COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The flavour of Timmermans Oude Kriek, refermented in the bottle, is without comparison. The cherries from which it derives its taste and colour it features traditionally come from Schaerbeek. Slightly acidic and with a wonderful bouquet, this natural and hence unpredictable brew requires careful handling throughout its long maturation period. Created from a blend of old and young lambic, Timmermans Oude Kriek keeps for 12 years. Like Timmermans Oude Gueuze, this is a precious drink, available in a limited edition only !

sebletitje (8789) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2016
Bouteille 75cl, anno 2012. Acajou presque pourpre, col fin blanc-rosé disparaissant vite. Arôme au nez fruité bien de griotte avec un rétro fin boisé, chêne et pas mal de tannins. Palais de griotte apportant une certaine dimension âcre et aigrelette. Le tout est accentué par un léger boisé qui confère une certaine sécheresse en fin de bouche. Petit fini citrique avec une dominance aigre qui est un peu trop sur le devant.

Mesjasz (748) - Lodz, POLAND - APR 18, 2016
Butelka. Piana znika jak w napoju gazowanym, kolor mętny i rubinowy. Lekki aromat wiśni, dżemu, minimalna szczypta funku. Smak lekko kwaśny pod względem kwasu mlekowego, za to mocno pod względem octowego. Smakuje trochę jak woda z ogórków kiszonych z sokiem owocowym. Dosyć słaba rzecz ale i tak lepiej niż słodzony lambik.

alteregoo (709) - POLAND - APR 17, 2016
Piany praktycznie brak, barwa czerwona, mętna. Aromat intensywnie wiśniowy, kwaskowy, taniniczny. W smaku mocno kwaśne, octowe, lekko cierpkie, orzeźwiające - wiśnie, woda z kiszonej kapusty i sok cytrynowy. Wysycenie dość wysokie, drobne. W afterteasie niewielka pestkowa goryczka i posmak starej beczki, szorstkie w odbiorze.
Poza fajnym, mocno owocowym aromatem i intensywną kwasowością brak tu odrobiny treści. Wyszło piwo dość wodniste, idealne do zaspokojenia pragnienia.

Icedwarf (1134) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2016
Robijnrood bier zonder schuim. Smaak is zuur en fruitig, kers smaak is niet prominent aanwezig. Niet echt mijn stijl.

tandembrauer (1015) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours clear red with quickly disappearing pink head. Aroma of cherries, leather, effervescent powder, lemon. Very dry and with extremely acidic sour and slightly umami taste. Thin bodied, high carbonation. Probably the most sour kriek I have ever had.

erickok (5031) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2016
Dirty cherry, umami, earthy, basement aromas. Strong sourness, really sharp ending. Like the aromas but the sourness is not as refined as the Catillons of this world. (33cl bottle from Comptoir Ferme de Mont-Saint-Jean)
