3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask @ GBBF ’12. Deep hazy red with a frothy pink head. The nose is bright sweet cheery and raspberry jam. Spun sugar, cherry pith. The taste is meaty cherry pits, sweet fruits and sugar. The sweetness is pronounced but balanced. Very drinkable. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, really straightforward. One you could drink by the litre!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at La Fleur en Papier Doré
Pours a very pretty red color, there are a few bubbles atop the beer as it comes out, but this is basically flat.
The aroma is nutty with some cherry and light yogurt.
The flavor is very pleasantly earthy with a great bit of tart cherry flavor, the kriek is mildly sour and has some citrus rind flavor along with a bit of plain yogurt.

Perhaps I shouldn’t rate this one.. a very disappointing barrel from one of my favourite breweries.. this lambic wasn’t actually bad, it just wasn’t anything. well, it did give me inpiration tio use this cherry lambic as the base of a kriek-sangria.. Sad

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.
