COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dark pink with a good sized pink head. Aroma is cherry pie, cherry blossoms, cider vinegar, funk. Medium-full bodied, sweet on the palate with a subtle hint of sour, stylish finish. Taste is cherry pie, sour cherries, cider vinegar, cherry yoghurt. Definitely one of the most complex and tastiest krieks that I've had.

750 ml corked green bottle shared with Brenn79. Thanks Alen! 2008 vintage. Pours a gorgeous ruby red hue with a huge pink head with excellent retention. Aroma is strong in funk, firstly, followed by cherries (the flesh and the pits) and vinegar. Taste is tart cherries (8/10 on a sour scale), acidic, vinegar. Excellent lambic.

Backlog from a bottle tried at a beer tasting with Systembolaget 2011. Cherries, somewhat milder in it’s acidity than for say 3 Fon. Cederwood, some hay, spices and citrus.

Very excited to be able to try this beer with bmmillsy super generous beer buddy. Absolutely the most beautiful pink/red coloration -deep maroon. Foamy pink head dissipated quickly. Sour, cherry, vinegar, cherry licorice aroma. Always love to try a new limbic, but i am very thankful to try this hard to find beer. Light medium body and well carbonated. Not as sweet as a normal limbic, but the cherry lambic makes up for it with its sour hay-tart fruit.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2014 Bottle from Tipples. Awesome score here and had to leave work early to snag it. 2010 sticker poured into a tulip on February 15, 2014. Pours bright bright darkish red and totally clear. Bright pink fizzy one finger head on top and dissipates quickly. Aroma of lots of vinegar, tart cherries and cherry skins. Flavor is sour vinegar up front and then lots of cherry skins and tart but sweet cherries. The balance here is outstanding. Not medicinal at all, cherry is highlighted but not overpowering like the New Glarus cherry brew, and it comes together beautifully. A nice vanilla oak in the backdrop that really mellows this out. Juicy cherries but lightly dry finish. Medium light mouthfeel, full flavored, and big bubbly carbonation. While cherry isn’t my favorite in beer, this balances it as perfectly as possible. Very nice.

Esemplare Vintage, 2006. Semplicemente nettare divino, ambrosia, elisir della lunga vita. Un tale livello di perfezione lascia il bevitore adorante e attonito. Il gusto pieno e voluttuoso delle ciliegie scivola alla pefezione sull’acidità morbida e vellutata, che avvolge il palato esaltando le note fruttate e acetiche secondarie, lasciando nella bocca la sensazione di aver baciato una maestosa divinità femminile della birra. E infatti è proprio così.
