stoutpark (16) - - OCT 21, 2012
Elaborada con cerezas, esta cerveza de fermentación espontánea es de color rojo con una pequeña cabeza rosada que desaparece rápidamente . El aroma es fuerte y ligeramente dulce - a partir de la fermentación natural. El sabor es muy agradable, redondo y al mismo tiempo fuerte y muy seco con algunas notas de vinagre en el final.

maneliquor (2788) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Not sure what to say here. It’s basically everything you expect a well made kriek to be. Balanced, drinkable, slightly sweet and fairly tarty. Good drop

dfroms (82) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 21, 2014
Glass at the brewery, sampled alongside the Lou Pepe version. Vibrant red-magenta with small pink head. Aroma is amazing deep pie cherries, lemon, apple, light Brett. Taste is mouth-puckering cherry and apricot with a bit of grain, bitter almond, and citrus-pith bitterness. Much lighter body and less fruit character than the Lou Pepe. Very good.

Salmoniform (269) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Pink hue with white fizzy head. Aroma is funk, cherries, straw, lacto, cinnamon. Mouthfeel is amazing with a light body and great carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with huge cherry tartness followed by a dry lacto finish. Overall this brew is spectacular!

Douberd (1717) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2014
Bottle 375 ml at home, into a tulip glass. ABV 5%, bottled on 2009 Deep red colour, bright, clear body with good activity in it. Big fluffy head, pink-ish in colour, with good retention, collapsing to a thin layer of foam on the surface. Light lacing left behind. Aroma of cherries of course but not very intense, a bit sour, dusty sugar. Very sour taste with lots of cherries, some wood and cork. Thin body with good carbonation, quite tart on the palate. Nice beer, although I think is too sour for me still.

Grzesiek79 (2971) - Radom, POLAND - APR 13, 2014
Bottled in 2011. Drink After 3 years. Wspaniale huczne otwarcie korka, szampanowe musujace wrazenie na poczatku, szybko rosnaca lekko rozowawa piana. Ale trwala, spora i utrzymujaca sie do konca. W zapachu agrest, porzeczka i wisniowy likier. W smaku kwaskowate z lekka nutka slodyczy, bardzo lekka bo kwaskowatosc bardziej przewaza. Piwo po przelknieciu wyraznie kwaskowate, wspaniale owocowe, wisniowe i urzekajace. Do tego ekologiczne skladniki czynia tego lambicka super dobrym. Koncowka wyraznie wytrawna i kwaskowo octowa. Zwlaszcza po wypiciu juz zmieszanego piwa z osadem. Klasa i super dobry moj 3 letni Lambick. Goraco polecam

Maakun (326) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2014
Exactly 3 years old. Very nice red color with brownish hue. Small pink head that disappears very fast. Fresh red berries and sour cherries, light funky, fresh dough. Taste is very fruity, some sweetness but mainly a very deep sourness. Also has some dry bitterness like biting on a berry pit. Medium to light bodied with full feel because of the sourness. Really good.

Bottle from hot city pizza. Pours red with cherry taste. There is a nice balance of tart and sweet to finish.

WillRunForBeer (423) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 22, 2014
Glass at the source. Pours clouded red with a pinkish head. Scent is slight floral, citrus, dry cherry. Flavor follows nose, with some yogurt sour. Nice dry dark cherry, lemon, slight floral.
