COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2010 NOTE: This rating is for the special CUVÉE MODER LAMBIC version. Exclusive to both Moder Lambic locations. I later confirmed with Cantillon brewer that it is like their Kriekenlambik except that they use a lot more cherries for this version, almost twice as much.
In short: A superb cherry beer with a mild funky and acidic edge
How: Hand-pumped Moeder Lambic Saint-Gilles and at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels Belgium.
The look: Dark red body topped by a large long-lasting pink head
In long: Strong nose of fresh cherries with only a tiny bit of funk. This smells a lot more like a cherry fruit beer than a lambic cherry. Taste is simple but how effective! Lots and lots of fresh cherries with a mild dry acidic bite in the finish. A bit of funk. Maybe some grapes in there too. Unlike most fruit cantillons the lambic is not the main attraction here. They use so much cherries for this special Cuvée Moeder Lambic version that the beer is more like a cherry beer than a lambic-cherry. With the difference that the lambic does make the beer dryer and a little acidic. Probably my favourite cherry beer ever. I like it as much as a fresh Lou Pepe Kriek. I had the regular Kriekenlambik at Cantillon. It is good but I much this version. If you are hoping for a lambic-cherry you might be a bit disappointed but if you look at it as a cherry beer it is simply mind blowing. What an unexpected surprise. They say nice things always happen to those who least expect it. Seems to be true. I’ve been expecting to get beaten up in a dark alley. For so many reasons.

hopscotch (9893) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Bottle…Hazy raspberry-colored ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, pinkish head. The aroma is funky, earthy and very acidic. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Sour, funky, fruity flavor with mild hop and yeast bitterness. Very tart, semi-dry finish.

GodOfThunder (1248) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2010 On cask, Kriek Moeder Lambic. Said to be 20% Schaerbeekse cherries blended with other cherries. Pours a cloudy red with a pink head. Amazing aroma of coconut, cherries, vanilla, almonds, other spices and a little tartness. Flavor mimics, with almonds and coconut really pushing through the cherries. Extreme complexity in sweetness, tartness and even mouthfeel. Just a touch of sour, a touch of tart, a touch of sweetness and a touch of earthiness. Smooth as can be, and super easy drinking. This beer rocks. The odd coconut flavors really make it special. Reminds me of some kind of coconut, almond and cherry butter cookie. Very fresh and possibly the most memorable beer I’ve ever had. I will remember this one for ages. Fantastic.

In The Rake. Great looking electric red in the glass. Fantastic balance of sour and dry peppery hops with just enough sweetness. Slightly woody, cherry pips, ripe fruit, funk and jazz. A rare treat!

A stunning Cantillon beer at the Rake! Great work by the Rake to give us TWO Cantillons in the space of a few months. I’m pretty gobsmacked! I consumed this with Ang with the presance of Rich and Glyn. Great company; fantastic beer. Dark red texture is stunning. So well balanced. Very long finish. Feel like my lambic palete has turned full circle. Great work in under a year. I’d pair this wih a gateaux from the black forest or some dark chocolate. Thanks Tom for fantasitc conditioning.
