Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2006 This is a great kriek. Great complexity and balance. Not artificial at all. Very natural and "clean". I really enjoyed this.

schuimkroaat (413) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2005 75 cl bottle, bottled on 14th May 2004. The cork just flew away with a loud bang when the bottle was opened... Relatively light red, rich but short-lived light pink foam. The smell is dry with considerable amounts of fruit and (acetic) acid. Metal and woody dryness are present in the flavour, which also clearly reveals fruit. Very sour on the palate with an unassertive aftertaste that is a mixture of hop and cherries. Did I drink it a bit too cold?

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2004
Bottled apr.5, 2004. Red color, persistent pinkish head. Aroma has cherries, cherry pits, some dust, lemon and fresh cheese. Prickly mouth feel, with a dry out effect. Certainly not an outspoken cherry flavor. Itís there, nothing more. Complex, but is waiting to be discovered, like a young girl unaware of het beauty. A cheesy character, especially in the aftertaste. Still lacks a bit of depth, but that wil come with ageing.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - NOV 3, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2005 Bottle @ Plan B, Cph. Nose of cherries, sourness, tartness, marcipan. Lovely deep red body with a medium pinkish head. Sour and cheesy flavor, tart cherries. Good stuff.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2004
Bottled at GBBF 2004, courtesy of Duff - thanks. Iím not going to eulogise over it as much as Duff does., nor remain as unmoved as SilkTork. Itís a good Kriek from one of the premier Lambic producers but, as usual, I prefer the straight geuze to the fruit versions. Thereís certainly an authentic manure aroma, with noticeable cherry fruit. The flavour has a lot of woody dryness. Quite easy drinking for a trad lambic. Overall, pretty good, but I wasnít blown away.

   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 10/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 20/20
duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2004
Bottle. This is the real deal. My favourite fruit lambic to date. I still have the taste in my mouth, even after 3 weeks since trying it. This is sour as usual, but more balanced than most. Subtle juicy, cherry sweetness, i can taste some fleshy cherry in here, but its not sweet, very dry. Of course theirs the standard earthy cheesy barnyardy aromas, flavours, but this just seemed to have something else, but iím really not sure what it was. This beer is so juicy, puckering, but not overly so, like so many lambic beers can be. Really amazing. Perfect mouthfeel, just the right dose of refreshing sourness.

Sampled at the RBESP 2004
Lactic nose. Dark red, low pink head. Nice beries, a hint barn. Good dryness, refreshing.

rickgordon (3843) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2004
Bottled. Hazy, pale pink colour. Cherry stone and marzipan nose. Woody, sourish flavour with an acidic sourness. Baccy dry finish!
