Pinkish head, dark red color, sour sour sour cherry flavor and aroma, with some leather & other stinky notes. There must be a great food match for this beer b/c it's tough to drink by itself. Perhaps some marscapone? Boon's Mariage Parfait Kriek is so much better

Sampled on tap at Redbones.

This lambic poured a hazy, ruby color with no foam at all. The smell was a modest sour cherry aroma -- nice but subdued. The taste was tart cherry, somewhat sour, with a bit of horse blanket. A very good flavor overall. The mouthfeel was dry and crisp and tart with medium body and low carbonation. The slightly sour cherry flavor lingered pleasantly on the tongue. This was a very good kriek lambic, good to the last drop.

I had two of these, and could have kept drinking them, it's very good. Dark cherry color when poured, opaque. No head. Aroma is of fresh cherries, with some barnyard meets cinnamon. Taste has a measure of tartness, I actually didn't think this was as tart as the regular kriek. Very enjoyable, I also noticed some dry mustiness in the finish.

Dark purpley red with a fluffy pink head. True lambic aroma, sour, horses. Cherries of course. The flavor is SOUR. So sour the tongue mistranslates it as almost salty. Past that there's a lot going on underneath. Cherry is subtle here. Not the sweet soda beer of Lindeman's (which I do admit having a soft spot for) and instead a true lambic with the flavor of the fruit.

A very good brew. Not as assertive as some of there others stuff, but very tasty all the same. smelly barnyard/dirty nappy aroma. Very sour and quite tart, complex array of flavours attack the crap out for tongue, very sour, yummy and even refreshing, i'm yet to have a shitty beer from Cantillon.

A true rare treat enjoyed at the Boston Beer Summit. Pure, unadulterated cherry lambic beer. No blending. Clean cherry aroma, slightly sour and band-aid like with a hint of being tart. Flavor is a strong mix of band-aid and sour tartness. Cherry flavor doesn't come through but is enjoyable nonetheless.
