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.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - JAN 16, 2013
True to the style.. Tart red fruit, tart raspberries, tart cherries and a puckering, mouthwatering, vinegary finish. Not much wood interplay, if any... Just a transparent, sour, tart, red fruit profile... RRBC Supplication comes to mind.. Although not the same.. This honestly has a touch brighter fruit and less barrel influence in comparison. Super sour, refreshing finish. No complaints. I love sours!!! --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

.375l bottle at Pozarevac Grand Tasting 2014. Deep cranberry, red body, red-white head. Funk cherry aroma. Earthy. Very cranberry feel. Quite dusty, earthy body, more tart than sour. Gorgeous red color. Such full, natural flavor. Nice fun beer, oak is nice.

At a private tasting in Serbia with markoijelena and luttonm. "Pour it" deep rose colour, cloudy with a gassy minimal white head. Nose: vinegars, cherries. Mouth: acetic notes, gassy and astringent background, dry palate. Great one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sten (670) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2014
Dark red, ruby beer with a fast fading pink head. Nice sour aroma of cherries. Flavour starts of mildy sour, fades into a sweet undertone of cherries and ends in a long sour aftertaste. (Corked bottle 75cl)

GTAEgeek (1258) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle shared by Joe. Pours cloudy red, with no head. The aroma is black cherries, caramel, oak, cloves, and lemons. Very tart and acidic, with a nice fruity sweetness. Medium to heavy body, creamy, and crisp. Overall, this is a very nice, incredibly tart, but well balanced beer. Not as approachable (i.e. fruit jelly) as Lindemans, but much more complex. Thanks, Joe!

milo91hd (132) - Lecce, ITALY - OCT 30, 2014
Bottiglia 75 CL, colore rosso rubino leggermente velato con una schiuma praticamente assente, questa è forse la kriek più acida che abbia mai bevuto, eppure l’acido pronunciato non è mai invadente o esagerato e si sposa benissimo con il gusto dolce delle ciliegie. Un’ottima kriek insomma
