4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 (05/08/2011) draft@Chez Moeder Lambic: crimson head with an extremely lasting pink head, smell is that of sour cherries, taste starts out with mainly acidic & some slightly sour cherries and is followed by a surprising almost like sweet but not quite yet there cherry flavour, very different from the normal version, much better than the regular one on tap but slightly below an aged bottle of the regular one, either way this is an amazing beer///// draft@WoSF 2011: less impressive than the Chez Moeder Lambic one, seems a lot yonger, flat, no head, bit one dimensional & acidic, still very good but not as mindblowing, rating is for the Chez Moeder one ////////////// Noting that the one @ Chez Moeder Lambic is a different beer, more kriek, I think 300 gram if I am not wrong, fruitier + faint cinnamon note. Really, really good stuff. Both are great, prefer the Moeder one. /////////////////// Have had it many, many times on draft since original notes. Many times at Moeder & several times @ brewery. 4.8 -> 4.9 for this one, rating the Moeder version.

Clear ruby red coloured body with a thick, one centimetre tall pink head - absolutely perfect looking. Pungent sour aroma with a bit of sweet notes. Light-bodied; Very very mild sour tastes with some cherry flavours, a lot of sour notes and a bit of bubbles and a nice mild sweetness. Aftertaste shows some of the sour lambic qualities and a good mild kriek. Overall, a nice beer for sure, mild compared to the normal kriek, but a good finishing beer after a nice evening out. Definitely glad to sample this beer, especially a few kilometres from the source. I sampled this beer on draught as 25 cL from Chez Moeder Lambic Fontinas in Bruxelles, Belgium on 01-January-2011 for €4,00.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas.
Couleur rougeâtre, col rosé.
Arôme, qu’en dire de cet arôme? Enivrant, on y note tous les aspects de la cerise utilisé dans son entièreté. Le tout laisse échapper cette aigreur des cerises, côté du lambic mélangé qui rajoute une fraicheur.
En comparaison, j’ai trouvé le nez juste en dessous de celui de la Lou Pepe Kriek.
En bouche, on y retrouve un superbe lambic qui capture tout le goût de la cerise. Une aigreur se dégage et se mélange à cette macération et fermentation spontanée des cerises. Les noyaux donnent une touche d’épice allant vers la cannelle pour un léger picotement en bouche.

Had on tap at Moeder. Comes a slight cloudy pinkish hue with minimal, if at all, head. Smell tart and cherry-ish. Tastes the same, wonderful. If they didn’t have so many other beers to try I would have gotten this one all night. It is slightly more tart than the blended kriek, but is quite a bit better in my opinion.

La mia Kriek preferita, una delle mie Cantillon preferite. Complessissima, ma incredibilmente facile da bere. é gustosa, è dissetante, penso che possa essere uno dei migliori aperitivi possibili. Grandiosa.

Cask@Moeder Lambic Fontainas as Cuvee Moeder
Deep ruby color, pinky head. "Overriped" cherry aroma. Cherry, candy, fruityness in the flavor. Soft palate. Feels less tart than the normal version, but nice lingering tartness in the aftertaste. Cherry nectar!

[3324-20100809] Tap. Huge buckets of fresh sweet cherries in the aroma with mild barrel notes. Hazy, dark bright red body with a long-lasting foamy pink head. Tart cherry flavour up front followed by mellow tart yeast and wood notes with a sweet lingering yeast after. Medium body is cumulatively sour. Delicious, very nice.
