Fresh sour cherries (krieken) in two year old Lambiek. We use approximately 300 gr cherries for 1 liter Kriek. The second fermentation in the bottle is obtained through addition of a liqueur, made with beer and saccharose.

Cantillon Lou Pepe 2007 Bottled in 2009. I’ve been waiting for a reason to crack this special brew and an upcoming trip to it’s birthplace, Belgium, as well as celebrating my 4th Wedding Anniversary seemed to fit the bill. The aroma once this bottle was uncorked was fantastic - rich juicy cherry, tannic barrel caracter & a bit misty and maraschino cherries candy as well. Deep red with a fizzy pink head. Light bodied with an effervescent mouthfeel. The taste is sour, tart cherry at first, mouth-puckering, some barrel and the finish is remarkably sweet. This is a kick ass beer that deserves the praise heaped on it. Awesome.

Appearance is a WTF. The most beautiful pink you can imagine. Head is nice and stable. Aroma is a lot of funk. Cherrries are to me less pronounced. Mouthfeel is oily & smooth. Taste is cherry in your face, oaky and barnyard. The oily charachter and good balance between the diffferent acidities make this a wonderful beer.

Dogbrick (10424) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Sample from 2012 bottle at Tomahawk Warrior’s First Birthday party on 06/06/2015: Pours a deep ruby red color with a medium pinkish-white head that evaporates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of sour cherries, funky yeast and malt. Light-bodied with a tart cherry character and notes of yeast, doughy malt and berries. The finish is moderately tart with a sour cherry aftertaste. Really good all around.

Ratpatrol1019 (70) - Palm desert, California, USA - JUN 11, 2015
Tons of cherries and tart pear aroma. Excellent there. Taste cherries, yet somewhat cherry skittle and syrup. Overall really good beer would like some more tartness and dryness to balance this out. Still a 4 in my opinion.

Bottle. Dark ruby with a thick pinkish head. Dominated by sour cherry, very natural tasting and not too jammy. Musty funk present throughout. Fairly acidic but not overwhelming. Nice full body. Excellent.

(Cantillon Lou Pepe Pure Kriek) Bottle 750 ml at home, vintage 2009, served into a Cantillon taster, ABV 5% Deep and bright red colour on a clear body, one finger of pinkish head with good retention, minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherries,cork, wood, light musk, smells pretty good! Tastes great too, lots of cherries, light wood, nice funky character, little musk, slightly sour. Medium thin body with good carbonatiion, just a bit tart on the palate. Just great!
