mariuspoenari (2090) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2017
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fonrainas. Hazy bright red with a tall pink head with surprisingly good retention. Notes of cherries, bitter cherries, almonds, lambic funk, mild acidity. Lighter in body than the normal kriek and feeling a bit more fresh.

From notes. On draft at Moeder Lambic Original on November 11. The pour is a bright ruby color with a huge light pink head and a couple soapy traces of lace. The aroma is surprisingly funky. There is a good fruit skin to it, but the tartness really isnt there. Its strong on the funk, per the usual for Cantillon. The flavor is fantastic. Its like tart cherry pie filling. There is a light funk, but the tart cherries are huge. The skin is nice, and there is a solid oak to it as well. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a bright carbonation with a lingeringly tart cherry with a bit of funk. I like this a lot!

slowrunner77 (11289) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 10, 2016
Brilliant red with a very nice cherry nose. Assertive, but not so much as to put it out of balance. Better than the standard kriek...both fruitier and funkier, and a touch short of the Lou Pepe (an all-time favorite).
