3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 75c, bottled in 2005l (BBE 2030)
Clear deep red, firm small red head. Sour, berry-like aroma, not much kriek found in the nose. Very sour (sour milk!) flavor, kriek-palate which lacks sweetness totally. Earthy notes in the finish, juicy berries (red currant) in the aftertaste. Not my favourite kriek.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I agree that this one is hard to finish, and I even shared with several other people. Some commented that the flavor "grows on you," which I agree with, but I find some other Lambics more interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red amber coloured, small foamy layer; heavy acidic nose with a tinge of almonds and cherries, traces of horse blanket......;starts sour and fruity; dry,acidic flavour; long lasting, extremely dry and tart finish; not a beer for every day! If You drink this Kriek, be sure to have always fluorides in Your pocket; otherwise the Cantillon might crack up Your enamel........

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz, corked 2004. Hazy, red body with a fizzy, pinkish head. Smell is extremely sour. The flavor follows suit. Cherries are present, but vinegary sourness takes the forefront. Incredibly sour and dry. Hard to finish. I still can’t find the appeal in this style; it’s a nice novelty to me, but I could never drink this often.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(750ml bottle, cork dated 2003) Cloudy ruby red colour with a small fizzy layer. Aromatic aroma of sour cherries and bitter almonds with a strong acidic note and traces of horseblanket. Very acidic and dry flavour, almost astringent. Sour and slight fruity taste of sour cherries. Vinous and bone dry finish with an enormous tartness. Quite demanding for the drinker.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz Bottle, 2004 Vintage: Opened it up and let her breathe for about 15 minutes before pouring. Poured a cloudy deep ruby with a pinkish fully diminishing head. Nicely carbonated with bubbles sticking the the sides up and down the glass. Aroma was of mellow cherries which had hints of tart/sourness, bread and hay. Flavor was tart cherry with a sharp soda water mixed with sour cherry bite. Blander breadiness in the back of the mouth. Finishes with a dusty/musty flavor and hay. Puckering mouthfeel. Not my favorite style be any means, but an enjoyable beer with many likeable parts.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2006 (Bottle 37,5 cl) Beautiful, pale pinkish colour with a small, pinkish head. Pronounced cherry flavours, but they’re completely drowned by the extreme, vinegary sourness. Dry and quenching - but an extreme Kriek indeed. 100897

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 Bottle, vintage 1997: I liked the way this looked, clear red with a frothy head. The aroma was reminiscent of being downwind from a large zoo on a muggy summer day. Little kriek here, or in the sour, hay-like flavor, either. The dirty sour finish left me wondering "why?"
