4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2008 "vintage" into tulip.
Aroma: Very sweet/sour cherries, vinegar, slightly latexy, swedish berries candy, wheat, flower bouquet...more complex than usual.
Appearance: Slightly hazy maroon color with a reddish head.
Taste: Quite sweet in comparison to the normal Kriek and a little less complex and wild. I think I prefer the other one for character but this has mellowed out considerably.
Palate: A little mouth-puckering but nothing horrible. Quite a heavy feel in the mouth, spritzy CO2.
Overall: A very interesting Lambic but a little too mellow for me. However, it is still very, very good. I wonder how a 10 year old bottle must taste....

2009 vintage Pours a beautiful deep red with a white head. Nose is acidic cherry, taste is puckeringly tart cherry. Not a sour guy, this didn’t change anything. Those around me who like the style seemed to enjoy it very much.

This one poured a Ruby red color with a pinkish head. Aroma was of cherry cough drops, cinnamon, and mild funk. Flavor was similar, dark cherry skin cinnamon character with underlying barnyard funk. Pretty good.

Draught at pikkulintu. Pours murky dark red with pink fluffy lacing head and a sour scent. First taste like an explosion of sour cherries also some marzipan, and perhaps some other berries also in taste. Nice rounded sweet and sour taste. Well balanced. Goes down really easy on this hot summer day.

Tap @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Pours a carmine red with a small, slightly pinkish head. Aroma is a lot of sour vinegar, cherry and berries. Taste follows along the same lines. Tart with vinegar and cherry as well as berries. Dry. Full with some carbonation. Just plain superb.
