750ml, bottled 12/21/2011, poured into a Surly goblet today, 1/20/2014- a bit more than 2 years of age.

App- dark ruby body, thick in appearance, effervescent pink head that sticks for a while. Some lacing. Looks a bit thick and custardy, as if it is cherry jam.

Nose- lot of barnyard funk, vinegar, lactate. Fruitiness is faint cherry, quite tart. Some oak.

Flavour- even more funk, vinegar. 6/10 sourness. Complex cherry tartness comes forth, some oak. Cherry tartness is different from regular krieks in that it is not juicy nor sweet, as even in beers like Cherry Rye, but it is clearly a very tart cherry flavour with fairly minimal sweetness. Very interesting cherry pie-like flavour.

Mouthfeel- medium bodied, well carbonated. Finish is dry with lots of cherry tartness on the backend. Very easy to drink.

Overall- very interesting tart cherry flavour, much more organic and tart than that of Intense Red Kriek. Quite sour and interesting. Glad I saved this one for a year after my Belgium trip.

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.

Cheers!
