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.

Smells like deliciously sour cherries. Slightly cloudy, red color with a fizziness and little head. Very complex taste of sweet, sour, and tart cherries. Very good sour beer.

Alhoewel ik de oude geuze van Hanssens lekkerder vindt dan die van Oud Beersel, is het bij de oude kriek net andersom, deze was niet zo goed.

Habanero (2543) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2014
Bottled. Pours red with a large, pink head. Aroma of wood, cherries, barnyard notes, brett and citrus. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carb. A very nice and crisp Kriek.

A red beer with a weak and blond head. The nose is strongly sour and naturally cherry, lether, earthyness and some grapes. Taste is strongly sour, vinegar, mild cherries, some lether. The end is slightly sticky and sourness is strong in the mouth. Medium bodied, fresh. Strongly sour with mild cherries.

Flaska 37 cl hos Johan L. (några år gammal, noterade ej årgång). Hallon och körsbär i doft. Pigga bär. Rubinröd. Första klunken är som vanligt brutal men Hanssen. Skarp syra men lite ättika. Blir bättre när man vänjer sig. Ganska tunn.

375ml bottle. Hazy red body with a small pink head. Vinegar, cherries, wood, lemon and apples. A nice balance between sweet and sour.

SlackerMads (1511) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle. Deep red with a small white head. Lots of funk and barnyard with the cherries in the background. Sour cherries, sulphur, band aid, wood. Medium body, medium sweet and sour, oily texture, soft carbonation. Long dry sour finish. Very tasty and plenty sour, but for a kriek I would like more cherry up front.

37.5 cL bottle at home. Pours hazy red with a small pink’ish head. Aroma is tart, sour cherries, some barnyard, some sweet cherries, fruitiness and some wood. Taste has some sweetness at first with quite some cherries, barnyard, red fruits, fruitiness and a medium sour, bit dry, finish. Medium body and carbo. Nice stuff, well balanced.
