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

Habanero (3761) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2014
Tap. Clear red body with a small pink head. Aroma of sour cherries, brett, funk and caramel notes. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and average carb. Sour aroma that ends up dry and tart. A great Kriek.

Verre de 25 cl, d’un cask au Moeder Lambic St-Gilles. Arômes très intenses de cerises fraîches. Robe rouge et limpide, effervescence faible et belle mousse rose. En bouche, le lambic rappelant les agrumes réussit à percer au travers d’une tonne de cerises fraîches. Finale plutôt lactique d’intensité moyenne. Très bon, même si je crois que j’ai très légèrement préféré la version aux framboises.

Poured from bottle into sample glass (Kriek-off): Pours cloudy pink / red with a decent pink head. Aroma is funk and cherries. Taste is cranberry, tart, cherries... a bit medicinal. Medium body, decent carbonation.

VDuquerroux (1068) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 15, 2014
On tap, 25cL. @Moeder St Gilles, Brussels. An unclear garnet-colored beer with a medium thin pink head. Medium persistence. After several minutes, a ring foam is still present. Aroma of wood, cherry, lactic acid, vinegar. First neutral, then powerful sour note that leaves on sour waves from medium to heavy. Very dry. Light body, thin texture, flat carbonation, long sour finish with a cherry aroma. Overall, this one made me think of the Jonge lambic : truely beautiful wild landscape, very sour and dry. A bit extreme for me. I prefer the tamed version !

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

Nocturne (1674) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
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.
