Thanks to ms11781 for this bottle of the 2008 vintage. Split four ways. Reviewed on 9/9/2011 and posted here from notes taken that night.
The color is a beautiful deep ruby red that almost glows when held up to the light. As is the case with many of Armand's lambics, there is no head, but there is plenty of lively carbonation to make up for it.
The aroma is light and bright, full of fresh cherries, a very clean lemony lactin sourness, and some mineraly goodness that I really enjoy from 3F offerings. On the palate, there are lots of sweet cherries, and they take center stage. The lactic lemony notes blend with a gnarly sweaty gym sock, wet hay, and dank funkiness.
Lively and bright, this is an awesome kriek, though I find that the other notes that I am enjoying are prying my focus from the delicious cherries. That, combined with the price tag, makes this not quite equal to Cantillon's Kriek lambic in my book.
