pours red with a bit pink in it . small , big bubbled white ’ foam ’ smell is cherrys alright ! More reminding to lou pepe kriek , than to cantillon kriek . wich is a vry good thing ! taste is dry cherry’s . very pure . just like the raspberry lambic, there’s not much sourness coming trough , but there is funk . dry back , Still the cherry’s overpower the sourness and funkyness . very nice !

Tap at Akkurat, courtesy of bartender as a closing to our night. It pours a hazy ruby colour with a small pinkish head. Aroma is ripe cherries and little funky complexity. Very cherry forward. Taste is mildly acidic and still has some sweetness from the fruits. Again, pretty straight on cherries. Light in body with soft carbonation. Overall, would make for a fantastic happy hour drink but lacking the complexity of the kriek. Resembles the Intense Red for how straightforward the cherries are in this one.

On cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours a brilliant shade of cloudy red with about a fingers worth of frothy pink head. Good head retention as i drink my glass. Nose is explosive cherry goodness and that dominates the olfactory senses. Much along the lines of Lou Pepe Kriek, only it seems that they use other cherries in addition to scharbeekse. Taste is heavily fresh cherry as well, some light backing lactic tartness, but it’s mainly just from the cherry. Light mouthfeel, light tartness, light acidity, and a long finish. Fantastic beer! I still probably prefer LPK just slightly, but this is right there.

Tap at Moeder Lambic St Gilles. Beautiful color. Amazing cherry taste, with lime/lemon flavors, a bit of vinegar Found it very bitter and loved it.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 20.04.2013, tap @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas:
Frisk fruktig lukt med preg av malt, humle, bringebær, kirsebær, litt bærskal og gras. Frisk lett syrlig fruktig smak med preg av malt, humle, bærskal, friske bringebær, gras, kirsebær, syregras. Middels bitterhet som set litt. Veldig god.

Draft at Moeder Lambic, 09/30/2013. Earthy red pour, strawberry cream head, considerable retention. Aroma is fresh cherries, mild funk, yeasty, yet round, earthy vanilla with oak. Taste is dark sour cherry, juicy, not overly aggressive in tartness or acidity, lambic notes in the finish. Thin body, yet coats the tongue. Tasty.

On draught as Cantillon Cuvee for Zwanze Day at Avenue Pub! Pours a brilliant hazy reddish pink with white-pink ring of lacy head. Aroma is huge tart fruit, cherries and raspberries, with a hint of funky barn house yeast. Taste follows, tart, funky, awesome cherries. Dry and champagne like, but still very refreshing. Awesome!

Tap at Moeder Lambic St. Gilles. Pours a rich cherry red color with big pink head. The nose is massive sweet cherry fruit, orange, and tart cherry dessert. On the palate, huge flavors of cherry fruit are balanced with some lemon/lime, and perhaps a little funk, but this beer is really just about the cherry. Not overly sweet, nice clean finish.
