3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crazy sour vinegar nose, smells like a stale musty barnyard with a hint of sour cherries. Pours a deep burgundy/brick red hue and makes a fizzy pink head. Flavor is vinegary, hint of sour cherries, tastes very much like a sour red wine... very tart and astringent, hint of cranberry. Light on the palate, coats the mouth very thin and finishes quite dry. Nice quality lambic, moderately complex, enjoyed this one.

Bottle. Picked up in a Brussels supermarket. Hazy, morello cherry red. Thin, lasting, pink head. Nose has tart, earthy cherry stone. Notes of almond. Soft funk. Cherry lips sweets. Taste is cherry juice earthy, tart and dry. Soft, foamy mouthfeel. Dry, and refreshingly cleansing. More cherry tartness on the finish. Nicely crisp and dry.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aged 10+ years. Poured into a taster showing ruby strawberry with sparse tanned foam.
The nose shows strawberries with very light notes of red wine dark fruits - think plums and cassis.
The palate is moderately carbonated, highly tart but balanced and restrained, a tea-like sweetness throughout with a mushroom-like background along with notes of oak/wood.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2012 bottle of Oud Beersel Kriek - made for export I guess. Beautiful dark brownish red with lively fluffy bright white head. Sweet aroma of cherries and cherry pits. Taste dry and earthy, whole-mouth tart (as opposed to sharp prickly tartness). I could drink this all day.
