On tap at DHL, Belgium. Pours a clearish red with a light, filmy head. Tart, aged cherries in the nose. Sharp cherry flavor, quite sour, lightly sweet. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Clean, sharp finish, pretty dry, lots of wood and cherries. Delicious.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at the 20th Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. It pours clear deep red, with no head or carbonation. The nose is juicy cherry, marzipan, biscuit, peach, orange and floral. The taste is quite chewy, full of tangy cherry, redcurrant, watermelon jolly rancher and some metal, with a long, dry cherry finish. A great surprise from Mort Subite, probably the best kriekenlambik I had at the festival.

Muffiger, aber auch deutlich dunkler Kirschgeruch. Im Antrunk etwas nach Zimt, nun dumpf, säuerlich und trocken hopfig. Mittelintensiver Mittelteil und Abgang, leicht wässrig, nur wenig fruchtig. Naja... /9/9/9//9

[3311-20100808] Tap. Rich wood-matured cherries aroma with notes of Belgian yeast. Slightly hazy, dark ruby red body with no lasting head. Muted wood flavour is mostly sour cherry yeast then a few seconds later is a soft cereal finish and lingering aftertaste. Medium-full body is quite sour. Quite tasty, very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled July 2010 at De Heeren van Liedekercke
This beer arrives from the tap with a dark purple, deep red color. The beer is flat, but there is a touch of a ring head around the edges of my glass. Fruity smelling, though I wouldn’t necessarily describe it as expressively of cherries; this smells more berry like, or perhaps sort of like red wine. When I come back to the nose after a bit I get a floral, ripe cherry note that is now much more noticeable. The cherry derived notes are definitely the dominant character in the nose, but there is also a note of popcorn some how, or perhaps it is a note reminiscent of sweet corn.
The beer is dry tasting and tart with a lactic and cherry sourness to it. Behind this is a note of sweet baby vomit. My second sip has a berry-like, red wine character being noticeable in the flavor. This is quite tannic, though it is not overly astringent. This is not very complexly flavor and more vaguely fruity with some faded cherry flavors. This would be exceedingly light and quaffable if not for the tannic, cherry skin finish.

2010-08-08. headless dark ruby red. 4+ Briskly sour up front, refreshingly so, well rounded acidity, fruit comes out more fully in the aftertaste, lovely cherry character lingers with a round profile. 7+ Aroma of modest sour cheery, very light funk. 7+ Smooth average plus palate is very lightly carbonated, if at all. 3+ Seems to get more sour as it goes. Not super complex but rather good. On tap at DHVL, Liedekerke
