reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2010 Draught @ WSF. Blood red with no head. Faint aroma of cherries and hay, a tad medicinal. Tastes much like biting into a black cherry, strong and slightly bitter. Good but I prefer the Oude Kriek (6,5,8,3,17)
Re-rate:
Fresh from the barrel @ 3 Font, poured by the man himself. Deep red with a thin ring of short lived bubbles clinging to the outside of the glass. Nose was soooo cherry but Armand explained this was made from Polish cherries and if they had been Scharbeekse it would have been 10 times more intense. Flavor was simply cherries in a glass with a little wood and lambic funk. Nothing over the top, neither too acidic nor bland, just clean and refreshing. Heaven in a glass...

Jerre (2702) - Waregem, BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2007
On tap @ Bab festival. Hazy deep red in colour, very little pinkish head. Aroma fruity (cherry). Medium body. Taste cherry, little sourness, wonderfull.

drewbeerme (3879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2007
on cask @ Brussels 9th Belgian Beer weekend. pours ruby with big bright pink head, never seen a head this pink! i really didn’t get much of a nose, mostly cherry pits. subtle funk to it. flavor isn’t very sour or tart, a sorta flabby cherry flavor that almost seems artifical. this isn’t very sour, tart, or funky. mouth feel a tad watery, very low acidity. a good kriek but not up to 3 Fonteinen standards.

jonas (5692) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2007
Purple and red in colour, big pink head. Light sweetish berry aroma, a hint grain. Nutty flavorbase, citric notes, less sour than the De Cam Kriekenlambik I had before. Mellow mouthfeel, dry in the back of the throat.

Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation 07. Deep ruby, slightly cloudy. Nose is raspberries, rosewater & lemon candy. Quite intriguing. Flavor is tart cherries & raspberries, lemon, wheat & yeast. A bit of earth in the strongly red berry finish.

Spontanious weekend 07. There was a problem with this beer in that pauline decided to drink it for me and then become almost sick as she was hungover and the last thing she would want is a stomach fool of acid, therefore no notes and only a score. I do recall it being very nice all the same.
