This is the first version of Opstals Specialleken. The Opstalse Bierpallieters released in 2007 bottles of "Kriekenboerke" with a different label. In 2005 Opstals Specialleken was made for first the first time as a blend of Boerke, Opstalse Tripel and sour cherries. In 2007 introduced a 'new' version of Opstals Specialleken for nostalgic reasons. This is Boerke with addition of sour cherries, which is one of the regular products of this brewery, namely Kriekenboerke.

MPA (977) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle (from the november 2005 RB-tasting at Dixens place - notes have been damaged by flooding of my basement, but this was such an insane tasting for me as I was new to such massive tastings, so I gave up on the detailed notes quite early). Acidic aroma of berries and yeast. Flavour is a little acidic with dirt. Quite drinkable.
