3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
75cl bottle. Red cherry with a rose head.
NOSE : cherry, tart, citrus, apple, wood.
SIP : Moderate carbonation with medium body. It strikes with strong sourness flavored with fruits like cherry, seeds from citrus and apple. The background tart is overpowered by this almost acid like, strong presence that lasts until the end. It’s complex fruity flavors fuel the sour notes but also reveals the bitter ones on the end.
OVERALL : since I’m not a fan of strong sour taste, I add honey into my Lambic and it marries extremely well. It doesn’t hide the complexity of the lamic.

Oak, nicely sour, raspberries and cherries. I’m still quite a youngster when it comes to lambics and sours but this one is nice :) Works perfectly as a palate cleaner in bottleshares :D

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Vintage 2010. Pours mostly clear, bloody purple-red with a frothy, light pink head that settles into a cream. Lots of acidic berries in the nose, cherry skins. Light sweet flavor with brisk, biting cherry sourness, mild pit bitterness, some blistering tang, touches of wet earth. Light to medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Modest sweetness to finish, plenty more bracing tangy cherries, light bitter earth, ripening cherries, some basement twang. Quite a solid fruit lambic.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from bieresgourmet.be webshop. Pours a deep cherry red clear body with a fast-disappearing pinkish white head. Nose is sweet cherries, oak, cherry pits, black currants and hints of citric acid and stable funk. Taste is medium tart cherry notes, lactic acid, stable funk, dry oak tones and hints of black currants and lemon juice. Dry finish. Medium to light body, medium to high carbonation. A refreshing and not-so-aggressive kriek which I believe would serve great as an introductory fruit lambic for many beginners, while still delivering enough interesting content to satisfy most beer geeks. I liked it, at least. :-)

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Poured a very bright ruby red color with a pretty pink head. Smell is like feet and brie, which I found kind of gross. Flavor was awesome, cherries, funk, plenty of cherry tartness. I really liked it despite the aroma not being to my liking.
