4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2012 Re-rate 12/29/11: Bottle shared at a tasting at my place. Bought the bottle at the Moriau cafe in 2009. If I remember correctly, the bottle should be about 5-6 years old now. Hazy deep red color with a bit of pinkish foam. Aroma of sour cherries, cobwebs, citrus and some barnyard. Sour cherry flavor with some lemony notes and light touches of fruity sweetness. Slick mouthfeel. Great-tasting and refreshing. 8/4/8/4/17=4.1
[9/6/09] A few years-old bottle at a Moriau cafe, I think it’s in Sint-pieters-leeunw. Served by the actual Moriau steeper/blender. Dark unclear ruby color with a beige-pinkish head. Aroma of cherries and some cellar quality. Sour earthy flavor with cherries, lots of wood and some sweeter fruity notes. Light astringency in the finish. Medium-bodied. A great Kriek. 8/4/8/3/16=3.9

Dusty old bottle at Moriau. This was Pretty neat stuff. Some subtle sweetnes from the cherry, quickly taken over by tart and dry cherry flavours. Some funk and farmhouse aromas/flavours. Really good, ii’m glad we stopped at this place.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl corked, shared by KimJohansen at Copenhagen Beerfestival. Unknown vintage. Thx a lot Kim. It pours a hazy, orange-red body under a small, creamy, off-white head. Cherries, some almond and white sugar in the aroma, unusual but nice. The flavor has cellar in the background, some sweetness, cherry, almond and a nice balancing sourness. Pleasant slightly sourish, palate cleansing moutfheel. A nice one, really balanced and quenching. (090517)
