Perhaps I shouldnít rate this one.. a very disappointing barrel from one of my favourite breweries.. this lambic wasnít actually bad, it just wasnít anything. well, it did give me inpiration tio use this cherry lambic as the base of a kriek-sangria.. Sad

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the 21st Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. Pours a beautiful ruby colour with no head. Aroma of caramel, cherries, lemon, almonds and oak. Similar flavours and mildly tart. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle with an oily mouth-feel. OK with lingering caramel and cherries. Quite subtle and a little sweet.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dispensed from bag in a box. It pours bright red, with no head. The nose is juicy tart cherry, farmyard, acidic and some TCP. The taste is tart cherry, strawberry, red grape, vinious acidic and tart lemon, with a tart finish. Light-medium body and pretty much no carbonation. Great balance. Not particularly complex, but just massively drinkable. I could drink this all day.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a blood red color with a faint pink head and creamy lacing. Nose is a light metallic twang with a bit of syrupy sweet cherry and not much else. The taste is fairly simple, a little cough syrup with a fair bit of sweet cherries. no tartness and a little artificial. light zesty yeast note underneath it all. light body, very creamy, low carb, and juicy in the back.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
15 cl. draft sample from a plastic keg @ Bruges Beer Festival 2012: magnificent clear, bright pomegranate red, no head save for a handful of bubbles that are supposed to pass for a head with lambic, smell & taste is pretty mush straight up kriek juice, slightly tart, finish going a touch of lambic acidity, touch funkiness, sourness is just perfect for me, fruity with a real ďkriekĒ fruitiness to it, hint delicious lactic, easy drinkable no unwanted carbonation

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Barrel from the brewery at Sint-Ulriks-Kapelle.
Pours light red, no head. Taste is not sour enough for me. Itís isnít sweet, but not complex enough for me. Like the brewer says, itís not sour nor sweet, itís kriek. Well that defines it actually. I had far better kriek lambics than this one.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: The pour is blood red with no carbonation. Nice clarity to it.
S: A really intense cherry aroma. Tons of cherry skin in addition to the flesh. Lemon zest and lactic tartness with a bit of grass and straw. Just an amazing amount of cherry, though.
T: The flavor is even better. Itís just a little bit sweet with plenty of lactic tartness to balance that out. As with the nose, a prodigious amount of cherry flesh and skin flavor. Only a mild funk to it.
M: Medium bodied with no carbonation.
O: Awesome stuff. I could probably drink all 5 liters by myself.
