rlgk (10119) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2011
Cask at Chez Moeder Lambic Saint Gilles, Brussels. Named Cantillon Kriek Cuvee Moeder Lambic. Red/purple beer with a white head. Sour cherry aroma, rubber and grapefruit. Lovely cherry flavor, you can really taste the real cherries, and still its sour and bitter. Rubber notes, sourish, fruity, some grapefruit, some wet grass. Wonderful beer!

My 4000th rating! Cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels. This milestone was a long time coming but it’s finally here, and for me, this beer is a perfect choice for it: It’s my first time in Belgium, celebrating my 10 year wedding anniversary with my wife, at a great bar, drinking a beer from one of my favourite breweries and it’s made special for this place -- to me it’s a no-brainer. Right, here goes: Pours a gorgeous dark pinkish-red with a large lasting fluffy light-pink head. Lovely aroma of tart cherries, spices, yeast, some wood and a hint of sweetness. Flavour: Yum, so delicious! Lots of tart cherries along with some wood, lemon citrus, light spices and a nice tart finish. Medium bodied. A spectacular beer, the locals are incredibly lucky to be able to drink this on cask regularly -- it was an amazing treat.

prawlie (1110) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2011
Bottle at the Delerium Cafe in Brussels. Light red/brown with short lived head after a vibrant burst when poured. Smells very lambic. Very sour. Gets easier to drink after a couple of swigs.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Dark red-purple, small bubbled pink head. Cheesy soft cherry nose, medicinal and a bit spicy in cinnamon. Flavor is very sweet light rubber and dust leading at the front and followed by cherry at the mid, which becomes rindy in the finish. Low carbonation, lightly stinging bitterness. Overall it’s too sweet and uncarbonated, though a ton of the cherry flesh is captured in the flavor, particularly the mid-palate.

Countbeer (4323) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2011
Draught: Vast pink head on top of a darker pink rose beer. Smell yeast, cheese, red fruit, cherries and a hint of nuts. Taste is a lovely mix of cheese, cherries, hint of other red fruit, yeast, something yoghurt a like, barnyard, light sweet, some wood and herbs. Lovely sour fruity aftertaste. Low carbo, full body, soft mouthfeel and a watery texture.

Martinus (2744) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2011
Quite hazy cherry red colour, no carbonation, no head. Aroma pronounced fresh cherry with fruity cantillon lambic background. Some almond / cherry stone touches. Flavour is quite sweet fresh cherry, very pleasant fresh cherry. Well balanced tartness. Lingering cherry in the finish. Reminded me of early summers eating fresh krieken at my grandmothers place when I was young. Very nice, enjoyable spring beer.
(27 May 2011. Glass at the brewery. Very young kriekenlambik, with thanks to Dan Ashley and friends for sharing)

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 30, 2011
Säuerlicher marmeladenantrunk, der insgesamt wässrig wirkt. Durchaus ausgewogen und stimmig, zum Ende auch wieder aromatischer. Eine im Antrunk vorhandene hintergründige Süße verschwindet zum Ende wieder. /10/11/11//10

On draft at Moeder Lambic, Brussels. Slightly hazy red pour with lasting pink head. Aroma of spur cherries and almonds. Expected sour cherry flavor but with an unexpected sweetness balancing it off.
