Poured from a 375 ml bottle set in a traditional lambic basket into a Drie Fonteinen branded logo stemmed crystal glass

Pours a murky violet burgundy capped by a light pinkish sea foam-like head that dissipates almost immediately. The nose brings whiffs of oak, cherry, berry-like fruitiness, and a bit of vinegar. Tart cherries and oak greet the tastebuds immediately, hints of mixed berries, hay, and balsamic vinegar join in, finishes with the perfect amount of mouth puckering sour and musty oak and a final burst of sour cherries. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Overall, an truly exceptional brew.

750ml bottle - Delirium Cafe

We had a lot of these. At 13 Euros, seemed like one of the bigger bargains in the book. Add to that the fact they were dishing out 2006 vintages! Things got so great that they were busy enough to not even uncork them anymore, and as a result I have a 2006 vintage of this beer sitting in my closet here in Seattle.

This has aged absolutely fantastic - not as tart as Drie Fonteinen Schaerbeekse Kriek, but better. The finish is so rich and decadently cherry - similar to the finish on the Lou Pepe Kriek, but better even. Layers of tart and sweet cherry, oak, earthy notes. The dark cherry plays so nicely.
