From the brewery. Pours as beautifully as a kriek will ever be. Not the bright cherry red of cough syrup - but the red/orange that matches the aroma. Surprised by the intensity of the cherry. I'm thinking the freshness may have something to do with this. The palate leaves just a touch of off-putting acidity that is not the same as the Geuze or lambic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kick butt perfect brew...giant cherry, and perfect tartness, Great synergy between sour funk and the fruit.

AlainG (1242) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2014
Rouge vif à la mousse effervescente qui s’évanouit dans un beau spectacle pour disparaître entièrement. Ça sent les levures sauvages, avec des parfums bien fruités, acidulés et rustiques. Assez surprenant tellement c’est acidulé en bouche. La cerise surette est à l’honneur, alors que des particularités épicées, boisées et d’environnement d’étable complètent le tableau. Le liquide laisse toujours une couche de plus sur la langue. C’est une bière qu’on croque. (Embouteillée le 25 octobre 2013 Lot C123) (1240-160914)

Rich cherry red. Smell begins with sour funk and light horse blanket, as warms becomes more cherry driven. Taste is likewise with cherry driving sour flavour as warms. Mild acidity. Sherberty. Lovely kriek as it warms up. Good beer.

Smell was sour cherry. Taste was intense cherry with a nice lactic sourness to it. I was surprised at how good it was.

GothGargoyle (1248) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
Hazy reddish pink with a massive pink head. Aroma is cherries, sour cherries, funk, other red fruits. Medium bodied, thick mouthfeel, nicely sweet and tart on the palate. Taste is tart cherry pie, lots of cherries, red currants.

ruigo (1124) - PORTUGAL - SEP 18, 2014
37.5cl bottle. Hazy deep red colour with a fluffy pinkish head. Tart, yeast, oak, and fruit in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste starts very tart but then turns into a complexity complicated to describe with fruitiness, vinegar and sour notes. Dry finish. Overall, a surprising beer that opens a new world of flavours.

Klimaet (155) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark hazy red with a slightly pink big frothy head. Aromas of some tart cherries, slightly soapy (in a good way though), some wood and stale, some sweet fruity notes in the back. Subtle vinegar. Taste is pretty tart cherries up front, fruity soapy notes once again, some stale, vinegar and sweet ripe cherries in the back.

Red with medium pink cap. Sour aroma. Sour cherry taste with some bitter notes afterwards.

Andy_ (693) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2014
375 ml bottle @ Nimes
Hazy rose red beer with pink head dissolving quickly with loud fizz. Aroma has vinegarish sourness, saddle leather, hay and cherries. Flavor is sour with some sugary sweetness and some cherry. Palate is fizzily carbonated and almost medium thick. Finish is very sour with vinegar and vinous berryness. Too juicy for my taste, I like my beers maltier. Bonus point for being organic.

williamstome (892) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Pink-plum pour, foamy pink head. Aroma is tart raspberry, with barnyard and sweet berry notes. Very tart and acidic, barnyardy. Intense, short-lived raspberry flavor. Not terribly exciting but well made.
