Bottle: Poured a clear deep red color lambic with a generous pink head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of tart cherries is quite intense with some sour notes and some light funky notes. Taste is also dominated by intense tart cherries notes with some light red vinegar notes and a sour finish with limited acidity. Body is quite full with great carbonation. I really enjoyed the amount of cherries in there with the balanced level of acidity and sourness but I would have enjoyed this even more of the funky barnyard notes of the lambic would have come forward a bit more.

2005 Bottle

An aggressive pour yields a minimal bubbly pink head that eventually disappears. Deep red with pink highlights.

Opens with big cherry and funk notes. You can anticipate the impending sourness from the aroma. More red fruit in the form of raspberry and strawberry. The nose on this is just phenomenal.

Soft tingly carbonation gives it a heavier feel. Smooth. Mouth puckering tartness that lingers. Cherry, musty funk, almond at the very end/aftertaste. There is some sweetness hanging in the background of the brew which helps so it is not overbearingly sour.

This was awesome. Must try for a sour fan.

I liked this one better than the other but still it was a little too syrupy in the end. I've had better krieks.

Beer is red with almost no head but a few pink bubbles, aggressive carbonation.

Aroma is cherries, Brett b, lactic, succinic, tartness.

Beer is light in body and dry on the finish with a lot of tartness at the back, the finish is nice for sure, strong cherry flavors up front, an interesting beer for sure. Again I'd probably rather have a kriek from Cantillon or Drie Fonteinen but whatever. This was fine as well.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled January 2009. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Pours with no head. Bright red. Not even pink. Red. A little lifeless.

Smell - Bright cherry. Loads of fruit. Really nice funk. Like cherry juice and manure. Not a lot of acidity in the nose, though.

Taste - Cherry flavor. Almost pure juice. Not sweet. Tart without really ever getting sour. Less funk, but a little bit in the finish. All about the cherry in this one.

Mouthfeel - Thick and juicy. Not much carbonation. Not very tart.

Overall - Not my favorite, because it doesn't have a lot of the great lambic aspects. It is definitely one of the best fruit flavors I've ever had in a beer. Ten times stronger than Wisconsin Belgian Red without ever tasting artificial. But, I want more beer than fruit.

750ml bottle shared by Jason. Thanks! 2005 vintage.

A: Deep red with a big white head.

S: Cherry pie - crust, pit, flesh, and skin. Awesome nose. Vanilla and oak. Big wet leather Brett character with earth.

T: Super citric, mouth mouthwateringly so. Intense cherry pie flavor with oak and a high level of tartness. Vanilla blends with leather and earth. Lots of Brett. Firm acetic acidity throughout with restrained vinegar flavor.

M: Medium body with matching carbonation. Sticky, dry, and lightly tannic mouthfeel.

Overall: Exceptional.
