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.

(bottle, 2009) hazy ruby colour with a frothy pink head. aroma of sour cherries and vanilla, with lots of spring foliage, a hint of multivitamin juice, campfire embers and lemons. flavour is more cherries and lemon juice, again rather leafy, with a touch of walnuts and unripe mango in the rather tart finish. medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation.

Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Well carbonated, less cherry, very very sour, pinching palate. Very pure cherry though, borderline artificial.

Ik drink ontzettend graag Geuze, maar deze vond ik echt te zoet. Doet echt onder voor toppers zoals de Kriek van Cantillon en 3 Fonteinen.

29 Jan 2016, bottle. Bottled Jan 2009. Light scarlet/Ruby. Nose is insane! I’ve never had a sour beer like this. Actually my first beer from a blender. Nose is over ripe cherries and hints of sweet nail polish remover. Dry thin body and mildly fizzy. Wow. So much going on here. Mild, dry cherry sour, hints of nail polish, some barnyard funk and balsamic. Wow. So much fun. I’m sure the experience is blowing my mind.

Bottle. Dark red pour, with a pinkish head. Sweet cherries, sour, tart cherries, lemon, leather, light funk, hay, and fairly strong oak. Tasty.
