Oud Beersel Oude Kriek 2018 is created by adding whole sour cherries (400g/L) to blend of young and old Oud Beersel Lambic -- providing intense cherry flavor and ruby red color while sparking another fermentation as it matures in old barrels. Oude Kriek has no added sugar and contains no artificial flavorings or preservatives. Cellared, it will evolve in complexity over time -- this 2018 vintage is labeled "Best before: 15 OCT 2038"!

Pouring sparkling ruby red with a fine, rose pink head, the aroma is of sour cherries, almonds, vanilla, and some acetic funkiness. The taste features dark cherry, red wine vinegar, toasted brioche, almond, and spice. With Champagne-like carbonation and medium body, it's clean and refreshing. Rated 99/100 on Ratebeer.com.

Food Pairings

A great accompaniment to goat cheeses, roast turkey or game, breaded fish, and fruit cobbler.

Oud Beersel Brewery, located near Brussels in the town of Beersel, is one of the last remaining authentic lambic breweries in Belgium. Founded in 1882 by Henri Vandervelden, the small brewery remained family-owned for four generations until 2002, when financial woes forced operations to cease, and the brewery all but closed.

In 2005, fearing the brewery's unique artisanal lambics could be lost forever, friends Gert Christiaens & Roland De Bus took a chance and reopened the business and, with the help of Frank Boon, owner of the Boon Brewery (another lambic producer), relaunched the Oud Beersel line to great success.

Today, Oud Beersel Brewery offers a number of award winning ales & lambics for distribution worldwide.
