2006 bottle

A: Cloudy pink/ruby with a decent head when poured that leaves a nice lingering ring around the top of the brew. Some sediment

S: Nice fruity/tart cherry notes. Wood tannins and plenty of barnyard funk to go around. A little bit of mustiness too

T: Very very tasty. The cherries provide a very nice balanced sweetness and tartness making me pucker a little bit. Nice wood notes that in addition to the brett funk bring out very nice earth tones

M: Slightly vineagary but very flavorful with each sip. A fare amount of dryness is present as well

D:Split the 375 and I think that I could have enjoyed the whole thing myself

Bottle: Poured a dark reddish color lambic with a rather large pink foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of sour cherries is dominant but with more acidic notes then anticipated. Taste is a closer to actual lambic then I would have expected and a lot more closer tot he real thing then their regular brand. Oak, sour cherries with no syrup and tart and acidic notes makes a refreshing drink. Well done but unfortunately not available oversea.

Bright cherry scent similar to 3F Oude Kriek but a little on the artificial side. Ruby color with no head. Quick lactic sourness with a very dry finish that leads into a small bit of cherry flavor. Pretty one dimensional for a kriek. Very different from the oude gueuze.

Thanks to Brad for sharing this bottle. Served in a Dark Lord mini snifter.

Pours a nice deep red color with a thin white head and some light lacing. The nose carries a good dosing of cherries and some light funk. Mild lactic character there as well. Flavor is cherries and lactic acid. Good combination, but lacking in real depth. Crisp carbonation and a nice fruity finish. Dry. Pretty good, but not in the top echelon.

Thank you, Nathan.

Clear cherry red with a thin, off-white head that falls off to a ring, this looks decent. The nose is rather yeasty and fruity with a chunky cherry character, mildly cherry pie-like without any real spice. Not much funk, if any, really, the lambic base isn't particularly strong here. The palate is fruity, chewy, mildly leathery, mildly salty with no real funk. Decent, this beer is moderately carbonated and quite drinkable.

Bottle from the free table at Woodshop 5.0. Pours the color of guava juice, with a smattering of ecru carbonation. Aroma is acetic and lightly chlorinic with the expected sharp cherry character. Flavor is more ascorbic acidic with sour citrus than cherry, although there is a pitty cherry note. Dry woody finish with some astringency.

Had this last night. Thanks to Brad for the chance to try this obscurity. 375mL bottle shared with my homie Nick. From notes, I believe this to be a 2005 bottle.

Pours a stunning cherry red hue with some light peeking through at the edges. Big bubbly whitish pink head fades to big bubbles and a foam ring throughout the session.

At cooler temps (40s), the funk was very restrained - cat piss mostly. Some month old cheese that you left in the back of the fridge by accident starting to stink up as it warmed. Nice cherry juiciness and gentle oak impact. Some earth as well.

Really nice authentic cherry in the taste, none of that manufactured shit. Moderate tartness and tannin presence leading to a drying finish. Funkiness described in the aroma was present throughout but made itself most known as it warmed in the aroma and mid-palate.

Low to medium bodied with a subdued carbonation despite the initially vibrant appearance. A little bit of a slippery mouthfeel helps some more of the mustiness come through. Very drinkable and a very pleasant lambic. Thanks for the chance, Brad! I definitely wouldn't have tracked this one down otherwise.

A: Light ruby red body. Thinish pink head. Just a few wisps of lacing left behind.

S: Bright, sweet cherries. A touch of tartness. A tad artificial, but not exactly over the top medicinal.

T: Artificially sweet cherries are pretty much the only flavor going on here. Nothing in terms of farmhouse or musty notes. Again, its not too medicinal despite the artificial sweetness.

M: Smooth with a light tingly carbonation. The artificial sweetness is just a tad cloying but does not significantly impair the feel.

D: Not the worst lambic, but I just can't see myself seeking out krieks in this style. That said, I'm sure its suitable for some palates and it is a better alternative to the Boon Kriek.
