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.

SlackerMads (1547) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle. Deep red with a small white head. Lots of funk and barnyard with the cherries in the background. Sour cherries, sulphur, band aid, wood. Medium body, medium sweet and sour, oily texture, soft carbonation. Long dry sour finish. Very tasty and plenty sour, but for a kriek I would like more cherry up front.

bellco33 (295) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Poured from bottle into sample glass (Kriek-off): Pours ruby red with a decent pink head. Aroma is nasty, it smells like sulfur and feet. Taste is the second best of the eleven we sampled tonight. Very tart, very cherry. Medium body, perfect carbonation, slightly sticky palate. Great beer if you can get past the horrible smell.

Corked bottle from Luekens in Oldsmar. Deep red pour with pinkish white head. Aroma is big funky cheese, bandaid and berry. Tastes are jammy cherry, lemon, wine, oak, barnyard, acidic, light vinegar, good even sour, little salty, green apple. Lots going on. Very nice.

Muted nose, very sour but big cherry flavors. Opens up as it warms and becomes very tasty. Great for a warm summer day.
