Bottle: Poured a dark reddish color lambic with a rather large pink foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of sour cherries is dominant but with more acidic notes then anticipated. Taste is a closer to actual lambic then I would have expected and a lot more closer tot he real thing then their regular brand. Oak, sour cherries with no syrup and tart and acidic notes makes a refreshing drink. Well done but unfortunately not available oversea.

2006 bottle

A: Cloudy pink/ruby with a decent head when poured that leaves a nice lingering ring around the top of the brew. Some sediment

S: Nice fruity/tart cherry notes. Wood tannins and plenty of barnyard funk to go around. A little bit of mustiness too

T: Very very tasty. The cherries provide a very nice balanced sweetness and tartness making me pucker a little bit. Nice wood notes that in addition to the brett funk bring out very nice earth tones

M: Slightly vineagary but very flavorful with each sip. A fare amount of dryness is present as well

D:Split the 375 and I think that I could have enjoyed the whole thing myself

From 01/14/12 notes. Shared by ygtbsm94; thanks Brad! 2007 vintage.

a - Pours a deep ruby red color with one finger of off white head and moderate to high carbonation evident.

s - Smells of sour cherries, vinegar, funk, oak, spices, yeast, and fruity malts. Nice and sour, and a ton of cherries.

t - Tastes of very sour cherries and tart dark fruits, more funk than the nose, vinegar, earthy notes, spices, Belgian yeast, fruity malts, and oak. Awesome taste.

m - Light to medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Crisp, and easy to drink.

o - Overall I thought this was an awesome kriek. We drank this right before the Drie Fonteinen Schaerbeekse kriek and I thought this went toe to toe with it. Tons of tart cherries, especially in the taste, I'd love to have this one again.

Had this last night. Thanks to Brad for the chance to try this obscurity. 375mL bottle shared with my homie Nick. From notes, I believe this to be a 2005 bottle.

Pours a stunning cherry red hue with some light peeking through at the edges. Big bubbly whitish pink head fades to big bubbles and a foam ring throughout the session.

At cooler temps (40s), the funk was very restrained - cat piss mostly. Some month old cheese that you left in the back of the fridge by accident starting to stink up as it warmed. Nice cherry juiciness and gentle oak impact. Some earth as well.

Really nice authentic cherry in the taste, none of that manufactured shit. Moderate tartness and tannin presence leading to a drying finish. Funkiness described in the aroma was present throughout but made itself most known as it warmed in the aroma and mid-palate.

Low to medium bodied with a subdued carbonation despite the initially vibrant appearance. A little bit of a slippery mouthfeel helps some more of the mustiness come through. Very drinkable and a very pleasant lambic. Thanks for the chance, Brad! I definitely wouldn't have tracked this one down otherwise.

375 mL green glass bottle, corked. This is the less sweet, more tart/sour version of their Kriek.

This kriek poured a clear, deep ruby red color with pink foam that settled. There was good carbonation in the glass. The smell was tart/sour cherries, though not an overpowering aroma. The taste was very tart cherry with a light sourness in the finish. There was a mild maltiness beneath. The mouthfeel was dry and tart, almost sour, with crisp, dry cherry fruitiness throughout. The body was medium with strong carbonation; the carbonation was sharp on the tongue initially during the sip. This was a very nice, dry Kriek lambic; more sour than sweet but not overpowering. Quite addictive, and I wish I had brought some home with me from Antwerp.

Bottle received as an extra in a trade with a generous RB guy.

Appearnace: Pours a fairly clear medicinal ludens cough drop red with a small pinkish crown that displays moderate retention and medium lace.

Smell: Very nice medley of cherries, lemon from the brett, horseblanket, potting soil, and cobwebs.

Taste: Same as the nose but the lemon from the brett takes center stage overshadowing the supporting actors.

Mouthfeel: Very crisp without seeming over carbonated.

Overall: Better than I expected but I can tell this bottle came from a cellar and has some age on it which is heightening the brett / lemon character.
