Acidic almost vinegar like in the aftertaste. St first I thought the beer was sour, but then I realized this is how the beer was supposed to taste. While I like to lactic acid flavor I was not expecting it as much from this beer. Visually the bee was excellent. I will want to try this one again on another evening.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2014 After the succesful launch of Timmermans Oude Gueuze, it came as no surprise that John Martin proceeded with an ’oude kriek’, equally limited in production. Thin and quickly dissolving, pale pinkish head, colour a ’dirty’ and brownish dark red. Complex fresh fruitiness, sour cherries, wine vinegar, wet hay, lemon juice, strawberry, plums, chalk, wood. Sharpish vinegary acidity in the onset, lots of fruit with a very strong presence of genuine sour cherries, soft wheaty background, very refreshing, complex woody and sherryish finish, mellow with a somewhat subdued lambic funkiness, spicy dry tart finish with a slight sweetish hint in the finish, along with woodiness but low bitterness. Rather accessible oude kriek I would argue, but true to its style with enough complexity to stand up against the greats, but without actually equalling them.

0.375l corked bottle shared with The Tasting Crew from 2013. This one pours a quite cloudy but good looking reddish purple colored body with a quickly fizzing away pinkish eventually sidesticking head. Mmmmm.. Nice, no really nice aroma. Lots of sharp cherries with a woody slightly acidic tart background. Mild hints of red wine vinegar and sorrel. Yeah, really nice. Tastes really good also. Really fresh and refreshing flavors. Lots of wood here, slightly earthy in a way and it has a really fruity sour cherry theme all the way. Mild oily in the mouth and just above average on the carbonation. Definitely refreshing. Cherries and a little almond essens in the back. The taste is not letting go easily in the mouth. Acidic almost vinegar like in the aftertaste. Quite a flavorful one this! 08.10.2014
