COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer has instant appeal thanks to the hue of its ancestral garb and its fruity aroma which is so pleasant to the nose. Its flavour – bitter but with a very slight sweetness – recalls how pleasant it is to drink a beer that’s saturated in history. Timmermans Tradition Kriek Retro is to be savoured in the same way that one beholds a painting by Breughel.

Thanks for sharing Kapusil! Sour yeast plain old lambic aroma, not really getting cherries. First sip: Nice mild cherry with even sourness. Very light sour lambic, sweeter, but not too sweet. More and more sour with subsequent sips. Nice sour cherry palate. Still not my favorite style but really quite nice and refreshing; both in taste and in as a change of pace in beer styles.
