2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (75cl): going to take me a long while to get used to this style. As a winemaker this has almost everything I try to avoid. I suspect this is what the style should look like so I’ve taken it easy in my scoring.
Red brown color. Cloudy and no head. There is a light spritz. Aromatics take the cake. Volatile, slightly mould, must, old oak. Maybe a hint of decomposing fruit. Dry, extremely sour and no bitterness. Medium light palate. Long acid finish. Mousey and dirty. Very old world.
Technically this is faulty and crap. I’ll come back and score again when I have more experience. For the moment it hurts to give this score.
Bottle. Hazy deep red color without head. Acidic aroma of cherry, cellar and wild yeast. Very dry, acidic, bitter taste. Medium thin body.Grzesiek79 (4316) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 25, 2017

Vintage 2007. ten years old lambick, 7 years in my beer cellar. 375ml half champagne bottle. Bez piany jak wino czerwone wytrawne bardzo ciemna bordowo-buraczana barwa. Kwasne octowe, ocet balsamiczny, nieco sliwki wegierki. Zdecydowanie wytrawne i bogato wisniowe piwo. Zapach bardzo szalonych drozdzy i fermentujacego cieplego wisniowego kompotu. Klasyk niemal idealny, po latach super wrazenia, takie ze najdrozsze wytrawne czerowne wina moga sie schowac w cieniu tego kieliszka od Lindemansa. beerplace (1737) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2017
750ml bottle (thx, Alex G.!) shared with wife. Pours a reddish brown with a rose head. Aroma is cherry and balsamic vinegar. Similar taste. Too much balsamic in this one. MetalNHopHead (2020) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUN 21, 2017
Hanssens Oude Kriek is a brilliant example of the Belgian Fruit Lambic. Aroma reveals high levels of both funkiness and fruitiness. Pour is little darker than your average Kriek. Tart cherry, vinegar, sherry, and barnyard flavor notes. Dry, vinous, and acidic feel. I certainly would be tempted to save a bottle for a very long time and see how it matures.

A- Cherry, pool water, tart.
A- Dark red color, clear liquid, light pink head.
T- Sour, tart, funky, cherry.
P- Light body, average texture, medium carbonation, tart finish.
O- 3 years aged before bottling and 2 years on the shelf. At 5 years this was pretty good. Can’t imagine if I actually held it for 30 years. Still a little to funky for me but good.
