For 6 months the flesh of the fresh sour cherries slowly digests in the Lambic. The intense flavour of cherries and light nuances of almond from the pits determine the flavour of this fruity delicacy.

Note: ABV from 4.5% to 4% at some point.

Deep garnet coloured pour with a fast-fading pink head. The aroma is really bright and fruity. Lots of intense cherry notes with some rich leathery notes and a touch of almond. Lactic and juicy with a great fresh flavour. Has some bright peppery notes as well. Really refreshing and tasty.

Vom Hahn in der "Hohlen Birne" in Potsdam getrunken. Ist zwar ein Industrie-Kriek, aber gut trinkbar.

[9/27/16] Bottle on a street bench in Brussels. As Vieux Bruxelles Kriek Lambic. Clear red color. Aroma of candy-ish cherries, marzipan. Sweet flavor, quite sugary, slightly tart, with cherry candy. Too sweet, but OK.

mikeyo1 (763) - Linkping, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2016
bottle @ home, 3 years old. Pours a clear red liquid with a medium light pink head. Sweet cherries on the nose with a slight tart character, hints of leather and malt. Taste is sweet initially with a tart, light acidic, lemon like finish. Low body, medium to high carbonation. Flavors of cherries, almond, lemon. The cherries are tart in the finish. All right, with a nice finish, although quite one-dimensional.

MatiF96 (121) - POLAND - SEP 6, 2016
Średnia rżowa szybko redukująca się piana. Aromat silnie wiśniowy, świeży, ale pojawiają się też nuty sztuczne. W smaku rwnież bardzo wiśniowo. Smak cukierkowy, słodki, ale skontrowany lekką kwasnością. Dość wytrawny finisz. Nie jest najgorzej, ale moim zdaniem zbyt słodko. Do najlepszych sporo brakuje

Deze kriek Lambic valt toch wat tegen. Dit komt voornamelijk door de nasmaak, alsof je op een kersenpit zit te bijten.

Gyorsan eltűnő kevske hab, gynyrű rubintpiros szn. Illata mint a prselt meggyl, egy hangynyi srs vonssal. Fenomenlis. Fanyar, savanyks, desks meggyl, a httrben lambicos rzettel, kiegyenslyozva a koml, s a fahord keserűjvel. Igazi nyri szomjolt dtő. Testes sr.
