look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Beautiful opaque light burgandy color with a very small head. Still not as stunning as some of the bright red cantillon's I have had, but really nice none the less.

S: This is the quality of the beer that really shines through. Fresh baked bread, pie cherries, candy sugar, light vinegar, and a bit of funk and oak in the finish. Perfect.

T: The taste starts out blindingly tart with some astringency in the finish. Given the cherry flavors are still phenominal, they are just dominated by the tartness. No funk or oak flavors are noticable at all. I wonder if I had an off bottle because normally Drie Fonteinen is known for their amazing blance in flavors (a la Drie Fonteinen Gueuze). A bit of a disappointment.

M: Great body and carbonation levels. No complaints here.

O: With a bit less tartness this would hold up the the Lou Peppe Kriek. However, for the time being Cantillon takes the crown in my opinion.

A generous pour from a 750 ml bottle thanks to FooFa

A-Hazy, bright cherry red with a small off-white head that reduced to a thin ring and left spotty lacing.

S-Bold and bright sour cherries with that background magic marker scent.

T-Sour cherry tartness initially with a bit of sweetness coming in backside. A touch of dry oakiness in the finsih.

M-Medium-light body with a nice drying finish and a bit of biting tartness.

D-Nice,bold sour cherry tartness but not out of control...like Cantillon Kriek. This is a bit less extreme but no less drinkable. A lambic you can have a glassful and sit and enjoy.

I'm pretty glad I've long avoided the temptation to drop the $$ that it takes for this bottle. Jeff found a small stock of 2005's and decided to bring one over, and I am very much obliged. 5-6 oz. poured into a FFF Teku on June 9th, 2012.

A Sort of a cross between Raspberry Tart and Lou Pepe Kriek. Similar brown and reddish coloring but with a more pinkish head. One finger reduced down very quickly. Okay lacing, very little legs.

S - Rounded Brett funk of grass, hay, and some barnyard. You can tell that the cherries have mellowed a bit over time and now have a relaxed interplay. That being said, the fruit can be pulled out pretty easily with some room to breathe.

T - Very tart, acedic cherries and pits. Somewhat vinegary, lemon peel bite. Really no sweetness or added spice complexity to back this one. It seems to have fully melded into a sour bomb and is nearly beyond Fou Foune at this point.

M - Light body, great carbonation for the seven years it's spent in the bottle. Infinitely dry, effervescent finish. Fairly perfect.

D - I do enjoy this, but I think less age may be the way to go based on my best guess. With the cherries really being the emphasis, you need to allow that fruit to exhibit its full potential. Alas, it's definitely a treat of a lambic and a cool step back in time.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pour is brown-ruby-cherry-mahogany-purple (the color is hard to pin down) with a small pink/red head. Looks a lot more intense than it tastes.

Smell: Tart cherries, oak, vinegar,and earth

Taste: Sour, dark cherries, raspberries, rhubarb and blackberries, vinegar, and earthy must. Neither incredibly sour or funky. Cherries come in a bit light for me, could have used many more

Mouthfeel: A bit watery, not smooth or full. Feels earthy.

Drinkability: High - but due to the less than intense sour/tart flavors and light carbonation

Notch below most 3F offerings, and one of the most expensive here in the states at that ($40).

I pulled the trigger on the big bottle. 750ml poured into a Russian River Belgian Stemmed glass.

Bottled 28 April, 2010.

A - Pours a clear, Koolaid red with only a few white bubbles then they are gone.

S - Super tart and funky smelling. Sour with some slight cherry tones.

T - Tart and funky fruit, very slight cherry finish.

D - Lower carbonation, light body. Sour and tart throughout.

O - Soft and light, but super tart.

Many, many thanks to ThoreauLikeaGirl and her friend for bringing this beer along tonight to drink during the premiere of Season 4 of "Breaking Bad".

From the bottle: "Made only with malt, wheat, hops, water, and whole ripe cherries, entirely spontaneously fermented with wild yeasts. A rare, completely natural, traditional lambic beer, with no added sugars, syrups, artificial colors or flavors. For ages, very rare Schaerbeek cherries have been prized by brewers for the deep rich color and flavor they give to Kriek beer."; "For decades, Armand Debelder has worked as a Gueuze blender - just as his father did - mixing young and old lambics from other lambic brewers to create the classic beer of Belgium. Armand has recently begun brewing his own lambics. The Drie Fonteinen beers are among the very few traditional and authentic Gueuzes and Lambics being made in Belgium today."

