2008 750ml bottle.

Dark blood red, tiny bit of pink head. Aroma is heavy on the tart cherry with a ton of new pool toys. Flavors are mild sour cherry, lactic and a unique funky hay and moldy wood. Mild carbonation. Decent but not worth the price tag. I LOVE 3F gueuze. Their fruit beers are not on the same level though.

I pulled the trigger on the big bottle. 750ml poured into a Russian River Belgian Stemmed glass.

Bottled 28 April, 2010.

A - Pours a clear, Koolaid red with only a few white bubbles then they are gone.

S - Super tart and funky smelling. Sour with some slight cherry tones.

T - Tart and funky fruit, very slight cherry finish.

D - Lower carbonation, light body. Sour and tart throughout.

O - Soft and light, but super tart.

750ml bottle poured into a snifter. Opened to celebrate the birth of my 3rd child, It's a Boy! Major thanks to Phelps for this in the Tickers BIF.

A: Beautiful reddish pink color, with a nice ruby glow when held to the light. About a half finger of white head with a touch of pink tint. Good retention and beautiful lacing.

S: Big funky, tart, sour cherries. Light traces of oak in the background. Nothing complex but smells awesome.

T: Sweet cherries upfront immediately taken over by tartness. Light funkiness and sourness comes through in the middle. Cherries consuming the finish and aftertaste. Super tasty.

M: Light body. Medium high carbonation. Puckering is pretty big until you adjust. Mouth continues to water for a while after each drink.

O: One of the top sours I've had. Just a tasty drinkable brew.

Thanks to ms11781 for this bottle of the 2008 vintage. Split four ways. Reviewed on 9/9/2011 and posted here from notes taken that night.

The color is a beautiful deep ruby red that almost glows when held up to the light. As is the case with many of Armand's lambics, there is no head, but there is plenty of lively carbonation to make up for it.

The aroma is light and bright, full of fresh cherries, a very clean lemony lactin sourness, and some mineraly goodness that I really enjoy from 3F offerings. On the palate, there are lots of sweet cherries, and they take center stage. The lactic lemony notes blend with a gnarly sweaty gym sock, wet hay, and dank funkiness.

Lively and bright, this is an awesome kriek, though I find that the other notes that I am enjoying are prying my focus from the delicious cherries. That, combined with the price tag, makes this not quite equal to Cantillon's Kriek lambic in my book.

Pours a light red with no head but visible carbonation. Aroma of oak, funk and cherries, just as any good kriek. Taste and mouthfeel is where this really shines. Taste rich of cherries, oak and funk back up the cherries nicely. Tart like no other I've had, mouth puckering in the best way possible. This is a real treat

Poured into tulip.

Appearance: Bright red, white head, moderate lacing.

Smell: sour cherries, feet, funk, earthy, tart red fruit.

Taste: sour cherries, red wine vinegar, earthy, funky, tart, acidic.

Mouthfeel: light bodied, good carbonation, acidic.

Overall: A very tasty kriek. The smell is a bit off-putting but still very drinkable.

Pours a dark red color with a light pink head. Scent is funky as shit with sweaty gym socks and sweet cherries. Tons of barnyard funk and tart cherry aroma. Not nearly as funky as the regular kriek from 3F though. Taste is immediately sour cherry and biting vinegar. Tons of sour and barrel flavors. Lovely barnyard funk. Awesome cherry flavors. Mouthfeel is sour and sticky on the teeth...medium bodied. Drinkability is high. Overall, this is an amazing kriek lambic. I wish I could do a side by side with the regular kriek from this awesome brewery. 3F never lets me down.

