750ml from 2010 at Ebenezer's during the Night of the Great Thirst; reviewed from notes.

A: Cloudy vermillion body with almost no head - just a few pink bubbles. Meh.

S: Rich, intense, sour cherry, accompanied by equally rich herbal, earthy, cheesy funk. Perfect.

T: Follows the nose - impeccable balance of juicy, zesty, sour cherry richness and deep, rocky, herbal, musty funkiness. Straightforward Kriek perfection.

M: Smooth, slick, and moderately carbonated medium body. Good.

O: While I'm a huge 3 Fonteinen fan, I've never been that impressed by their regular Oude Kriek. I was absolutely blown away by this, my first taste of the Schaerbeekse; I will from now on buy every bottle I see, the cost be damned. Incredibly delicious.

2011 vintage, C&C 750ml. Teku glass.

A: Pours crimson with a half finger of attractive, pink-tinted foam, receding moderately soon to a thick ring. Minimal lacing but very good retention.

S: Gorgeous aroma of cherry, red wine, light funk, a bit of grassiness, and dry cinnamon toast.

T: Cherry and funk meld well, with a light tartness building to more of a moderate sourness. A nice red wine character, with light oak in the background. Fairly dry.

M: Medium body and medium light carbonation.

O: Phenomenal flavors and highly drinkable. The cherry is light but still noticeable, and the light to moderate tartness makes this highly drinkable and a good pairing with food. If only this were widely available, I could see drinking this all summer long.

Poured into a tasting glass. Nice dark red color that is slightly see through. The light pink head disappears almost completely after pouring.

The aroma is full of sweet cherry; only a hint of sourness is evident.

The taste starts out with just the slightest hint of sweet cherry. This is quickly turned into a sour cherry lemonade flavor, finishing dry and tart. This is one of the cleanest sour flavors I've enjoyed.

The body is light and the mouthfeel is smooth; most of the carbonation was lost in the pour it appears.

This is one of the best balanced fruit lambics I've had, revealing a nice sweet flavor while maintaining the wonderful yeast tartness.