No head to speak of. Color was a cloudy raspberry red. Nose smelled of oak and cherries. I was reminded of some of the better homemade wines my uncle made while we were out in the Bay Area. Mouthfeel was medium with an initial cherry tartness on the tongue, followed by a pleasant oakiness. Finish was tart, but not puckeringly so, very cherry, underlain by oak. l like Drie Fonteinen and this was another shining example of their beers.

Thanks to the mothman for busting this out.

Pours a deep pink color with a one finger head that dissipates very quickly.

Smell is very funky, horseblanket and brett with a large berry aroma as well.

Taste is very funky, dry, and puckering. Lots of barnyard characteristics, some horse blanket, leather, and earthy straw notes. Good, but not great.

Mouthfeel is dry and carbonated.

Sour, dry and drinkable describe this beer. Very glad I got to try it, as lambics are always interesting beers to drink.

750mL corked and caged bottle poured into a stemmed glass. Oct. 17, 2008 bottled date.

(A)- Pours one of the darkest colored reds I have ever seen in a Kriek before. Produced a nice cap of pink froth that stuck around for awhile. Plenty of lace left behind.

(S)- A richer aroma. Very funky with tons of tart cherries. Dry and oaky too.

(T)- A nice cherry tartness and oak. Not overly funky or sour, but a solid straightforward tart and cherry oak tartness.

(M)- A smooth and mellow carbonation level. I like the profile of tart cherry and oak, but sadly this is fairly straightforward and basic; a solid feel, but nothing fancy.

(D)- Overall, it is a solid fruit lambic. There are better ones out there especially considering the $$ it costs for one of these. Nonetheless, this is very easy drinking and enjoyable; just wish it had something more to offer considering the higher price tag this demands on the shelves.

2008 Vintage. Poured from a foiled, corked and caged 750ml bottle into a Cantillon tulip. Like wearing Addidas pants with Nike sneakers... Shared with schen9303.

Pours a 1 finger frothy pink head with low retention. Beer is a dark, semi-clear ruby. Lacing is non-existant but with decent legs. Slightly above average due to the color.

Nose is tart cherry, some cobweb and hay funk. Some yeasty sharpness. Not overly funky or cheesy but with a robust fruit aroma. Nice.

Opens tart cherry, some yeasty spiciness. More big semi-sweet cherry notes towards the middle. Cobweb, wet hay, and barnyard funk. Yeasty fruit throughout. Some light bitterness. Cinnamon and oak notes towards the end. Finish is tart cherry puree with some band-aid taste. Really fruit forward, funky, and tart. Exceptional.

Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Light but lively in the mouth and some bubbles going down. Dry finish with a puckering and dry, lingering aftertaste. Really accents the flavor well.

While its not the most impressive looking or smelling fruit lambic, Schaerbeekse Kriek is definitely among the most fruit forward and tastiest. Probably one of, if not the most impressive widely available lambic out there now. Fresh vintages take almost completely blow away the competition in my opinion. Worth the hefty price tag.

Drank from a 1 pt 9.4 fl oz corked and caged bottle purchased at Julio's Liquors, Westboro, MA
Bottling date 2010, April 28
Served in a wine glass

The beer poured a gorgeous, crystal clear raspberry color. A small, short-lived cap of light pink bubbles topped the liquid. The body bore a striking resemblance to a rose wine.

The nose was equal parts funk/must and sour cherry notes. Lots of barnyard character. Wet hay and damp earth were both apparent. Musty with a strong cellar-like quality. Quite complex and intense.

The taste was a bit more sharp and straightforward than the nose. Tart lemon notes were most noticeable. Quite citric and acidic. Musty, damp and funky. Some vinegar came through on the back end. The bone-dry, oaky finish was super crisp and tart. Slightly tannic. The big letdown however was that there was no discernible cherry flavor.

The beer was medium bodied for the style with a fine yet spritzy effervescence. Snappy and crisp. The liquid turned smooth and creamy once it settled on my palate.

