Hazed but bright red pour with a tall pink head. Fresh fruit/cherry aroma with a nice sweetness. Lactic tartness with nice lemon zest and green apple notes, some mild straw and grass, too. Overwhelming cherry flavor which gives a nice acidity as well as sweetness. Some lemon tartness, a bit of yeast, grass, yogurt, and must. A touch of sugar/candy, and a nice balance to it.

On cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. My first stop upon arrival in Belgium. This actually happened.
To say this beer is gorgeous is an understatement. A stunning ruby hue that sits underneath an everlasting pillow of lavender foam (picture forthcoming).
The smell is wonderful and inviting, with that distinguishable and inimitable cantillon scent. Lots of fresh cherries lead the way, with additional notes of yeast, tartness, funk.
The flavor takes it up a notch. Sweet and sour cherries. So fresh and delicious. Just teeming with cherries and cherry juice. Amazing.
The mouthfeel is one of the best I have ever experienced in a beer of any style. Creamy and silky smooth. Each sip lingers on the palate for several minutes.
I only made it to this establishment once, but I stayed for several hours and was able to enjoy a few pours of this. Well worth the trip. Cantillon is my favorite brewery, and this beer was well worth the effort.

Fruity, acidic nose with notes of cherries, almonds and a touch of wild yeast. Fruity, tart taste with cherries, almonds, red fruit and a dry finish with a refreshing acidity.

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.
