jbeatty (1210) - New York, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle, 2010 vintage, 08/31/2012. Red pour, deep ruby highlights, thin head burns away quickly. Rich cherry aroma with nice tartness, barnyard and musty oak. Taste sharp with tart cherry, minerals, earthy barnyard. Smooth, slick body. Very nice, though perhaps I prefer Lou Pepe Kriek to this one.

jkwood04 (4811) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 9, 2015
750ml bottle (2010) in a tulip. Pours deep pink with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of sourness, strong cherries, a good amount of oak, some light funk, light malts, and some more fruitiness. Flavor the same with a great blend of the strong cherries and sourness and oak and funk. Average texture. A great beer.

Svesse (6967) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2015
(Bottle) Clear red colour with frothy, pinkish white head. Fruity, sourish nose with red fruit, cherries, almonds, citrus, aromas of barnyard and stable. Fruity, tart taste with notes of sour cherries, red fruit, almonds, pink grapefruit, sour grapes, cellar, a touch of rhubarb and a fresh, dry tart finish with a slight tannin sourness. Medium body, bone dry. Very fresh and tasty with a lovely sourness. The kriek against which all others are measured. Lovely stuff!

Bottle, shared at Rose Red. Pours a clear dark pinkish beer with a medium sized, light pink head. Aroma of cherries, Brett, red fruits and a typical 3 Fonteinen touch. Flavor is very tarty, a lot of fruits, bit of wood and it has a very dry mouthfeel and finish. Nice stuff.

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.
