4.63/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

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

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.
