75 cl bottle, bottled in late December 2006. Deep orangey red colour, light pink head that was quickly reduced. Lambik aroma, some lemons and definitely wood. Cherry aroma is very discreet. When it comes to taste, cherry is more visible and mingles well with the lemony lambik. The finish is drier and quite woody. Medium body. Very drinkable and a nice addition to the world of oude krieks.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2015 75cl bottle shared by mesandsim at Reading BF 2007. Many thanks to the guys for bringing this back from the Tour de Gueuze. Reddy, pink, slight haze, pink lasting head. Some latent cherry bubblegum and it is really quite sour. Lovely creamy vanilla and cherry flavours.Re-rate. Funny, I remember drinking this at Reading now and remembering that I liked it. However, on a full 75cl bottle I must admit that I didn?t like it much. Bit of funk on aroma, bit of fruit, but mostly cabbage/vegetal aroma. Not much fruit throughtout, plenty of farmyard. I want jangly indy pop hop rather than this. 2.0/5.0 re rate 08 10 2015. Clear deep red no head it’s an interesting kriek maybe not a top notch kriek. Earthy funk aroma with some cherry. Decent cherry flavour in the mouth. It’s good far better than either of my previous 2 ratings. Sweetish fruit over a sour base beer. It’s decent if not top hole.

Bright episcopal red, with a small, rosy, whipped-cream head. Nice, inviting, saddlesoap nose, relieved by the fruit which is definitely red fruit, but defining precisely remaining difficult. Dry, very carbonated, but strangely discreet fruity flavour, again near-impossible to pinpoint. Dry, but not tart (enough). Few lambic traces orally. Medium bodied at best. Seems to lack some fruit juices to fill. This one is on the sharp of the knife - meaning exact in the middle of traditional and commercial. It’s not what I prefer, but it’s far from what Ioathe.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle kindly shared by mesandsim @ Reading Beer Festival 07. Pinkish colour. Almondy stones and cherrys on the nose. Slight sweet lurking. Good lambic sourness and flavours but not extreme.

diabel (1733) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2007
Bottle Hazy deep pink to red body. Slightly pink, frothy head. Head diminishes quite fastly,but leaves a creamy layer on the top of the beer. Looks very beautiful. Aroma of sweet red candy, cherries (both sweet and sour), raspberries: very fruity and tart. Very well balanced aroma. Lightly bitter, moderately sour flavour. Quite tart flavour with some cherry flavour. Certainly not sweet, but the cherries are not dominating at all (in the same way as Cantillon Rosé de Gambrinus where the raspberries give some fruity tartness to the beer). Nice beer, very well balanced and very refreshing. As a whole this beer is not very outspoken, but very subtle. I like this new addition to the traditional lambic beers.
