THANK YOU to dra19 for breaking into this at the tasting. Ive been looking at it on his shelf for a while, and he must’ve been drunk enough to say go ahead. Nice bright pour, with a puckering sour smell. The cherry flavor isn’t enough to overpower the sourness of it, like some lambics, which adds even more to the overall beer. Alcohol is a little high for a lambic, but you can’t really tell while drinking it. Very very nice.

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.

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.

Bardzo wytrawne, pestkowe, z lekko migdałowym posmakiem. Intensywne, ale przy tym lekkie, dobre, klasyczne.

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.
