3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light reddish-brown color reminds me of sun tea. No bubbles, just a few UFOs that I’m told are yeast from near the bottom of the barrel. Really? The bottom of the barrel never tasted this nice. Lightly sweet, musty and tart like cider from Granny Smiths, lightly acidic, a little rusty, somewhat dry. Refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy light orange. Fair off-white head. Gently grapefruity, certainly citric and quite clean lambic. Soft, hay-like, almost floral character. It develops fresh wheat tones that make it highly drinkable. Hugely refreshing, unpretentious and drinkable example.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At the brewery - 3 months old. Very hazy orange body without head off course. You can tell from the looks it’s very young. Sweet, little bit acidic aroma, smells still like wort. Very hoppy bitter, lightly sweet flavour. Quite ok, but a little bit older should be better.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2007 From a bottle at ZBF 2007. Thanks to mes for procuring this one. If the Oude Kriek didn’t quite seem the finished article, this certainly wasn’t. Hazy straw colour. The aroma didn’t have a huge degree of farmyard but there was a herbal, almost grassy character with a minty antiseptic undercurrent. Quite restrained acidity on the palate with more herbaceous elements. Soft mouthfeel (for a lambic), with a distinct sweetness. Unusual, but interesting, and not at all unpleasant.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Golden coloured. No head. Unclear. Fresh sweetness with a delicious underlaying sourness. Is quite tart and has some woody and barnyardy notes. Flavour is woody as well. Earth and barnyard. Great souness. Is quite mild on the palate. Has a grassy and woody sour end. I like this.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate:
Sneaky serving at ZBF thanks to Gert pulling out a plastic drinks bottle from the back of his stall. Cheers mate. Totally flat as you would expect, nice colour though. Apples all the way. Quite sour (as in off) apples in the nose. Almost rotting vegetation. Thankfully the taste is better. Sweet and tasty. A wonderful palate clearer and very refreshing after the days drinking we had. Kinda like cleaning your teeth with beer. Ok that sounds bad, it was good honestly. Odd stuff, very young. Not sure what else to say.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 Draft pour
Consumed at the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation, Opstal, May 2006
Very raw nose, sweet and sickly, slightly grassy, smells like brewery wort... very young and raw smelling, which I guess is somewhat remarkable. Uncarbonated, very sweet, like nothing but drinking boiled and cooled wort. Weird. Not repulsive, but not very good.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught. Pulpy orange body with a tiny, bubbly ring of head. The aroma is very ripe, yeasty, apples, pear, and banana fruitiness. Not particularly drinkable, IMO. It’s very sweet and underdeveloped.
Sampled at the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation on May 28, 2006.
