For 6 months the flesh of the fresh sour cherries slowly digests in the Lambic. The intense flavour of cherries and light nuances of almond from the pits determine the flavour of this fruity delicacy.

Note: ABV from 4.5% to 4% at some point.

[9/27/16] Bottle on a street bench in Brussels. As Vieux Bruxelles Kriek Lambic. Clear red color. Aroma of candy-ish cherries, marzipan. Sweet flavor, quite sugary, slightly tart, with cherry candy. Too sweet, but OK.

bottle @ home, 3 years old. Pours a clear red liquid with a medium light pink head. Sweet cherries on the nose with a slight tart character, hints of leather and malt. Taste is sweet initially with a tart, light acidic, lemon like finish. Low body, medium to high carbonation. Flavors of cherries, almond, lemon. The cherries are tart in the finish. All right, with a nice finish, although quite one-dimensional.

Średnia różowa szybko redukująca się piana. Aromat silnie wiśniowy, świeży, ale pojawiają się też nuty sztuczne. W smaku również bardzo wiśniowo. Smak cukierkowy, słodki, ale skontrowany lekką kwasnością. Dość wytrawny finisz. Nie jest najgorzej, ale moim zdaniem zbyt słodko. Do najlepszych sporo brakuje

250ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Deep red colour with a pink foam head. Aroma of sweet dark cherries. Taste is sour cherry, sweet sugary, berry, almond, with some straw notes. Light to medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry tart finish. Quite OK.

Deze kriek Lambic valt toch wat tegen. Dit komt voornamelijk door de nasmaak, alsof je op een kersenpit zit te bijten.

Fules (825) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 20, 2016
Gyorsan eltűnő kevéske hab, gyönyörű rubintpiros szín. Illata mint a préselt meggyléé, egy hangyányi sörös vonással. Fenomenális. Fanyar, savanykás, édeskés meggylé, a háttérben lambicos érzettel, kiegyensúlyozva a komló, és a fahordó keserűjével. Igazi nyári szomjoltó üdítő. Testes sör.

Nurmis (420) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours ruby without head. Aroma of cherries, not as and strong and crisp than some other cherry lambics. Medium to heavy sweetness. Still good.

popiela (565) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Butelka 0,25l, a z niej przyjemny aromat wiśniowy, trochę siana i konia. W smaku. Dość obfita, ładnie oblepiająca szkło piana. Klarowna czerwień. Ze szkła również przyjemny aromat. Delikatna kwaśność w smaku, trochę wiśni, trochę stajni. Nawet przyjemne.

fst0912 (52) - GERMANY - JUN 12, 2016
Angenehmes Kirscharoma, Geschmack aber etwas süß, weitgehend ohne biertypische Hopfen- oder Malznoten, es überwiegt eine fassbrausenartige Fruchtsüße

Taste and smell both have too much cherries. Tastes more like cherry juice than beer.
