MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Bottle. Clear ruby red with a small, pink head. Aroma was funky horse blanket with tart cherries. Tasted tangy fruit and mostly sour. Very nice. Funk forever.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Tasted 9/10/06 as part of Cantillon tour. Poured from a75cL bottle into a Cantillon snifter. Bright pink in color, not the usual reddish tone. Aroma is almost sweet? Almost no carbonation, forget about foam. Cherry flavor almost dominates flavor profile? What gives Jan? "This bottle is only 2 months old, the sweetness will fade in few months" Ah, pity me for getting fresh lambic. IIf given the choice, Iíll take it with at least a couple more months in the bottle.

Christian (11493) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2012 2003 bottle, rated May 2007. Red with a pink head. Earthy and vinegar aroma, with leather and cherry. Really acidic flavour, with as much wood as there is cherry. Excellent kriek, but I think it may be better a little fresher.

1 year old bottle, March 2012: Cherry aroma with some unmistakenly Cantillon-ish wood-like funk. Surprisingly sweetish fruity flavour (I donít think I have had a Cantillon this fresh) with lots of real cherry flavour. If you like the house character, get the geueze, but if you like the cherry, get this one young!

CBF07 sample from bottle at the RB table. Pours hazy pink with a white lacing. Aroma is sour and fruity. Flavour is very bitter and dry. Finish is dry berries.

drewbeerme (3891) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2008 375ml bottle, no date. poured into my new lindemans flute i got for $1 at a thrift store. pours clear red with beige head. nose is sour, funky, sour cherries, lots of oak. oh a real nice nose. flavor is very oaky, bret, subtle sour and tart cherries. medium acidity. not very fruity but my ideal of a kriek. palate isnít very long or flavorful but the sour notes stick for a while. a palate adjuster for sure. others may want more cherries but iím not much of a kriek man so this does the job as a funky sour lambic for sure while being very drinkable. i really donít get why this is rated this low, a cantillon kriek, come on!

MPA (860) - Amager (form. NÝrrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 26, 2007
Bottle. Red copper with white head. Aroma of berries, apples and a little touch of cellar. Flavour of sweet berries and a fruity sourness with a touch of apples and citrus fruits.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAY 25, 2007
12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquor - Pours a slightly hazy red color with a thin bubbly head that didnít last long. Aroma is sour whatever! Typical Lambic. Flavor is very sour and bitter fruit (berry). Light body. I canít believe I payed almost $8 for this beer. Do these beers get better with age? Maybe a generation or two?

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2009 2001 bottle courtesy boboski. Light scarlet color with a wispy white head. Mildly sweet funk aroma that isnít particularly strong. Feathery palate. Bludgeoning tartness, followed by some residual sweetness. Quite aggressive. Itís taking me way longer to appreciate the fruit lambics vs gueuzes.

mazfln (116) - Florianůpolis, BRAZIL - MAY 21, 2007
Red translucent appearance, small white head. It is of course a very different kind of beer, but I really liked it. Very sour, less sweet than I expected. It was very nice with some chocolate. I would love to have it more often, and am very curious to try it without fruit in it.

Pours a clear red with a small pink head.the aroma knocks me over, sourness with vinegar notes.Flavor was funky , sour cherries.it will take time for me to really enjoy this.It did mellow out by the time I finished but was still sour dominant.
