3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the brewery. Pours as beautifully as a kriek will ever be. Not the bright cherry red of cough syrup - but the red/orange that matches the aroma. Surprised by the intensity of the cherry. I'm thinking the freshness may have something to do with this. The palate leaves just a touch of off-putting acidity that is not the same as the Geuze or lambic.

375ml bottle from January 2017, consumed today December 2017. Beautiful rich clear pinky red colour in the glass, light pink head with nice lacing and retained throughout, turned cloudy when the remainder of the bottle was poured in. Aroma is full on ripe sour cherries and funky notes. Taste of ripe cherries, sour, tart, but some sweetness too, pleasant and inoffensive farmhouse notes, moderate to high acidity, more tart cherries in the finish. Light bodied and well carbonated.

A sublime beer that has changed my opinion on fruit lambics and sours in general.

I got this bottle in a trade with joe1510. Thanks Joe!
My first sample from this brewery...
It pours from the capped and corked(2007) 12oz bottle a cloudy light red colour with a small head of foam that breaks up quickly to just some spotting with some lacing/
The smell is super sour at first..nothing else hits my nose but after a few more whiffs, I can smell some cherry presence. Good nose for me, yeah.
The taste starts off the same as the smell..sour to the nth degree, especially up front. More sips in and the cherries, be they black or be they red, add a bit of sweetness to take a small bite out of the tartness, and there's a underling earthiness dealt out by the malt and that works well for my palate. Very well. Towards the finish is where I mostly notice the fruit; not over powering like the Kriek from Lindemans, which I consider more of a fruit beer, but defintely there and adding just the right flavour to keep this Lambic more true to style.
I think it's still light bodied but very close to medium, the carbonation is lightly but rightly done, and, being a fan of brews that travel into the land of sour, drinkability for me is in the upper stratosphere. This is one tasty and fabulous brew! Thanks again, Joe!!
Już w aromacie pojawiają się ładne wiśnie, charakterystyczna nuta pestkowa, stajnia jest wyraźna. Taninowość w posmaku zmienia się w nuty skórzane, nie za mocne. Ciekawe, warte spróbowania piwo. Bricktop86 (914) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 3, 2017
Pours hazy red with a fizzy pink head. Aroma of sour cherries, red currant, cinnamon and leather. Taste is medium sweet and heavy sour.

375 mL bottle, opened at Logan's. Pours a hazy, bright red color, with a small, pink head. Tart cherries dominate, with some vanilla, cloves, and yogurt. Not too sweet, with a smooth tart flavor. Light body, with a smooth, acidic mouthfeel. Simple, smooth, and wonderfully fruity. klakier (10) - Deurne (Antwerpen), BELGIUM - NOV 11, 2017

Compartida al club de tast de l'Olut (Sabadell)... típica làmbica dels de Cantillon però amb la mesura justa de cirera. silencifobic (90) - Sabadell, SPAIN - NOV 7, 2017
Shared bottle at Olut Sabadell. Neon dark orange, dark rosé with white head. Cherries and lambic aromas. Very interesting balance between sour and sweet.
