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

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.

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.

On cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours a brilliant shade of cloudy red with about a fingers worth of frothy pink head. Good head retention as i drink my glass. Nose is explosive cherry goodness and that dominates the olfactory senses. Much along the lines of Lou Pepe Kriek, only it seems that they use other cherries in addition to scharbeekse. Taste is heavily fresh cherry as well, some light backing lactic tartness, but it’s mainly just from the cherry. Light mouthfeel, light tartness, light acidity, and a long finish. Fantastic beer! I still probably prefer LPK just slightly, but this is right there.

Tap at Moeder Lambic St Gilles. Beautiful color. Amazing cherry taste, with lime/lemon flavors, a bit of vinegar Found it very bitter and loved it.

Frisk fruktig lukt med preg av malt, humle, bringebær, kirsebær, litt bærskal og gras. Frisk lett syrlig fruktig smak med preg av malt, humle, bærskal, friske bringebær, gras, kirsebær, syregras. Middels bitterhet som set litt. Veldig god.

Draft at Moeder Lambic, 09/30/2013. Earthy red pour, strawberry cream head, considerable retention. Aroma is fresh cherries, mild funk, yeasty, yet round, earthy vanilla with oak. Taste is dark sour cherry, juicy, not overly aggressive in tartness or acidity, lambic notes in the finish. Thin body, yet coats the tongue. Tasty.
