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.

gyllenbock (4933) - Stockholm, - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle at Akkurat in February 2013. (vintage 2003, we also tried a bottle from 1998 but the on from 2003 was tastier so I rate that one) Clear ruby with a small head. Aroma of sour cherries, some wood, dust and funk. The taste was nicely sour with cherries, wood, vinegar and funk. Medium carbonation and a light body. The finish was dry. A very nice one!

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 (131) - 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

RasmusOtt (1232) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2014
Pours deep red with a white lacing on top. Aroma has big sour ripe cherries along with some cherry sweets, sour berries, horse blanket and overall funky notes behind this. The taste is juicy and has lots of cherri, funk, sweet gums and sour berries. Very nice and sour Kriek!

Deep cherry red, light pink head, sour/bright/lively aroma. Big sour flavor, some bitterness, not too much cherry, fruit or sweetness.
