René Lindemans had made an experiment with Lindemans Kriek Cuvée René, involving a very short pasteurization instead of a somewhat longer one normally performed on the Cuvée René beers. The result wasn’t as intented. René refused to sell the beer as Cuvée René Kriek and instead part of it was sold (500 bottles) to De Heeren van Liedekercke.

Scopey (5521) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle at DHVL. It pours deep red with a medium light pink head. The nose is dark cherry, light jam, black grape, earth and barnyard. The taste is smooth, ripe cherry, tart lemon, wood, earth, cherry pip, with dry, tart finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Not a whole lot of complexity, but it is very well balanced and rather drinkable.

Theydon_Bois (6994) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
Bottle split with Leighton and Bruce at DHVL, 22/03/13 #15652 2010. Vibrant crimson with a thin pinkish head. Nose is rich tarte cherries, woody, sugars, light smoke. Taste comprises cherry drops, sweet sugars, berry fruits, woody tones, sour and tarte cherry. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry tarte cherry in the finish. Decent enough stuff - not sure why he ditched this batch!

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 3, 2012
2010 Vintage. 75 cl. fles gedeeld door 2 @ DHL. Fles nr. 15628. Krak dezelfde fles als de standaard Kriek Cuvée René. Donker bruin, rood hoestsiroop eruit ziend, stabiele kleine roze kraag, lichte paarse toetsen. Geur is echt wel zoet, van die zoete kersensap, wel ja Lindemans-stijl ding met wat hoestsiroop en zoetstof erbij, limonade toetsen. Smaak is bitter hoestsiroop, stroop, zoetstof, limonade, zoetstof, gevolgd door een eigenaardige einde, bitter, ferm kruidig met lichte synthetische toetsen gevolg door wat ok lichte azijn, kriekenzuur, vooral in de nasmaak. Lichte smaken die met de leeftijd meegaan, heel lichte kelder onderaan en kleine oxidatie toetsen. Lichtjes stroperig, prikkelend. Beetje maf maar leuk, begrijp waarom zij hiermee niet zijn doorgegaan.

Bottle @ De Heeren van Liedekercke. 2010 vintage. Ruby red color. Cherry aroma with yoghurt notes. Sour flavor with almonds, dust, cherry pits and marzipan. Vinous. Oaky finish. Surprisingly complex..
