I think that is the right one - brewery closed five years ago. had this on a tutored kriek tasting at the GBBF 2003. Bottle from 1989. Great cherry, sweet, woody and blueberry nose. Hazelnutbrown, ruby with a little layer of a head. Sweet like candy sugar first , sour in the back. Almond and like a moisty forest flavour, long aftertaste, short body, beer is quenching. Well balanced.

thanks to ness who bought me a bottle of this when i was fumbling with my change at the end of the gbbf. from what i can make out of my hieroglyphics on this beer, it was a nice deep mahogany colour. aromas of raw malt and chocolate mixed with a trace of that longed for public toilet smell. not too acidic like the cantillon, but not as lollyish as lindemans. trace of wood in there too. nobbad in the slightest in fact.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2005 sweet cherry nose, with a very cherry flavoured bubblegum/lolly flavour, a little sweet i think, but i think there is a nice underlying belgian ale flavour in there, a bit lolly-ish i think,(3.1) RE-RATE: Much better with more age, slightly lolly-ish cherry aroma, but more tart and balsamic than i remember, sweetish still, but with a refreshing finish.

A cherryade of a beer. Not as sweet & sour as many other lambics. Still refreshing, though. Perhaps a kriek for beginners?

I went to Belgium for a few days after christmas. One of my goals was this brewery in Oudenaarde. But sadly enough I learned that the brewery no longer operates. The tanks were solt half a year ago and nothing was left. The beers are brewed at Verhaeghe in Vichte at the moment and there are plans to build a new brewery near Vichte. Hope this will come to be realized. The beer (brewed actually by Verhaeghe): Cherry and hop aroma. Dark red colour with few head. Flat, some cherry flavors (just enough). Not much flavors left in the finish except some sweetness.
