4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thank you for sharing JorisPPattyn! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ "De grote Black Tuesday Tasting". Purchased in 1987! Tasted to side-by-side with a kriek from the same era (brewery or blender unknown). Dark red amber, no head. Nos is mellow vinegar, puckering, sourish with interesting sour cherry juice layered on top. Taste is oxidized candy, sour puckering, vinegar, sour cherry juice, oak,…Easy to drink, body showing some signs of age but easy to drink, works well. A bit hard to pinpoint but as odd as those flavor combinations sounded, as good did this one taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2000 Vintage. 750mL bottle at Grote Dorst, pours a hazy amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out faded cherries, some sweetness, and jam - not a lot of funk. Flavour is fairly jammy and lightly sweet, with very subtle funk. Not very complex at all; very simplistic. Drinkable, but not a superior lambic, especially for a 14 year old one. Another disappointing old filtered kriek.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Grote Dorst, 2000 vintage. Clear red copper with white head. Aroma of syrupy cherries, grassy notes, light oxidization, slightly dusty, mild well rounded lambic funk. Taste is sweet, mild fruity tartness, light herbal finish. Palate is light bodied with light carbonation. A sweetned lambic that still has a great authentic fruit character and a really well rounded mouthfeel. Easy drinking.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml) @ In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst. Vintage 2000. Slightly hazy amber with a small off-white head and little lacing. Aroma is of sweetness cherries, but I imagine the sweetness has mellowed a lot with the age. There’s also leafy notes, wooden notes and hints of acidity. Taste is slightly sweet with a nice fruitiness (even though it’s sweetened, it doesn’t taste artificial) with a very light sourness, wooden notes, oxidation and leafy presence. Light body. Low carbonation. Slightly sirupy mouthfeel. Not the best Kriek available, but definitely impressive for a 14 years old sweetnened one. Drinkable and enjoyable. A fun experience.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle - kindly shared by JorisPPattyn - and what a bottle - OMG! Could be 1985, could be 1975... One of the two. Actually, it is brewed by Moriau, not Boon. In se, it does not belong here, but there are no older Moriau listings but I do want to share this incredible beer.
Pours dark orange with a small transparant head. Aroma is intense cherry (still!), some sherry and lots of funk. The body is light & sour, carbonation level is still very lovely and lively. Taste = kriek, wild raspvberry, small hint of white pepper. Fabulous how they made Kriek back in the days.
Joris, this was really a treat. Top score!

This bottle -shared with Mikkel is from around 1985. The lable ws hardly readable and one could say that it is unfair to rate this beer when its that old - But hey - you just take in to consideration that its a kriek that old and then I think we will be fine.
The pour is pink and pretty thin - it kinda reminds me off ligt strawberrie flavour water. It has a tiny white head. The aroma has still a major cherry atitude but is follow by cork and vinegar. The taste is actually still fine even though its 25 years old - amazing. Its still fresh and sour with lots of cherries and without any oxydation. The palate is medium with a dry mouthfeel. Thx for sharing