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

Popped this cork to celebrate my recent promotion. Here's hoping it was worth the considerable investment. It pours a cloudy tawny-rose topped by a few fingers of pink-tinted white foam. The nose comprises tart cherry, light cobweb, vanilla, light caramel (very akin to caramel corn), dank oak, lactic acid, lemon zest, and a twist of ruby red grapefruit. The taste brings in more of the same, though the lactic acid and sour citrus notes seem to cloud the cherries out a bit. A touch of white wine vinegar is tossed into the mix as well, just to liven things up a bit. It's surprising that the tartness isn't more powerful, especially considering the effect it had on the back of my teeth. The body is a light medium, with a moderate carbonation and a dry, rather sticky finish. Overall, a very nice lambic, though it's hard to really enjoy it for an extended period of time (without experiencing some negative side effect of the sourness). Though I feel the cherries were talked-up a bit too much, I'd gladly take another glass, but I doubt I'd shell out the $35+ for it very often in the future.

Bottle purchased by me at a long-forgotten location. Dated March 22, 2006. Served in a Struise cervoise.

A - A half-finger of white foam settles to some wisps and a thick collar, leaving behind a few stray splotches of lace. Hazy dark red with a touch of orange to it.

S - Aroma is stellar. Massive amounts of delicious Schaerbeekse cherries, some light vanilla, lactic acidity, mushroom and earthy funk, and a touch of acidity as the beer warms up. I'm shocked by how present the fruit is after five and a half years. This was comparable with Dirty Horse for best-smelling cherry beers I've encountered.

T - The taste isn't quite on the same transcendent plane as the aroma, but it's still quite excellent, marrying tart cherry with earthy funk, some dry oak, a bit of leathery brett, green apple skins, and some musty attic. It's got that great aged lambic character to it, but the intense fruitiness has mellowed out leaving mostly acidity and tartness behind.

M - Medium body, with a dry and tannic finish, and a sticky juice-like character. Carbonation was lower than I anticipated - this could have used a touch more spritz to it. I'm wondering if the synthetic cork contributed to the modest amount of bubbles.

D - If this weren't so expensive I'd buy it regularly. That being said it's similar in price to Lou Pepe Kriek, arguably superior, and is much easier to find (until people wise up and start hoarding, of course). I'm curious if I'll ever have the patience to let this sit on my shelf for five years again.

Bottle

Best Damn Sour Fest
Bootlegger
San Diego, CA

Dark ruby and red with pink edges and a thin pink head. Leaves small spots and thin webs of lacing down the glass.

An incredible combination consisting of incredibly powerful, stinging sourness, plump and juicy cherries, and earthy oak. Everything is in balance yet powerful, all at once. Perfect.

The flavor too is just phenomenal. The cherries are vibrant and tart, the sourness is consistent and strong from sip to swallow. This is lip puckering stuff here! Phenomenal.

Medium bodied with high carbonation.

A truly special beer. One of my favorites.

Bottled on 4-28-2010.

Pours magnificently red with a small light pink head that fades quickly. Very little lacing. The beer looks almost artificially red. Very neat.

Tart cherries, oak, earthy funk in the aroma. Slightly cheesy funk. Sour with a touch of sweetness coming through. Thoroughly complex.

Sour, really sour. Having had many sour wild ales lately, I wasn't expecting this to hit me over the head, but it sure does. Tons of tart cherries combine with sour and funk. Still a hint of sweetness in the middle of it. Oak and more funk are apparent after getting accustomed to the sourness. Super dry but the sourness lingers for a while.

Relatively low carbonation, but that doesn't keep it from feeling lively. Decent body, fills the mouth quite well.

Awesome sour beer. So many other sour/wild ales really just can't compare to the folks at Drie Fonteinen.

750ml bottled in October of 2008 continously poured into two tulips, dregs dumped into a taster.

Ruby red, upon pouring some head is stirred up but it quickly dissipates into a ring of foam around the edges of the glass. Clear body with some bubbles dancing to the top. Nothing out of the ordinary here.

Funk and tart cherries upon your first whiff of the beer. Funk with all that barnyardy goodness and a little bit of a medicinal quality to it. Some gym sock and a faint bit of lactic funk in there too as it begins to warm. Agitation brings out more tart cherries with a subdued funk and more medicinal scents.

