Has no head at all, cloudy, with a very saturated burgundy color.

Nose is full of sunbathed, joung cherries, just before they turn ripe, with only hints of acidity.

Lower carbonation brings out the fruit very well, without adding distracting metallic hints. Begins with sour, unripe cherries, tickeling the tip of the tongue, supported by a leathery tartness, helping to put the fruits even more into the spotlight. The sourness enhances while the beer warms up, resulting in an uncomprimising tartness, in which cherry notes shine through at a later stage, after the palate has been adjusted to the acidity. Gets a little sweeter in the end, adding a lovely complexity to the fruit, the cherries seem to mature during the drinking process.

2009 vintage 750ml poured into some snifters. The brew appears a hazy maroon red color with a white head. The smell is cherry pits, earth and barrel notes slightly neutral and dusty with a lactic lemony sour note appearing before the first sip is even taken. The flavor includes cherry like a very natural pitted character with oak providing traces of vanilla and caramel before giving way to earth and funk. Its very sour but not acedic, medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Ive gone through several bottles of this and there seems to be quite a bit of variation. This bottle was exceptional with a beautiful contrast of sour, funk, barrel and fruit all intermingled perfectly. If I had some kind of reassurance that all bottles would be as good as this, id buy cases.

At Ebenezer's during the Night of the Great Thirst; reviewed from notes.

A: Clear magenta body with a thin, fleeting, pink cap. Nice color, but a a little watery looking.

S: Fresh, tart cherry juice and a bit of grassiness. Simple and enjoyable, if not particularly memorable.

T: Follows the nose: clean, tart, juicy cherry, and a hint of grassy, mineral-heavy funk on the finish. Very tasty, but a little one-dimensional.

M: Light-bodied and nicely carbonated. Great.

O: De Cam Oude Kriek is one of my favorite Lambics of all time, so I was extremely excited to try this one. Sadly the Kriek Lambiek lacked the depth and complexity of its cousin. Still a tasty Kriek, but nowhere near world class.

Cheers!
