4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
2005 Vintage - 375 ml. sampled @ Kulminator - hazy raspberry coloured, some white lacing - nose is going towards cherry more than kriek, tart but with a fruit sweet edge, nice sourness underneath - taste is good, going fruitier side rather than the more thinned and sour side, some softer fruits, light cellar, light vinegar, light wood - lovely very light syrup body - De Cam is good - this is good stuff - should revisit this one - wonder if aging upped this one a bit

Great example of a gueuze kriek. Intensely sour, with a nice touch of the cherries. Very good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Corked 0.375l bottle, the 2005 version from trade with BelgBeerGeek. Huge thanks Vincent! This is a really deep dark purple, almost blood orange purple one and it had a small kinda bubbly pinkish head that after a while fades in to a islandy and sidesticking film. My, the nose is just so extremely deep, rich and intense! Filled with dark black cherries, concrete cellar floor, wood, grass and even some traces of vanilla. This is the arch example of how a cherrylambic should smell. In the taste it has this really comfortable cherry sourness that I just love. Itís not to extreme on the carbonation, not flat just really soft and it feels thick and near oily in the mouth. So much flavor going on here. Itís almost as if the cherries are sweet and all the elements around the cherries are bretted and lemon sour. Cause it is a bit like licking a not to sour lemon this. A soft grassy thing also in between all that lovely tart sourness. World class all the way. Huge thanks Vincent! 04.10.2013

75CL bottle sampled at Ebenezers Ruby red
Almost no nose
Earthy. Not too sour. Kriek at the finish. But nothing mind blowing. I think itís a little too earthy for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
July 5, 2013 - bottle shared by Brett. Reddish pour with limited head. Aroma and taste of sour cherry. Taste had a bit of vinegar that was not a good thing. This was a 2009 bottle while the others were 2012 so that may have had something to do with it.
