Pours a beautiful, seductive, dark red. A one-finger pinkish-red head forms and quickly dissipates. Fresh cherry jam. Candied lemon. Funktastic basement. Tart lemon is dominant. Cherry flavor is underlying and very subtle. Refreshing, but relatively sour. Medium-bodied. Low carb. Very drinkable despite it’s sourness. It’s like a tart lemonade with a hint of cherry juice added. Not bad, but not mind blowing.

Väldigt röd färg utan något skum. Doftar syrligt och massor med körsbär! Väldigt syrlig smak med mycket körsbär och ek. Riktigt bra lambic!

0.75L bottle from Belgian e-shop Pours medium to deep red with small to average head, dissipates quickly. Aroma is cherry, light lactic tartness, hints of funkiness, framboise, the cherry part of the aroma is very complicated and amazing, some cherry marmalade too. Maybe they use both fresh fruit and cherry concentrate? Can’t wait to taste this brew! Quite tart but mainly lactic tartness, unripe cherry, very light notes of funkiness, very nice but not as complex as the aroma. Aftertaste has quite strong but smooth tartness with some light earthy notes. One of the best Kriek, cheers!

Vestergaard (635) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle thanks to Bursprak! Pours a deep red with a pink, short lasting head. Aroma has vinegar, tart cidric fruit, but only hints of cherry. Taste has some funk, is very sour. Cherry stone bitterness in the end. Vinegar, but again fairly little, but deep dark cherry. As it gets some heat you get more though, and more oak and vanilla as well. Medium carbonation and sharp, sour burning body.

Mandag i annen ruler! Hvor ellers får man så mange gode øl i passelige doseringer på en kveld? Etter fine humle- og maltopplevelser fikk vi Oud Beersel Framboise og tenkte at her er Nirvana. Men nå viste det seg at vi bare hadde stått ved porten. Champagenkorken vippes (nesten) lydløst av , der er ikke antydning til skum i glasset men nesegrevet fylles av en intens kirsebæraroma. En vidunderlig sur syrlighet med astringent ettersmak gjør bildet komplett. Når man først har fått smaken på lammbic kan man like gjerne flytte til Belgia.

Beerconnaiseur (164) - BELGIUM - JAN 27, 2015
75cl bottled in 2009. Brewer told me it can also be a 2010 or 2011 batch, as they use the same labels out of cost efficiency. Pours deep burgundy red with little head, fades quickly. Aroma is subtle, cherries, barnyard, citrus, cheese. Tart with an acidic touch. Full on cherry flavour, pretty sirupy, medium carbonation. Beautiful zesty and earthy aftertaste that lingers on the tastebuds. Softer than fresh because of the aged lambic.
