750ml green bottle, corked and capped. Pours an expected cherry red shade, holds a tiny pinkish head which rejuvenates itself. Aroma is cherry fruit with a sourish edge. Sour, tart cherry fruit flavour, sharp and acidic. Finish is bone dry, sweaty, acidic fruit notes in the back of the throat. Medium bodied with a tight sharp effervescense. A great tart and sour lambic.

300ml draught. Deep red with one finger pink head. Aroma is light acidic with cherries, cherry pits, almonds and very light funk. Taste is gently acidic with well integrated cherries, cherry pits, almonds, citrus, hay and light funk. Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation and very well integrated cherry aftertaste.

Aromat: skóra, wiśnie, kwas. Smak: zdziczały kompocik z wiśni, bardzo cierpkie, dość kwaśne, gdzieś tam zbutwiałe drewno, wysoko nasycone. Bardzo dobry kriek.

Grumlig, körsbärsröd med tunt rosa skum. Fin doft av körsbär (kool-aid!) Smaken medelfyllig, torr med mycket kolsyra Eftersmaken lång och ihållande sur.

On tap at Lambiczoon in Milan. Pours a solid maroonish purple. Grapes and sour fruit on the nose. Palate is that of weak juice, but the flavor is intense - heavily sour, but well balanced. Smooth.

I’ve been sitting on this for a couple years and after a 10 Km canoe ride, I came home for a shower and beer. I had tossed this in the fridge last week and today is the day to open it. Aroma is sour raspberry, earth, funk, and peach. Taste is cranberry, fucking acidic cranberry, then funk. The second and third pulls give some sweetness too, somewhat like blackberry and then some late bitterness. Th colour is a light and a little hazy, transparent red with an off white thin ringed head. The mouthfeel is puckering and a touch chalky. Brilliant.

Enjoyed at home. Looked forward this one. The big surprise is the amount of bitterness that this holds, you have to get used to it to fully grasp the rest of the tastes and the overall complexity. The aroma itself is pleasant and well balanced cherries with vanilla and some funk. The taste however also carries oak, vanilla, fruitiness along with the sourness and cherries. A lot more agressive than I anticipated, would have to have more to rate it again.

A really nice kriek. Aroma of the red fruit covers the stableness in the back. It is Lambic like acidic but yet less aggressive. I like it.

Pite z butelki 375. W aromacie bardzo mocna stajnia zmieszana z aromatem dojrzałych wiśni w smaku kwaśne wiśnie, typowe lambikowe nuty.

Hopmaestro (1654) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2017
Aroma is acidic cherries with lemon. Taste is up there, tart and rowdy with a cleansing sensation. Dry and rather bold in it’s acidy glory. Sour cherries take a choke hold on your taste buds, and when they let go, an almost lemony sourness swipes away any hesitations.
