Holmen1 (3050) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2015
Fra flaske (0,375 med champ.kork) på RBHD-treff hos OG mars-15: lett uklar kirsebærrød med tett, rosa skum. Nydelig duft av kirsebær, lær og eik. Lekker smak og elegant i avslutningen - et praktstykke! Det sukkes henført rundt bordet og saligheten brer om seg. Kveldens første virkelige höjdare. 2012-årgangen. Kjøp!

Sigmund (5449) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2015
Shared 375 ml green corked & caged bottle, vintage 2012. ABV is 6.5%. Hazy deep red colour, moderate pink head. Lovely aroma of sour cherries and oak. The flavour is medium sour, not extreme - and quite dry for a kriek. Notes of sour cherries of course, and a moderately tart finish. One to buy again.

Alengrin (2742) - BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2014
Traditional (’oude’, i.e. unsweetened and 100% lambic) kriek since the summer of 2006. Pale lilac, delicate, moussy, sticky, stable head, colour a pretty dark ruby red, clear at first but misty with deposit, obviously. Complex and credibly authentic lambic aroma of wine vinegar, old sherry, wet hay, sulphur, oak, lemon juice with a very full, genuine and opulent cherry smell nicely woven into it, as well as a touch of elderberries, which are apparently also used in this one. Citric and fruit acidity attacks the tongue at first, deep fresh fruitiness spreading over the entire mouth cavity, rich lambic, tannins, truckloads of red fruit, sticky and even a bit oily, sour and dry in the finish. I was pleasantly surprised this corporate-owned lambic brewery is capable of making such a rich and bountiful old kriek.
