Received from @Bum4ever in NBS BIF #8. Reviewed 12/9/18. Thanks Josh!
“Bottled 19 April 2017” on back label. Cork pulls with a faint “POP” and no overflow. Stored at 42 degrees and served at 54 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Appearance – 4.5.
Body – Deep red, clear.
Head – Large (Maximum 6.2 cm, controlled enter pour), pink, medium density, fizzy, rapidly gone, leaving no ring, no cap, and no lacing.
Lacing – None.
First pour – Dark pink, clear. Second pour is cloudy as the sediment rises.
Aroma – 4 – Weak cherry, no expected sourness. About half-way through the glass, an oakiness makes itself known.
Flavor – 4.5 - Begins lightly sour with some cherry flavor, a bit of oak tannins. no alcohol (6 % ABV), no diacetyl.
Palate – 3.5 – Thin, watery, soft carbonation.
Impression and interpretation – 4.5 – Excellent! The best kriek, lambic, or kriek lambic I’ve had in years! Flavor, nose and appearance are near-perfection for this style of beer – the cherries can be detected as can the oak foeders. Is this the same Kriek Lambic I had in 2007? In those days the (marketing) qualifier “BIO” wasn’t attached to most Euro beers. Is this a “new” beer or merely a marketing relabeling of a previous product.

Memorable and sour as it warms. Cherries on the nose, sweet and sour

Had on tap at Seymour in Greenfield. The beer had a light red, slight pink maybe, color with a bright pink head that dissipated. Great mixture of cherries, raspberries, and strawberry aromas. Incredible taste: tart, sour, sweet dark fruit aftertaste. Very crisp carbonation with a light creaminess. Overall, incredible.

Pours red with a finger of pink foam that retains well. Aroma is cherry, with light cereal grains and wheat behind. Flavor profile is driven, controlled, and maintained by cherry, which has a light tartness to it. Beneath the cherries is wheat. It carries a light sourness. Mouth feel is medium in thickness, with a smooth feel that is only slightly more grainy than the base lambic. Overall, it's very focused and controlled on one thing (cherries), which other may consider one-dimensional. Regardless, it's well prepared and crafted and very enjoyable.

Reviewed from notes.

Genuinely one of my favourite sours ever and the 2018 has so much cherry up front! Despite its propensity for aging this beer having it immediately offers up a different beast. Tart cherry and a hint of residual sweetness. Moderate carb and sourness just delicious
