draught @ the rake. not quite the lou pepe but i’d still have a bathtub full of this stuff. Luuuuvly! Quite sweet sour lactic acid nose, not biting. Deep hazy purple colour, no head. Exquisitly balanced flavour of sour lactic acid, sweet morellos and wood. Bathtup i said....

emacgee (4593) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2008
Had at Milltown. Poured a gorgeously bright ruby pink, just vivid. Thin fizzy pink head that doesn’t stick around. The aroma is sweet and dry, some cherry peel, spicy, bracingly acidic and tart. The flavor is spicy and tart, biting tartness and acidity, sweet, cherry, a little dry, acetic. Very tart and acidic. Light acronation.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 bottle courtesy of bhops. i must be out of my freakin mind to rate this a 4.4 based upon all the other ratings. this is only my 2nd kriek and this beer was awesome. red pour with a very light pink head. slight sour/acidic scent. a very tolerable sourness with a cherry finish. thanks again bhops for bringing this bottle over.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2008
(Draught) Pours hazy blood red. The aroma is of tart cherries, old oxidized, hops, cheese, horse blanket, basement and mold like yeast. Undertones of wood and wheat. The flavour is big time citric acid like alongside tones of tart cherries, wood and moldy yeast. The mouthfeel is heavily sour, tart and dry with a light sticky twist. Light to medium bodied.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 Draught at the Rover. Hazy ruby red with a thin pinkish white head. Frsh cherry aroma with some barnyard and wood. Way too sour as usual.

gueuzeisgod (113) - Graham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2008
375 ml bottle, very little carbonation. Smells of sour cherries, heavy horseblanket and barnyard (all of the classically iconic lambic aromas) Taste is powerfully acidic, reminds me of acerola vitamin c tablets, the cherry is there but plays a supporting role in this cast of flavors. Will clean any palate for the next course at dinner. The slightest bit of body disappears instantly and finishes out bone dry. Unmistakably Cantillon.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 16, 2008
From a bottle--Poured a bright ruby body, much like the Oud Beersel kriek. This beer was more sour and more sharp on the tongue. Very acidic, funk,y tart, and bright to the palate. Cherry sour power. Killer!
