Vanberg & DeWulf LambickX Oude Kriek

What the brewers say

“This stunning ruby-colored lambic has a wonderful aroma of almonds, macaroon, and cherry stones. It is dry, with an elegant fruit palate. Lightly sparkling to still.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Medium cherry note that is thick and bold with a slight sweetness. Sweet and tart cherry character is very present in the nose with some floral, earthy, tea-like notes.”

Flavor: “Moderate cherry note with very little sweetness and a hint of spice. The beer has a nice drying character after the start with some subtle tartness that’s mild but cleansing. Moderate carbonation is well-balanced with the tartness, and the linger is not too dry or too sweet. The acidic tartness helps to finish the beer out with a nice carbonation that leaves the beer a little warming.”

Overall: “Moderate tart cherry notes with a good balance of carbonation. As it warms, a nice herbal note emerges. Very juicy, sweet cherry character with dry finish. The flavors worked well together and blended well. Not very bold for a sour but works well and enjoyable—an approachable sour.”
