2.88/5  rDev -29.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Green cork and caged 0.75 litre 2007 bottle.

The colour was a true Victoria Plum purple, the beer produced a purple/grey collar too.

The aromas given off were plentiful, cherries, sweet cherries, Bakewell Tarts and mens groins!

The taste was of sour, oh so sour old cherries, it was vinergarous and difficult to drink in more than a small sip at a time.

By the end of the tasting I had a pain behind my ears, the sort you get from trying to blow up ballons. That can't be right can it? This was one of the most acidic drinks I've ever had. I have tried to score according to style (with a personal slant on it)

look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Insane un-oxidized blood red color that sits devilishly still in my glass with an impressive lacing. Deep syrupy black cherry bouquet rises up from the glass. Sourness is similar to the geuze. Refreshing one dimensional and light with a big cherry pit taste. There is a bad crab apple flavor in the finish though that puts a downer on it for me. Otherwise it's an interesting kriek. I've never seen such an intense color before.

Thanks to Momar42 for the unavailable in 'Murrca surprise! Part of a 750mL bottle poured into a Cantillon tulip. Notes from last night's Skins/Cowboys game.

A: Pours a dark plum color with a shit ton of ugly sediment floating about. The head is an awful looking lavender film floating on top of the brew with big bubbles and general ugliness.

S: Very earthy, to the point of being 'dirty' smelling, almost even fungal. Light cherries and acetic tartness comes through in a timid manner.

T: It's far more tart in the flavor profile. This one starts with cherries briefly - then BOOM! Acetic, vinegary sourness bombards the palate - I'd reckon the balance is 85% tart, 15% sweet cherries. More of the earthy qualities from the aroma appear later on to finish the brew off. Shame it came after three excellent gueuzes, because this one really spoke to my sour tastebuds very well. It just couldn't measure up regardless.

But compared to the fruity, Arbor Mist-esque (artificial) sugar bombs Lindemans is wont to creating, this is a damn godsend.

M: Not as dry as the gueuzes I just sampled - but just as tannic, if not moreso. As such, it comes across a little harshly. If anything, aging this should give it a more delicate subtlety to the palate qualities.

O: I love the sourness this is providing. If I didn't just have a trio of quality gueuzes, this would probably score a little higher, as unfair as it sounds. A year of age should round out some of its rough edges a touch.

Purchased from Plonk in Canberra. Shared with @tobeerornottobe.

Pours a deep curranty red colour, with a sudsy, but ultimately rather filmy head of pinkish foam. Body is light, but supports what it's going for. It's not a huge looking beer, but it's solid for the style.

Nose tends towards the sweet fruit, with some crushed berry character mixing with the tart cherry aroma, but very little actual lambic acidity. Overall, it's a little flat and dead, with the lambic notes only providing a reprovatory hint rather than the basis of the beer.

Taste is similar, in that it feels flatter than it would have had it gone all out. There's still a pronounced and rather crisp cherry tartness on the palate, but there's not a lot of genuine lambic acidity, or else an acquiescent sweetness. It's a shame, because as a result it feels sort of half way—it can't be bothered throwing its cap in with the true lambics, but it also can't accept its true calling as a pseudo alco-pop.

I'm disappointed in this brew overall. I feel as though it doesn't go the full distance either way. It genuinely has the fundamentals to be a good kriek, but it holds back on fully expressing itself, and ends up a middle-of-the-road curiosity.

3.53/5  rDev -13.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pour is a dark redish orange with a skummy bubbly white head. Very old dry musky funk strong up front, a bit dusty and some light cherry notes balancing in back. The taste is much sweeter than the nose. The funk is light and what is there is dusty. The cherries are much stronger, there is a light hop bittereness in the finish and fairly sour. Light body, a bit syrupy, lighter carb than I'd like.

A hazy ruby red brew, a pale pink head, very small and quickly disappearing.

The smell is interesting, stable, earth, cherries, yeast and wet wood.

Tasting fruity, bitter cherries and sour rhubarbs. Not sweet at all.

Medium carbonation, small bubbles, a coarse feeling, a small body but a sour freshness.

Not dull at all, a bit uneven, but feels authentic

Red blood. Pronounced nose of sweet cherries and juicy. On the palate, this key and vinous acid at a time - characteristic of good lambics - continues to be accompanied by many tannins.

