2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
rather dissapointing... started out nice: indeed an intense red beer. aroma: sweet, very much cherry, hints of lambic present in background but nothing much. taste: sweet, not really cloying, but rather close.
this beer is not worth the extra cost (6 euro a bottle at the brewery) and I dare say that should it be the ’new’ Oude Kriek by De troch (or so) it would get burned. it is the most mediocre 3fonteinen lambic that I have ever tasted...

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

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
"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."

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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is transparent blood red with almost no head, a touch of dark purple foam on top. Nose has lots of cherry up front with a moderate amount of funk. It’s gets a bit leathery after the traditional earthy mushroomy funk with a bit of rubber band. Taste is stronger cherry, pitted ripe dark red cherry. The funk is lighter, a touch earthy and some rubber band through the back. Fairly sour finish with a light body and strong carbonation.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Flaska från Brill. Rödvinsfärgad vätska, lågt rosa skum som snart försvinner. Stor syrlig doft av moreller, geuze, lite hallon. Syrlig, frisk, stram, torr och massor av bär. lite annorlunda körsbärssmak än andra kriek, drar lite åt hallon, lätt kärnbeska i eftersmak med lätt touch av hallon. Riktigt god.
