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 !

RexTalionis (2333) - FINLAND - JAN 4, 2013
Bottled, best before end of 2021. Pours reddish in color with a thin whitish head. Sour notes mixed with some sweeter notes of cherries in aroma. Tart mouthfeel. Wow, has to be one of the most tart krieks I’ve tasted so far. And yet there’s that kriek sweetness in taste as well. Nice. Sour, some cherries and even perhaps some lemony hints in aftertaste. Delicious. Sweeter towards the end.

Aroma is juice‐like with sugar, some earthy notes and metal. Flavour starts rather sour and tart but sweetness kicks in in the middle of the sip. Flavour has sugar, cherries and some gastric acid. The most tart Kriek in the tasting.
