Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2016
Heavy aroma of cherries, funk, slight stonefruit. Flavor is very well balanced. It has lots of cherry, sour stonefruit and candy. Slight Red grapes on the finish. This is simply put: Amazing.

popery (1994) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 17, 2016
2014 cork date. The beer is a deep, brilliant red. Nearly opaque in my little taster glass. Fizzy pink head that briefly builds up only to bubble away to nothing. The aroma is cherries and funk. The cherries are sour but not overwhelmingly so. Oak is mild but adds a lot to the overall character. It has the deep, earthy lambic funk that you simply don’t get in all but a handful of non-lambic sours. It’s like an elegant cherry jam or pie. Jammy fruit with a wonderful funk depth. Taste is medium sour. Cherry flavor coats the mouth. There’s very light fruit sweetness with a lot of sour cherry, but it’s still easy to drink and never gets harsh exactly. More oak in the finish. Pretty dry overall particularly at the end. Medium pucker. The carbonation is effervescent and lively. Some body from the fruitiness but it’s light on the palate. Wonderful.

Franckg (1186) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
Embouteillée le 03/02/2015, bue après 1 an. Robe rouge claire surmonté d’un gigantesque col de mousse rose qui disparaît rapidement au son d’un crépitement aucunement subtil. Ne survit qu’un petit voile à la mince dentelle. Arômes soutenu de lambics acides atténué par des effluves de cerises bien mures. Légèrement boisé, c’est un nez agréable et bien équilibré. En bouche, plus acide (citron, pomme verte), on croirait boire leur gueuze jusqu’à ce qu’un petit goût de cerises vienne nous rapeller que c’est bien une kriek. Heureusement, les cerises s’installent longuement et forment avec le chêne une finale plus fruitée, amère et sèche. Texture onctueuse et corps moyen. Se boit bien mais selon mes souvenirs, ma dernière kriek était plus fruitée et sucrée.

at the brewery: dark pink-red, small pink-white head, little smell of cherry, not much smell, little sourness, nice fruity, quite sour finish, little bitter, nice cherry-taste because not overpowering, fizzy with oily mouthfeel

adasko (1886) - Poznan, POLAND - FEB 2, 2016
I tasted it two times. First super fresh in the brewery I just had a sip. Second time from the tap in Chez Moeder Lambic Saint-Gilles and it feels like a two different beers. First was fresh and crisp and super sour. Second much sweeter, much more flat and dull. But still - it’s a great beer. Awesome sour flavour with cherry note, must try.

Sour aroma with sweet cherries. Totally red with pink head. The taste is all sour cherries. Medium body, slick texture & lively carbonation.

ciocanelu (1329) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 13, 2016
Hazy dark pink color with pinkish head. Aroma has very nice cherry and lambic funk notes. Perfectly balanced, not too offensive on the funky farmhouse notes. Taste starts intensely fruity, with medium tartness and rustic farmhouse note on the finish. Body is medium, quite smooth and well carbonated. Dry aftertaste. This is definitely my favorite kriek and on of the best lambic beers out there.

1/12/16 750ml bottle Old Notes-Pours a darker amber with no head. Aroma of tartness, cherries, and funkiness. Taste of the same. This light bodied lambic is darn right tasty.
