Very beautiful rubin red body with an orange edge, very light pink head; Beautiful nose with lots of sour and ripe cherry as well as cherry pit, behind it there is a very special acidy aroma that I do not recognize from anywhere, there is also cedar, oak and malt; The body has some fill and is super sour, small amount of sharp tickling carbonation; It finishes very dry and super acidy/ sour, the aromas are very sour as unripe cherry, unripe apples, very late in the finish there is a very small amount of warmer notes of cherry pit.

I was sure I talked about this one before, it seems I haven’t written all of them down at the festivals. This si excellent Kriek beer. IT is not a Lambic for the reasons We all know.

[Bottled at Vinens Verden]
Wow. A great flamish sour kriek. No too much sweetness but well balanced with the geueze taste.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy magenta pour with 1-finger pink head. Aroma of strong tart cherries, some peaty woodsy malt, and some oaky funk. The flavor is mostly tart cherries, with some boggy, peaty malt notes. Not as tart as Cantllon’s offerings, but much less sweet than the New Glarus Red. I’ll bet a mix of 2 parts Cantillon kriek with 3 parts New Glarus would give an approximation of this beer. At any rate, it is rock solid.

Bottle. Cherry is in good blance with the beer in this fluidum, but it is more like a lambic.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2009 Catford Beer Festival. Shared a bottle with Harrisoni. First sample poured carefully without sediment. Red coloured with a pink head. Sharp, fruity aroma with lots of woody notes, spice and pepper. To taste there is lots of pleasing dryness, tart cherry character, oak and mostly sour. Rather like a kriek lambic. With the sediment poured in the it was less attacking, the sourness smoothed out and the carbonation also. A really rather interesting beer.

75cl bottle shared with Joeh at Catford BF 06. Hazy red colour with thin pink head. Sour farmyard aroma. Faint red cherry. Interesting sourness in mouth. Farmyard is quite strong on aroma. Added a bit of yeast and made it creamier. The guy pouring it, poured it clear and gave us the sediment in a separate glass.
