Lovely horse blanket hints, but more like a lazy horse rather than a heavily worked horse. Smells like the horse is carrying large sacks of cherries. A ruby red color with a pale pink head, this hints at what it is without being obvious, not overtly pink or red. This beer has a wonderful way of bringing out the sourness of a lambic, but throwing in dashes of pine needles and warm fruit, one of a kind.

Aroma is cherries/berries, dry malts, mild sweetness and slightly musty. The flavor is cherries/fruit, malts and a mix of mild sweetness and big tart/dry in the finish.

Lightly cloud reddish, pink head. Funk, socks, some cheese. Light cherry and berry fruit. Lightly tart, decently sweet. Light body, chew, long finish. Awesome.

Aromat: słodko, lekkie wiśnie, winogrona, agrest i troche dzikości.
Smak trochę pusty. Kwaśne, mało dzikości, mocno nasycone.

Drank 13-07-17 with Koen & Cat (thanks for sharing!). Nice one! You can actually distill the fruits from this and the sour is really there but not too sharp. Really nice how the beer can have such rich taste with such low ABV.

Czerwone z różową pianą. W aromacie wiśnia, lekki kwasek. Z czasem wychodzi dzikość i odrobina skóry. W smaku owocowe oczywiście z wiśnią na pierwszym planie, do tego czerwona porzeczka. Jest dzikość i skóra, ale nie dominują, są bardziej z tyłu. Dobre, choć trzeba uczciwie przyznać że momentami lekko pustawe, wiele sie nie dzieje

I should preface this by saying that I love almost any and all Sour beers but this was absolutely everything that a Lambic should be. I was nervous about the deep red color, fearing that it would be too sweet at the expense of the rest of the character, but it was absolutely on the money.

Bb 2036. Gorgeous crimson with pink head. Vinegar and dank lambic aroma, cherry doesnt really come through. Forward strong lambic, cherries add a pleasant dimension but are more peripheral. Sour and puckering. A nice summertime treat, but not the best oude kriek Ive had so far.

PowY (758) - AUSTRIA - JUN 20, 2017
375 ml bottle. Pours a lightly hazy cherry red with a pinkish quickly disappearing head. The aroma is medium sour and fruity with dark cherries and some lemon and lightly yeasty - sweat, leather. Light to medium body with a high carbonation and a medium to heavy acidic sourness. The taste is full of lemon and cherries along with unripe grapes and sour berries in the background. The sourness is kind of lingering but not in an unpleasant way. Dry finish.

Giochaurand (533) - FINLAND - JUN 2, 2017
