COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2014
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.

Bottle at globe. Reddish pour. White head. Like a cherry jolly rancher. Bubbly. Good for the style

Travlr (13413) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Draft. Cloudy reddish color, flat. Aroma of tangy fruit, red wine, edge of citrus. Taste is sour cherries, full flavoroed and vinous. Delicious.

Martinus (3062) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2013
Slightly hazy ruby colour, no head. Aroma of cherry and aspirin. Sweet flavour, cherry, chalk and aspirin. Finish cherry, fruits and chalk.
(Draught @ WoSF, Opstal 2013. Thanks for sharing, Uli! Part of Uli’s blind tasting of fruit lambics. 8 out of 10, not bad my friend, not bad at all!)

Scopey (7437) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2013
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!

rotjoch (50) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2012
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!

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2012
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.
