Bottle. Cherry cola and a thin pink head. Aroma is tart, cherries and earthy funk. Taste follows suit and adds some wood. Medium dry palate. Good flavor and nuance.

Another perfect beer! Sweet and sour battle it out on your taste buds, and it still ends in a draw. Cherries come through in both aroma and taste, tartness leaves your palate tingling. Excellent!

markextrae (1037) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2014
2012 bottle at home. For my own little bbf afterparty. Cork popped without any notice of carbonation. Poured flat as a red wine. In a deep dark red colour.with some pink lacing. Big fresh cherries aroma, amarena, acid, still some sourness in the back. But the sweetness of the cherries have the leading role in this one.

Nice cherry smell and taste. I think this one is better than Lou Pepe Kriek and 3F Schaerbeekse Kriek.

DutchDrebus (4071) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle shared with Angela. Deep ruby colour with a small pink head. Smells mint, cherry, cherrypeel, sourish, astringent. Tastes sour, mint, cherry, cherry peel, slightly dusty, wood. Thin to medium body, soft carbo. Decent, but lets not act like this is jofel.

slowrunner77 (3811) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 4, 2014
"Well... Color as advertised, a beautiful intense ruby red. Immediate pungent aroma of bright tart cherries and an underlying stinky cheese. Flavor is more than adequately sour, very fruity and intense as well, with the cherry/funk balance done to near perfection. Dam smooth too, carbonation just right, and the abv (which happens to be 5.0) is irrelevant. This could have been 3% or 9% and the flavor would have made it so you didn’t even notice. Super friggin expensive, but a real treat. Up there with Cantillon Lou Pepe in the ranks of the best krieks."

MrSquash (45) - Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Pours a deep Ruby color with a minimal rose colored head and low retention. Smells like a tart cherry cordial. Tastes of a moderately sweet dark cherry flavor with a lingering sourness.

Leighton (11123) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle shared in London during the CBC 2nd birthday. Pours deep red-purple with a creamy pink head. The nose has dank grapes, funk, cherries, berries. Light to medium sweet flavor with ripe and funky fruits, cherry, some skin. Light to medium bodied with average+ carbonation. Lots of ripe, drying berries to finish, good assertive tartness. Great one.

burg326 (3703) - Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Poured a deep red color with aromas of cherries, light funk, some oak, and more cherries. Flavors were cherry juice, not overly tart or sour, just enough, tasty and great, need to find more of this.
