3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.375l bottle. Vintage 2014. Hazy bright red body, huge pink head that disappears quickly. Aroma of balsamic vinegar, sour cherry, lemon zest with some earthy notes. Taste of lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, cherries and huge amount of funkiness with a slight amount of hop bitterness. Quite complex beer. I would even say it’s weird but in a good way.

3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014 bottle Very astringent strong aroma. Old yeast and damp. Reminded of stinky cheese in that it smells like hell, but tastes quite nice. Immediate bite and a vinegar-like bitterness. Not a lot of cherries, though they are present a bit under the classic gueze flavor. Lemon rind, lambic tart, sour cherry. Not a fruity beer. Funky and well worth a try, but certainly not for the everyday. Thanks for sharing @kapusil!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a taster showing very cloudy pink with translucent rims.
The nose shows a lot of brett with a lot of sour cherry notes in between.
The palate is light bodied and well carbonated. Flavors of light oak, sour cherries, and the distinctive bretty tart notes. The finish shows the same tart notes and throughout the linger.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2015 bottle. Aroma old socks, basementy... unfortunately. I do not get much else. Charming red colour. Taste is very very sour, coating and puckering whole mouth. Some basementy flavour, socks, rather light cherry. I suspect this gets much better after some ageing.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A split bottle 375 I think. Cherries in aroma, not too powerful as the funky yeast came through as well, which made it great. Some oakiness more cherries and fairly dry finish.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
De loin une des meilleurs kriek que j’ai bue, une très belle robe et une belle mousse, un nez tout en élégance, très pur et une bouche droite et nette dans le style de la maison

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.375 l corked and capped bottle from P&M Getränke, bottled on 14/5/2014. Clear, deep red with a huge, frothy, quickly diminishing, pinkish white head. Slightly funky, sourish-fruity and vinous aroma of sour cherries, redcurrant, raspberries, oak and leather. Slightly funky, sourish-fruity taste of sour cherries, redcurrant, raspberries, oak and leather, followed by a long, heavily sour and slightly vinous finish. Thin to medium body, effervescent and astringent mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Very sour and oaky kriek, almost nothing sweetish in it. Not as complex and sophisticated as expected but quite intense and, of course, very refreshing.
