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.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2013
75 cl. Bottle bought at Cantillon. Vintage 2004. Huge off-white frothy head that mostly lasted. Cloudy to muddy dark reddish color. Aroma of strong cherry, leather, almond, citrus, vinegar, sour sweet and woody notes. Over the palate came strong sour and wood like notes with cherry and some fruitiness. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated sour with some counter sweetness. Lingering sour fruity finish. Seems more smooth with age. A lovely Lambic!

2008 vintage. First pour is a violet or purple color with small right of head. Nose is cherry, wild funky yeast and fruit sugar. Flavor is mostly the same as the nose with the addition of some fresh berry jam. The finish is sweet without any acidic notes anywhere. Tart yet very smooth and real easy to drink. The texture is slightly syrupy. Crazy amounts of cherries. Thanks to Adam Jackson for the bottle share!
