Labeled "Kriek 2001", "botteld in 2002" on the cork.
Cap is grey underneath, cork is wet, and also turning grey. Something about musty old lambics is very appealing, but it can be hard to pin down. The tiniest "pop" is heard once the cork is extracted. Wisps of smoke appear, and the crimson liquid pours with a suprising amount of crackling pink foam.
Honey, hay, fermenting black cherries, exquisite natural aromas.
Wild funky yeast gives off the prerequisite waft of horseblanket.
Tangy sour cherry at the tail end and into the long dry finish. Otherwise, fairly mellow and woody. It comes together well, without the brashness of a young lambic, it lets the subtleties really shine. Rich Schaerbeek cherry intensity, almost like cherry pie, with the complexity of cherry skins and pits thrown in too. Long, dry finish that has sublime aged wood and sour fruit flavors. Residual lemony sourness on the lips. Honey in the aftertaste, with a hint of clover. One to savor, and not on an empty stomach!
