On tap at Camping in Beersel. Pours a bright red like a jar of bar cherries topped with a frothy deep pink head. Aroma of tart cherries pounds the nose from a foot away and is followed by touches of sweet brown sugar and hints of the mild lambic sourness that is to come. As expected cherry dominates the palate as well. There are hints of vinousness and a general red fruitiness but this isn't particularly depthful. Still, the sweet/tart character of the cherries mixed with the sourness of the lambic, which also dries the beer a little, makes this a very balanced and pleasant beer - as cherry beers go especially. I very much enjoyed it on this and other occasions.
Serving type: on-tap

375ml bottle at the Malt House in Madison, WI. Poured into a Duvel tulip today, 1/27/2014.
App- dark brownish red body, minimal white head, looks syrupy. Not much retention, no lacing.
Smell- Medicinal, cough syrup, Robitussin. Some cherry flavor, extremely sweet.
Taste- Disgusting. Overly sweet with cherry makes it incredibly medicinal.
Mouthfeel- Medium-thick body, custardy. Had to choke half the bottle down. Luckily for me, another BA was sharing this bottle with me.
Overall- Disgusting example of a kriek. You can do way, way better than this with other shelf krieks.. even Lindeman makes a better one. Look for the likes of Hannsen's or Oude Beersel.

375ml bottle poured into a Piraat Belgium tulip glass
A: 1 finger pale pink head with low retention. The beer itself is more of a dark purple/red color.
N: Plenty of cherry and some funk from spontaneous fermentation and 2 years of aging in oak vats. It really has the Luden's cough drop thing going on, but not a lot of complexity.
T: Confirms nose with some sweetness to it and a creamy mouthfeel.
O: It's an easy one to enjoy when you're in the mood for a lambic.
