Review for De Cam Oude Kriek. Bottling date unknown at this time. 750ml. Approximately 6.5%ABV. Poured into a De Garde Sundae glass (thanks box_social!)

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, seductive, dark red. A one-finger pinkish-red head forms and quickly dissipates.

Aroma: Fresh cherry jam. Candied lemon. Funktastic basement.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Tart lemon is dominant. Cherry flavor is underlying and very subtle. Refreshing, but relatively sour. Medium-bodied. Low carb.

Overall: Very drinkable despite it's sourness. It's like a tart lemonade with a hint of cherry juice added. Not bad, but not mind blowing. It hits familiar notes of a Kriek beer, but is overwhelmed by tart lemons. Complete waste of 15 euros.

Pours a light red color with pinkish head. Light cherries and berries on the nose, and some tartness/funk; follows onto the palate. Very light, but complex lambic. Very good.

Has a fizzy, small head, and a slightly hazy dark red color with ruby hints to it.

Funky barnyard aromas unfold along lots of leather, and hints of sour yoghurt, wrapped up by a gently cherry fruitiness. Wooden, bready malts with damp hops stand against a super-dry, acidic sourness.

Cherries blend well into the sour aspect of the beer, providing a mellow sweetness, while adding more depth to the wooden malts as well. At the same time, the cherries don’t seem to be too young and pungent fruity, but with a ripe fermented touch and lots of stone qualities to them. The uprising sourness during the middle part is defined by an immense dryness, illustrated by cherry fruitiness. This brew has a great balance, with a very well defined, intense sourness, accompanied by an earthy, complex cherry note.
