Served from cask at Drei Fonteinen into a tumbler as all lambic seems to be served in Payotenland. Perfect match for a Guinea Hen cooked in this same beer.

Appearance: hazy, almost murky purple-red body with a surprisingly thick frothy pink head that slowly dissipates to bubbly lace.

Aroma: Huge cherry aroma, ample wood, touches of lactic acid, hints of plastic tarp.

Taste: This is the real deal! A pefect blend of tart fresh cherries, lambic sourness, lactic acidity that adds a wonderful creaminess, and tannic qualities that add depth and character. Currants and to a much lesser degree plums and strawberries are also found. Outstanding.

Mouthfeel: Rich, creamy, moderately sour but quite tart, bubbly, surprisingly dry.

Drinkability: A plus.

Pours a nice reddish-ruby color. Not much retention and lacing
Smell - really nice smell of sour cherries and lacto.
Taste- follows the nose. Nice tartness,somewhat dry.
Feel - medium-light with moderate carb.
Overall - nice Kriek. I can see why this beer is so highly rated.

Enjoyed this at a recent Wild and Sour beer event called Funk'd. Really enjoyed this and compared to others I had of the style I believe this was my favorite. Great fruity notes and clean cherry finish with no waxy or bandaid finish....great Kriek!!!!

Dark lollipop red, slightly hazy,. Aroma is fantastic. Macerated cherries. Woody character. This is authentic Kriek, nothing artificial here. Quite sour, more so than Oud Beersel. Slight tannic bitterness in the finish. Not as dense as Oud Beersel, yet more than Cantillon. Carbonation is fairly low.
