oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2007
Draught. Hazy ruby red colour, not much head. Aroma is redwineish vinegar along with cherries. Flavour is also pretty much the same along with some wood and berries. A very pleasant thing.

omhper (18961) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2004
Sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. (5.0%)
Clear deep red, small pink head. Balsamic cherry aroma. Acidic and dense, with notes of cobweb and vinegar. Less fruity than Drie Fonteinen and Girardin’s kriekemlambics, and I miss the extra dimension they have. But then unblended lambics change more from barrel to barrel than any other type of beer I know of...

Dedollewaitor (13390) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2009
Tap @ WSF. Pours dark bloody red with no head. Sweet nose of candy and cherries. Sweet and quite thin. Some slight tart nose. Fine balance between sweet and sour. Nice.

MiP (13047) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2008
Cask at ZBF08 as Boon kriekenlambik met schaerbeekse krieken. Nicely sour cherry aroma, not as fat as some. Good sourness to aroma. Beautiful red colour, almost clear. Very small bubbly head. The flavour is nicely acidic, some cherry but owerpowered by the tartness, which is good of course.

Theis (12758) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2008
Draught at ZBF 2008 (400g schaarbeekse kriek pr. L). Unclear dark red - no head. Lots of kriek / cherry, light sweetness, sharp tarness, light rubber, badering, light sulfor. Dry finish.

harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2008
From the barrel at ZBF 08. Hazy red/pink with hints of copper, lasting pink head. More funky farmyard than cherry on the aroma. Really quite funky. Real cowpats. Cherries do come through, but really just too funky for me. I know lots of other people really rated this highly, but i just didn’t get it.

Oakes (11812) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2009
Bloody colour. Vinegary nose with cherry pits. Some wood on the palate but also prune, apricot and other indeterminate fruits. Starts tart but moves to a more alkali finish with vinegar.
