COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 !

Timmermans Oude Kriek 5.5%
It pours a deep reddish brown with a thin fizzy head. The aroma is acetic, tart cherries, some woodsiness, a bit of sweetness but all around an attractive odor.
Very acidic, acetic vinegar sourness, cherries, almonds, man this is surprisingly acidic. I think it needs to be paired with something to cut the acidity or drunk in small doses.

VDuquerroux (1895) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle, sample 20cL. @Brugs Bier Festival. A sparkling dark red garnet beer with a medium white head ; poor retention. Intense cherry (wow!), acid(++), woody note. First medium sour, then sharp acute dry sour ; just a sweet note that makes it more drinkable. Light body, thin texture, average carbonation, fruity acid lasting finish. Overall, really good kriek ; very sour ; hard to drink but that was a pleasure. I was so disappointed with the sugary kriek and other Timmermans fruity beers, I didn’t expect this quality for this Oude Kriek.

tmrmwel (2289) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle, bottled 2014. Pours hazy red, with a small creamy pink head. Aroma is funky notes of cherry stones, fruit peel and berries, as well as cork, cellar and wooden bretty notes. Full body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is acetic, with musty notes of forest berries, fruit peel and tannins, as well hay, cork, bretty wood and a good dose of funkiness. Lingering acetic, funky finish.

Bottle at cafe Sara, january 15th 2015. Dark red body with a small redtinted head. Aroma of cherries, funk, candy. Taste is sour, berries and hay, with an acidic tart finish. A notch up from the regular timmermans in my opinion.

bottleforager (3211) - Gray, Maine, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Pours a deep vibrant cherry red color with a finger of pink foam. Nose is deep spicy cherry pie with layers of funk and earth must. Palate is way too sour for my palate. Burning throat acidity with lots of cherry flavor but just too much aceto and vinegar for me to enjoy.
