madsberg (10136) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2010
Draught. Red coloured. Unclear. Dense reddish head. Berries, sweetness, light citrus and some wood/barral. Flaovur as well full of berries and dry fruits. Citric and sourish with a light marzipany touch. Medium bodied. Grapy and sourish end. Dont think the bourgogne barral does a lot for the beer.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 30, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2010 On draught at Churchkey. Dark purple, large tan head. Aroma of fresh dark cherries and wood. Taste has citrus, sour grapefruit and cherry. Amazing complexity and character. Top notch! 4.3 750 ml bottle at DC local tasting. No head or lacing on this version. Same wonderful aroma. Less fruit, more acidic. 3.6

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2010
Bottle from bierkompass.de. Reddish brown color. Cherry juice and a hint of oak in the aroma. Sourish vinous flavor with vanilla, cherry juice, marzipan. Low on carbon. Very pleasant, tastes a bit like a very old sweetened kriek lambic.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 23, 2011
Ausgewogen säuerlicher Antrunk mit angenehmen aber milden Kirschnoten. Im Mittelteil fruchtiger, vollmundig, die dezente Säure macht das Bier außerordentlich süffig. Die Säure wird dann intensiver, das Bier gleichzeitig trocken. Dennoch ausgewogen und angenehm würzig wobei die kirschige Säure immer im Vordegrund steht. Geringe Süße zum Schluß. Gelungen! 9/11/11/11/11/11

GT2 (8184) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 30, 2010
750mL courtesy of Travlr. Poured a deep pink/purple with thin bubbles abounding- no real head though. Aroma is outstanding: rich cherry pie, baked sweet cherries, sour cherries. Amazing kriek nose. Taste is a little thin, tart berries, not really full sour, pretty highly carbonated on the palate. Refreshing, not too intense. Could use more time in the barrel to develop a full sourness.

2009 Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a hazed ruby red body with a tan head. Aromas are big and vinous with fruit, berries, tartness, wine, caramel, leather and strawberries. Flavors are much less tart, but very vinous with caramel, berries and wine. Lively bubbles.

JorisPPattyn (7796) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 11, 2010
Deep garnet red with a small pink head, gone in seconds. Intense fruitnose (cherry,...) with some old wood ànd alcohol. Superb nose, inviting as none, reminiscent of the real Zottegemse Kriek from Crombé. Sourish-fruity, refreshing with "old cherries", wood, pinch of saffron and redcurrant. Again totally resembling the old Zottegemse Kriek - with just a slightly more watery mouthfeel. Lipsmacking acidity, superbly refreshing. EXCELLENT. Glenn, Davy, Mark, take note (<small> pretty please! </small>). Do a remake of this with a good dose of extra malts in the Kerasus, then barrel-age in the same way. As Struise recreated the original Kapittel Prior with Aardmonnik, so will you have resurrected the Zottegemse Kriek, of fond memory.

Fin (7257) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2010
Had this at Pre ZBF 5th March 2010 Pours wonderful red colour with good clarity. This is quite a lovely beer in terms of aroma (sweeter than expected) though sour cherries are leaping up the nostrils. In the mouth this is sour, woody and with clear wine enhanced characteristics, dry at the end, little puckering in the mouth, good tangy stuff. A8 A3 F7 P4 Ov15 3.7

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Draft at 2011 Max’s Belgian Fest at 2008 Oak Kerasus: Pours a transparent dark copper mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a semi-sweet toasty caramel and light fruity tart nose with some vinous oak. Starts with average fullness and light carbonation with some oily texture and light caramel and fruity tartness. Finishes drier and oaky with some lingering vinous flavor.
