2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The unblended ’raw material’ from which the famous Lindemans Kriek is made. Deep wine-red colour, lots of cherry juice, sugary, a bit artificial and far removed from the fully authentic kriekenlambics made without sugar and with real sweet cherries, even a bit syrupy. Basic taste is more or less the same as the bottled version.

Tap at WoSF, 2013. It pours deep red-purple with no head. The nose is earthy, mouldy wood, cherry, cherry tunes, candy and faint medicinal notes. The nose is tart cherry, red grape skin, vinous, sharp lemon, plum skin and intense sourness with a dry, tart finish. Medium body and low carbonation. Sharp, juicy and damn tasty. Wow!

Rating lambic is kinda stupid.. every barrel is different anyway... nevertheless. This one was my personal best at WoSf 29/5/12. Very rich kriekenlambiek, quite able to take on any high class burgundy. sticks to the glass awesomly... a lovely beer!

On draught at the 21st Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. Pours a ruby colour with no head. Aroma of cherries, lemon, almonds and oak. Similar flavours and fairly tart with a very dry, tannic finish. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel with lovely lingering almonds. Very nice.
