The flavour of Timmermans Oude Kriek, refermented in the bottle, is without comparison. The cherries from which it derives its taste and colour it features traditionally come from Schaerbeek. Slightly acidic and with a wonderful bouquet, this natural and hence unpredictable brew requires careful handling throughout its long maturation period. Created from a blend of old and young lambic, Timmermans Oude Kriek keeps for 12 years. Like Timmermans Oude Gueuze, this is a precious drink, available in a limited edition only !

Another post running club beer. Yum. Aroma or lemon, cherry, funk, and and red wine. Taste is a very sour cherry which eventually fades to funk and some bitterness. Some light leather and barnyard flavours as well.

pour from bottle at timmermans during toer de gueze 2017
hazy pale pinkish-beige with white lacing, very sharp, almost acetic aroma, very highly carbonated, earthy, cherry stones, dry, dusty, grainy, quite acidic. a bit of a struggle but aeons ahead of their sweetened stuff.

Czerwone, zamglone. W aromacie derka, skra, z tyłu wiśnia, czuć kwas. Generalnie przyjemnie, choć zapach nie jest zbyt intensywny. W smaku wiśniowa cierpkość, czuć nuty charakterystyczne dla krieka, lecz niestety wszystko dominuje ogromna kwaśność, wręcz octowa. Piwo średnio złożone, kwas przykrywa trochę pozostałe smaki. Choć lubię kwaśne piwa to tutaj jest przesadnie. Trochę szkoda, bo piwo przyzwoite

Uzupełnienie recki, brak dokładnych notatek.
Zapach przyjemny, wiśnia, w tle lekki koń i derka.
W smaku bardzo kwaśne, aż do przesady, ocet.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2017 Color fucsia, ms rosado si le da la luz, bastante turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco rosado de dos dedos de grosor (no mucha retencin). Carbonatacin a tope (menos presente en boca). Ms cuerpo del esperado (medianamente espesa en boca). El aroma es menos cido que en otras Lambic y no excesivamente agradable (cerezas, alcohol y un elemento que no logro situar y que me recuerda a alguna especia). En boca es bastante cida, con mucha cereza presente, aunque con un ligero deje medicinal que si bien no molesta tampoco aporta demasiado. Mayor acidez en regusto y postgusto (una verdadera explosin, al primer trago se me escap hasta una lgrima). Clsica y rica, pero no a la altura de las Lambic de verdadero nivel.

Bottle. Light ruby color, white head, fairly clear if you pour the top. Sediment in the bottom. Fruity aroma, slight funk, blu cheese, cherries. Flavor is sour cherries, funk, slightly bready. Lots of yeast character.

bottled in 2013, drunk in 03.2017 Not bad aroma of cherries, leather belt, barnayrd and some sauerkraut. Overly sour with vinegar flavor and throat feeling. Not too pleasant, not balanced at all

Idiosynkrasie (7318) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2017
375ml bottle. Cloudy, darkest ruby colour with small to average, frothy, diminishing, pink-ish head. Earthy and slightly sweet-ish, cherry aroma, tart-ish morello cherry notes, hints of raspberry, slightly tangy background with a touch of vinegar and mustard seed. Taste is tart, fruity, notes of morello cherry, citric tartness for the most part, a touch of vinegar as well; sour, adstringent finish, lively carbonation contributes its part to an overall sherbet character.

Brewhemia (301) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2017
Deep red color whith lots of quickly dissolving pink head. Lots of sour cherry aroma. The taste is very sour and quite salt with very clear cherry notes. Too acidic to my taste though I think it does have some charm. I expected it to be quite sour but was surprised by how salty it is also.
