4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, pours a cloudy opaque dark pink with a big pink head. Aroma of potent cherries, moderate funk and a touch of sweetness. Flavour of potent juicy cherries, some barnyard funk coming through, and more juicy cherries. Super potent, with not really any sweetness. Beautiful palate, with a wonderfully potent cherry character. Even better than the regular Kriek.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught @ Moeder Lambic St Gilles. The pour’s deep hazy red with a massive pink head. The nose is of sweet bakery bread, raspberry tart. Grape and mashed cherry. Honeyed fruit and fresh rain-swept field. Very inviting. The taste is pillowy sweet marshmallow spread. Delightfully vibrant sweet cherries. Only a hint of clean acidic tartness in the finish. It’s just a pleasure to drink such a simple, delicious set of flavors. Soft, pillowy mouthfeel. Overall, absolutely great.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed on tap at Moerder Lambic in Brussels, Belgium at the start of what was a pretty crazy night. Appearance is a bright pink / ruby hue with a rich, bubbly head. Aroma of light cheese, cherries, wild yeast, smells delicate. Taste is good, at first the sourness is abundant but it settles down quite a bit. Rather live carbonation, tastes somewhat like a lightly flattened cherry 7UP. Pretty damn good stuff.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazed but bright red pour with a tall pink head. Fresh fruit/cherry aroma with a nice sweetness. Lactic tartness with nice lemon zest and green apple notes, some mild straw and grass, too. Overwhelming cherry flavor which gives a nice acidity as well as sweetness. Some lemon tartness, a bit of yeast, grass, yogurt, and must. A touch of sugar/candy, and a nice balance to it.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. My first stop upon arrival in Belgium. This actually happened.
To say this beer is gorgeous is an understatement. A stunning ruby hue that sits underneath an everlasting pillow of lavender foam (picture forthcoming).
The smell is wonderful and inviting, with that distinguishable and inimitable cantillon scent. Lots of fresh cherries lead the way, with additional notes of yeast, tartness, funk.
The flavor takes it up a notch. Sweet and sour cherries. So fresh and delicious. Just teeming with cherries and cherry juice. Amazing.
The mouthfeel is one of the best I have ever experienced in a beer of any style. Creamy and silky smooth. Each sip lingers on the palate for several minutes.
I only made it to this establishment once, but I stayed for several hours and was able to enjoy a few pours of this. Well worth the trip. Cantillon is my favorite brewery, and this beer was well worth the effort.
