COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the result of blending black cherries lambic of different ages followed by a second fermentation in the bottle. Storage is similar like geuze. All bottles are champagne corked and can be reserved, in normal conditions, for more than thirty years. It is obvious that an amazing taste evolution takes place.

onceblind (6696) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Murky dark cherry hue with a thin pink head. Earthy funky tart cherry nose, dark Belgian malts, sour yeast and wild earthiness. Big fresh cherry flavor, very bright, very clean with nice bright tart sour funk. Bit of strawberry throughout. Sweet cherry on the finish with a gentle touch of sour acidity.

Linnet (1562) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2015
Acidic, tart, yeasty, barnyard, lots of vinegar, not that fruity. Reddish color, medium head. Enjoyable and very powerful tartness, low bitterness, not that fruity, a bit too one dimensional. Medium body, tart finish. Enjoyable.

CraftBeerNick (1730) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle at Nuetnigenough, 14th October 15. Pours nice dark pink, good. Aroma is cherry, funk, sour. Taste is fantastic, cherry jumps out, rich, full depth of flavour, some cherry stone and slight bitterness of skin, well balanced and spot on. Great Kriek, one of my favourites

esp0r (2650) - NORWAY - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle shared at Drøbak by night 2015
Pours pink, quite hazy with almost no head. Smell of cherries, funk, some woody tendensies, cherry stones, hints of oak and some light malts. The funky part is mostly barnyard stuff and stable. Light to moderate sweet, a distinct flavor of sour cherries up front, medium sour, nice acids, tart berries, complex funky brett flavors, a blast! Moderate bitter, cherry stone finish. A very nice kriek!

Bottle. Wonderful red body with nearly no head. Aroma is fruity with cherries and some marzipan and dried fruits. Taste is nice sour cherries wit malts and other red fruits and nice and refreshing sourness. Aftertaste is sour and fruity. Very nice.
