2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Couleur rougeâtre, apparence semi opaque surmontée d’une énorme mousse rose. arômes de sirop de cerise et de punch aux fruits, le comble de l’artificiel. Saveurs unidimensionnelles de jus de cerise, de gomme baloune et de friandises pour amuser les petits. Aucune caractéristique sauvage ni d’acidité n’est au rendez-vous. Carbonatation piquante prenant beaucoup d’espace, texture aqueuse. Ne devrait jamais pouvoir porter l’appellation de lambic. Bouteille 37.5cl (de trop), Délirium Café, Décembre 2005.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom’s place. Thanks DSG. Dark red. Sweet, sugary and cherry aroma. Sweet, sugary, a little cherry liquor in the mouth. Full body, syrupy, light fizz, deep cherry finish. Too sweet for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.375 l bottle from ’Belgiuminabox.com’, best before December 2016 (apparently bottled in December 2012). Clear, very dark red with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, pinkish white head. Sweetish, very fruity aroma of cherries, sorbet powder and some almond. Quite sweet but not overly so, very fruity and a little sourish taste of cherries, almond, a bit of oak and some sorbet powder, followed by a short, slightly tart and minimally vinous finish. Medium body, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite nice, not too sweet and with intense cherry flower, some lambic character left as well.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Tom L’s place. Deep red with a bit of pinkish foam. Big sweet jammy cherries aroma. Sweetflavor with cherries, sugar, faint tartness. Aroma is better than flavor, and quite sweet overall, but still very nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours in reddish amber body with low to none head. Aroma has cherry character, little bit white wine-like. Taste has cherry sweetness, almost no carbonation. The cherry flavour is really natural, you can feel the fruit. Very nice. Body is full with high carbonation. Well made for the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted side by side with dekoninck Oude kriek @ Belgiuminabox. This one ( kriekenlambiek ) is way more sweet, and way less carbo ( nearly flat) . Pretty complex, still hints of sourness. Pretty good

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a fresh 375 ml bottle. Careful opening these; the cork and cage shot off the second the wire was loosened.
Aroma is slightly sweet with some moderately strong, jammy, sour cherry notes. Some light oak and funk notes with hints of tropical fruit. As it warms a light funk appears.
Pours a dark red with some purple hues and a moderately large, thick, deep pink head that exhibits really nice retention and seems to barley recede. Moderate lacing and no legs.
Flavor is fairly sweet with quite a large cherry presence including some sour cherry notes. A bit jammy. Light funk and oak. Acidity is moderate with a light citrus presence. Some tannin flavor similar to blackberry skins is also present. Very fruity.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a very fruit forward beer that is fairly sweet. The fruit really hides the base beers funk and complexity making it a bit one dimensional.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear dark red with light pink head. Red wine, quite lactic, musty cherries, yoghurt, some wood and straw. Taste is light sweet with subtle almond bitterness and a light tart touch. Quite fruity, but more in a fruit-yoghurt sweet kind of way. Medium bodied with slight creamy feel and velvety carbonation. Decent stuff.