Drie Fonteinen Schaerbeekse Kriek was far more tart and funky than I was anticipating it to be. I really wish my bottle was a bit fresher so that I could have perhaps tasted some of those iconic Schaerbeekse cherries. This was enjoyable but definitely not worth the steep ($38) price tag.

$21 USD at Premiere Gourmet. Pinkish like a rose wine, with a small crown. Cherry aroma. Dry taste, fairly medium mouthfeel. Only the real thing, with a bit of wild yeast in there. Very good example of style, drying mouthfeel. Definately replaces wine at the meal.
Had a year and a half later and the ageing and being a very fortunate bottle made it exceptionally smooth, good oaking.

Appearance: A totally deep shade of raspberry red, with a pink head that my girfriend adored, but that was about it, she being of the Lindemans sweet lambic type...

Smell: Aromas are both funky and sweet, plenty of yeasty spices and tobacco/leather.

Taste: The cherries came out as real and as potent as I've ever tasted in a lambic, it was like eating fresh ripe cherries. It was relatively sweet, so the acidity seemed a bit more shadowed but still plenty puckering. The funk factor was also a bit toned down in the taste, in fact I'm really surprised that Mélanie didn't like this more than her usual half-sip and puckered face. The drinkability for me was through the roof.

Drie Fonteinen Schaerbeekse Kriek. Bottled April 28, 2010.

Almost perfectly clear. A beautiful raspberry red-pink with a surprisingly soaring off-white head of almost an inch. Left a thick ring and surface foam. Looks marvelous.

Rather tart cherry, light acetic acid, sour peach, oak, red currant, and some light funk. Pretty bright, in a refreshing way, but not as bright as Cantillon Kriek.

Zapping sour cherry and underripe berry tartness with high citric acidity. Musty funk notes are somewhat savory and mushroom-y. Representation of old lemon juice through the style of sourness exemplified. Very oaky, as well, which marries beautifully with the berry and lemon notes.

Excellent tartness on the palate makes a thinner-than-medium body of brew almost slippery. Slippery? Yeah, it slips right down the ol' gullet. Smooth, after all. Carbonation is spot-on; lively and jumpy.

Tasted alonside '10 Cantillon Kriek, '08 Boon Kriek Mariage Parfait, and '07 Drie Fonteinen Oude Kriek. Ranked among the bottom two.

Bottled 4/28/10 so a little over a year old. One of the first of many beers at an awesome tasting last weekend. Thanks to cbutova for sharing this pricey treat!

Pours murky magenta, pink head barely forms before fizzing away. Flecks left behind instead of lace.

Big lemon juice funkiness and sour cherry in the nose, great scent.

Sour, sweaty lemon funk, cherries and maybe raspberries, vinegar notes. Fruit is a bit more subtle in the taste than in the smell.

Nice, puckering, well-carbonated mouthfeel. Good.

A great sour, though as usual I wish the cherries were a bit stronger. Really nice funk though and very drinkable considering the style.

28-04-2010 stamped on the label. "Good for at least ten years after the bottling date." Well, I can't drop this much money on a beer to not drink it for 10 years.

Poured into a Mikkeller oversized wine glass.

Appearance
This kriek has such a deep color. Its beet red with no clarity. The pink head fades quickly. No lacing, and really not even a collar.

Aroma
WOW, there's that amazing Fonteinen funk! Such a stinky awesome aroma. A LOT of horseblanket and goat cheese. Some cat piss and cow manure is mixed in there. It pretty much smells exactly like a stable. If you wanted to know what reviewers mean by horseblanket, look no further than this beer. Cherries come out with gentle swirling. It smells like sour cherry pits, stems and skins.

Taste
Sourness is not big by any means, in fact, this is basically just as tart as a sour cherry. Lots of old cellar, damp oak, funky yeast sour cherry skins and pits comprise this complex flavor profile. The cherries are merely an accent, not the main attraction. But they really come alive on the finish and lingering aftertaste. They allow the lambic to remain raw, funky and unsweetened.

Mouthfeel
Very low carbonation, but what's there teams up with the gentle pucker and high acidity to create a lively beer. The body is surprisingly thick and a little slick.

Overall
This is darn good. I love the funky aroma most of all. This beer's acidity is high, thus making it one to take slowly.

