KyotoLefty (6465) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle at Gollem in Antwerp. Dark, deep crimson verging on purple. Huge cherry nose, dust, some leather, plus cherry skins and pips. big cherry flavor with leather and yogurt. Not much sourness, just nice fruit. No complexity whatsoever. A tasty beer, but nowhere near as good as their regular kriek. Kind of a joke at this high price. Just made to sell expensively to beer geeks?

Mörkt rubinröd. Riktigt härlig doft och härliga kirschbär. Balanserad frisk syra och som gör skäl för namnet intense. Kan bli kul med några års lagring

blklab2007 (1967) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle through recent trade opened with little action on the cork. Pour has a plumb purple color and a ring of pink head on the glass. Aroma has loads of earthy fresh cherry but no big sweetness, musty yeast, light sourness, leather, cherry skins, wet oak, and cherry pits. Amazing how the cherry steals the show but does not do it through brut force. Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation is not very strong but it is there. Flavor again has a bold fruit side, such a nice sour side, cherry skin bitterness, and it does work it out to the dry side with a nice lingering pucker. There are a lot of the qualities I love in other beers from this brewer and it shares the toungue smacking sour side mixed into such well done wood. I am not generally a fan of cherry but once again I am incredibly impressed!

Countbeer (4429) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle: Served in a old Belle Vue Gueuze glass: Thanks to Tinus for this bottle: Beautiful red pour. Beautiful deep dark red colored beer with a lively beautiful dark pink red colored foamy head. Disappears right away and leaves a beautiful headless beer. Wow! The aroma is a mix of cherries, wood, leather, some yeast, some shoebox, some wood, not much else but the cherries do the work, every way! :-) Flavour is a dry mix of cherries, sour, wood, wild yeast, sour cherry candy, some herbs, yoghurt, dry sour, some herbs and something light light malty. Aftertaste is dry, sour, lot of cherries, some yoghurt tones, tiny hint of something woody and some crispy cherry drenched herbs. Low to medium carbo, medium to full body, creamy light dry mouthfeel and a light creamy texture. Delicious beer! Well done! Wish I had liter bags of this stuff.

SlackerMads (1613) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle. Clear deep red with a medium sized quickly dissipating pink head. Cherry and lots of almonds in the nose. Same goes for the nose, this is like cherry sauce only sour and not as sticky. Light/medium sweet and sour with a nice light dry and acid finish, a bit like sour green apples. Light/medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation. Man, I really like cherries.
