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!

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 (1546) - 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.

AmEricanbrew (6737) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 19, 2008
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

1996 bottle @ Dr. Bill’s tasting. Yum Yum. Poured a fairly hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Leather and tart cherry fruit makes up the aroma. Tart and lightly acidic flavor. Cherry and fruity notes. Some mild leather. Light body. Good stuff.

LilBeerDoctor (3772) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2008
2006 bottle. Poured a beautiful deep ruby red, very little head. Smelled sour, fruity, some barnyard funk. Taste of very sour cherries. I enjoyed it a lot but it is hard to drink!

This is a really nice sour lambic - not so sweet like other krieks I’ve had. This one would be most enjoyed on a warm summer day.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2010 Vintage 06’ Pours red with no head and no lacing. Interesting funky cherry aroma. High acidic mouth-feel, that really make you pucker up. Nice cherry flavor. I liked this, lots of acidity and leather

Goodgrief (2000) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Oct. 2006 - Pour was red, with no head even with a vigorous pour. Sweet cherry and vinegar aroma. Flavor was sour cherries, vinegar and horse blanket. Some other flavors and mustiness swirl about, but I don’t know what they were. Mouthfeel was rich and smooth. Well made brew.
