I am not sure if this is different than the other Schaerbeekse Kriek, but they have different labels, so they must be?

Bottled Oct 17, 2008. Consumed December 2016.

This beer reminds me a lot like the Schaerbeekse Kriek I had many years ago. Vibrant ruby red. White head.

Big cherries. Sweet. Tannins and medicinal notes. Maybe a bit of minerals. This is exactly how I remember it being, medicinal. More funky with some age on it. Barnyard horseblanket still here. Some brett showing.

This would be a great beer if the medicinal/tannin flavors weren't so prominent.

Vibrant garnet with a thin, white, slightly pink blanket.

Smell is really strong funk, horse blanket and cherry.

Taste is really smooth cherry pie filling, fresh cherry skin, with light vanilla and cinnamon running in the background.

Very dry.

October 2008 Vintage. Strongly colored from the cherries but it has a murky, dark garnet color which isn't the most appetizing. Minimal carbonation and no real head or lacing. The cherries have surely mellowed over time but they're still very much present and seem to have a more earthy flavor, presumably from the addition of the Schaerbeekse cherries. Acidity is very strong and it's quite puckering at times but never gets over the top. A nice beer but it didn't quite live up to my expectations.