Unfortunately, cherries seem a little too present and the acidity of lambic has a slightly too strong - too much to stomach - which prevents it from reaching the heights occupied by models more balanced and tasty.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - 3.5
Big pink head fizzled and left a thin layer over a dark red to purple body.

Smell - 4.0
Musty, funky lambic notes are there, though not as pronounced as in more traditional offerings. Sweet cherry fruitiness comes over the top of the wet horse blanket, almondy nuttiness too.

Taste - 3.5
Beautifully balanced, but somewhat thin and lacking punch. A good dose of sweet and tart cherry fruit is balanced by moderate sourness and an almondy note in the dry finish.

Mouthfeel - 4.0
Very acidic, lively, vigorous carbonation with small bead that feels a little coarse over the tongue.

Drinkability - 4.0
Generally not a strength of lambics, this beer is much more drinkable than most.

OVERALL - 3.7
A bit of an oude kriek-lite, but far better than the lolly-shop lambics.

750ml bottled June 2012. 6.5% ABV. Served in a wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark blood red color with 2+ fingers of a pink head. Body is nearly opaque with only a small amount of light getting through. Good head retention.

Smell: Sour cherry, barnyard, some light basement notes, and earth. Nice aroma, but perhaps a bit weak.

Taste: WOW. Huge mouth puckering sourness, caught me a bit off guard considering the fairly mild aroma. Big sour cherry flavor, funk and some oak.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Long lingering sour finish.

Overall: Really good kriek. Not the greatest I've ever had, leaps and bounds better than any other Lindemans fruit lambic. Definitely worth a try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

750ml bottle into a 25cl Duvel tulip. Big thanks to Knifestyles for sharing this Europe-only treat.

A: Pours a deep, deep crimson body with an inch of frothy pink head that disappears quickly and completely. Big points for the deep, rich color, but I wish the head weren't so transient.

S: Intensely deep black cherry - far more tannic and bittersweet than the cherry aroma seems in most Krieks. Juicy, yet not as sweet; more skin. There's a touch of grassy funk and straight acidity complimenting the fruity, but the juicy dark cherry is the star. Terrific.

T: Sour and bitter, with tannic cherry skin dominating everything else. Some tart grapefruity citrus toward the long, bitter finish. Ok, but disappointing compared to the aroma.

M: Prickly, lively, a little sticky. Ok.

O: I've been wanting to try this one for a long time, but somehow didn't get around to it on either of my trips to Belgium. It didn't disappoint, especially in the aroma department - I've never experienced a Kriek that displayed quite this depth of cherry essence. Many have been more intense, more juicy, more ripe - but never as deep and dark and mysterious. The flavor didn't quite measure up, but overall it was still an extremely enjoyable Lambic. I wish they exported it!

Cheers!

Pours a pink hued white head. Good head retention. Color is a maroon/ruby with a lot of haze.

Aroma: Medicinal notes with sour cherries and a lot of oak. It is sweet but tart. Has some funk as well.

Taste: Sour tart cherries. Very tart. Acidic with lemon citrus. Has some oak and funk. It is really mouth puckering.

Mouthfeel: Sour, tart, mouthpuckering. Lighter bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends fairly clean.

Overall, a really nice kriek that I was surprised by. Pretty drinkable with some great quality flavors. I am glad I got to try this one. Thanks Adam!

look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a beatiful deep dark red color with a nice pink foamy head. It's really nice to look at this beer actually.

Smell is a bit vinous. Notes of smoke, stable and other lambic like aromas is also found. I can't really find much cherries here though.

The taste is good; vinous, sour/acid with some slight sweetness and notes of sour cherries. Great! Maybe I would like to taste the cherries even more though, but I'm new into kriek and lambic beers, so I probably will be better to detect them while getting more experienced. There's also a nice note of (bitter) almonds.

The mouthfeel is overall good; I would describe as a bit "rough", but in a good way.

Overall a good and highly drinkable kriek.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Solid rouge, with a rosy pink but fleeting head. Citric and malic in the nose, with slight farmyard funk. Bready, lemony, and slightly plastic, with only a shadow of cherry and a bit of raspberry. Very tart on the palate, vinous like a sauvignon blanc, with a firm cherry tang but also enough wheaty heft to let you know that this is still a beer. Vaguely rhubarb-like with lemon and green banana notes and really nice carbonation - spritzy enough to match the flavor but not so carbonated that it makes the acidity too rough. Very balanced and flavorful; perhaps too subtle and not krieky enough, but still good - especially with some old Tomme de Chevre.