Pleasantly tart cherries greet your palate with a much softer funk than the nose. Actually, the taste here is much more abrasively sour and fruity than the smell. Hints of the funk upon swallow and some what muddled throughout but the taste here is all about the cherries.

Sticky sweet on the palate with low carbonation. More sticky than most other krieks.

Sharp tart cherries with a good funk. A pretty solid example of the style, and to be honest I am surprised how well the fruit has held up in this one. This was the last bottle on the shelf at one of my favorite shops in town so I had to grab it seeing as proper lambic is becoming a scarce commodity in this country.

A - pours a deep dark red, almost purple. No head at all.

S - the first thing I smell is funk. Funk and sour. It smells like other krieks I've had.

T - well not to sound cliche but there's lots of cherries. Good tartness and awesome belgian funk.

M - medium bodied with medium to heavy carbonation.

O - great kriek and awesome sour! I love lambics and wild ales!!!

Pour from a bottle that was corked on April 28, 2010, into a goblet.

Deep crimson with cherrywood undertones. Murky. The head, pink and girlish, flits away teasingly.

Schaerbeekse kriek smells like the inside of a winery, full of fermenting fruit and freshly-emptied oak barrels. It’s also funkier than George Clinton, with heavy helpings of hay, horses and lemongrass. Cherry syrup is there, but in a more subdued form than I would’ve liked.

The flavor moves the barnyard funk to the background, but replaces it with a burly balsamic acidity holds hard to the sides of the tongue. Tart and sweet, with smacks of underripe cherries that become more prominent as I work my way through the glass. Lemon peel, vanilla and new oak stand out against a backdrop of red wine.

Champagne-like in carbonation, the beer’s highly effervescent, which only accentuates the feathery medium-light body.

There’s no denying Schaerbeekse Kriek is a quality example of the style — a true lambic, with the accompanying tartness and funk — but I wish there was a touch less sour stuff and more sweetness. It gets a little too abrasive near the end of the glass, and I find myself wishing for more cherry.

Cloudy bright red colour with no head. Actually quite cloudy. Good.

Nicely funky aroma with a tart edge. Very sour cherries. Good.

A complex balance of soured cherry and funk. Very lightly bitter although that may be astringency. I quite like this.

Medium light body with moderately-high carbonation. Good and not overly puckering.

A balanced yet tart Kriek. Good cherry flavour and quite nice on the whole though it doesn't blow me away.

Poured from a 750mL bottle dated April 28, 2010 into a Duvel 0.5L tulip.

A: Tons of loud fizzy carbonation forms a pinkish head, which fades quickly into a wispy lacing. Body is a beautiful deep ruby hue. There is not much lacing, but I still think it looks great.

S: Cherry aromas foremost, with a wonderful sourness and slight bit of funk.

T: Powerfully sour, but less funk than I'd hoped. Wonderful complex fruit aftertaste.

M: Less carbonation than the pour suggests. Mouthfeel is fairly thin, and absolutely puckering from the sourness.

O: Overall, I think I am drinking this beer too young maybe. I was expecting more brett complexity. The fruit flavor is great, but the sourness could be overshadowing the other flavors.

Enjoyed at the Alvinne Craft Beer Festival In Belgium. Reviewed from notes.

Brilliant cherry red body. no head or carbonation.

Smells a bit of malt but mainly of really fresh cherries.

Tastes of concentrated fresh cherry juice, with some wood and some bitterness from the cherry pits.

Body is light and with no carbonation, it has a flat mouthfeel. But the mouth just bursts delightfully with fresh cherry flavor.

Great tasting cherry lambic.

Bottle date of 4/25/11 poured into a Drie Fonteinen tumbler. This brew pours a hazed color of deep beet red. About a finger of bright pink head forms across the top and slowly fades leaving some spots of lace clinging to the glass. The bubbles pop and fizz across the top and collect around the edge of the glass. A light swirl revives some bubble formation back to the surface.

