Enfant Terriple Tripel is aged for 6 months on cherries: 250 g sour, un-pitted cherries per litre beer. During this time, the bacteria are given time to digest all sugars even further and to let the soft natural souring have its way. Meanwhile, the cherries slowly donate their blood-red colour and their succulent taste. Part of this is transferred to the oak wine barrels where it ages on lactobacillus. During a year it adds further to a woody souring and softening. The result is a triple-kriek ‘pur sang’. With this, a new saint is added to the Cuvée family of Brewery De Leite. The Cuvée Soeur’Ise, is a wink to cherry in French (= ‘cerise’). The divine saint has already seduced many, all over the world!

Bottle from Etre
Lightly hazy dark red with a decent sized frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Wonderful earthy funky cherry on the nose with just a hint of balsamic. Flavor is lightly acetic earthy funky cherries. Great Cherry expression but I'd love a lot more lactic tartness.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Pours slightly hazy with a pink lemonade hue; the head builds to two fingers with a faint mauve aspect; spotty lacing

Smell: Oak and cherry tones waft, with a funky, tart aspect that is supplemented by a hint of sweet fruit

Taste: Somewhat tart, from the outset, with the cherry emerging and adding a hint of sweetness; the oak and funk quickly bring a dry element; a woodsy, stemmy tart finish wraps things up

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation; moderate pucker

Overall: Not sure why the brewery calls this a tripel as I don't taste any elements of that style; it is clearly more of a kriek and a darn good one, at that
Thanks, cdubnbird, for the opportunity

The oak barrel aging adde a dimension to this fruit beer that grounds the sweet and tart cherries. Gives body more depth and tang for the style. Sweet and acidic on the finish. Pleasant, especially in the summertime outside at the cafe

Vibrant, ruby red body, near clear, thinly veiled by a rose coloured head that fades to a rim within the minute. Intriguing and exciting. Swirl it around a bunch and it picks right back up, so the carbonation is there.
Very light aroma, unless I'm getting a cold. Berries, bubblegum, woodiness, funk.
Delicate and refined red apple, raspberry, cherry fruit flavour, lightly tart, complimented beautifully by a sense of Christmas spice - clove or nutmeg. In the finish an odd bitterness kicks in, difficult to identify, but reading the ingredients it must be the herbs. It's unique, somewhat medicinal. Super dry finish, long, with a variety of curious flavours lingering. Medium body and carbonation. Soft on the tongue, with a sense of being powdery.

Lot's of weird things going on with this, it's certainly a different experience - and an enjoyable one. Great mix of fruit, tart, funk, woodiness, herbal notes and distinct mouthfeel. Try it if you find it, on it's own, and contemplate it's definition. Just plain interesting.

As much as I am no fan of sour beer, I had a good feeling about this one and it didn't disappoint. Tart it is, yes, but not to a putrid extent. With a 25% cherry inclusion (there is no other fruit within), it obviously dominates, but there is enough herbs to balance things to an accepted degree. I think I would drink this again!

Bottle poorer in tulip glass.

Some alcohol, wood and a lot of fruits in the nose.

The taste is very fruity.
It has an abv of 8.5, but easy drinkable.
