3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly strange aroma. Not sensing any cherries. Lovely color, reddish but still a beer, head is almost white. There is almost no sparkle in the glass but you can feel it nicely on the tongue. It does have a typical Timmermans´ slightly sour taste. Not bad, not too sweet, not too sour but I would appreciate a bit more taste of cherries.

Corked and caged bottle. Slightly dirty reddish pour with a off white head. Sweet artificial cherries, apple juice, raspberries, syrupy. Quite sweet and artificial.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330mL bottle at Kulminator, pours a clear reddish amber with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of cardboard and light cherries. Flavour brings out lots of artificial cherries, light residual sweetness and moderate acidity. Usual quality of a lambic from Timmermans, which isn’t saying much. Not good at all - bleh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
21/IV/14 - 37.5cl bottle from de Lambiek (Alsemberg) @ home - BB: 19/X/12 (apparently they sold this to me one or two months before it went bad, never noticed of course) (2014-378)
Clear ruby red beer, aery light pink head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet cherries, bit metallic, cork, bit of basement, more metallic. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: little bitter, sweet cherries, little sugary, lemony, citric acidity. Aftertaste: citric, bitter touch, metallic, sweet cherries, bit sugary. Not bad, but definitely not the best Kriek they ever made. If age should have changed anything, then it would have been by making it more sour, and having the brett eat the sugar. So I’m wondering if they pasteurize this beer...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Night of the Great Thirst (Eizeringen). Clear amber/golden with a medium off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is of sweet cherries, light hay, grassy notes and the usual lemony presence of Timmermans beers. Taste is slightly sour with sweet cherries (not extremely fruity though), lemon and grassy notes. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. That’s not bad actually. On the sweet side, but the balance isn’t horrible either.
