Girardin’s unblended cherry lambic, purplish red in colour, no head as expected for the style. Refined, honest and earthy character, delicate funkiness, cheesy, very fruity with enough real cherries; still unsweetened contrary to the bottled kriek and in that sense a lot more interesting for lambic lovers, relatively mild, and very elegant. Great example of its particular style, like their regular lambic.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Verre de 25 cl, d’un cask au ’t Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Arômes très fruités de cerises confites. Légères notes sauvages. Robe rouge et limpide, très faible effervescence et peu de mousse. En bouche, les fruits sont très présents, montrant un caractère de tarte aux cerises. Le lambic apporte quelques notes sauvages qui tentent de percer au travers des fruits. Finale bien sèche et légèrement acide (beaucoup moins que le Oude Kriek moyen). Très bon!

Gerbeer (2006) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep dark red with almost no head. Aromas of pressed cherries and barnyard. Flavors of cherry pie and light funk. A nice light Kriek for a summer evening.

McWorta (662) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 27, 2014
Dark red colour with no real head. Noses of sour cherries and woody. The taste is also offering mainly sour cherry notes but all rather well balanced. Sour with some sweet notes to it. The finish is a bit fruity dry.

tom10101 (3109) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2014
Cask @ In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst. Bright purple-ish red with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of sweet cherries with light subdued funk. Taste is sweet with cherries and light funk. Medium body. Soft carbonation. A tad sirupy. Not really dry. That’s a good and tasty fruit juice, but it lack some depth.

JulienHuxley (3482) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2014
On cask at Grote Dorst. Clear deep red pour with no head. Aroma is fruity, nice desserty cherry aroma, fresh cherry pie, light syrupy notes, very mild funk. Taste is sweet, juicy cherry flavor, not very tart at all. Closer to cherry juice, the lambic is quite subdued in this one. Palate is medium bodied. Nice, but would have enjoyed a bit more lambic character.
