly dynamic with sweet, sour and tart notes sharing the stage. Oak is here as well as a light musty funk.
M: Velvety with medium carbonation. Refreshingly clean. Nice tantalizing sourness in the finish.
O: A very nice kriek which truly shows off all the cherries that were packed into this one. Unlike the lou pepe kriek which is quite juice like, this one has a little bit more of a zip to it that is quite nice.
Monk’s Cuvee Version (6 glasses consumed over a week at Monk’s... I’m greedy.)
A: Deep blood red. The clarity varied between the glasses that I had. Earlier glasses had some clarity, but they became increasingly less transparent. Very thin pinkish skim. Quickly recedes, minimal lacing.
S: Dank sour cherries and a bit of funky oak. Nowhere near as complex as what was to come...
T: Amazingly cherries, bold tartness, sharp acidity, and a nice little puckering. Also present is a dash of citric notes, funk, leather, and oak. Very assertive, but not overwhelming.
M: Low, but not non-existent carbonation. Velvety on the tongue. Medium-light bodied. Immensely refreshing. Wish I had a cask of it in my house to pour myself 4 oz before heading to work every morning.
O: The different Cantillon krieks serve different purposes. The regular is mind melting sour, the lou pepe is bright and juicy, and this, like the Cuvee Moeder kriek, is packed with complexity. Sad that this one might not be around for a while.
