corby112 (2744) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Pours a bright ruby red color with golden copper edges and a 1.5 finger, pinkish-white head that slowly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Some spotty lacing left behind. Musty, funky aroma with strong acetic acid and sour acidity along with oak tannins, lactic funk, juicy sour cherries and subtle toasted oak. Some vanilla bean and red wine character as well along with heavy barnyard funk and horseblanket. The fruit presence stands out as it warms giving off hints of cherry juice, fleshy skins and earthy pits. Full body with very dry and acidic sourness countered by sweet, fleshy cherry, lactic funk, musty bugs and barrel. Dry toasted oak along with vinous red wine notes, notably dark grape, sour cherry, current, strawberry and other dark fruits. This is countered by acetic sourness, lactic funk, musty bugs and dry oak. Decent amount of lingering acetic vinegar in the bone dry finish that leaves me drooling for more. Complex yet very well balanced. One of the better American attempts at duplicating a lambic flavor profile.

Bottle: The aroma consists of cherries, baby diapers, funk, and lemon. It pours a cloudy dull orange with a small white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with moderate sweet cherry and a touch of funk. The finish has mild lemon, oak, and a touch of vanilla. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

77ships (6195) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2015
Thanks! to Koen. 750 ml. bottle sampled @ ZZT XIII. Reddish amber, little head. Nose is quite acidic, puckering, light nail polish, vinegar, harsh, a bit thin & fizzy. Taste is fizzy puckering vinegar, very basic acidity, sour cherry, lemon acidity, lightly lactic. Very fizzy & puckering. Basic, simple & fun enough. Not on par with a good lambiek & far simpler. Still wondering whether these are spontaneously fermented or what?

Martinus (4285) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2015
Warm hazy amber golden colour, white head. Aroma of cherries, sour notes, yoghurt and krieken. Sour flavour, sickly, cherries, tart. Finish cherry and sickly. Pretty decent American Kriek.
(from 75cL bottle @ ZZT XII, ’Getting Joes’d to it’ Oirschot. Thanks for sharing, Koen!)

mcberko (10585) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is quite funky and fruity, with sweet and sour cherries, and barnyard funk. Flavour is quite funky, with tart cherries, some acetic notes, and light vinegar. Not like an authentic lambic, but it’s complex and wonderfully constructed. Excellent stuff.

Ferris (8967) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2015
Bottle - That very typical euro petroleum nose and only a hint of cherry. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Syrupy cherry and Gueuze notes. Smells better than it tastes, fruit too muted.
