Jan. 2009 bottle, though the label says it is 37.5 cl bottle, and it is a 75 cl bottle.

A - Pours completely still. Pour is a murky reddish brown.

S - Aroma is surprisingly muted, but consists of mostly cherry with some very light funk.

T - Very tart taste. Takes awhile for specific flavors to become apparent. When they do, there is a strong cherry presence. Mostly tart, but a slight sweet fruitiness does come through. Also lemon. As with the aroma, only very mild funk is apparent. The sour just dominates, but in a surprisingly nice way.

M - Medium mouthfeel, a bit heavier than most lambics, with a lingering tart finish.

O - Not the most complex kriek, but I really enjoyed it.

Pours pink ruby red with a very short/small "bubble" head. Nose is just rich and pure cherry and mild tartness. Flavour is very dry and fruity, with extremely assertive rich red cherries; not sweet; just huge fruit. Very well balanced with a light (but present) tart character and a medium acidity. Light carbonation. Light sour/acidic fruit tart cherry finish.

This is just a wonderful bottle of lambiek. Perfect balance and while this would be fun to age and see the changes, the incredible assertive bright fruit character is likely exactly what the brewer wants you to experience now! Fresh this is simply amazing!

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to Chris F. for sharing this one.

2009 vintage.

Pours a murky dark red with a foamy reddish-white head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with malt, cherry, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour, tart, and funky cherry flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

January 2009 bottle; Sampled August 2013
A steady pour into my large Tripel Karmeliet tulip produces a one finger thick, pale red tinged, full tan colored head. The beer is a dark, concentrated, deep red, plum color. The nose smells fruity, with a note that reminds me of cherry flavored, children aspirin, lots of cherry skin character, sweet concord grape candy, as well as floral sour cherry notes (carnations and a bit of rose), as well as a bit of fruity cherry pulp. The cherry character really dominates the nose, even after the beer warms up.<p>

The beer has a light prickly carbonation, a tannic, astringent texture, to go along with a light body that has enough texture to it that it isn’t anywhere near watery. This has a really floral cherry character (it makes me wonder if these use Polish Sour cherries), lots of carnation notes, some light perfume-like rose notes, a tart cherry character that lingers on the palate; in the long finish the beer is has an astringent cherry skin character, but up front there is a really juicy, ripe cherry character that can be a bit confusing as the beer is quite dry and tart up front. There is a medicinal note to the finish, a definite phenolic note, a lingering mustiness and a light funkiness to this beer.<p>

I like that this has a persistent carbonation to it, it definitely helps to make this beer quite a bit more expressive. I really like the floral edge that the cherries bring to this beer. While the cherry character is dominant, the floral edge sort of accentuates the funkiness of the base beer, and the balance between cherries and Lambic really strikes a good balance.
