Details

Cantillon Kriek is not artificially sweetened like all the other krieks you'll find on the shelf; authentic kriek is sour and very, very tart. This beer is not for beginners, but those in the know will agree with virtually every respected beer writer that this is the world-classic cherry lambic.

When seeking an authentic lambic, look no further than Cantillon. The Cantillon Kriek is a beautifully-blended lambic that has been brewed with cherries. A rich red colour tips you off to what should be expected: wonderful aromas of cherries, wheat, and oak. Bold flavours of cherry are complemented by a perfectly balanced tartness with maybe some hints of vanilla. Add in a medium dry finish and lots of carbonation, and you’ve got a world-class beer.

Strictly limited to two bottles per customer.

Best fruit lambic I've ever had

Aroma is massive sour and glace cherries, with a bit of sweetened cherry/raspberry yoghurt. Taste follows. Such a wonderful cherry experience, must be tried to be believed!

Sour, dry and yet also fruity, this world-renowned lambic balances everything out to deliver a refreshing and satisfying beer.
Everyone should try at least one sour beer, and this would be a good place to start.

Words cannot express these bizarre flavours until you try them for yourself ... get a bottle ... but be sure to sip it ... after a few dozen you'll realise there is no turning back
