xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Bottled oct 12, 2007. 375ml from Drankencentrale Rutsaert. Clear ruby red with small redish tinted white head. Aroma is real dirty, stinky, funk like sewage almost and I mean that in the best of ways, also cherry. Dirty, slight sour, real drinkable, slight cherry, more fruity and sour then anything else, maybe like dirty raspberry, off-dry. Medium to light body with nice pucker sourness. All around very nice and a pleasure to drink.

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2009
Light red body with a thin, light pink, head. Nose of sour (very sour!) cherries, with a good amount of wood and almond. Taste began with the slightest hint of rasperry and cherry, but the sour immeditely overpowered it, very dry, almondy finish. Wheu, waht a setp from Lindemans! Palate was very clean and quick to finish. I can enjoy it, but its not as pleasureable as Lindemans.

Funky. Dry. Various levels of funk rolled up in this one. Has a slight band-aid aroma to it. Cherries are almost undetectable. The other wild yeast flavors are much more dominate than the underlying sourness.

750 ml bottle. 2007 vintage. Clear, ruby color with a thin, bubbly white head. Aroma of vinegar and cherries. Flavor is really sour and tart. Some hints of cherries with a dash of oakiness. Finish is dry. Very nice.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2010 Bottle (2008). Pours a hazy pink with a small white head. Tart aroma of oak, cherry, coconut, vanilla and wood. The flavour is that same tart cherry, vanilla and oaky goodness. Beautifully balanced lambic with a lingering tart finish which is superb. Excellent.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2016 [ Bottle ][ Tasting ][ 750mL ][ Free ][ Sierra Nevada Tulip Snifter ][ 3/27/14 ]
>> 2012 Vintage. Pours a full haze, glowing neon pink, low pink foam. Nose is super pithy, more like LP Kriek than normal Kriek from memory, with bright dark cherry, cherry pie. Taste is much better than memory with big cherry pie, restrained citric bite, no acetic, big lactic. Really spot on acid medley wise. 4.0

Bottle (2007). Pours a beautiful translucent rose with a small pink head that fizzles down quickly. Some spotty lacing. Aroma is apple cider vinegar, sour cherries, and I cant tell much else. Taste is intensely sour even for a lambic. Loads of tart cherries. Watery mouthfeel. Finish is sour. Not my cup of tea but for lambic fans Im sure this is excellent. 6/4/7/4/15=3.6 1/22/2009

Bottle (1996). Hazy peach pink pour with good foam. Intense and sweeter cherry pie nose, vanilla. Taste is quite lemony and slightly harsh, not as juicy, citric forward. Overall, interesting to try.

BMan1113VR (7922) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 17, 2009
2007 Bottle. Pours with a purple head over a hazy glowing red body. Ring stays for a while and leads to some good lacing. Aroma of cherry, vinegar, barnyard funk and sulfur. Taste is, wow, bracingly sour, tart as hell (and this is on the night of a Lambic tasting!). Light cherry in the far back of the taste with a bit of funk. Dry and puckering with lightish, lively carbonation.

Pours with a red hue with no head whatsoever! Aroma is of cherries, sour aroma, with lots of vinegar. The flavor is of sour cherries, and vinegar. This is by far the most sour beer I have ever tasted! Definitely my style! Medium mouthfeel, with light carbonation! A great Lambik!

On tap @ Akkurat. Almost artifical (lemonade) red(pink-red) color. Smells vineager and cherry. Sour taste with some cherry sweetness. Well balanced.
