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.

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.

Hamirubi (541) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2016
33cl bottle at home (13 II 2016), shared with the Meetjeslandse Bierproevers. This is one of my favoute old krieks, way less lambic styled as for example the Boon brews. It has an unbelievable good scent. The taste is like a young Cote du Rhone wine, with lots of sweet sour notes. The body is fairly heavy with a massive wood character. Sour wine and sour grapes are omnipresent, in combination with sour red berries (red currants). What a nose, what a body, what a character!

KansaiBeerLvrs (4237) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 2, 2016
Hanssens Artisinal’s Oude Kriek 6% Pouring an orange rose with a sour cherry, lightly oaky and earthy funkiness in the aroma. Smells like it’ll be interesting. Oaky, black pepper funk and ascerbic cherries with a light acidity on a bright drinkable body. I like it, it’s edgy enough without getting too extreme plus it is reasonably priced.
