4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at Moeder Lambic (Fontainas)
Pours a beautiful reddish pink with a huge pink head.
The aroma is lots of sour cherry and yogurt. There is some resemblance to the Italian sour cherry jam I have in the fridge at home. The beer smells mildly funky.
The flavor is sour and yogurt. A tad briney with plenty of cherry flavor both in the fruity and sour way.
Quite different from the bottled Kriek.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Moeder Lambic. Pour is transparent ruby red with a dark pink head and tight bubbles the sit forever. The nose is very singular, huge cherries and little else. Light dusty notes try to hit you up front but are faded by huge ripe cherries. The taste has a bit more, notes of oak and a faint dustiness. These flavors are again overpowered by a huge ripe cherry and moderate sourness. The body is light and pretty soft on the palate with a lively prickly carbnatoin throughout and a rather dry finish. Very tasty and easy to drink but a touch singular.

Cherry red, go figure. Little head which disappears quickly. Pungent sweaty aroma and a sour/tart taste.

Draught @ Moeder Lambic pouring up opaque rosy deep red with tall impressive pink head. The aroma has sweet ripe cherry notes rolling around with an undercurrent of yeasty tartness and faint acidity. The taste starts with a rush of smooth tartness that quickly ratchets up into more tartness and growing puckering acidity and tart cherry and cherry skins heading into the finish. At the finish and into the after taste mild notes of sort of yeasty slightly moldy citrus funk linger on the palate.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas a few weeks ago during our trip to Belgium. Served in a Cantillon tulip. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a beautiful bright, bright red with an everlasting white pink head. Once that eventually fades, there is loads of lacing. The nose brings forward some restrained funk and loads of fresh, tart cherries. Really impressive. Good acidity coming throughout plus strong cherry flavor and a light tartness. Lactic acid throughout. Light-medium body with moderate carbonation. Super-smooth and uber-enjoyable.
