Has a fizzy, small head, and a slightly hazy dark red color with ruby hints to it.

Funky barnyard aromas unfold along lots of leather, and hints of sour yoghurt, wrapped up by a gently cherry fruitiness. Wooden, bready malts with damp hops stand against a super-dry, acidic sourness.

Cherries blend well into the sour aspect of the beer, providing a mellow sweetness, while adding more depth to the wooden malts as well. At the same time, the cherries don’t seem to be too young and pungent fruity, but with a ripe fermented touch and lots of stone qualities to them. The uprising sourness during the middle part is defined by an immense dryness, illustrated by cherry fruitiness. This brew has a great balance, with a very well defined, intense sourness, accompanied by an earthy, complex cherry note.

750 ml bottle poured into a Cantillon balloon glass. Label reads bottled January 2009, but I'd take that with a huge grain of salt since this is De Cam we're talking about (label also read 37.5 cl, which obviously was incorrect).

Appearance: Pours a deep ruby red color with less than a finger of a pink head that dissipates quickly to a thin collar. Body is hazy but still translucent.

Smell: Cherries, barnyard funk, hay, damp oak, and a hint of vanilla.

Taste: Medium lemon like sourness followed by lots of cherry. After that are notes of hay, funk, oak, hint of cranberry and vanilla. Really intense juicy cherries are what stand out most.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a soft almost creamy mouthfeel and medium, fine carbonation. Finishes tart and mostly dry.

Overall: Really excellent kriek. Tons of sour cherry character with just enough funk to keep it balanced. Drinks great as a cherry bomb now, but I'll be interested to see how it progresses with further aging. Seek this one out.

Bottled in January 2009.

A: Nice pop when opened. Pours a beautiful reddish cloudy colour forming a small pinkish creamy and bit molasses head. Medium retention and many lingering glasses formed and left in the glass

S: Classic fruity Lambic. Great perfume of cherries. A delicious juice of cherries with also delicious notes of oak. A bit metallic. Belgian Lambic yeasts

T: Perfect taste. Slightly sweet upfront. Cherry bomb. Excellent notes of cherries. Absolutely delicate taste. Not too sour and not too sweet as well. Cherry vinegar. Very balanced. Oak. Earthy Belgian Lambic yeasts

M: Medium body and carbonation. Cherry juice aftertaste

O: Excellent drinkability. If you are looking for a perfect Kriek, you've just found one...

Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Bottled 1/2009.

Pours a hazy dark red with a foamy reddish-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Small chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is sour with malt, cherry, earth, and funk aromas. Taste is much the same with sour cherry and funk flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a fantastic sour and funky cherry flavor that makes this one very easy to drink.
