teorn88 (7472) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2016
Draft at the brewery from a decanter. It pours a clean deep ruby color with a small bubbly pink head. Aroma is funky lemony fruity sweet with plenty of cherries and grassy notes. Taste is also fruity and lightly funky grassy tart lemony, more cherries and almonds. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, tasty

A: Pours deep ruby red with little fizz and no head.little fizz and no head. N: Overwhelming horse blanket with only a faint hint of cherry. T: Horse blanket again with almost no detectable cherry now. Bracingly sour. Lemon notes appear. P: Little bit of cherry and sherbet try to make an appearance before horse blanket and farmyard smells take over again, going into a long, lingering sourness. O: Always a privilege to drink an artisanal lambic, and this one is right up there with the best I have tasted.

neongolden (1351) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2016 (On cask @ 3 Fonteinen Restaurant, Beersel, Nov 14 2015) Pours a very deep pink-tinged red with a short lived head of medium pink froth and no lace. Aroma of moderately heavy horse blanket/hay over kriek flesh and some pit with a faint acidic lemon touch. Palate is acidic with maybe just a little sugar, light lemon juice, kriek flesh, light skin tannins, some musty cellar and oak. Finish is pretty soft, light acidity, cherry lingers, a bit of herbal bitterness underneath. Lightish of body with no real carb. Not as juicy as the Cantillon kriekenlambic as I recall it. More wood and hay presence. Certainly a very drinkable and fairly complex kriek.
