Bottle shared. Lovely massive Schaarbeekse krieken, not much else to say really. Lovely.
0,75l bottle at home. deep red color, small pink head. smells of marzipan, sour cherries, cinnamon, spices, lovely smell. full body, soft carbonation. tastes of sour cherries, marzipan, bit nutty, very subtle funk, bit grassy, cinnamon, spices. finishes lightly sour with notes of cinnamon, sour cherries and some marzipan notes. lovely, not super complex, but very easy to drink, very subtle sourness.
Inky purple color. Flat no head. Intense cherry pits, cherry pie, funky cobwebs in the nose. The nose is unreal. The palate isn’t as tart but it’s intense fruit character. Amazing nose and good palate. Really amazing
Bottle, blend 89 from 18/19. Deep red with a pale pink head that lasts a little while before fading to the rim. Mellow cherry aroma with jammy and almost kirsch-like intense ones, with wheaty crackers and oak behind. Not complex, regal. A bit more from the cherries upon a sip -booming sweet/ jammy flavours, subdued weedy/ harsh stone notes, marzipan, focused sourness. A little old lemon, crackers and oak, but really about the cherries. A fair way off dry at the end. Another really lovely one.
Bottle sample @ Billie's 2021, shared with Brewver BE crew.
Couleur est pure bourgogne, pourpre, col fin rosé.
Arôme est fruité, intense sur la cerise, effet frais, arbuste et verger fraîchement ramassées.
Palais est, comme le nom l'indique, intense dans l'apport de la cerise de Schaerbeek - c’est fruité, généreux, effet un peu râpeux, noyaux de cerise, chair de cerise avec un excellent effet de barrique.

Clear deep ruby red beer, small creamy pink head, stable, non adhesive. Aroma: oh my, lovely, lots of cherries, very good, very intense! MF: lively carbon, medium body. Taste: lovely, lots of almonds, very intense Schaarbeekse cherry flavour, nice acidity, oxidized, lovely! Aftertaste: dry, oxidized, more almonds, super fruity, juicy, very nice!
Sampled OBD 2021 . Pours darker, unclear red. Small, nearly no white head. Scent is full, intensely sour cherry. Mild age, works perfectly with the beer though. Taste is full, intense schaarbeekse. lovely !
