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.

Cimbasso (642) - - SEP 13, 2015
Sampled from a shared bottle at the Cardinal, Stavanger at a beer tasting in August 2015. Ruby colour, with a rich taste of cherries, old burgundy and hints of wood and leather. Not too vinegary, but with a subtle and complex sour taste. Very interesting and full, fruity flavour. Refreshing and very individual. Excellent beer.

willisread (2018) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 12, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a slightly cloudy light burgundy with very little head that dissipates fairly quickly. BIg cobweb and basement aromas with very tart cherry, cranberry and plum on the nose. Lots of cherry stone and sour cherry on the palate with good basement, musty notes as well. Bone dry with a slightly agressive dry tartness on the finish. Excellent!

DerGantzel (268) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2015
Fruity aromas. Golden color, a bit hazy liquid. Medium sweetness, not much bitterness and medium-heavy sourness. Fresh taste of cherries. Not too sour or too sweet! Not much carbonation. A great kriek from Hanssens, definitely one I will drink again.

Lukasmh (780) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy red with nice-settling creamy pink head, some sediment. Aroma is funky, sour cherries, dry brett, some cheese and mold. Tart cranberry, some oxidized raspberries and yam. Taste is packed with sour tart cherries. Really sour, clean and refreshing. Tart berries, cranberries, raspberry. Some vinegar and lemon. Really dry long finish. Fizzy body. Really fruity with quite some funk. Different from aroma. Light sweet turns limy and really tart.

ShivanDragon (3007) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2015
37.5cl, 6%, mengeling van de fijnste lambiek. rood kraagloos met kleine witte kraag. Aroma van hout, rood fruit, zuur, lambiek. Smaken....Damn dit spul is een partijtje zuur zeg in eerste instantie.... wat later bezinkt het wel wat meer, of mijn smaakpapillen zijn wat gewend... hout, fruit, kers, veel complexe lambiekzuren. matige body, iets teveel zuurcomplexen naar mijn mening

Ysok02 (751) - MOns, BELGIUM - AUG 1, 2015
Un beau de nez qui allie la cerise du nord au lambic et une bouche tendue, ciselée, longue et harmonieuse.

750ml bottle from Etre Gourmet, Belgium. Pours a hazy red color with no head at all. Aromas of cherries and oak. Taste is really sour and intense. Cherries, leather, oak, red wine, rotten fruits. Hell yeah! Body is thin with no carbonation.
