prawlie (1578) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2011
Bottle at the Delerium Cafe in Brussels. Light red/brown with short lived head after a vibrant burst when poured. Smells very lambic. Very sour. Gets easier to drink after a couple of swigs.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Dark red-purple, small bubbled pink head. Cheesy soft cherry nose, medicinal and a bit spicy in cinnamon. Flavor is very sweet light rubber and dust leading at the front and followed by cherry at the mid, which becomes rindy in the finish. Low carbonation, lightly stinging bitterness. Overall its too sweet and uncarbonated, though a ton of the cherry flesh is captured in the flavor, particularly the mid-palate.

Countbeer (6558) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2011
Draught: Vast pink head on top of a darker pink rose beer. Smell yeast, cheese, red fruit, cherries and a hint of nuts. Taste is a lovely mix of cheese, cherries, hint of other red fruit, yeast, something yoghurt a like, barnyard, light sweet, some wood and herbs. Lovely sour fruity aftertaste. Low carbo, full body, soft mouthfeel and a watery texture.

Martinus (4597) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2011
Quite hazy cherry red colour, no carbonation, no head. Aroma pronounced fresh cherry with fruity cantillon lambic background. Some almond / cherry stone touches. Flavour is quite sweet fresh cherry, very pleasant fresh cherry. Well balanced tartness. Lingering cherry in the finish. Reminded me of early summers eating fresh krieken at my grandmothers place when I was young. Very nice, enjoyable spring beer.
(27 May 2011. Glass at the brewery. Very young kriekenlambik, with thanks to Dan Ashley and friends for sharing)

Koelschtrinker (19789) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 30, 2011
Suerlicher marmeladenantrunk, der insgesamt wssrig wirkt. Durchaus ausgewogen und stimmig, zum Ende auch wieder aromatischer. Eine im Antrunk vorhandene hintergrndige Se verschwindet zum Ende wieder. /10/11/11//10

kermis (12767) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2011
On draft at Moeder Lambic, Brussels. Slightly hazy red pour with lasting pink head. Aroma of spur cherries and almonds. Expected sour cherry flavor but with an unexpected sweetness balancing it off.

77ships (9398) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 (05/08/2011) [email protected] Moeder Lambic: crimson head with an extremely lasting pink head, smell is that of sour cherries, taste starts out with mainly acidic & some slightly sour cherries and is followed by a surprising almost like sweet but not quite yet there cherry flavour, very different from the normal version, much better than the regular one on tap but slightly below an aged bottle of the regular one, either way this is an amazing beer///// [email protected] 2011: less impressive than the Chez Moeder Lambic one, seems a lot yonger, flat, no head, bit one dimensional & acidic, still very good but not as mindblowing, rating is for the Chez Moeder one ////////////// Noting that the one @ Chez Moeder Lambic is a different beer, more kriek, I think 300 gram if I am not wrong, fruitier + faint cinnamon note. Really, really good stuff. Both are great, prefer the Moeder one. /////////////////// Have had it many, many times on draft since original notes. Many times at Moeder & several times @ brewery. 4.8 -> 4.9 for this one, rating the Moeder version.

bierkoning (13145) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2011
Cask @ Chez Moeder Lambic Brussels. Sold as Cantillon Kriek Cuve Moeder Lambic. 300 grammes of cherries per litre, says the proud and knowledgeable landlord. Cherry and marzipan in the aroma. Sweet cherry flavor, sourish with cherry pits and almonds. marzipan. Oak. Good complexity. Long aftertaste. Luscious and delicious.
