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.

Deep burgundy pour with a thin white head. Aroma of tart fruit, cherry skins, toast, vanilla oak, green wood, sweet cereal and earthy basement funk. Flavor is tart funk up front, a little vinegar, toasty wood, sweet and tart cherry skins, vinous notes, and some tart citrusy notes. Light body, dry, crisp and acidic feel with a light, but sharp carbonation. Good stuff

DerGantzel (28) - 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 (610) - 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 (2339) - 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

Un beau de nez qui allie la cerise du nord au lambic et une bouche tendue, ciselée, longue et harmonieuse.

Tsekouratos (492) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - JUL 25, 2015
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.

bnokk (286) - Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2015
APPEARANCE – burgundy in color, thin wispy head, no lacing. NOSE – very sour with notes of sweetness. FLAVOR – packs a power punch of sour on the first sip that immediately yields to the sweetness from the cherries. The amount of sourness varies throughout the glass.

375ml bottle drunk in the park. Pours deep pinkish red with sour cherry aroma. Taste is massively tangy with super tart cherries. Extremely refreshing.
