In order to obtain a beer like no other, we have been adding whole sour cherries to our lambic for generations.

Our meeting with American importer Charles Finkel in the 1970s revolutionised the fruit beer segment. Charles convinced us to export our old kriek to the United States by boat. What we had not thought of is that the movement of the waves would reactivate the fermentation process and cause the corks to pop during the trip. It was like something out of The Adventures of Tintin. To prevent that from happening, we therefore developed an alternative production method for our kriek. We use fresh, not from concentrate, unsweetened cherry filtrate which we blend with lambic that is at least one year old before fermenting & macerating for up to 3 days and pasteurising the whole batch. So the corks don't pop.

Bottle. Color: Clear red, pink head. Aroma: Cherry syrup. Taste: Sweet cherries, cherry syrup. Mwdium sweet. No tartness at all. Nothing at all, compared with a real Oude Kriek. Bleh.

Red color, pink head. Strong sweetened cherry juice aroma. You can smell it metres from the glass. Lots of cherry juice in the very sweet flavor. Some lemon sourness to compensate. It's impossible to taste the lambic that is used. Still, the beer tastes OK, like cherry lemonade can taste well on a hot day.
