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.
Serving type: cask

375 ml bottle at Akkurat, bottled January 16 2002.
A- Pours a red color with a bit of clearness compared to fresher kriek, produces a tiny head.
S- Surprisingly huge cherry aroma, nice damp, earthy funkiness, citrus and oak.
T- Funkiness is very prominent with great earthy, wet, woody flavors, along with a great cherry flavor and loads of tartness.
M- Nice moderate carbonation, very very sour.
O- Awesome beer, this bottle had a really nice amount of fruit present. Excellent stuff.
