Thanks to oglmcdgl for sharing the bottle. I believe this is a 2005 bottle. Poured in some wine glasses.

A- Schaerbeekse Kriek is a slight cherry color with pink spots depending on light. Not much in terms of head or even a small cap, but some faint off white with red bubbles pop off at the top. A nice looking kriek all and all.

S- Beekse smells like cherries that spent some time in a special oak barrel. This gives off a tart and pleasant nose depending if you like the style. Some funk, some barnyard, yet nothing too extreme. Almost winelike in nature. A great smelling kriek all in all.

T- Great stuff. Sour cherry juice with some yeast in the distance plus some barnyard tart and somewhat sour taste. Getting some sour grapes giving off a vinious edge with just a hint of vinegar again very faint. Oak from the barrel and just a boatload of sour cherry. Am I in heaven?

M- Not overly carbonated but you can tell it's there. Some acidity from lambic style plus some tartness. This one is a pucker for sure but nothing I cant handle. A sharp crispness on the tounge but a bunch of flavor. A nice dry finish, this is a kriek to remember.

D- One to share with friends, no way I could polish off a bottle of this. Low in abv and high in flavor but not too harsh on the palete, im quite liking this offering from Fonteinen. Would drink again, im just not sure if i will be able to find it again.
