4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
75cl bottle at home, 1996 vintage. This bottle was corked, capped and very dusty. The cork was very long...so long that I lost the end of it into the beer. The pour produced a crystal clear bright ruby beer with still a huge amount of colour remaining (almost as much as a new bottle). The smell was fantastic! No oxidisation at all and I mean none!! It smelled of cinnemon, nutmeg, clove and cherry. Almost like a christmas spiced beer. Everyone that tried it said that they had never experienced a Kriek with such a christmas flavour. As we went down the bottle the sourness was more pronounced and the pours where becoming very murky. There was a huge amount of sediment in this bottle. This may well be the most gracefully aged beer Ive ever had. Everyone agreed that it could easily last another 10 years.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Resampled, 37,5 bottled 06/2013. Beautiful hazy ruby pour with quickly receding pinkish foam. Medium lively carbonation brims forth from the glass: a young yoghurt and cherry asperine tartness, sour cherries mixed in with yoghurt, in a bowl beneath a soil-stained cloth - not overly expressive. Straightforward cherry whey, lighter cherry pit bitter almond and a whiff of a smaller, once-cleaned barn, before natural, citric lemonade takes over to quench the thirst, more faint 1,5% fat yoghurt in finish. - Quite a simple homely joy really, that has become the focus for many brett-bewildered analysts taking enthusiased notes from an over-sanitised vantage point, somewhere in der gedeuteten Welt.

It pours hazy violet with ruby highlights; the head is magenta and foamy. The aroma has notes of: red cherries, cough medicine, and lemon juice. The taste is heavy sour; there are notes of: lemon juice, funk, and lemon juice. The palate is full bodied and has medium carbonation, with a light astringency, and it has a medium finish. Overall, straight from the grim reaper ’ s cherry tree.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle, 1 year old. Pours a ruby red body with a medium to small pinkish head. Aroma has soft notes of cherry and some old dusty hay. Pleasantly tingly/tart mouthfeel. Taste has some unsweet cherries but what I get more is a flavour resembling cranberries! If somebody said it also contained cranberries I would believe them. Medium to low sweetness. Above medium tartness, grows drier in the finish. Refreshing and highly drinkable, but the complexity does not quite reach the levels of "3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze".
