Bottle at home. Deep ruby with small pink head. Lovely sweet and sour cherry, cherry pie, marzipan, light funk, wheat, dry cellar notes, oak. Almost medium sweet, light tart and bitter. Solid medium bodied with very low carbonation. Very tasty, lots of fruit and not so sour.

From cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Beautiful rich red/pinky purple colour with a massive pink frothy head of tiny bubbles which disappears slowly. Aroma is big cherries, bit of lavender slightly funkiness and a bit sweet too. Taste is slight cherry sourness initially and then mellowing into big fruitiness. Low carbonation but tingly on the tongue. Light bodied but very drinkable. This is a very special beer.

Small glass, restaurant Drie Fonteinen Beersel. Cherry liquor aroma. Sweet and flat. Full cherry flavor with cherry pits and bitter almonds. Full bodied. A bit alcoholic. The essence of cherries packed in a glass. Absolutely great beer! Wished I could have more, but I had to drive.

0.375 l bottle from 'Beyond Beer', bottled in May 2017, cellared for almost a year. Clear, deep ruby with a thin, slightly fluffy, slowly diminishing, pinkish white head. A little sweetish, sourish, fairly fruity and gently funky aroma of sour cherries, raspberries, bitter almond, oak and some horse blanket. Minimally sweet, moderately sour, rather fruity and slightly funky taste of lots of sour cherries, raspberry, oak, some bitter almond and a touch of horse blanket, followed by a short, gently tart, woody-dry and slightly funky finish. Thin to medium body, gently astringent and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Tasty!

Smooth macerated sour cherries, soft almonds, funk. Low carbonation and a softer mouthfeel compared to the Kriek. A beautiful beer! 4.4
