3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruby red colour, not much head. Cherries and wood in aroma. Dry and sour cherries in the flavour along with a big earthyness and some vinegar also mixed in. Pleasant, but lacks something.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 mL bottle. Pours dark, deep red with big pink head. The aroma is sour and fruity, lots of cherries, a little bit of souring wood. The flavor is tart and musty. The cherries are there, but not to the same extent as the nose. Some funk floats around, with something that for some reason reminds me of driftwood. It finishes dry, but has a nice mild sour cherry aftertaste. It has quite a bit of fruity maltiness, but the sweetness is cut by the acidity. Pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark ruby red. Quite sweet and acidic. Dry finish. A solid but not an exceptional kriek.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Murky, brownish-red ale with a mid-sized, frothy, pink-tinted head. Excellent retention. Acidic, funky nose with bushels of sweet & sour cherries, horse blanket and mild barnyard. Sour flavor with distinguished cherries and lots of fruity, pungent goodness. Medium-bodied with an astingent mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Mid-length, sour, lightly bitter finish. Kudos to boboski for providing this one!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 37.5ml (2004) Bottle @ Quinns. Deep ruby red with a pinkish head. Lovely sour cherry nose with pastry hints - simply, it smells like cherry pie. Earthy cherry taste with hints of yeast. Quite toned down and not tart at all until the last pour - somehow the sediment gives it a sour note. Salty finish. Medium body.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
37.5 cl bottle. Orangey red colour, pinkish, stable head. Highly complex lambiek nose with cheese notes as well as cherries. Sour cherries, some yoghurt, lemony lambiek as well as cheese before a moderately dry finish. Fizzy. A very complex and enjoyable kriek- miles ahead of the other, commercialised Boon Kriek.

375 ml bottle. slightly pink head was huge and fuzzy. Left decent lacing too. sweet and sour cherry aromas, but mostly sour. Flavors were all sour and tart. some bitterness on the finish too. Still lots of cherry. Not bad

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fizzy head on a cloudy, pinkish-brown beer. Smells very yeasty, sour, woody and musty with a bit of unripe wild cherry. Very woody, dry, somewhat metallic flavour. A pronounced used Band-Aid quality to it, which although isnít pleasant, seems traditional. The driest lambic Iíve ever tried (Boon-dry?). Short, highly sour finish and a full body. Very interesting, exotic, and not sure itís what Iím into...but Iím glad I tried it.
