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.

I was expecting less than I got here, not being a fan of sourpus, dry geueze and lambic. But this kriek is sweeter and more mellow than Cantillon, which for me is good. The brew pours a nice amber with a definite reddish hue. Very prett, with delicate carbonation and a good, fizzy head, that eventually diminishes. I smell woody, cheesy, cherries with maybe a dirty sock and a used band-aid thrown in. Lotsa cherry flavor, surprising maltiness and hints of mint and herbs. Though sweet, there is a distinctly, sour lambic squeeze of acidity about midway through and into the finish. This is a nice lambic for folks like me who get a stomachache thinking about Cantillon, and love Flanders sour red ales.

freretoc (980) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 7, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 37.5cl à la brasserie, couleur rouge rubis, pas de mousse n’i d’effervescence. Une bière avec une attaque sur la cerise acide et plus rien... Un défaut à l’ambouteillage ?