Corked and caged 750. Pours a brilliant, deep, ruby red color with a small pink head that was gone quickly, and no lacing. Wow, great color on this beer, and leaves me with high hopes for the amount of cherry that must be in play here. Nice funky brett notes come out at first, notes of wood, leather, and mustiness. Only a small amount of cherry comes out in the nose, but it starts to show more as it warms. Flavor is bracingly tart and acidic. Nice mixture of acidity, oak and tartness, with hints of lemon in the front, followed by an earthy, herbal, almost cheesy like flavor, and just a touch of cherry on the back end that almost turns medicinal as it warms and gets to the bottom of the bottle. Musty, funky, and sour are the best words to describe this. Perfect, medium body on this with some abrasive carbonation at first, but turns light and delicate near the end. Wow, what can I say? I wish this one came in a 33cl bottle, because the 750ml is getting to be tough to put away by myself. Should have shared this with others, but I be a glutton for the evening. This is one of the best Belgian fruit lambics I've ever had and certainly blows away Lindeman's kriek in not only flavor, but also complexity. Great brew and glad I had the chancce to try it before Drie Fonteinen moves away from producing lambics and looks more towards distilling and blending.

Vintage 2008, poured from a corked and caged 750 into a tulip.

Pours a dark maroon color, almost brown when not in the light. Extreme soda like carbonation right after I opened it, but after about 5 minutes of drinking it seems almost flat. Very low levels of carbonation.

Aroma- Cherries, dark sweet fruit, must, vinegar, lemon peel, and tannins.

Taste- Starts with sweet cherries and must, and become sour and vinegary in the middle of the taste, and end very tannic and oaky, almost red wine like.

Nice mouthfeel with little carbonation and actually a little less crisp and dry than I expected.

Overall a great kriek, but at the $40 price point I may not buy it again.

750ml bottled in October of 2008 continously poured into two tulips, dregs dumped into a taster.

Ruby red, upon pouring some head is stirred up but it quickly dissipates into a ring of foam around the edges of the glass. Clear body with some bubbles dancing to the top. Nothing out of the ordinary here.

Funk and tart cherries upon your first whiff of the beer. Funk with all that barnyardy goodness and a little bit of a medicinal quality to it. Some gym sock and a faint bit of lactic funk in there too as it begins to warm. Agitation brings out more tart cherries with a subdued funk and more medicinal scents.

Pleasantly tart cherries greet your palate with a much softer funk than the nose. Actually, the taste here is much more abrasively sour and fruity than the smell. Hints of the funk upon swallow and some what muddled throughout but the taste here is all about the cherries.

Sticky sweet on the palate with low carbonation. More sticky than most other krieks.

Sharp tart cherries with a good funk. A pretty solid example of the style, and to be honest I am surprised how well the fruit has held up in this one. This was the last bottle on the shelf at one of my favorite shops in town so I had to grab it seeing as proper lambic is becoming a scarce commodity in this country.

Reviewed 4/7/08. Bottle (label said March 22, 2006). Pours a deep ruby red with a quickly dissipating pink head. Aroma of tart fruit and sourness. Taste of tart cherries, cherry pie, pie crust, and a little touch of cinnamon. Delicious! Not too sour (which is a plus for me). My favorite lambic to date! 8/4/9/4/17 (4.2/5)

$17 at spirit haus, my thanksgiving treat to myself. 750.

bottled march 2005. fresh and the cork exits the bottle with the faintest, weak pop and some smoky haze slowly crawls out like a horror film fog. pours deep, deep red with schools of tiny bubbles moseying up to the surface. cotton candy pink head is tight and thick, settles to an even coating. looks great. good pour, if i do say so myself.

smells grassy.. next comes a woody smell that i associate with an old leather flask with some leftover bourbon in it... this smell is light and is quickly lost to the hoppy farmhouse funk. cherries mix with the bacteria and create a sweet urine odor.. as usual, in a good way.

mouthfeel and body are perfect.. lambic-y without being TOO carbonated (that's usually my only complaint in payottenland). tastes mild overall.. sourness created by the natural reactions in the beer are, of course, in the forefront and complimented nicely by an untainted fruit flavor. these cherries don't impart any unripe sourness.. more of a fresh, acidic jolt to compliment the smoky, barrel-imparted character. finishes with that trademark indigestion burn but subtle flavors and crisp body beg for another sip.

holds up well to its blended brothers- takes top prize in the drinkability category and despite its medium harshness still caters mostly to friends of cantillon. a brewing achievement and worth a try.. although i'm not sure i would drop another $17. one time treat.

