Another tasty lambic brew.

A- very bubbly translucent purple-red grape color with a light purple small head

S- sweet black cherries and horse blanket

T- Great flavor but somewhat light for a lambic. Tastes like the cherries that are suggested with more tartness than most cherries

M- soda feeling with large carbonation and a light, slightly syrupy body feeling

D- Drinks great. A good balance of flavors

Ruby red ale with a small pink colored head.

Smells of spicy cherry. Big scent of cherries and spice. Essentially it smells like cherry pie. Smells sweet and a little tart. Very fruity.

Starts out tasting of cherry and woody with a tart after taste. Distinct taste of cork. Mildly bitter but is more of an astringent bitterness.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a tasty beer. On the sweet side for a Lambic.

Pours a clear reddish color with minimal pinkish head. Cherries, oak, and some light funk on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with a little sweetness, nice cherry flavor, and some oak wood.

Sampled at THT June tasting. Hazy purple with no head. Cherries in the nose, cherries and some cabbage in the taste. Tons of sugar. Medium body with no carbonation.

Reviewed in "Michael Jackson's Great Beers of Belgium", this awaits my review once I have it again... although it is a bit too sweet for me to seek.

Orange/ruby in color with tiny head. Aroma of sour cherries and malt. Nothing special, but not bad either. Just average. Sugary sweetness stays on the palate.

The color is beautiful, ruby red, clear.
Foam, no, just a few mid-sized bubbles.
The aroma is reminiscent of delicate cherry liqueur, strawberry and feel slightly like a touch of cinnamon
Taste: stewed cherries but also very delicate notes of strawberry, raspberry and cinnamon which is this time quite clear.
Bitterness is minimal, delicate and stone. The loading medium, in this case a suitable
In conclusion Kriekenlambik of De Troch is very delicious beer, slightly tart and slightly seasoned perfectly suited to the heat of the day

A: Red with a brown tinge, cloudy with yeast sediment on the bottom of my glass. Topped with a pinkish brown tinged white head.

S: Cherries, red fruit, raspberries, malt, sour raspberry vinegar, sweet and artificial sweetener qualities.

T: Light sour lemon notes, light fresh cherries, a sort of stale closet moth ball effect.

M: Way more watery than I’d expected and less carbonated too. Flat with almost no fine carbonation. Lemon water in consistency. A hint of mustard.

O: Unique, watery and I think this one, which has no BBD, is really old. If its supposed to taste like this, it’s a little lacking in substance. Got in Chiang Mai at Beer Terminals, drank in Kunming March 28th, 2015.
