Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2003
The aroma is sharp and slightly sweet - from the wild fermentation. The color is a lovely deep red and it has a small but disappearing head. The flavor is very nice, round and at the same time sharp and very dry with some vinegar notes in the end. A very nice kriek.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2006 (Bottle 37,5 cl) Beautiful, pale pinkish colour with a small, pinkish head. Pronounced cherry flavours, but they’re completely drowned by the extreme, vinegary sourness. Dry and quenching - but an extreme Kriek indeed. 100897

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2004 Brownish red. Very acidic nose. Some hints of cherry, some oak character, but mainly just tart and acidic. I really want to love this very authentic kriek, but it’s dryness is a step too far for me.

Rating for Cantillon De Dolle Proevers Kersengueuze 1991 (04-11-19):
Hazy brownish red. Acidic sweet cherry aroma. Typical Cantillon acidity with a twist of lemon. Sparkling, light mouthfeel. Vague toffeeish hint of oxidation. Good, but not stellar. (8/4/8/4/14)

2011-07-26, half bottle (cap and cork), vintage 1996 (bottled), 15 years old, 7-4-7-4-14=36
(cork in amazingly good conditions)

Amber color with red hue; medium sized off-white head. The aroma, sharp, typical Cantillon, strikes immediately; fiercely lemony. Driest beer, combining it with astringency and high acidity; lemon flavor, without traces of cherries; there is an interesting nutty profile (hazelnuts?); the final is lean, astringent, sour, sharp.
Extreme experience.

2004-06-12, bottle, at the Cantillon Brewery, 7-5-7-4-13=36
Beautiful hazy ruby color. A quick first impression of cherries and cherry kernels. Really sour! Still aggressive, the fruits hardly appear…
