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.

(bottle) slightly hazy deep ruby colour with a frothy dark pink head. aroma of sour cherries, some chlorine and cinnamon, with lots of custard, cherry pie, brown sugar and cheesecake. flavour is rather mild and oaky, with more cherry pie and vanilla, some bubble gum, spring foliage and lemon juice in the dry finish. medium-bodied with lively carbonation.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2016 2013 bottle at Cantillon. Bloody ref color, mice pink head. Aroma of cherry cake, small notes of wine, barnyard. Taste is light to medium bitter, very strong flavor of cherries, almost cover up Lambic character. But very tasty beer.

Bottle at the brewery. Pours deep red, nice pink foam, flows slowly, quite viscous. Aroma has some fruit sweetness and cherries, a lot of cherries. Taste is a total cherry cake, sweet and sour, not so sweet actually. Cherries are coming out really pronounced, full of that fruity goodness, layered with tart background lambic flavours. I can totally understand why this has been rated as one of the best beers in Belgium, it is blowing my mind away.

Voor het eerst gedronken aan de brouwerij enkele weken geleden. Het bier zelf rook ontzettend goed maar de smaak vond ik veeleer plakkerig en kon mij eerlijk gezegd niet echt bekoren.

750mL bottle 2012, pours a dark ruby/purple with a large pink head. Effervescent aroma, dry cherry juice, oak, crisp yeast. Wow that cherry pops, tart yet sweet, no doubt off cherries, like eating fresh cherries and drinking lou pepe gueuze, sour, yeast, with mellowing oak. By and far the best kriek/ fruit beer I’ve ever had!
