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.
(Translated from the bottle by Martinus)

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2005
1999: A wonderful lambic. The nose is fruity with the taste being sour almost like a good vinegar. Fruity on the palate as well as cherry is tasted in the finish along with an acidic bite. Very good.

1999 Vintage. Poured a reddish color with a reddish/pinkish head. Fruity aromas and tastes. Sour cherries. Grapes. Tart. Acidic. Puckering. This was a very good lambic (the best Iíve had to date so far). Iíll have to get another bottle of this one

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - JAN 1, 2005
750ml 2001 bottle from beers of europe. Stunning bright red/purple colour. Medium dissipating head. Aroma of Cherry fruit and stone, lemons and apples on top of Cantillonís house aroma. Acidic fruit taste with Cherries lower in the mix than with the aroma. Long acidic finish. Gorgeous.

TChrome (1432) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Georgeous ruby red color with a big fizzy purple head that totally dissipates. Aroma is sour vinegar, wet wood, dust. and a slight hint of fruitiness. Flavor is sour, chalk, wheat, cherries with no sweetness, mouth puckering and very refreshing. Happy New Year!!!

SimonB (66) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - DEC 1, 2004
Cherry red body, pink small head, virtually no lacing, fully diminishing. Dark (black) cherry aroma as weel as sweetness and sourness. Sour cherry and acidic flavors of soft complexity. Astringent mouthfeel (tart and sour), soft carbonation. Great beer. Sampled at MartinTís place with other RateBeerians for the "Montrealís Voyager Par Les Papillesí first tasting session".

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - NOV 29, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2008 Bottle. Big old sour aroma. Cherry like color. White head. Very complex flavoring. Tart and sour for sure, pleasantly fruity.
2003 bottle consumed Dec. 07. Beautiful pinkish red color with a pink head. Wonderfully clear, translucent. Aroma seems strong on the barny side of things, not a ton of acid noted in nose, light cherry fruit. Light bodied, fair carbonation, perhaps fading with age. Lightly tart initially, somewhat less than what most Cantillon products seem to me. Light fruit, mousy/barny brett seems more dominant in taste also. Nice!

Pours an opaque red color with a pink head. Dusty aroma of cherries. Flavor of cherries, itís also astringent and acid. Medium body, lively carbonation, powdery, dusty texture. Great stuff, smooth yet assertive.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2004
2001. Sampled at marinaro500ís post-Thanksgiving gathering, provided by the host. My favorite lambic of the evening. Hazy red body with orangish highlights, thin off-white head. Sour funky and musty aroma with cherry skin and woody notes. Extremely sour cherries finish the woody, musty, balsamic vinegaresque body. The sourness is of that outstanding, biting nature that reminds me of all those Tearjerker and Crybaby gumballs back in the day. Heavy tartness with no let-up. Deeelish!

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - NOV 23, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2004 99í vintage- Pours a dark reddish cloudy color. Aroma of "barnyard" yeast, and cherries. Flavor is sour sour cherries, citrus and hops. Palate is smooth and astringent. A very interesting brew, my first lambic. Thanks to Heemer for sharing this exceptional brew.
