4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
9/VIII/16 - 75cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: n/a, bottled: 2009 (2016-819)
Very murky cloudy deep ruby red to purplish beer, small creamy pink to orange head. Lots of residue, both in the glass (it’s like freshly squeezed fruit juice!) and on top of the foam. Holy moly, how many cherries are in this bottle? :o Aroma: very fruity, krieken all the way! Funky wood notes, bit lemony. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: so much krieken! An overload of cherries, yet nothing sweet or artificial at all!! Little bitter, some tannins, soft acidity, some almonds. Aftertaste: wood notes, bit sourish, little bitter in the finish, shitload of cherries again. What a beer!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Dark red down color with very little head
Aroma: Rich red wine with prominent but not overwhelming cherry. A bit like cherry Robitussin.
Taste: Rich and chewy cherry malt with some cotton candy. Really pronounced oaky finish has some cotton candy
Overall: This was a 2016 so still many years for more complexity to develop. May be a bit too medicinal for some folks.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle@home. Small head. Purple. Moldy mouse cork aromas. Tart dry cork taste. Faint cherry and wood. This is not right compared to other rating. Taste like cork in a wine bottle.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 2009 vintage. Pours a deep cherry red body with a short-lived white head. Nose is red berries, stable funk, cherries, apple vinegar and hints of wood, hay and lemon juice. Taste is tart cherries up front, then an assault of lemon juice, apple vinegar and lactic sourness takes hold of the palate. In the back, cherry pits and dark fruity tones make themselves known. Medium to light body, dry finish, high carbonation. Amazing stuff, really mouth-puckering sour but with just enough cherry flavor to be an outstanding specimen of the kriek breed of sours.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle at home in Richmond to celebrate a new job. As ’De Oude Cam Exclusief Oude Kriek’, 6.5%, bottled Jan 2009. Thin red pour to form a purple cherry red, clear, sparkling beer with a brief pink head. Aroma is intense cherry, thin red wine like merlot, meaty, funk, a little swimming pool and dried out manure. A lovely balance between cherry and lambic sherbet dirtiness. Body is full, oily, soft carbonation. Taste is intense sour cherries, sherbet, cherry Tangfastics, red lemonade, lemon juice. Quenching fruits and not overly sour. Aftertaste just keeps going. Very indulgent. Fantastic.
