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. 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

Alengrin (3875) - BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2014 Artisanal, entirely traditional ’oude kriek’, to that extent that only the original Schaarbeekse cherries are used, like in the old days; this explains the price, but this is worth every penny. Firm, crackling, light pinkish head, deep cherry red colour. Very complex and extremely well-balanced aroma with massive fresh fruit, taste equally fruity, genuine, sour, complex, funky, ’sherryish’, utterly refreshing and ending in a long, sourish dry, satisfying finish. Easily the best kriek I ever had the pleasure to taste, a true masterpiece.

Bottle 0.75l. Pours deep red with minimal head. Aroma is intense cherry, funky, oak. Taste is full of deep cherry flavour balanced by sourness and hints of oak. Perfect beer.

ChinoSkillzian (189) - CA to VA, California, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Sampled many times, finally rating. Pours a deep garnet color with minimal head. Deep rich aromas of cherry pie filling, baking spice, oak, citric acid, hints of cranberry. Dry, sour palate with thorough flavors of cherry preserve, cherry skin, and cherry pie filling. Additionally there is oak, lemon, and wet hay/funk notes. Very solid.

Tomy63 (198) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - JUN 22, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2014 Belle couleur rubis foncé, un peu trouble, peu de mousse. Nez très expressif, sur la cerise aigre, le fruit rouge, un côté métallique, un léger boisé un peu fumé. Bouche vive, "tendue" par une grosse acidité, sèche, assez légère, carbonatation assez basse, beaucoup de cerise, un léger côté aigre mais beaucoup de fraîcheur, boisé léger. Seule la finale pourrait être un peu plus longue et encore plus acide. Mais une Kriek de haut niveau.

Barnoloid (277) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Deep, deep cherry lambic with a strong tart nose and taste. The mouthfeel is surprisingly smooth, with an assured acidity.

Muuu! I i miei sensi muggiscono risvegliati dal potere acido di questa birra divina. Note intense di ciliegie che avvolgono il palato piroettano voluttuosamente su uno sfondo acido ammorbidito dall’invecchiamento, incredibilimente elegante e bilanciato. Chiudo gli occhi in estasi e continuo a muggire. Muuu!
