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 !

Fark cherry red beer, good size pink head! Nose is cherry and raspberry, touch of lactose. Palate is dry, crisp and light. Tart sour cherry, unsweet sharp sherbet. Touch of lemon before a crisp finish. Tart and sharp but all right.

Leighton (18735) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle at home in London with Sander. Pours clear pink with a slight, fizzy white head. Great tangy cherry aroma, some skins. Super sour flavor, quite salty, lots of eye-twitch, lightly juicy cherry. Light bodied with fine, quick go carbonation. Short, clean and very sour finish, strong acidity, a fair bit of throat burn, more salty and tangy cherries. Pretty intense sourness overall. Not bad thought the fruit character isn’t especially deep.
