MoritzF (9759) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 11, 2017
(bottle, 37.5cl) Deep red coloured hue with a short and pink frothy rim. Intense aroma of krieken-morelos with notes of almonds, accompanied by acidic lambic funkiness and shades of sweetness. Sour-tart flavour, light to medium bodied, soft on carbon. Acidic and intense cherry-fruity taste with funky notes, almonds, hints of marzipan, even some discreetly fruity sweetness in the background; lasting acidic-tart and cherry-fruity finish. Superb. 30.IX.16

Smells like nail polish at first, after some time it gets better and smells like cherries, leather, vinegar, vanilla. Rather high sourness in taste. If not for the vinegar, it would be a great lambic.
