I actullay do not like so mant fruit or lambic beers. But this is one of thebest sourness i have ever get frm a beer like this. Cloudy, red clour, with cherry taste on first. Well not so much head but very nice sourness afterwards. Nice beer.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2013 Bottle 2012 edition: Ruby red in color not much head. Nose of tart cherries and sawdust... Taste is a nice tart lambic... border line sour. Tart cherries, light sawdust. Simple but good... Medium body, good amount of carbonation. Overall: I intially I had this beer in 2008 and didnt really enjoy it.... I am glad my tastebuds have changed to appreciate this style.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2008 37.5 cl 2007 bottle. Pours a red colour with a thin pink head. Cherry stones, almond and some funky sweaty horse. Flavour is very sour - like eating lemon. Some funky barnyard notes as well. The cherry flavour is very subtle - too subtle in my opinion.

Bottiglia da 37cl comprata al Duca ma bevuta a casa :) l’aroma č fantastico, non molto diverso da quello della Lou Pepé Kriek, ma nel sapore la differenza si sente eccome; e siccome voglio dire una bestemmia aggiungo che questa ha un retrogusto smaccatamente piů dolce, non sciropposo né stucchevole per caritŕ, ma scompeggia un po’ il resto. Ottima comunque.

Brix (652) - DENMARK - FEB 28, 2008
Tasted 2008-02-28. Bottled in 2005. Pours unclear orange going on pink with white head. Aroma: Funky barnyardish with an earthy touch to it. Flavours: Acidic - very acidic. Extremely dry - brings out gallons of mouth water. Very tasty, if you’re into that kinda stuff!

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2008
Sampled at the brewery after the tour: the beer poured a hazy red with a pink head, but not as intense of a red as the Lou Pépé, The head built up beautifully and went to the top of the glass and slowly made its way down back to the beer. Aroma is of the brewery, deep musty, woody, and bretty notes lay on top of a firm sourness refined somewhat by the presence of Cherries. The mouth feel was soft from the natural carbonation and medium-light. Very good.

Rusty (1545) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - FEB 19, 2008
2006 bottle. Pours a dark red with little head. Smells sour, funky and you can barely make out the aroma of the cherries. Taste is more sour, vinegar, with less cherry than I’d hoped for. I’ll go as far to say that this is a very interesting Kriek, but I probably wouldn’t try it again.

Cork states bottled in 2003. Clear amber color with a thin whispy head. Strong oak, earthy barnyard funkaroma with a whiff of cherries. Medium body. A very strong, tongue numbing aspirin sourness pretty much overpowers the decent tart fruit and pale cracker malt flavors here. Can we say sour bomb??357
