Just popping open the cork was to be rushed with the fragrance of cherries. No messing around here then, fruit by name, fruit by nature.

Very red beer, and the head was distinctly pink. Guess what it smelt like, erm yes cherries, but also like the powdered sherbert that I loved as a kid.

Tastewise it was a revelation - I was expecting a sweet cloying flavour, but au contraire this was tart and acidic balanced out with a sweetness in the aftertaste, and as I did expect lots of fruitiness. The body was smooth and velvety.

Magnificent.

This pours a maroon red color with a foamy, light pink head. The aroma is rich with sweet cherries. The taste is sweet with cherries evolving into a tart finish. Decent flavor, but the texture is a little thinner than I would have imagined. A smooth, refreshing desert beer that I’m a little surprised doesn’t have a higher rating.

I have had gallons of this at the tavern of the same name several years ago located an alley or two off the Grote Markt in Brussels and from time to time score a bottle or two. My memories of Mort Subite Kriek with an omelet for a late breakfast probably influence my score upwards. The nose is cherries with a slight funk. This is a beautiful brilliant cherry color with a pink tinted foam cap and a fine bead. The beer is light, big on cherries, tart with a light balancing sweetness – probably a little sweeter than some Krieks but not like soda pop sweet. It is very effervescent with a fine soft carbonation. Very drinkable, especially for breakfast.

Single finger head on a reddish brown body. Tons if lacing, light aroma which is as expected mostly fruity and raspberry like. This is an excellent lambic with a nice raspberry and medicinal cherry taste up front and brown sugar finish with moderate to high carbinaion and light body. Overall very drinkable and one of the better lambic beers out there.

A - Poured with one finger of white foam on a clear, amber colored body. The head fades slowly and leaves thick lace.

S - Sour malty aroma with some medicinal cherry.

T - A sweet, candy like cherry character up front with some malty caramel in the middle. Finishes with caramel, tart fruit, and dark sugar.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - A very strong cherry presence with enough sweet and sour character to be eminently drinkable.
