Hand pump/draft @ 3 Fonteinen. what to say, easily the best kriek I have ever had. pours dark red going on bordeaux, thin reddish head. aroma filled with cherries, very fresh had a nice farm/field like aroma with light tartness. taste, lots and lots of cherries, lactic - acidic mouthfeel with notes of wood. Overall palate kept enough sweetness not to make this a tart bomb. Amazingly natural, no feel of any additional fake extracts and sweeteners that seem to plague so many fruit beers.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - JUN 24, 2009
Tap @ W.O.S.F. Deep red with no head. Aromas of vanilla, marzipan, cherries, cinnamon, wood, sweet and cookie-like. Flavour is tart and dry with fresh cherry notes.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2009
Purple-red colour. Big, full fruitiness. Voluptuous. Fruity, with pitty bitterness and an orchard fruit note. Fresh and refreshing, again with pit-like bitterness to go with the tart.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2009
WSF. Deep purple and flat. Nice floral aroma has orchids in it. Really nice with oodles of unique cherry character. Flat and smooth. Super powerful cherries in this, one of the best of the kriekenlambiks and possibly one of my favorite of all the lambiks because I love how it is just packed with cherries.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2010 On draught at the restaurant. Royal red with specks. Huge pink head. Wonderful sour cherry flavour. 3.9. On tap at the tasting room courtesy of Armand and his wife, shared with Arne, Bastien, Cameron. Better body, more oak, more character. Delicious!

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2008
Draught @ WSF 2008. Dark burgundy with no head. Sour aroma with natural cherries. Sour cherries, wood and barnyard notes in the flavor. Ends sour.

DSG (6352) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 1, 2008
(3/10/08) On tap at Drie Fonteinen restaurant in Beersel. Deep red, almost opaque, with medium pink head. Aroma of cherries, a bit medicinal with hints of funk. Flavor is sourish with some medicinal notes, cherries, some citrus and some sweetness as well. Light to medium body. Quite good but definitely not great.

jercraigs (8073) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2010 2010-08-02. Hazy dark ruby red with a small off white head. 3+ Sharply sour at first, fruity second wave offers solace, but remains fairly sour. Sweet cherry notes ever so briefly, tart cherry resumes quickly thereafter. Sour finish, but not a lot in the aftertaste surprisingly. 7+ Aroma is surprisingly mild, very light funky musty notes, modest sour cherry. 7+ Average palate suits it nicely. 3+ Quite nice. Notes inexplicably end with "Oh f**k off!" for reasons I don’t recall, but likely relate somehow to the choice to blend this with the De Molen shortly after writing this. Alcohol was involved. 7+/4/8/3/15+ - 3.8 2008 Vintage, FONEFAN Masters Division Celebration, The White Horse, Parsons Green, London

2008-03-07. Dark ruby red body with a large foamy pink head. Sweet cherry aroma is a tad simplistic, light musty notes. Flavour similarly starts with a strong dose of sweet cherries, and a very lightly funky sourness that slowly builds as it moves into the finish and aftertaste. (7+) Average palate. Pleasant. 7/3/7/3/15 - 3.5
On tap at 3 Fonteinen, Beersel

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2007
Weekend of spontaneous fermentation 07’.

Pours a pretty deep red with no head. Light redskin aroma, shows quite a bit of sweetness, fruity candy like. Flavours are not sour at all, a lot of grapeskin and chewy cherries. Vineous, sour finish. Very interesting to try, pretty simple but pleasing all the same.