The aroma of this brew has that classic Drie Fonteinen funk with lots of earthy tones and a bit of herbal aspect mixed with stinky cheese and diaper. Some pitted to rotten/over-ripen cherry character mixes with light notes of plastic and vinegar. Wet leather runs rapid throughout this brew with a little bit of mildew and old cork character.

The taste mirrors the aroma pretty much flawlessly but with more intense cherry character. The funky flavors of earth and wet leather are the first things noted with a slightly acidic note. Cherry flavoring runs throughout with a taste of pits and very mild oak to vanilla flavoring with a very light spiced touch of something almost like cinnamon. The cherries provide an added depth to the sour character of this brew and a pleasantly mild contrasting sweetness that is very natural tasting. Throughout the entire experience this brew never once came across being medicinal like some kriek's do.

This is a medium to light bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. I wanted to tackle this offering with as fresh a bottle as possible to see how much fruited flavor was in one of these before it fades and the funk overtakes it. I was not disappointed in the least. I really enjoyed the natural flavoring of this brew and it was very easy drinking. At no point did I pick up on the 5% alcohol that was listed on the bottle.

2008 Vintage. Poured from a foiled, corked and caged 750ml bottle into a Cantillon tulip. Like wearing Addidas pants with Nike sneakers... Shared with schen9303.

Pours a 1 finger frothy pink head with low retention. Beer is a dark, semi-clear ruby. Lacing is non-existant but with decent legs. Slightly above average due to the color.

Nose is tart cherry, some cobweb and hay funk. Some yeasty sharpness. Not overly funky or cheesy but with a robust fruit aroma. Nice.

Opens tart cherry, some yeasty spiciness. More big semi-sweet cherry notes towards the middle. Cobweb, wet hay, and barnyard funk. Yeasty fruit throughout. Some light bitterness. Cinnamon and oak notes towards the end. Finish is tart cherry puree with some band-aid taste. Really fruit forward, funky, and tart. Exceptional.

Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Light but lively in the mouth and some bubbles going down. Dry finish with a puckering and dry, lingering aftertaste. Really accents the flavor well.

While its not the most impressive looking or smelling fruit lambic, Schaerbeekse Kriek is definitely among the most fruit forward and tastiest. Probably one of, if not the most impressive widely available lambic out there now. Fresh vintages take almost completely blow away the competition in my opinion. Worth the hefty price tag.

Reviewed from notes-- still trying to get caught up!

I've opened up a few of these, but finally reviewed one at a tasting.

Pours a pinkish rosey color with a creamy and frothy off-white head. No real lacing to speak of. Some spots of cling, but not long.
Smells of really strong over-ripened, nearly rotting fruit-- cherries mainly-- oh fuck--- I snorted some of it!!! That was a bad move.
I went in for a super big sniff and dove in to far... If you don't think this beer is very sour, try snorting it!
Good flavor. Lots of cherries and oak. Nice sourness is balanced and integrated.
The body is full with low carbonation.
Very high drinkability. Tasty enough to be good, complex enough to keep me interested, and sour enough to scratch that sour itch. The biggest strike against this beer is the $37 price tag.

(Served in a chalice)
bottled Oct. 17, 08
A- This beer pours a dense crystal clear red body with a brown hue to it and a pink sherbert head that is bubbly and soon fades away. The carbonation is bright and fast tiny bubbles.

S- The light barnyard aroma has a bright earthy quality that grows followed by a dry jammy cherry note in the finish.

T- The dry light barnyard note has a slight watery taste before a full fruit flavor with a soft tartness come in to play. There is a light dark cherry note in the finish that takes on a slight jammy quality. The finish has notes of old wood and a light aspirin brett hint.

M- The light mouthfeel has no real astringency and a dry fizz in the finish.

O- The barnyard and cherry notes are nice but turn a bit watery as the beer opens up. The very soft tartness and not much depth make it a bit drap to drink the whole bottle.

