On tap at Jan’s Masters Division Celebration, 2nd August 2010. Bright red. The perfect balance of sourness and fruitiness. The ideal expression of the style.

[3243-20100802] Tap. Lovely cherry aroma of lambic yeast and tart cherry skins. Hazy, dark red body with a quick foamy white head. Super fruity cherry flavour has tons of thick sour lambic yeast and a long fruity aftertaste. Medium body. Wonderfully drinkable and a beautiful start to a night of celebratory drinking!

Tap at ACBF 2011. Hazy dark pink pour. Aroma is very fruity with loads of cherries. Flavor is sweet, round and slightly sour. Very well balanced. Very refreshing. Nice.

On draft at 3 Fonteinen. I enjoyed one of these while chatting away with Armand on a rainy day. Anyhow, the beer is ruby red with a thick purplish, pink head. The aroma is cherry juice and hints of yeast. Much sweeter than a standard 3 Fonteinen kriek. Sugary sweet cherries, cherry pie, pie crust with hints of tartness in the finish. Lingering fruity sugars. A tasty beer for sure, but I much prefer the regular, more tart, krieks from this awesome brewery. Absolutely worth a try if you are fortunate enough to make the pilgrimage here.

jackl (5503) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2013
Draft @ 3F during TdG ’13. The pour’s hazy purple with a gorgeous, massive purple head. Very vivid, bright nose. Fruit orchard, bright sour cherries, pie filling, a bit of dirt and earth. The taste is earthy unwashed cherries. Lovely mild sourness. Just a hint of citric bitterness rounds the edges. Soft and so easy to drink. This is just a wonderful beverage. Fantastic.

Cask at the brewery. Perfect cherry nose, almonds, yogurt, some vanilla. Sweet cherry flavor, lemon, spices are also felt. Very tangy, quite acidic. Cherry flavor is amazing, obviously brought out by the added sugar. Quite sour, lactic, great.

@ ACBF 2011. The aroma has fresh cherries, some horseblanket, some marzipan. Deep red coloured beer with no head. The taste is light sour, tart is very fruity and fresh. Smooth. Really a nice one.

On tap at 3 Fonteinen Restaurant, pours a dark pinkish ruby red with a large pink head. Aroma of dry potent cherries, classic 3F funk, and more cherries. Flavour brings out both sweet and sour cherries, so pure and potent, with a touch of funk buried underneath. The cherries completely coat the palate. Excellent stuff.

330 ml tap at 3Fonteinen restaurant. Pours deep red with purple hue and a pink head. Nose is intensely cherry, some almond, honey (added sugar) and vanilla (a tad of). Taste is sweet and sour with an exploding fruitiness; this is genuinely one of the best straight Krieks (not Oude Kriek) that I have ever had. Really like this; it drinks like water.
