3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 20, 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!

Nyupptappad direkt från lagringsfat@Cantillon bryggeri. Ljusröd vätska med lätt skumkrona. Tydliga körsbärsaromer med en lätt jordkällardoft. Smakar definitivt surkörsbär. Kärv och salivförintande munkänsla.

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
