4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep purple from the 2016 bottle with minimal ring of bubbly pink head. Aroma of strong acidity, tart cherry fruitiness, and a hint of funk. Taste is funk up front, horsey weird, then a big fruitiness that lends to acidity, but it finishes quickly. Could use a bit more time for refermentation in the bottle, but it’s really good.

Bottle shared by Huhzubendah. Not sure the vintage. Thanks Matthew! Poured a really dark ruby red color with a small fizzy pink head. Funky, really dusty. Flavor is a ton of cherry. Bitter cherry pits, light Kalamata olive? That part was a bit strange. I don’t want to blame the food I was eating, but it might have been that. Really nice!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2009 De Cam Kriek Lambiek paired with a bowl of cherries. Will this be cherry overkill? Let's find out!
This lambic pours a deep mauve, kind of purple brown with a fuzzy pink head they vanished fast.
The aroma is incredibly aceitic vinegar cherry with some acidity and barrel woodsiness.
The taste is tart, oaky, nutty, cherry, vinegar, some sweetness and acidity with a dry finish.
The fresh cherry sweetness, cuts through the vinegar by accentuates the acidic nature of the finish. I think I served it a tad too warm so I've got more chilling in the fridge or it may be at an odd moment in it's cella ring evolution.
