Clear red. Aroma is light cherries, raspberry, citrus and some red candy. Fruity palate. Aftertaste is dry, bitter, fruity and some dry tartness. Overall: crazy big bottle bomb. Too subtle.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle at Delirium Hoppy Loft, pours a clear amber with a very large beige head. Nose brings out lots of complex champagne yeast, light cherries and sparkling water. Flavour is certainly unusual, with loads of intense cherries, medium barnyard funk, and loads of champagne yeast. The brut nature of this dominates, though it certainly tastes like a lambic. Intensely high carbonation, which is a bit much for me, but it works well. Never had anything like this. Wonderful stuff.

Magnum thanks to Matt. Pours a cloudy amber ruby hue with thick frothy off white head that lasts leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong oak, cherry skin, and funk. Medium mouthfeel with strong funk, cherry, oak, easy to drink, very impressive.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 2008 Vintage
Tasted on 2/7/14 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle at the Friday night tasting at RBWG Asheville, big thanks to ygtbsm94 for sharing this gusher. Pours clear copper/pink with a huge off-white head that slowly recedes to average, rocky lace. The nose is pure sour cherry with a touch of vanilla and funk. The flavor is very sour and vinous, once again dominated by the sour cherry, a touch of funk and a hint of vanilla oak. The body is medium with super lively carbonation and a long vinous sour cherry finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle shared at Jack & Leighton’s Birthday Bash at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 13 April 2013. Thanks to whoever brought it along. Pink and highly carbonated - probably a bit too fizzy for my liking. Appealing tart cherry fruit aroma. Sharp, but not overly acidic on the palate. But a touch of sweetness and a vague cherry bomb candy impression in the flavour knocked it back somewhat for me. Somewhat different to the regular Oud Beersel Oude Kriek and probably just about on a par.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at the Downtown Inn Friday night fart/bottle share at the roach motel. Pours a nice rose color with a small white head that settles into a ring. Aroma of berries, vanilla, lactic acid, and sweaty socks. Flavor of berries, lemon, lactic acid, sour candy, and sourdough. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a tart mouthfeel. Decent, but didn’t blow me away.
