manuelMTL (206) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
From 375 ml bottle in tulip. Pour is light red with almost no head. Great cherry nose with lots of funk and tartness. Taste is dry pungent sourness with a fresh cherry flavor and a long lingering light bitterness. Great funk and tart flavors as all Cantillon beers. This is a perfect fruity sour beer.

Une des meilleurs kriek ? Plus mousseuse que les autres relativement claire. on sent bien les levures cantillon avec une belle rondeur.

Nice deep red, pink head. Aroma is sour cherries, yeast, horseblanket. Taste is a nice firm sour cherriness, that the yeast really compliments

750 bottle from Belgian e-shop Didn’t note Vintage Light red color, a bit cloudy with off white head with pink hints. Amazing intense cherry aroma, a bit almond. Tart and fruity, nice cherry complex flavor. Fruity dry and sour finish. Amazing kriek, I wish I had another bottle.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Whoah, that’s a real Kriek! If you want to smell, taste what a fruity beer should be, you need to try this one. No sugar at all, a amazing cherry nose and palate. What I find impressive is that you can actually taste the cherry stones, it reminded me of my mother’s cherry pie!

perfetta lambic. la felicità fatta birra! la perfezione, l origine di tutto, la magia!!! solo alla vista te ne innamori...ROSA SCURO, color lampone, con una schiuma bassa ma frizzante e poco persistente (lo stile lo prevede, chissene frega della schiuma!!!) al naso si entra in un trip olfattivo che ti porta nelle campagne belghe dove l odore di ciliege si mischia a quello di terra, umido, odore di cavallo, humus, odori acri dei prati all alba, limoni....una cosa fantastica! In bocca si concretizza la magia, l atto finale di questo capolavoro comincia con il sapore acido dei cedri acerbi accompagnata da una carbonatazione che stuzzica la lingua e ti invoglia a bere un altro sorso immediatamente prima che ti fermi il finale e la persistenza delle ciliege in perfetta maturazione! Difficile da descrivere (e tutto sommato tutt altro che facile anche da bere) ma se cominci ad amarla non vorresti nient altro che bere la kriek!!!!

I have had this countless times over the years. Recently, had a relatively fresh bottle in a blind tasting. It was my hit of the evening at 4.1. I liked more than the LP Kriek or 3F Intense Red. Wasn’t as aggressive sourness as I remember or expected. Blind tastings are the best.
