sunevdj (3271) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2006
Pitcher at Københavnske øldage 2006. Pours a clear red. Rather sour but not overwhelming. Very fruity, lots of cherries. No carbonation. Aromas of resin and a hint of dirt.

mds (2240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2006
Draught. Blood red-brown with a medium pink head. The aroma is quite wheaty with liberal fruity funk. Flavour is soft and wheat-driven and there is lots of cherry juiciness among brett - moreso in every aspect than the Girardin. Practically no sweetness - juicy, funky, wheaty, and super dry. Very good. What a great lineup of beers I had sampled at the restaurant in Beersel, on May 11, 2006.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2006
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm 29 Apr, 6,0% abv) Colour is deep red, no head. Nose is acidic with dark cherries and nutty hints of almonds. Taste is acidic and harsh with a fruity cherry character. Very dry but with lots of cherry character. Very well balanced and actually lovely.

anders37 (17537) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2006
Draught at Drie Fonteinen. Pours a lovely dark red colour with a pinksih head. Cherry aroma with hints of cherry pits and bitter almonds. Big cherry flavor with lots of tastes from the cherry pits and hints of bitter almonds. Long nice cherry aftertaste. Very nice.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2006
Draught (ZBF06): Bloody red with a glowing pink head. Almond, cherries and marzipan in the nose. Lovely sweet cherries balanced with tart rotting grapes. Juicy, wonderful stuff that I could drink all day long (though probably get heartburn!).

madsberg (10459) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2006
Draught: Deep red coloured. Hazy. Reddish huge dense head. Distinct cherry sweetness in the aroma. Is quite marcipany. Flavour is cherrysweet with a light sourness to balance. Is quite full bodied, and a bit more sweet than the normally very sour lambics from 3 F. Is sweet and marcipanny in the end. Is quite refreshing. Good one.

rauchbier (3634) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2006
Tap, ZBF 2005. Cherry red, purple-pink head and low condition. Soft sweet cherry skin aromas with some low almond notes, quite soft in the mouth with the cherry skin and stone notes just dominating the gentle lambic flavours. Cherry and almond lingering in the finish.

bierkoning (10563) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2005
Small glass, restaurant Drie Fonteinen Beersel. Cherry liquor aroma. Sweet and flat. Full cherry flavor with cherry pits and bitter almonds. Full bodied. A bit alcoholic. The essence of cherries packed in a glass. Absolutely great beer! Wished I could have more, but I had to drive.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2005
Hand pump at 3 Fonteinen (restaurant) along with a dish of rabbit in geuze!!
A true beauty - unclear deep red with a frothy pink head. Very nice and full sweet cherry and creamy aroma. Dry woody cherry flavor with a sour grapefruit note. More sourness than other kriekenlambics I have had. Sharp, dry, penetrating, outstanding!
