3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2014 Rerate, 375 ml corked and caged green bottle, will soon be available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5%. Hazy peachy to red colour, large pinkish off-white head. Pleasant aroma of sour cherries, almond essence and marzipan, The medium sour and medium dry flavour has also notes of sour cherries, with hints of almonds and red wine vinegar. The hops are subdued like in all lambics, but here they are at least noticeable. Original rating: On tap at the GBBF 2008. Beautiful red colour, minimal pinkish head. Very nice cherry aroma. The flavour is also dominant cherries on a moderately sour background. Not too sweet, fairly light bodied.

Bag-box. Muddy red with no head at all. Very sweet fruity aroma, lacking funkiness. Plain sweet flavour, medium bodied. Perhaps too young and under attenuated.

Botella. pours a nice deep red colour with a weak pinkish bubbly head. Bit sweet cherry tart aroma. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is mildly sour with cherries and a mild sourness. Nice lamniek for the summer.

Beer-in-box @ Plan B. Deep red body with almost no head. Quite good balance but maybe a bit on the sweet side. Nice fruityness and quite refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
37.5 cl bottle. Pours a pink tinged orange body with a off-white foamy tight bubbled head that had pretty good retention. Nice sweet and slightly sour cherry nose with a little chocolate and woody notes. The flavor is fairly tart with a little acidity and some rich chocolate covered cherries. A little sweetness on the back end with some subtle gueuze like funkiness and yeast. Medium bodied with nice pinpoint fizzy effervescent carbonation. A little syrupy and clingy up front but it dries out a bit on the finish leaving behind some tart cherry notes. Overall, a decent enough beer, it’s not up to par with the funkiness of the top tier Krieks, but it wasn’t anywhere near sickly sweet like many of the wanna be Krieks like Lindemans.

Courtesy of Yespr. Dark red, hazy with a slightly pink and lasting head. The aroma is initially very sharp and sour, but after a while it’s more mellow and leaves room for notes like raisin, cherries and yeast. The flavour has sweetness and sourness, notes of yeast, cherries, raisin and it’s actually surprisingly sweet, even if the lambic character still is there.