750 bottle into teku. Bottled 4/28/2010.

A: Pours a deep cranberry juice red with a minimal soft white head that faded into a lasting collar.
S: Musty attic, damp basement, and old oak barrel are prominent. The cherry adds a mellow sugary sweetness with tannic notes of cherry pits and skins. Mild cheesiness, faint tartness.
T: Sweeter, juicier, and fruitier than I expected from the nose. Cherries are fruit juice-like, but not cloying. The musty wood and light wheat base follow, with flavors of honey and earth in the finish. The tartness is very mild with just a kiss of bright acid. Flavors remind me of wildflower honey. Slight grape. Wheat and interesting yeast profile come through more as the beer reaches room temp.
M: Medium-light body, smooth and slick mouthfeel with a slight amount of gritty tannins. Drying finish, low acidity, low carbonation.
O: Four and a half years old has done this well. Not as tart or funky as I expected, but very woody with an interesting floral honey sweetness. Very delicious.

Thanks to a friend for bringing this back from the Cracked Kettle in Amsterdam. Oude kriek? How about old funky kriek. The cherries are just barely in here. Sure, the appearance is a hazy red with a short pink head (that quickly disappears). The aroma is big on horseblanket, leather, fresh garden, herbal tea. The flavor has more lemon peel and lime with a drop of cherry sugar candy. The finish is tart farmhouse funk.

Vintage 2010. The beer is clouded bright red, a small pink head, no lacing but curtains.

The smell is very intriguing, or really pungent, old stable and manure. Very bretty!

The taste is much fresher than the smell, apple vinegar, some cherry and red ripe berries.

Medium high carbonation, a fresh feeling, a complex body, and a dry finish.

So far the most complex kriek I've tried, very demanding.

Bottle date of 4/25/11 poured into a Drie Fonteinen tumbler. This brew pours a hazed color of deep beet red. About a finger of bright pink head forms across the top and slowly fades leaving some spots of lace clinging to the glass. The bubbles pop and fizz across the top and collect around the edge of the glass. A light swirl revives some bubble formation back to the surface.

The aroma of this brew has that classic Drie Fonteinen funk with lots of earthy tones and a bit of herbal aspect mixed with stinky cheese and diaper. Some pitted to rotten/over-ripen cherry character mixes with light notes of plastic and vinegar. Wet leather runs rapid throughout this brew with a little bit of mildew and old cork character.

The taste mirrors the aroma pretty much flawlessly but with more intense cherry character. The funky flavors of earth and wet leather are the first things noted with a slightly acidic note. Cherry flavoring runs throughout with a taste of pits and very mild oak to vanilla flavoring with a very light spiced touch of something almost like cinnamon. The cherries provide an added depth to the sour character of this brew and a pleasantly mild contrasting sweetness that is very natural tasting. Throughout the entire experience this brew never once came across being medicinal like some kriek's do.

This is a medium to light bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. I wanted to tackle this offering with as fresh a bottle as possible to see how much fruited flavor was in one of these before it fades and the funk overtakes it. I was not disappointed in the least. I really enjoyed the natural flavoring of this brew and it was very easy drinking. At no point did I pick up on the 5% alcohol that was listed on the bottle.

Bottled March 22 2006

A - Bright ruby with thin white/pinkish head that settles to a ring of foam.

S - Sour and tart with fresh cherry and spices. Earthy and musty. The fruit/spice combo reminds me a lot of the 2002 version of Unibroue's Quelque Chose.

T - Tart and spicy with fresh tart cherries, spices and earthy oak tannins. Some vinous wine like flavors are also present. Complex yet seems subtle for a fruit lambic.

M - Light to medium mouthfeel with a slight tingle from the tartness and a dry lingering finish.

D - This reminds me of blending a lambic and quelque chose. Not as tart/sour as other lambics but extremely drinkable.
