4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sample at SBWF 2011. Bottle. Red/pink, cloudy liquid with small light pink head with absolutely no retention. Aroma is sour with notes of cherries, apples, barnyard, horseblanket and lemons. Fruity. Taste is highly sour, tart, very dry with very low bitterness. Notes of cherries. Huge complexity, really nice. Medium bodied with low carbonation and dry mouthfeel. Really tasty one, feels complex and almost balanced even though it’s very sour.
750ml bottle. 2015. Pours dark, almost bordeaux red colour. Moderate pinkish white head. Funk, barnyard, buttery, almondy cherries, slight acidity and sourness in the aroma. Barnyard and cherries at first. Notes of almonds, cherries. Buttery notes. Rather dry finish. Cherries are beautifully in present. Juicy palate. All the classical characteristcs of schaarbeekse cherries are there. Wonderful kriek. mikeyo1 (883) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2017
bottle @ home. Cellared 7 years. Pours a clear red color (with hazy sediment in the second half). Aroma of cherries, cherry kernel, lemon, leather, some vanilla, barnyard and hints of vinegar. Sour, acidic taste with clean layers of sour cherries. Also leather, lemon, horse, earth. Not overly complex for a lambic but very nice cherry character. czlowiekmotyka (576) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 11, 2017
Super intensive cherries in the mouth. Aftertaste is a bit tart but quite swift. Not that different from regular oude kriek but more intensive. pjotrapostou (412) - POLAND - NOV 10, 2017

Bottle at the brewery. Arnaud treated us to a tasting of this and what a beer (and what a guy too). It is absolutely stunning. Cherries galore, one could feel they are eating off the tree in the fields. It is a masterclass of a beer from a guy who is so so passionate about his beers. Added a whole new dimension to my appreciation of this brand. sokuzs1 (1644) - POLAND - AUG 20, 2017
