Cask @ Moeder. tarter and with more acidity than the frambo but still as easy drinking. flavors of peppery cherries, dark cherry skins and wood

Cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels. Hazy red with a fluffy light pink head. Tart cherry fruit but not anything like the same level of oak and vinousness as the regular kriek. Drying finish. This really hits the spot and I prefer it slightly over the cask frambozenlambik.

Hand-pump at Moeder Lambic in 2012 while visiting with Joe. Fresh fruit on the nose, a tangy tart and dusty aroma becomes reality as you take the first sip. Bright and almost fluorescent glow from this in the tulip, minimal head retention and moderate lacing. Strong, young bright fruit taste with a dry barnyard finish. Interesting to try next to all the cask offerings at Moeder!

Cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Deep hazy red pour with frothy pink head. Aroma of tart cherries, quite fruity, a lot of Cantillon funk in this one, wet hay, light cheesy notes, quite lactic. Taste is very tart, fruity and lactic tartness (sour cherries and plain yoghurt), light grassy herbal notes as well. Palate is dry, light mineral carbonation. I like it a lot despite its relative harshness, the framboise is much easier drinking.

Dark red color, no head. Aroma cherry, sweet. Medium body. Taste bit woody, cherries, fruity, sourness but this is no too sour. Refreshing drinkable.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 Cask @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas (Bruxelles). Deep and hazy pinkish red with a medium fully lasting pink head and little lacing. Aroma... wow! A burst of cherries mainly, but also raspberries and some leafy notes. Lambic character is more present than in the Frambozenlabik. There’s some lactic notes too and fresh cherries again. Taste is also dominated by bright and fresh cherries along some raspberries, fruit sweetness, hints of barnyard and light/moderate tartness, some leafy notes and wood. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Slightly dry finish. That’s how you showcase the fruits in a lambic... so tasty and fruity. Very good!

At Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Thx Dylan. APPEARANCE: light clouded deep red beer, no foam. NOSE: kriek, sour, very nice in general. TASTE: very very sour, but quite fresh and fruity still. Somewhat sweet even underneath all the sourness. Very good!

Tap at Akkurat, courtesy of bartender as a closing to our night. It pours a hazy ruby colour with a small pinkish head. Aroma is ripe cherries and little funky complexity. Very cherry forward. Taste is mildly acidic and still has some sweetness from the fruits. Again, pretty straight on cherries. Light in body with soft carbonation. Overall, would make for a fantastic happy hour drink but lacking the complexity of the kriek. Resembles the Intense Red for how straightforward the cherries are in this one.
