4.35/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

375ml bottle. Pours a deep, fairly clear garnet red with a surprisingly full, creamy-looking pink head. Lacing is non-existent. Smells sharply lactic and tannic; plenty of oak. The cherries don't really come through until it warms, and then only faintly at the end. Light brett notes. Tastes quite sour, again with a lot of lactic acid. Woody and earthy. The cherries are more noticeable here. Bone-dry finish. Medium body with prickly carbonation. A surprisingly nice 'oude' lambic from Boon.

A classic Belgian fruit beer whose taste and aroma are simply saturated with the tart tang of Cherries. A sipping beer rather than a session beer, it needs to be served in a goblet or wine glass to appreciate it's full flavour. A good dessert beer for after a full meal.

P- Thanks to my new buddy Donn in Germany for this brew

A- dark red like that of forzen cherries. No head and no lacing.

S- sour cherry, somewhat like cold cherry pie. Some faint malt tones come through but not much.

F- wow, sour cherry packs a punch in this brew. That is all i taste. That is true to lambic though.

M- sourness and creamy cherry.

O- I have never been a big lambic fan and this doesnt convince me. However, the style seems on par though.

Ok, here we go with another Kriek.

vigorous pour produces a few finger of pink foam that disappears immediately into nothing. Body is a beautiful ruby. not much carbonation visible.

smells of sour cherries, some funk but maybe some horse blanket

taste is sour but not overly sour, with some cherry flavor and a hint of sweetness.

fine tickling carbonation, really spritzy. very light, but not watery.

A refreshing kriek for the summer months, not too sour and definitely not sweet, a good example for the Oude Kriek style. However, I would love to have a stronger cherry flavor and hint of more sweetness for the balance
