Spectacular: pink flamingo head over deep rich burgundy beer. Deep, deep red wine nose, almost utterly vinous, and to make the picture complete a waft of olive oil heated garlic. Sour, vinous, and again accomplished marriage beer/wine. Tannines, some farmyard but still very clean, dark eating grapes. Bit 'sticky' in the finish, acidthinning and low carbonation. Aftertaste reverts to gorgeous winey flavours. One of the best ever. Yount take care, here's a worthy opponent. Thanks to Don for sharing!

Bottled 26/10/17. Gorgeous clear light copper, fine white head. Smell is deeply funky, dusty barn attic. Light, with soft carbonation. Taste is lightly sour, dry, minerals. Good bit of barnyardy funk, some dried apple, and quite citrussy. Lovely blend.

Lotno. 07/10/2015 (I'm assuming this is the bottling date, so exactly 6 years minus 1 day in the bottle. Pours a light hazy orange colour and a big, dense off white head with fairly good retention. Aromas's: sour, funky in a pleasant way, wood, fruity. Nice fruity sourness retronasal, woody as well. Flavour is above moderate sour with light woody bitterness. Light medium bodied. Firm carbonation. Long finish, jammy, sourish. Held up very nice.

11 September 2021. At Summer Belgian Beer Geek Gathering. Many thanks, Klaas & Liesbeth, cheers to the whole crew!

Season 19/20, No° 75. Hazy red, thin, pink head. Aroma of sour cherry, sherry, balsamico, wood, red grape. Taste has very sour cherry, plum, grape & grape peel, vinegar & lemon acid. Very acidic finish with woody tannins & sherry. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Nice Kriek with a 'twist' but no peat for me.

Season 19/20, No° 62. Hazy orange, thin, off-white head. Aroma of hay, horseblanket, leather, plum, green apple, oak. Taste has very sour plum, peach & gooseberry, funky hay, vinegar & lemon acid. Old grassy hops in the tart finish along wood, funky fruit & leather. Medium body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation. Missed out on a the peat somewhat, apart from a more leathery aspect. Mainly a sharp Geuze.

Hazy yellow, no head. Aroma of nectarine, peach, plum, apricot, gooseberry, white grape. Taste has sour peach, nectarine, plum, some apple, sweetish notes too over sourdough-like maltiness, bit lactic, lemon-acidic. Tart finish, end-of-stonefruit aspect next to lemon & grape skins. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Ridiculous. Very elegant.
