750ml caged and corked bottle, Jan 2009, 6.5% abv, says Exclusief Kriek-Lambiek on the label...also says, on the back 37.5cl. Wrong! ;^)

A- Pours a cloudy black cherry colour, no head of foam, really, and no lacing. There was barely a hiss when I removed the cork.

S- Big sour cherry aromas with lots of funk...horse blanket...sourness has some notes of vinegar.

T- Again, sour cherries and funk, some light vinegar, not overly sour and frankly, not that pleasing to my palate. Maybe it's the lack of any carbonation?

M- Flat and think bodied.

O- Drinks more like a red wine, what with no carbo. The first De Cam brew that did not having me smiling big time.

Bottle from Etre Gourmet, 750ml into a tulip. 2009 vintage.

Deep purple body, with a pinkish-purple head. Ring of retention. Nose has some insane barnyard character, horse shit/manure, herbs, flatulence and not too much fruit. What in the fuck am I smelling? Palate has crazy funk character, apple, horse stable/horse shit, plastic and distant but detectable cherry notes. Light medium body, medium low carbonation. Unlike anything I've ever consumed before.

Aroma is funky, berry, plastic, horse blanket. A good looking reddish purple, with a small retained head and lace. Sour yet cushioned finish. A bit palate erasing. Very drinkable. Fruity sour in the sediment. Masterful combination.A unique beer, thanks Liam.

Bottle ordered from overseas. Served in a De Cam tumbler. Heavy cherry with skin and a bit of pit. Moderate to heavy acidity. Very fruit forward. Low carbonation.

Big thanks to belgbeergeek for bringing this over and making it part of the De Cam tasting at our party. Cheers man! We drunk this one right after the regular lambic.

From a 750ml corked and caged bottle into a tasting glass.
Vintage: 2009
Note: Label says Kriek-Lambiek and is noted at 6.5%

APPEARANCE: Pours out relatively flat, yielding a slight wisp and ring only. A hazy poppy red in color with no carbonation evident. Only a ring remains until the end leaving no lacing down the glass. A little lack-luster, but nothing wrong per se.

SMELL: Musty and funky notes, with some cherry definitely there. Not quite as bold as hoped, but a decent balance between musty lambic, tart cherries and floral aromas. A touch of white wine competes with the tart cherries as well.

TASTE: Some sour lemon, tart cherries and wine flavors, as well as some musty and funky flavors in the mix. Touches of floral hops at the swallow as well. Mild finish of musty funk, tart lemon and cherry flavors and some light sourness. Mild in flavor all around, and definitely not as impressive as hoped. A little weak.

PALATE: Medium body and lower levels of carbonation. Slightly watery on the palate, smooth going down, however, and finishes slightly dry. Not overly puckering.

OVERALL: This one just missed the mark for me. The lambic is fine, as we had just seen, but the cherries didn't quite lend the flavor that we'd all hoped for. Mild all around and slightly watery, unfortunately. Not quite there for me.

The beer is a deep, dark, ruby red with a soft pinkish purple head. The aroma and flavor both showcase the cherry. Mildly acetic and highly drinkable. This beer is quite noticeably different in both aroma and flavor from the 3 Fonteinen and Cantillon krieks I was enjoying earlier in my trip. The body is medium to thick and coats the palate more so than is customary for the style. A blend of sweet and tart cherries, with a bit of a syrupy character. Overall, this is solid. I would definitely have this again.

I've had better Krieks, these krieks from De Cam are good but they sort of border that cough syrup flavor at times, maybe if they were either sweeter or more sour it would work out better. I doubt I'll go out of my way to have it again.

Beer is ruby red, dark, with a pink head, lazy head breaks quickly, moderate carbonation, some lacing, low retention.

Aroma is funky, tart, sour, lactic, cherries, sweet.

Beer is medium to light in body, tart on the finish but syrupy and sweet with lots of cherries up front, nice Brett character and lactic breaking through in themidaplate. Like I said though, Probably not a repeat for me.
