Oud Beersel Bzart Kriek Cuvée
Bottle: Served in a Teku glass: Full light pink head. Beautiful purple red body. Nose of cherries, wood, funk, yeast, wild yeast, hint of sweet cherries like a sprinkle of amarena cherries, light rotten wood. Flavour of cherries, light tart, some warmth, funk, light wood, more sour but also some sweet cherries, light cheese, wild tones, some malts and dessert red fruit tints. Aftertaste is red fruit, cherries, tart, funk and light wood. Medium carbo, creamy light tart mouthfeel, more than medium bodied. Delicious stuff! Considering ratings from 1 to 2 years ago, this must have seriously mellowed down. Very tasty!

Oud Beersel Green Walnut
Pierwsza warka 2015. Aromat typowy dla gueuze, tylko z lekkim wrażeniem liści, zielonego orzechu. Smak średnio kwaśny, wytrawny, z lekką słodyczą i ziołową goryczką. Fajne.

Bottle at home. Cork hit the ceilings it’s a massive bang! Deep ruby red with huge fizzy pink head that last for a while. Lots of sour cherries, mineral, some funk and hay, light dusty champagne, some chalk, sweet red fruits. Under medium sour, bit lighter sweetness with soft bitter finish. Medium bodied with quite some carbonation but it feels quite soft.

Piwo czerwone, lekko zmętnione. Piana szybko redukuje się do zera. W aromacie wyraźne maliny i kwaskowość. W smaku lekko kwaskowo, trochę słodkawo. Średnia pełnia, wysokie wysycenie. Przyjemne piwo.

Oud Beersel Oude Kriek
Bottle. I don’t know what to think about this beer. Really love sour beer, like Rodenbach Grand Cru, really love kriek beer. But this one wasn’t what I expected : think of it as a sour bier, but with unsweetened kriek. I think I love it (even though I love both style separately)

Oud Beersel Framboise
A 0.375 l bottle that poured lightly hazy red to copper body with a tiny head atop. Nice and strong fresh raspberry aroma, just like the real, wild ones from Bosnia I had a couple hours before. Flavor was only lightly sour, fruity with raspberry, dried fruits, touch of apple vinegar and leather. Medium bodied with light sourness in the finish along with some sweetness, too. Lightly chalky there. Pleasant enough, well made, although, unlike the most I guess, I would appreciate harsher lambic character.

Oud Beersel Bzart Kriekenlambiek
750ml bottle - shared by Helen - thanks!
Divine cherry aroma, full fruit cherries, still fleshy, black cherry, but no cherry-skin sharpness. Deep red, fizzy pinkish head. Lovely sharp palate, but unfortunately it’s very highly carbonated, and the carbonic acid leaches into the taste too. Lambic is low, cherry’s quite low, but the balance is good. Swirling the carbonic acid out lets the cherry return for a delicious finish, now getting everything from the cherry skin to the stones. Yeah, swirl that fizz out, it adds nothing, and actively subtracts. Undeniably very good, but I still think the Schaerbeekse and Lou Pepe dominate this.

Oud Beersel Schaarbeekse Oude Kriek
Bottle bought @ Hopduvel IIRC. Pours hazy deep ruby red with a small frothy pinkish white head that leaves some sparse trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is heavy fruity and slightly funky with cracker, caramel, lemon juice, heavy sour cherries, hay, dry soil, barnyard, horse blanket and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, sour, heavy fruity and funky. Mouthfeel is sparkling, dry, tart and medium bodied. Finish is sour with sourdough crackers, lemon juice, lime juice, heavy sour cherries, hay, dry soil, barnyard and lemon zest. Intense sour cherry character. Bit lacking in complexity. Lovely still.

Oud Beersel Oude Kriek
From a bottle into a Rodenbach Grand Cru glass. Pours a murky cherry red with pink-red head and minimum lace. Aroma of fermented dark cherry juice. Big carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of a tart cherry soda with slight alcohol, grains and old hops. Overall rich and tart but not mouth puckering or as difficult to enjoy as many sours. I’ll admit...I used to represent this brewery in California and have seen the label and perhaps the taste change over time, but as a cherry lambic this stands tall as drinkable alone or with food, fresh or aged. She’s a beauty!

Draught @ Koelschip. Amber with a red glow and a pink, dense head. Solid aroma of raspberries and cellar. Flavour is raspberry sweet with only a little tartness. Lovely stuff and easy to forget it’s actually beer.

Oud Beersel Framboise
Bottled in late 2012. Funny they don’t mention more that they also ad 50g/l of cherries. Enormous thanks heavy, shared with him & some others. Clear red-amber body with a tiny white head which vanished immediately. Enormous raspberry, fresh aroma, jammy notes. Mild, light raspberry taste, some dried fruit, low tartness, a touch of tea. Quite interesting and more "pedestrian" than expected, but still a very good beer.

July 2016 - Cork and cage bottle picked up online and shared at Craft Beer Co Islington as ’Oud Beersel Schaarbeekse Oude Kriek’. Deep red, lightly sparkling, small pink head doesn’t endure. Aroma is deep rounded cherry, light vinegary notes. Body is smooth with light carbonation. Taste has more deep cherry, some beetroot, light lemon. Has a lovely rounded flavour without being too tart or acidic. Great stuff. (4.2)

Oud Beersel Oude Geuze
En fût à L’Autre Œil le 8 juillet 2016. Le liquide se présente blond / doré avec une toute petite mousse. Au nez c’est très acidulé et fermier.En bouche, les premières notes développent des accents forestiers, des notes de sapin, de vert, accompagnées d’un fruité aux notes complexes. Nous avons droit à toutes les composantes des levures sauvages avec les notes de vieille ferme, de crin de cheval, de vieux cuir. Une bière très relevée mais aussi douce à la fois.

Hazy golden colour, nice head. Weak aroma of grass, hay, a little herbs. Taste is grassy, slightly hoppy with a little cardboard and a strong citric note. Weak body, watery. Nice carbonation that makes the beer seem refreshing, especially together with the dominant sour taste. Nothing interesting in this brew. No need to drink it again.
