The Mort Subite became my pioneer expedition into Belgian Lambic. I did not have high
expectations and true enough it was not really impressive. Coincidentally, this bottle is
Cherry flavour (Kriek) which is the same flavour as the Klosterbrauerei Neuzelle Kirsch
Bier which I tasted some time ago. The Mort Subite pours out with a generous head which
grows and sinks in quickly; I managed to do a nice pour on this one. This lambic smells
a little fruity, a little yeasty and also rather sour. The taste was about reflecting this
smell except maybe the fruitiness is stronger. I am not sure however if it was the yeast
or the malt that gives of a strange taste which felt a little medicinal and somehow spoilt
the experience. The fruitiness and subtle sweetness was not enough to save the day. I
think I prefer the German Nuezelle Kirsch to this Mort Subite Kriek. The Mort Subite is ok
and I can recognize the effort to make it more beery than the Nuezelle Kirsh which was closer
to the level of syrupy than any beers I have tried but I would probably save on ordering
this one. Nevertheless, I would probably still try other Lambics like the Lindermans,
Timmermans which are available in Singapore. The Cantillon is, unfortunately unavailable.
Other Lambics like the Floris and the De Troch Chapeau would be stuff I would probably just
pass on.

3.58/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

375mL corked and caged bottle poured into a tulip. Best before 01/28/2015

(A)- Pours a deep crimson red color. Produced some solid off-white to pink froth with surprising retention and lacing for the style.

(S)- Huge aromas of slightly tart cherries. Quite clean on the nose apart from some subtle dryness. Otherwise massive cherry jam notes.

(T)- Subtle tart & dry oakiness leads the way into mountains of jammy cherry juice.

(M)- A good carbonation level for the style. Not overly sour or acidic, but great fruit notes. Very clean for the style too with no funk but a bigger sweetness to it overall.

(O)- Its a milder lambic for sure. Great fruit with some oak, just lacking the complexity and sourness one can expect for the style.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from bottle into tulip glass, colour is an attractive red colour with a head of pinkish foam, good film retention. Clear and bright.

S - sweet candied cherries. Like the snow cone syrup, quiet sweet and a bit artificial feeling, some slight sour funk, a bit vegetal.

T - starts with a balanced sharpness, bit of tartness which then fades as it becomes more sweet. Some lemony cherries, some strong sweetness to it, quite candied, but it does have enough carbonation to manage to clean it off, finish is quiet and light.

M - very light bodied. With a hint of tartness, moderate to high carbonation making this a refreshing aperitif.

Overall this has a mild tartness, lacks any real sour character, and has such a candy cherry sweetness it is a bit cloying if not for the carbonation to clean off the finish. Quite a light beer, only a slight oak character, it's a bit of a fruit bomb but makes a pleasant refreshing aperitif, would want to restrain myself to one though, it's more balanced than the smell would indicate and makes a refreshing if overall if mostly exciting Kriek.
