Special treatment of De Cam Kriek Lambik for the Kerstbierfestival of 2007. A kriekenlambic made analogous to glühwein, served at 65° C, spiced with cinnamon, bayleaf and cloves and sweetened with honey. No head, flat, deep red colour, pure lambic and sour cherry taste but strongly softened by the sweet honey and the spices, lending it a bit of cloyingness and a medicinal taste, respectively; oily cherry stone and woody lambic accents still noticeable in the distance. Interesting ’gadget lambic’ and nicely warming in winter, but I prefer the straight, regular kriekenlambic. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 5, 2011

2007. Deep ruby red colour, with no head. Aroma is a lot of Xmas spices along with cherries and some burnt sugary notes. Flavour is cherries, a bunch of spices as well as some mild nutty notes. Pleasant and very Xmassy.
Mein 3. Glühkriek.
Zimtgeruch. Im Vergleich zu den anderen Glühkrieks ist dieses nicht so stark gesüßt, so dass noch der saure Grundton durchdringt. Im Mittelteil kommen zuerst Kräuter stärker zum Tragen, danach wird das Bier aber spürbar künstlicher und wirkt so übertrieben. Trockener Abgang.

Warm from draft at Kerstbierfestival 2007. A red beer a bit murky with no head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of cherries and cinnamon. The flavor is very sweet with notes of cherries and cinnamon, leading to a dry woody and cherry finish. Underneath is a nice acidity.

RB# 2500: From tap, warm, Kerstbierfestival 2007 in Essen/Belgium. Pours deep red with a little shortlasting pink head. Cinnamon, cardemomme and cloves spices in the aroma, mild cherry note. Flavour is spiced of the same spices as in the aroma, tart cherry flavour, citric to acid which made me shiver. Lingering berry finish with a light acidity. Lovely - most memorable beer from the 2007 Kerstbeerfestival along with the Duvel Tripel Hop. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2007

Cloudy blood red with a thin bubbly head. Spiced kriek aroma with lots of cinnamon. Tart and spicy flavour with just a light sourness and a lovely sweetness. Awesome, how can anyone not love it? Hot, almost fluffy kriek. Absolutely fantastic. Stunning quaffable velvet mouthfeel. Looks like the initial experiment did not work so well but this year it was glorious.
Sampled at the Kerstbierfestival... Reportedly a different recipe this year. Sour cherry nose. Somewhat flat and thin, but with a full fruit flavor of tart pie cherry, just an edge of sweetness to keep things reasonable. Warm and delicious. Wim (3980) - Weelde, BELGIUM - JUL 5, 2007

Bottle served hot @ Kerstbierfestival 2006 in Essen, BE. Dark red color with a smal pink head. Aroma is glögg with cherries with spices like cinnamon, clove. Flavor is heavy bitter, cherry with some lambic notes. Not my favorit warmed kriek !
