ATTENTION! This is the unblended lambic with cherries, not the blended Cantillon Kriek. Normally this comes draught.

After having this on hand-pump at Moeder Lambic, I have to break my silence. This is just the most perfect expression of fruit lambic that I have ever had. A ridiculous amount of cherry character in the best way possible. Yes, there is sweetness but it is in perfect balance with the acidity unlike some other beers with this much cherry character. I appreciate that this is a variable thing but I think I had it in its most perfect form. On this night, I just couldn’t imagine another beverage in the world that I wanted to drink as much as this. I could have had a half-dozen more of these and sat in amazement if it weren’t already late when we arrived.

(On cask @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, July 24 2015) Pours hazy deep reddish oink with a pale pink cask head and a hint of lace. Aroma quite heavy on the sour cherry flesh with some skin, lactic yogurt drink, moist basement, mossy sort of wood make the funk undertone. Palate is quite bitingly sour with sour cherry flesh and lemon juice. More and more richness from the flesh builds to the finish, cherry skin too, reasonably woody, very restrained musty funk. A slight leafiness to the otherwise dry woody finish with acidity. Creamy medium full palate. The expression of the complete cherry is so nice in the unblended form, far superior to the blended kriek but a little shy of LPP Kriek.

On tap at Moeder. Light read, pinky head. Cherries throughout. Krieks will never be my cup of tea, but this is admittedly a nice one.

had this on several occasions, on tap at Moeder. Pours cloudy cherry red with a pretty big and stable light pink head. Aroma is highly funky and fruity, loads of cherries and raspberries. Zesty body, high on the sourness, not as much funk as the regular Kriek. Taste is a super fruity lambic, low carbonation. love it!

On tap at Moeder. Garnet pour with a pink head. Sour cherry and funk bouquet. Loads of sour cherries with wet grass, lemon zest, and vinegar backbeats. Hints of oak. Good body and mouthfeel.

Draft pour. Pours a bright red with a pink head. The aroma has bright cherry skins and sour cherry. Really delicious cherry pie filling taste. Medium body and medium carbonation.

King_Alex_II (790) - 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.

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!
