Cork 2014. 750 mL. Pour is dark ruby red, clear, with a pinkish head. Nose has a little paper, seltzery brett, some mushroom notes, with a moderate fleshy cherry. Flavor is quite simple, very little lambic, hints of leathery brett, strong cherry flesh, cherry juice, moderate carb, smooth feel and drinkable body, with a lightly sour finish.

willisread (612) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 24, 2015
375 ml bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a Duvel tulip. Slightly hazy red with a big pink head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving behind a nice layer of pink film throughout. Big aromas of vinegar, sour cherry & plum. Very fine carbonation with a dry mouthfeel. The vinegar becomes more pronounced as it warms up. Tart on the palate. An absolute classic!

Hoprider (144) - DENMARK - MAR 8, 2015
Deep purplish red. Small white frothy head. Nose has lots of fresh citrussy cherries. A bit of funk and brett but most of all notes of intensly sour cherries. The taste is rich with sour fruit and brett. The mouthfeel is light and oily with lively carbonation. Aftertaste has a dry cherry fruity quality. Very good kriek.

hohops (476) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2015
Appearance is a ruby, cherry red, a two finger light pink fuzzy head which quickly settles down. Aroma- sour cherries, raspberry, strawberry hints, barnyard, musty, sweat, some ammonia. Aroma- huge dry sourness, lip-puckering, big cherry sweetness, juicy fruit, tart raspberries, vinous hints, sweet and almost sickly finish. Intense stuff.
