Bright cherry scent similar to 3F Oude Kriek but a little on the artificial side. Ruby color with no head. Quick lactic sourness with a very dry finish that leads into a small bit of cherry flavor. Pretty one dimensional for a kriek. Very different from the oude gueuze.

Thank you, Nathan.

Clear cherry red with a thin, off-white head that falls off to a ring, this looks decent. The nose is rather yeasty and fruity with a chunky cherry character, mildly cherry pie-like without any real spice. Not much funk, if any, really, the lambic base isn't particularly strong here. The palate is fruity, chewy, mildly leathery, mildly salty with no real funk. Decent, this beer is moderately carbonated and quite drinkable.

A-Pours a dark, sticky-looking crimson. Head doesn't last long but while it was around it was pink in color.

S-The aroma has some high points but I can also tell it's going to be pretty sweet as well. A hint of tartness and even some cellary funk. Lots of cherry; both natural and artificial smelling.

T-Starts off a bit tart which is nice. Also has some funk. It's going well until the sweetness comes into play. It devolves into an artificially sweet, cherry cough syrup finish.

M-Feels sugary. Flavor lingers. No alcohol. Cloying. Would not want a whole bottle of this.

O-The nose was okay and the flavor started off nicely but it quickly changes into something too sweet and artificial.

A: Light ruby red body. Thinish pink head. Just a few wisps of lacing left behind.

S: Bright, sweet cherries. A touch of tartness. A tad artificial, but not exactly over the top medicinal.

T: Artificially sweet cherries are pretty much the only flavor going on here. Nothing in terms of farmhouse or musty notes. Again, its not too medicinal despite the artificial sweetness.

M: Smooth with a light tingly carbonation. The artificial sweetness is just a tad cloying but does not significantly impair the feel.

D: Not the worst lambic, but I just can't see myself seeking out krieks in this style. That said, I'm sure its suitable for some palates and it is a better alternative to the Boon Kriek.

Dark pink color with pink head. Aroma has lambic funk up-front with just a bit of fruit character. Taste starts sour and fruity with a sulfuric or metallic taste. Body is medium, carbonation too. Definitely a different, more tradtional, approach than the regular Mort Subite Kriek but it has some flaws that keep it back from entering the upper tier of fruit lambics.

Thanks to Brad for sharing this bottle. Served in a Dark Lord mini snifter.

Pours a nice deep red color with a thin white head and some light lacing. The nose carries a good dosing of cherries and some light funk. Mild lactic character there as well. Flavor is cherries and lactic acid. Good combination, but lacking in real depth. Crisp carbonation and a nice fruity finish. Dry. Pretty good, but not in the top echelon.

2006 dated Neck Label; Best By May 2012; Sampled January 2009
The beer pours into my 25cl tulip glass with a pink tinged, pale colored head. The beer is a deep red color that shows a brilliantly clear, bright red stained, gold color when held up to the light. The aroma has a nice, musty, moldy, wild mushroom and farmhouse cheese funkiness to it up front that is noticeable even as I pour this. A deeper inspection of the nose yields more of the same as well as a tart back note of cherries and aspirin. Brettanomyces definitely have left there signature in the aroma; there are also musky notes of dried sweat soaked blankets and some phenolic, almost plastic like notes here too.

Nicely sour with a big lactic acid presence. The finish has hints of tart cherry skin notes to it, a bit of tannic bite and a hint of cherry-flavored aspirin. In the middle the Brettanomyces kicks in at a level that is subtle compared to the nose, but still contributes a musty, earthy note that impinges on the oral-nasal cavity more than on the flavor. The cherry notes become a bit more noticeable as my palate gets used to the sourness, but it is never nearly as noticeable as its effect on the color of this beer. There is a nice backdrop though of fruity, cherry skin flavors that serve as a framework for most of the other flavors here. The fruitiness can at times provide a suggestion of sweetness that belies the dry, tart finish that grips this beer. The beer has a bit of tannic heft to it that keeps it from being thin, but the dry tart character keeps this pretty darn quaffable.

My second pour of this beer sees the cherry flavors becoming a bit more noticeable, in fact the cherry is coming into its own here. This is a nice example of a Kriek, it could use a bit more funkiness and some more fat cherry notes and then a bit more tartness, but then it would be a different beer. I am definitely enjoying this.

Bottle from the free table at Woodshop 5.0. Pours the color of guava juice, with a smattering of ecru carbonation. Aroma is acetic and lightly chlorinic with the expected sharp cherry character. Flavor is more ascorbic acidic with sour citrus than cherry, although there is a pitty cherry note. Dry woody finish with some astringency.
