Scopey (12511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2011
On tap at CP&K at Alvinne meet the brewer night. The nose is sour cherry, sweet strawberry, metal and nettles. The taste is tart cherry, granny smith apple, lemon sherbet, egg and farmyard. It’s really smooth, slightly astringent and has a long dry finish. Another top quality sour ale from Alvinne.

bierkoning (12403) - 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.

thewolf (12081) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Alvinne Beershop.
Pours an absolutely lovely, clear, deep ruby red. Small, rather fizzy, off-white pink head. Stays as a thin rim ’round the edges. Nice sweet fruity aroma, lots of oak, some mild red wine tannins, vanilla. High carbonation, light watery palate. Flavour is mildly dry, somewhat dull at first, then good tartness, fine oaky presence. There are grapes, little tannins, some good cherries. Light marzipan, some vanilla. Quite decent actually, compared to how much sweetness there is in the original version. Nice.

madsberg (11370) - 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.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, 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.

Fin (9596) - 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

JorisPPattyn (9474) - Ursel, 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.
