Pours a hazy red with a white rim on top that leaves some lacing. Nose is of cherries and light funk, pretty nice. Taste is dry and loaded with (really) tart cherries. This is just too acidic for me to enjoy in large quantities, quite a shame since everything is so good! Body was light to medium and carbonation medium. Overall a really good oude kriek, I just don’t appreciate them as ultra lactic as everyone else. :(

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2015 Older vintage (2004) if not mistaking. Pours hazy ruby red with a light purple hue, nice thin head. Left it aerate for about 10 minutes as initial sour punch is quite high. Once settled the aroma is but fantastic: the sweetest cherry and almond aromas intertwine lovely, some pinot noir touches and only a hint of madeira. Punchy tartness and sourness with quite some tannins but all ends very foresty fruity, quite an explosion actually

Smells like a sour. Low but fizzy carbonation. Tastes like a sour with a bit of cherry kick to it. Aftertaste is 15 seconds and the same. Very sour, but very easy to drink too.

Brite redfunk aroma with tons of cherries. Awesome nose kept on emulating. Flavor of extremely tart cherries, slight lemon and thick rich dry fruit end flavor. All flavors did so well together, very very slight carbonation, so easy and nice to drink A++++

I thought this was the only kriek he had out for the longest time, since I was always able to find it. Red pour. Small pinkish head that falls quick and leaves some minute traces of lacing. Sour aroma of cherries and funk. Taste is tart with some cherry flavors. Some funky notes, but softy and subdued. Could drink it daily if my stomach would allow.

C&C 750 mL bottle, bottle date of 5/4/2004, sent to me by Papsoe a few years ago. Thanks! Shared with some friends of mine, 6/16/14. Pours a hazy salmon color with a thin white head that sticks around a while. Aroma of pepper, funk, horseblanket, mold, wood, dry cherries. The taste is tart jammy cherries, pepper, funk, moldy books, lemon, olive, leather. Medium bodied, low carbonation, slight lingering spice. Has held up well over the last decade. Exceptional beer.

750ml 2011 vintage at Akkurat with Taylor, Kimberly, and Stefan. Pours dark ruby red, fresh cheer juice, hint of vinegar. Tast is cherries, some tanic chalk notes, subtle sourness that is well crafted with cherries, a slight sweetness that melds with the fruit notes, but still tastes perfectly dry for an oude Lambic. Really like it, but not that complex.

Bottleshare thanks to Homer. Pours a ruby red, no head. Smells of cherry and tart. Taste is sweet, sour, cherry. Cherry is mild, almost a tad watered down. Decently tasty.

Bottle share thanks to Homer321. Aroma is funky, sweet tart, cherry, fairly dry, sweet. Deep red, fairly hazy, no head. Sour, tart cherry, cherry skins, quite dry but still crisp and semisweet.

Bottle. Nose is a nice fruitiness initially. Light tartness in the nose. Pour is a drastic red with almost no head. Taste is immediately tart and acidic. Very one dimensional and flat initially. Kind of opens up but seems still less than impressed
