375cl. Just opened. BBE 10/05/22 aroma of an old cask, cherry bark, cherry resin and cherry blossoms. Pours clear Rosé with champagne head. Barrel numbness and dryness. Some cherry, some yeast. What is extremely addictive is the yeasty seddiment - it is gently, dry and numbing, but not extremely sour. Once its gone, you carve more, but there is none... A bitt watery, and much closer to sparkling wine than beer. Strongly carbonated. Overall: cork does not hold. Check your bottles.

From notes. Tasted in December 2012 from a capped 375mL bottle purchased at Louisville Beer Store during Zwanze Day 2012. Pours hazy dark pink with a thick pink head that leaves average lace. The nose is all about dry, bright red cherry with some added malt and plenty of lemon peel. The flavor is not terribly sour, but very dry, tons of natural cherry, and just a touch of lemon bitterness. The body is medium with some sticky tannin, average carbonation, and a long tart cherry and lightly bitter finish.

Tasted at the Triple Rock Sour and Barrel Aged Fest on 2/10/2013. This Lambic pours a medium reddish color from the bottle. Medium sized head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, tart and funky. A medium bodied lambic. The malts are fruity and sweet, tart and funky. The hops are herbal. Tart cherry flavors. Nice balance. Good acidity. Decent carbonation. Very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is tart and a little funky.

Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Bright red pour with quick fading pink head. Tart and bretty cheesey kriek. Cherry fruit, but only dark and faint, not pungent or sweet at all. Not sour at all, just slightly tart and EXTREMELY dry on the palate. Nothing I would need to have again, but not bad.

Une kriek ? L’odeur est clairement celle d’un kriek. Elle est très portée sur la cerise, pas de complexité au niveau des autres arômes notamment des levures. C’est comme une séquence de goût, un goût après l’autre... rien d’extraordinaire comme souvent avec les mikkeler

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Muddy red-rust, thin white head, some lace. Aroma is of cherries, light tartness, some funk. Flavour is of some cherry tartness, small acidic, some fruit sweetness. Lightly acidic mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, light tartness. Pretty nice stuff.

stevoj (5055) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Was expecting something much lighter and instead got this gem. Cloudy ruby body with pinkish airy head. Aroma of fruit, wood and yeast. The yeast takes over in the taste, subduing the sweet cherries to the background. Dry and tart finish.

Now this is very good. I’m not a hug fan of lambic. Spontanale was a bit too funky for me. But here the sweet, sour cherry notes work perfectly with the sharp yeast. Delicious - I begin to see why Belgian beer is so popular.

10/5/2014. From bottle. Pours reddish brown with a pinkish head. Funky yeast aromas with sour cherries. Not overly tart and the cherry flavors are nicely balances and not artificial as in some other beers in this style. Very elegant!

Tydelig surhed i duft og smag. Fornemmer kirsebær. Lidt tynd i kropoen. Lidt kedelig.
