On tap at the Moan & Dove.
A little bit more peachy than the bottled version, but definately has sanguine highlights. This one had a strawberry mousse on top, very nice indeed. I can’t get enough of that aroma of barnyard, leather, stale, spent grain and just plain sourness. I got apple last time, this one was more raspberry/cranberry. Excellent astringency, if I drink this too regularly my tongue will go inside-out. The rasp/cran really showed up in full force on the palate and in the dry aftertaste it left. Body was a little lighter than usual, but just as refreshing as ever.

Bottled. Hazy red colour, small bubbly white head. Bitterish cherry aroma. Bitter dry cherry flavour. Coarse feeling in throat while drinking this one. Nice one!

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Bottled in 2002. Hazy, bright ruby body with a white head that faded flat. Funky nose with mild acidity, mild fruit, and a touch of wine vinegar. Very dry and sour with a faded cherry character. Good sour fruit lambic, but may be better younger.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2005
Pours a brilliant, glowing red with a thin pink head. Very sharp barnyard aroma with some medicinal and herbal notes, a little cherry, a little alcohol, some green olive. Whoa. Crazy sour with a nail polish and light cherry flavor. Some ashiness. Is it possible that this bottle is off? Interesting though not immediately appealing.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2005
Incredible aroma of cherry and some lovely barnyard notes. Beautiful burgundy, very little activity, tiniest trace of pink head. Majestic cherry flavour, funky, wet blanket comes in as well. Marvelous mouthfeel, dry as a dessert, acidic as can be, tart too. Fantastic! Thank You for sharing mds!

A very strong tasting kriek, The sourness can be reduced by adding sugar yourself (as it is intended). A beutyfull appearance with a robust flavor. The palate is a bit monotome. Still one of the best traditional krieks on the market

TBone (11941) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2005
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.

valejo (81) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 12, 2005
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.

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........