750ml bottle poured in a chalice.

Forget about Lindemans Kriek or the Pecheresse, Cuvée René is a real Lambic-Kriek. It's not sweet, first of all, actually, this is acid and dry. When poured, at first time, it has a medium rose head with small retention and no lacings. Subsequent doses have not much head anymore. The color is a dark red. Quite cloudy. Reminds wine. The smell is reeeeally Lambic. Fruity and acid as it should. Reminds grapes but it's probably only cherry. The taste is also acid close to vinegar. Again, very fruity with this metallic end left by Lambics. Again, this is dry. Body is light and drinkability too. Good stuff to people that like wild acid beers.

A - cherry red with a moderate good-looking head that fades quickly. Little lace.

S - barnyard, sour, vinegar, cherry menthol.

T - much more sour than nose suggests. Cherries, sour, vinegar all wrapped up in a zesty finish.

M - nice n lively but carbonation is quite soft in feel.

O - have had Lindemans Gueuze which is more entry level, this is a sourer and more traditional beer in many ways. Solid effort and I do not prefer Kriek as a style.

December 2006 Bottle Vintage, Sampled May 2008
Pours with a pink tinged, light tan colored, frothy, initially three-finger thick, fairly quickly disappearing head that shrinks to a persistent, 1-mm of crowning foam. The beer is a bright, red color that shows a stunningly, brilliantly clear, red hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells more of funk than it does of cherry, but it definitely smells of both. Light cherry syrup notes dance around underneath aromatic notes of musty, sweaty horse-blanket, woody mushroom notes, and an only light tartness. There are also notes of lightly toasted oak and toasted, breakfast-cereal like grain here towards the finish. Not the funkiest of Lambics, and the lack of tartness in the nose is a bit unusual; still this is funky enough to be interesting & I like that the cherry aromas play a supporting role. As the beer warms up the sourness becomes much more noticeable in the nose.

Much more sour than the aroma would have suggest; it is even a bit bracing in its acidity. The carbonation is quite pleasing in its frothy texture, though it is not overly carbonated (on the high side for a standard American Beer). This is almost bone dry, so much so that the cherry flavors are actually fairly muted. Lactic acid notes dominate, both there does seem to be just a touch of some sharper acids here. Sour cherry fruit notes, with some tannic cherry skin flavors and a hint of juicy cherry pulp join the more traditional Lambic sour-grapefruit-like fruit flavors. A touch of grassy, crushed-wheat like grain character just kisses the taste buds towards the finish. This predominantly leans towards sourness in its funkiness, but there are some musty, damp earth flavors, some light and some almost clean, barnyard notes. There is also a nice foundation of wood character here that contributes a tannic-influenced heft to the mouthfeel, some toasty, woody-oak flavors, with just a touch of spiciness in the finish.

A fresh pour from my 750ml bottle really accents an aromatic note of funky, woody, earthy mushroom note that even leans a bit towards toe-cheese (that wonderful, funky gunk found in between your toes after a long, hard working, sweaty day in shoes). This doesn't seem to manifest itself in the flavor though.

While the cherry character is fairly soft here, this is much more traditional tasting than I was expecting. I think it is even more traditional than recent examples of the Gueuze Cuvée René. Really, I think the fact that this is bone dry has really helped this along; it doesn't really have much of a funkiness to it, but the fact that it does not have any sweetness (sweet being the antitheses of a decent Lambic), makes this all the more palatable. Even the nose is not overly funky, it just was a bit more noticeable at first because of the slight cherry influence and minimal sourness at first. My biases are definitely showing, but this is definitely an enjoyable beer to be drinking right now.

Bottle opened and poured into two glasses in my hotel room in Brussels. Enjoyed as my wife and I walked around the Grand Place on a mild March evening.

A: Blood red body. Minimal fizzy pink head. Dissipates quickly.

S: Assertive tart cherries. A little oak. Nice but a bit simplistic.

T: Like the nose, there are a ton of tart cherries packed in here. Again some oak. Tasty, but lacking the complexity from the funk and must in the better krieks.

M: Lively carbonation. Perhaps a bit more than I’d like. Nice tart finish.

