On tap at Camping in Beersel. Dark almost blood red with a pink cherry froth. Aroma of sweet fresh cherries, finish hints at red wine fruit and just a touch of lambic sourness. Flavor too is dominated by freshly picked cherries although there is a bit of a sugary sweetness to be found here as well. Sourness is mild but present in a balancing way so as to not make this overl y sweet or wet. Some tartness enters play in the finish. Somewhat one dimensional but that dimension is done quite well. This lambic lives somewhere between Lindemans and the Oude Geuze of Beersel's past.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

375ml caged and corked bottle, sort of the little brother to the Oude Kriek Vieille, I gather.

This beer pours a clear, dark magenta amber hue, with three fat fingers of puffy, fairly creamy, and mildly bubbly pale pink head, which leaves some thick swaths of low-lying fog lace around the glass as it slowly sinks away.

It smells of semi-sweet and tart cherry juice, earthy yeast, gritty pale malt, a touch of sugary caramel, faint funky notes, and softly leafy, weedy, and grassy hops. The taste is more candied cherry, with a decent enough tartness offset, pale and wheaty malt, a tame red vinegar sourness, ethereal Belgian yeast, and sort of musty, earthy, and wet grassy hops.

The bubbles are nice and zippy in their tight frothiness, the body a so-so medium weight, with a thinning from all the fruitiness apparent almost from the get-go. It finishes on the sweet side, the cherries seeing this one through, alongside a growing musky, somewhat funky astringency.

Definitely on the sweeter side of Belgian Krieks, but not quite approaching the Lindemans horizon. Enough tart and musty yeast character presides, allowing for a more or less enjoyable and drinkable sour cherry beer, even if the shelf price of this offering does not exactly scream out 'buy me again and again'.

Bought this one without realizing it wasn't the oude version. Oh well.

A: Pours a deep purplish-red with a nice light purple head.

S: Moderately sweet cherry flesh in the nose. Not much acidity. A hint of wheat and vinous oak tannins.

T: Taste brings pleasant cherry sweetness interrupted briefly by a very mild note of tartness. Some vanilla and a bit of oak are detected as well, and a bit of subtle muskiness.

M: Light-bodied with full, creamy carbonation.

O: Not disgustingly sweet, but pretty disappointing with the lack of acidity. Next time I'll make sure I'm getting Vieille.
