4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wygląd: Rubinowo, czerwone. Obfita, różowa piana, średnio trwała, drobnopęcherzykowa.
Aromat: Wiśnie, stajnia, końska derka. Dość kwaśny, dziki i owocowy aromat. Intensywny i lekko drażniący w dobrym tego słowa znaczeniu, taki jakiego można byłoby się po lambiku spodziewać.
Odczucie: Wytrawne, musujące, wysokie wysycenie.
Smak: Wiśniowe, kwaśne z dziką nutą końskiej derki, pestki wiśni. Kwasność intensywna ale krótka. Lekko medyczny posmak, coś jak wibowit w proszku. Lekka pestkowa goryczka.
Całość: Świetny Kriek.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark Bordeaux ruby red with delightful pink/rose foam. The smell is definitely cherry but not as sour as I hoped for. The taste is sour on the tip of the tongue and a beautiful excessive carbonation in the beginning. A bit too sweet for my taste, but still an awesome beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Harvest 2013. Dark ruby-purple color with big pink head. Looks awesome! Typical Oude Kriek aroma, with a nice funk. Taste is soft sour, stone, kriek. Foamy in the mouth, dry finish. Heavy as well, from the ABV. Very high carbonation, which is a pity because it keeps you from tasting the details. Fortunately, the carbonation is gone quickly. A great Kriek nonetheless. The ABV gives a nice feeling of a little sweetness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 2, 2015 Dark bit cloudy red with brown hues and a light pink frothy head.
On the nose aromas of cherry, earthy, woody, red grapes, black currant, almonds/marzipan hints of brett develops. Light fruity sweet with a well balanced acidity/sourness and a hint of bitterness with subtle notes of amaretto and balsamico.
Medium fruity body; thin, bit lively and sticky texture and a long finish.
Nice lasting aftertaste of cherry.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, vintage 2011, enjoyed January 2015. Pours clear dark red, with a big, but quickly receding, pink creamy head. Nice wooden aroma, with red wine barrels, leather and lots of nice cherries and forest berries, as well as farmhouse funk and lactic acid. Medium body, with average carbonation. Flavour is musty and tart rather than sour, with fruits, grapes and tannins, as well as some funky wood and farmyard through the finish.

Bottled; Ale House Chelmsford! I feel harsh with the appearance as there is not much concentration on that it’s all about taste and taste is HUGE. Palate is super-clean. A slight puckering and acid levels but still really incredibly tasty .This vintage is 2011. The cherries are awesome. The barnyard texture is sublime, SO MUCH DAMN FUNK. It’s a JB’s record in a glass!!!! WOWZER! Utterly excellent. Drinkability is very high too! A touch rough on the palate but generally speaking this is world-class and I love my local for stocking it! BOOOOOOOOOOOM!
