hardly any head. cherry pie aroma, it’s like opening a jar of conserved sweetened cherries and putting your nose in it. lovely. light sweetness, medium sourness, very subtle carbonation, almost flat, could be a bit more sprinkly for my liking. Very much enjoyed it. top kriek!

Bottle @home, (Clear out the cellar evening). Pours purple/red, very thin pink head. Nose is cherry, farmyard, plum, sour. Taste is very much like the nose, big cherry, funky and sour.

Bardzo dobre piwo, ale nie urywające, fajne wiśnie, fajna owocowość, ale nie tak dużo lambika

Bought @Hopduvel Gent. Bottle 28/04/2016 Very intense indeed. Very fruity aroma. Very nice deep red colour with dark pink head which dissapears immediately. Taste is massive Kriek. Very profound taste. Sour, slightly puckering. Krieken all over the place, but still you taste the nice lambiek. Very well balanced. Palate is very complex, first the effect of the krieken which evolves in a nice lambiek aftertaste. Dry finish.

Funky barnyard and cherries. Sour and very fruity, rather sour in a way cherries are. Very tasty and balanced

superspak (5996) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2017
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/28/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red color with a 1-2 finger fairly foamy and fluffy pink head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tart/tangy cherries, cherry pits, almond, fruit skin, raspberry, lemon, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, grass, toasted oak, wheat, cracker, and biscuit; with light notes of leathery/musty funk, pepper, red wine vinegar, vanilla, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of cherries, fruity/earthy/funky yeast, oak barrel, and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart/tangy cherries, cherry pits, almond, fruit skin, raspberry, lemon, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, grass, toasted oak, wheat, cracker, and biscuit; with light notes of leathery/musty funk, pepper, red wine vinegar, vanilla, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness; with light fruit tang and yeast/oak spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy cherries, cherry pits, almond, fruit skin, raspberry, lemon, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, grass, toasted oak, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light funk/vinegar, pepper, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of cherries, fruity/earthy/funky yeast, oak barrel, and bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tartness balance, and zero puckering flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from tartness, spiciness, and fruit tang. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, fairly crisp/acidic, and lightly tangy/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is a fantastic Kriek lambic! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of cherries, fruity/earthy/funky yeast, oak barrel, and bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the mellowly acidic/tannic/drying finish. More of a balanced Kriek, but still has a lot of nice wild complexity and oak presence; with huge amounts of cherry fruit character. A highly enjoyable offering.