O: A nice offering. Similar to the Cuvee Rene Gueuze in that its probably a good intro beer to authentic kriek flavors but toned down from the complexity that the style can offer.

75 cl. bottle procured from Delhaize. Def. cheaper than other 75 cl. fruit lambic’s. 2012 Vintage. Bottle # 316. Even if they are numbered, I can always find these in the supermarket. Pours a dark kriek colour, instantly gone pink head. Nose is huge on kriek’s, very juicy, almost pure juice, slight sourness that is present in the actual fruit, some kriek pits, the fruit skins. Taste is metallic kriek juice, light Gluhwine spices, bit mouldy, touch bitter, strong kriek skins, bitter mouldy, slight hint of cork, slight bitter metal, very faint minerals. Really dries out the mouth, touch watery & high carb. Good on its own but feels like a poor substitute to Cantillon Kriek. I am willing to pay the 2.3 € in order to get the upgrade. If you cannot pick up De Cam, Cantilon, 3F or similar fare, this is not a bad alternative.

So I got this in a particularly generous box from Mr. Doopiedoopiedoo. Not a ton of carbonation here, but I'm okay with that. It looks like something I want to drink and smells like a sweaty ballsack. Now, to be perfectly fair, I think a lot of higher end lambics from the Belgium smell somewhere between sweaty ballsack and infected foot. I get past it pretty easily because this thing is tasty business. Nice and tickly on the tongue, this has a musty old cherry taste with a fair amount of sour. It really sounds like I hate this, but I really really enjoy it and I wouldn't say no to another bottle. Really. In fact, I may have to go searching for another one.

While I drink this I am watching House Hunters International and thinking, "yeah, I could probably find something to do in Belgium..."

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A very dark ruby/red, completely covering the glass over. Clear, but not see-through. The head is red-pink and poured out thick and bubbly, dissipitating into a nice clinging lace 2mm thick.

Big, big, big green apple skin aroma dominates, with tart apple and tart cherry. Funky.

Initial taste is very sour, with dry lemon, crisp green apple skin, and then gives way to a dry tarty cherry. Cherry is no way dominant here. Cherry gives way to a more sour style of cherry fruit. Very nice, very refreshing, very dry.

The sourness of the lambic really cuts through everything in your mouth, and gives way to dry, cidery like feeling. The body is actually very light, while overall, the brew is much more manageable then a straight geuze, but not as sweet as some might expect. A good balance, and enough in there for someone more familiar for lambics, and not someone who wants something so syrupy sweet.

Big thanks to Jerriko for trading me this, I've wanted this forever! Poured into two belgian tumblers this was bright reddish-pink with a good foamy head. Smell is cherries and a little old lambic, definitely not your average Lindeman's but you knew that didn't you? I was expecting the flavor to be Cuvee Rene Gueuze plus cherries but this is slightly different. The cherries were full and the beer was sour but very easy to drink. This was probably one of the better krieks I've had right behind Lou Pepe.

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt!

A: The beer appears a gorgeous ruby hue, with a pinkish / purple head an eighth inch in thickness. The head does recede rather hastily, leaving some nice lacing by which to remember it.

S: Slight funk and cherry aromas.

T: Nice flavor. This is without question the best offering I have yet had from Brouwerij Lindemans (I have yet to try the Gueuze Cuvée René). The flavor is certainly tart (in place of sweet, thankfully) but not incredibly so, or to the point of puckering. Cherry flavors are present throughout and I find them to be very enjoyable.

M: Tart and slightly acetic. Appropriate feel for a fruit lambic.

D: I would definitely drink this again. I will be seeking a couple of bottles for my cellar.

Big thanks to drabmuh for bringing out this bottle. Served in a snifter.

Pours a beautiful bright red color with a nice pink head and a bit of light lacing. Think pink collar sits atop the bright red liquid. The nose brings some nice cherry character with a bit of barnyard funk in the background. Not terribly complex, but nice.

The taste is quite a bit of cherry as well. There's a hint of tartness along with some very mild funk. Good body with nice carbonation and a good level of sweetness. Glad I got to try this and very good to know that Lindemans can certainly make a very high quality beer.

M: Light to medium bodied with high carbonation, bubbles tend to pop on the tongue.

O: The best beer I have had from Lindemans, a bit mustier than most Krieks I have had, but it is easy drinking with a good flavor profile.
