Thanks, Reg for sharing! Beautiful cherry red appearance. Wonderful bouquet of funky barnyard and sour cherries. Low carbonation. Sweet and tart flavors of cherries with the perfect balance of sourness for me. Wine like qualities. Mild astringent finish. Very easy for me to drink, low acidity, nothing too strong.

ChinoSkillzian (152) - The Hills, 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 (176) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - JUN 22, 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.

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!

bellco33 (241) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Poured from bottle into sample glass (Kriek-off): Pours deep purple with a decent pink head. This reminds me a bit of grape juice with some cherries in it. A bit metallic, but certainly not poison like Ernesto states. A bit medicinal at the back end. Really not bad at all.

Pour is ruby red - nose is tart cherries, a touch herbal. Taste is mouth puckering cherries, herbs, yogurt, really tart without being overly acidic. Creamier mouthfeel than typical for the style.

Salmoniform (454) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Poured from 750 to glass. Pink hue with light pink fizzy head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is acetic, white pepper, cherry. Mouthfeel is good with light body and high carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a spicy astringentness in the following coupled with sour. CO2 sharpness throughout the finish. Overall this was an interesting brew. Not as cherry fruit as some Kreiks that I’ve had...more of a cherry pit taste.

Bottle, 2011 vintage. Opened this on Easter to celebrate. Pours a reddish pink color with plenty of nice carbonation. Tastes tart but not puckery, great cherry flavor with just enough of that signature 3 Fonteinen funk. Excellent.
