Ontape (224) - Valley Village, California, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle, cracked to celebrate Kershaw’s no-hitter! Dark red with a pink head. Big aromas: minerals, cinnamon, wood, cherry, funk. Taste is well-rounded and balanced, lively on the palate. Just a beautiful, elegant beer.

danlo (1087) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
750 ml bottle. Red colour, thin pink foam head and aroma of cherry, woody, funk, sour. Taste is dark cherries, tangy sour, grain, wood, lingering bitter and earthy barnyard. Slightly oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry sour finish. Very tasty, very drinkable.

Timvim (51) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle @ home 20140611. Bottled 2013. Pours opaque red with a minimal, quick disappearing head. Lively carbonation. Aroma of cherries, earth, funk, hay. Taste is cherries, oak, sour and tart, still a little sweetness that balances it perfectly. Awesome.

BLADT (507) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle pour. Reddish color, minimal head. Lots of wood on the nose, with some cherries. Super tart tasting throughout. Musty. Cork. Unrelenting, but hard to fault.

Very thin appearance. It betrays he strong sour and fruit notes. A bit too light , still, for my taste.

Amazing gueuze lambic, very complex and full of different tastes, so enjoyable, very sour, grains, cereals, wild fruity and flowery notes. Almonds and krieks of course! I prefer the gueuze

bruxellover (16) - Dilbeek, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2014
Right excellent! Solid A everything you want in Kriek. Very cherry aroma and flavor to match. Well done with sour base. Not too bubbly, poured red with descent earthy cellar, and somewhat sweet. I love this Kriek

UXO (142) - CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Pours a clear ruby red with and enthusiastic three finger pink head subsiding quickly to a persistent cap and moderate lacing. Nose is intensely cherry, sweet and sour, with a little barnyard funk and perhaps a hint of umami. Taste is even more intense, brilliantly sour cherry with perfectly balanced sweetness. Mouth feel is light and bubbly, tart and crisp, finishing dry. This is lovely. Although strong, the cherry flavour is neither artificial nor overly sweet. It’s mouth-puckeringly tart without being too aggressive, and the intensely dry finish invites the next sip. Pretty obvious this is a young bottle, and I’ll bet as it ages the bright fruit dims and mellows as the funk grows. I’d love to vertical a few years of this!
