2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
750ml bottle. Dark pink with firm readish head. Aroma is ripe sweet cherries. Mouthfeel is sweet, extremely cherry forward with loads of fruit sweetness. Finish is cherry fruity sweet, no funk what so ever, no lambic dryness, almost no sourness. Incredibly boring and a huge let down. Thank god that the price tag on this was not that heavy. Shame on you Girardin because the black label geuzue is simply world class.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
375mL bottle from Beer Cartel
Attractive hazy scarlet beer, slightly pink-tinged dense creamy head persists.
Aroma somewhat subdued - sweet/almost confectionary-like cherry, citrus rind, cheese & sour cream.
Good weight for a Lambic, lively carbonation, appreciable acidity without being bracing.
Character more refined on the body - ripe red cherry - stones & stalks - grapefruit rind, red wine vinegar, Parmasean, grassy/leafy undertones, slight barnyard/hay character lingers on finish.
Not overly fruity but lovely structure & complexity.

Bottle at M-Café, Leuven. Aroma of tart cherries, red fruits, oak, some funky notes. Flavour is very tart and moderate sour, with a little sweetness as well. Good body and nice balance. Not as stunning as some of the other classic Belgian Krieks, but a fine tasty specimen just the same.
