The Fonefan/Brugmansia Cnudde tasting. It’s a nice dark red beer, a bit like homemade strawberry juice, and the head is nice. The aroma has notes of yeast, barnyard and fruit. The flavour has notes of yeast, light barnyard, berries and light sweetness. It’s refreshing, but the sourness is a bit sharp. Courtesy of Fonefan/Brugmansia.

Muddy dark red/orange beer with a disappearing white head. Horseblanket and a hint of cherry and almond in the aroma. Acid and tart flavour with just a little cherry, the way it should be.

Draught. Deep red coloured. Big natural cherry aroma with quite some acidity. Fresh acidic flavour with loads of real cherries. Rather creamy mouthfeel. Some buttery notes in the finish. Medium bodied. Very pleasant and thirst quenching.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
No date is notched on the Best Before label, but the latest it goes is 2000, so I’ve got to imagine this to be at most a 2000, with the possibility (and probability) that it is actually more like a 97-99. Anyways, 750mL bottle consumed by myself on 8/17/2005.
Smells of band-aids, bretty and dry, with a light medicinal funkiness. Cherry-raspberry jam flavor on the end. Big ruddy-raspberry flecked beige colored head that quickly fizzles down, but remains about one-finger high. Intensely tiny bubbles and a very hazy/opaque deep strawberry color. Aroma out of the glass is powerful and very interesting. Tart, funky, wooly-dusty aroma. Much similarity to a kriek lambic. Flavor is rubber, plastic, tart, tart yeast and a dry sourness on the end. Lemon-rind and medicine and black pepper. Good lord this is tart! Extremely dusty and medicinal. Very dry and seems quite attenuated, though I know this stuff is very old, so that explains that. Really well-made, though. Not watery, or overly yeasty. Probably the most incredible part of this was what happened upon adding the yeast shot to my glass. Bigger, sweeter flavors now with a wonderful, chewy yeast and cherry-pie flavor. It does quite the opposite of dulling the flavor. REALLY good at the bottom of the bottle. Alcohol becomes somewhat noticeable. Soft and fuzzy cherries, alcohol undertones, some bits of honey or maybe just cherry sweetness. With the yeast shot, this beer is second to none! Sweet, mellow, soft and juicy; just perfect really. I’d be crazy if I didn’t think this as good as most krieks (lambic or no lambic). Not quite on the level of Cantillon, perhaps not the mouthfeel and very well developed bacteria and sourness that I enjoy, but quite incredible in its own right. Thanks for the tip, David!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
07.26.05 750ml bottle, no date on bottle. Raspberry tinged amber pour with tall off-white head and minimal lace. Aroma is sharp, funk, brett, wood (stem), and quite a bit more cherry than I expected. Palate is lively, very light, alive with effervescence, as brisk as a champagne. Flavor seems as much about the palate as it is about taste as this beer is certainly intended to refresh, and at that it excells. Dry weed field, cherry pit, empty horse barn. It’s fun, but nothing to write home about.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Rather unusual kriek not based on lambic, wit or sour ale. Actually I get a more spicy sensation - dare I say.... Orval? Has the same dry spicy, bitterness - without the slightest touch of sweetness. Hazy, pale red with a small white head. Dry and rather tart cherry notes. Very quenching. 280398
