On draft at the Drie Fonteinen Restaurant, paired with a Dame Blanche!
A: Dark purple in color, darker than the oude kriek, head is pink foamy and huge with quite a good retention.
S: Smell is fruity and mild tart with lots of red fruits, dark fruits and above all cherries.
T: Taste is even more fruity with lots of cherries, dark cherries, oak and also some chocolate. Very sweet, decadent, full and rich.
M: Medium bodied with a nice carbonation. Very drinkable, so juicy.
O: I felt ashamed while drinking this, this is a kriek with sugar added, all what I should hate, but this was actually one of the best kriek I've ever tried. It reminded me a lot of Rodenbach Alexander as a fat still juicy dessert bier. I will have it again for sure!

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.
