4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Spontanious weekend 07. Notes say: Cherry lambic funk, tart. Hints of sourness and rasberry is quite in here too. Quite the winner.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2006 (Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm 29 Apr) Colour is deep red, with a thick pink head. Nose is acidic and sour with hints of cherry. Taste is very acidic and harsh with hints of cherries and rhubarb. Too much carbonation leaves a prickly mouthfeel. A nice try at some serious lambic making, but not particularly complex.
2) (Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm 16 May 2006) Colour is dark red, almost ruby, pink foamy head. Nose is fruity and acidic with cherries and hints of almonds. Taste is very acidic, a bit harsh, with a nice cherry taste and hints of almonds. The cask version was slightly better and more complex than the draught version. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2006 Draught, sold with hand made label reading "Mort Subite Kriekenlambic" at Akkurat, Stockholm. Fresh sweet cherry aroma. Dry with intense initial acidity. Concentrated juicy citric flavour. The cherries adds a sweetish flavour, but they are far from the magnificently complex flavour of the Schaerbeekse krieken. The acidity however is hardcore. Really traditional, but lacks a bit of flavour depth.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught Deep red, cloudy body. No head off course. Nose of mold and caskwood and cherries, but the sweet-ones. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic initial flavour. Lightly sweet, lightly acidic, dry finish, which lasts long. Lightly bodied, flat carbonation. Not my style of kriekenlambiek.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
(draught of course)Beautiful hazy cherry-red; no head. Nose of speculoos! And some sweet cherries. Good, sweet, again speculoos-y kriek. With a finish that is just the true sour-cherry bite I want. Great. Dry, fruity, good body. An excellent cherrylambic. Start selling this to the public, morons!
