4.25/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

2008 bottle:

poured a deep ruby red with a finger of pink head. smells of perfume, cherries, lactobacillus, wine barrels. the taste is very tart up front, lots of sour cherry, funky barnyard wet hay, cork, cedar. medium body with high carbonation.. nice and tart.

a lovely lambic i got in a trade for 2 heady toppers. worth it in my opinion. lots of nice sourness makes me love this even more than i should! can't really feel the heavy abv, it is masked well by the tart fruityness.

4.21/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

My palate for sours is still evolving, but I enjoy trying new things, so looking forward to this. At five years, this would be the oldest beer I've ever rated. I just can't seem to keep them around very long.

Purple with some light red hues and a thin, tan head.

An array of overly sour fruits (chiefly cherry) float soft to the nose, followed by a deep, musty character and notes of brett. Someone left the fruit cart out in the sun too long, or perhaps just right.

Taste is refined with slightly sweet and tart dark fruits (cherry, plum, prune, grape), some fruit skin, and a bit of grain and yeast.

Medium bodied, smooth and dry with no alcohol noticed.

To quote Burroughs, it's "...the most decent, most deeply sour beer I have ever known!" Or something to that affect. Either way it's the finest example of a lambic that I've had, so these beers just might be growing on me.

4.05/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a blood red color and a thick texture. There was an inch of foamy, pink-colored, long-lasting head. Not much lacing.

S: Not surprisingly, a lot of cherries in the aroma, along with an earthy quality as well.

T: Sour cherries dominate flavor. There's also a funkiness, along with the earthy quality. Apples also make an appearance. This is a very well done flavor, one that's more sour than sweet, but that's not a problem.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a sour finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a very solid, well made lambic. Definitely drinkable.

***2009 Vintage***

Poured from a 375ml bottle, best before 17.08.2031.

Pours a blood-red pink body with a head that is unmistakably pink. Cream, sour cherries in the aroma. Flavor has a nice balance of sweet and sour cherries. Feel is a touch acidic, next to no carbonation, oak is light. Enjoyed it but not quite up to par with some other Krieks IMO.