Had this out of a bottle at the Portland International Beerfest in July. $7 for four ounces was a bit steep, but was excited to tick this one.

Appearance: Pink and ruby hued spritzy brew, looking somewhat goofy next to the 14% stouts being served at the booths surrounding it. Somewhat like a Cherry 7-Up, but murkier and with very lively carbonation.

Smell: Tart and sweet cherries are accompanied by cavity-inducing sourness in the nose. Horse blanket funk is present as well, but lactic sour holds its own against the brettier notes.

Taste: Sour, certainly, and sweetness from the cherries. Sourness is somewhat layered as well, with the more bracing sourness never really tearing the enamel off your teeth. I think I'm having this beer too young, to be fair; the sweetness is still quite high, and the yeast with another year or three on that would pump out more of the sours, and allow the cherry-flavors to come through without being so offset by somewhat cloying sweetness. Still, really was hitting the spot on a hot afternoon, just not head-and-shoulders above its competition at this point.

Mouthfeel: Sour, tart, and finishing very lightly, with cherry notes on your tongue. Never gets medicinal, which is very appreciated. The sweetness doesn't adversely affect the finish either, and seems to solidify my guess that this beer would be served quite well by a little more time in the cellar.

Overall: Enjoyable, light, sour, and interesting, but I'm left wanting to try this in a vertical-style setting, where we can really see the beauty of the yeast taking the edge off of the sweetness. Worth seeking out if for no other reason than to forget about it for a while and tackle it on a warm day...as it's tasty now, and I can only imagine how tasty it'd be later.

A- This might be one of the most beautiful beers I've ever had the pleasure of pouring. Deep deep red, almost crimson red, with a gorgeous 2 finger pink head that quickly dissipates to nothing. Seriously sexy looking beer.

S- Smell is pretty nice, a lot of oak and sour funk. The cherries take a backseat but are definitely along for the ride, they have a very tart aroma not as sweet as other Kriek style beers I've smelled.

T- This one tart mofo. Lots of oak and wild yeast sourness up front. Cherries come in to kick your ass mid sip. The cherries are the star of the show, very tart upfront but a nice gentle sweetness is there to help move things along the palate towards the end. Theres tons of complexity but the tartness can be overwhelming to some of the more subtle characteristics.

M- Spot on for the style. Plenty of carbonation and not too thin.

O- This is an amazing beer. Best Kriek I've had the pleasure of tasting. The Schaerbeekse cherries are truly unique and are an obvious choice to pair with lambic style beer. Be ready to sip as this beast is very very tart.

Bottled date: October 17, 2008.

Cranberry, blood-red color with an orange-red edge alongside the thin, white head. Not much carbonation activity in the beer to be seen. One of reddest-looking beers I've ever seen. Looking back at my Oude Kriek review, they're visually similar. Incredibly vibrant when held against the light. Smell carries a lot of the oakiness from the wooden casks, with the massive amounts of sour cherries present in this. Slight hint of a medicinal quality. Can't really smell the "rareness" factor of Schaerbeekse cherries, but they are considerably more sweeter on the nose than the Polish cherries used for the Oude Kriek. Very little funk– not as much as I had originally anticipated for almost a 3-year old bottle. Apple skin tartness is also present on the back side.

Taste is very clean, almost vinous too. The sweetness of the Schaerbeekse cherries is fantastic. Lots of nice lactic acid goodness, oaky earthiness, prickly tartness and a thin sherry-like dryness. The age shows with the tartness being a profound quality in the taste. Natural and organic-tasting overall. Not too different in taste compared to the Oude Kriek, except there is a bit more sugary goodness for the palate.

Light-bodied mouthfeel with little carbonation and a thin dryness in the finish of the beer. Great tasting lambic, for sure. I'd say the price is justified a bit– was just hoping to have experienced a bit more, considering the rarity of these cherries. Just lucky to have been able to get a bottle of this and give it a try. Another well-done item by Armand.
