gnoff (7975) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2011
Draught at Moeder Lambic, Brussels, for Zwanze Day 2011 as well as the Moeder vs Stone beer festival. Sampled on September 17, 2011
As "Kriek Cantillon Cuvée Moeders".
Hazy rhubarb red color, lasting bubbly pink head. A manly beer indeed! Sweet, cherry pip, almond scent. A bit thin, sour, acidic, metallic, berry, cherry peel taste. Thin mouthfeel. No hop bitterness, but you get chery skin tartness.

Benzai (8910) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2011

fiulijn (15227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2011
Hand pump at Moeder Lambic, Fontainas
Cloudy dark ruby color, with pink head. Mild aroma of cherry pits and cherry, and not sour. Smooth mouthfeel, with almost no carbonation; the Lambic character is soft here, with strong cherry presence (but no sweetness); the cherries give a lot of astringency too, and a nice, dry, fruity touch; mild sourness. Very good.

shoulderbroken (2179) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 31, 2011
From cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pinky red with a big frothy pink head made of small bubbles. Aroma is naturaly massive cherry with lambic sourness. Extremely fruity taste, beautiful and the sourness really hits the back of the tongue. Lovely lingering cherry aftertaste. Without a doubt, a classic!

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 (1186) - 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 (3474) - 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.
